Ever copy some text and found it has some weird formatting you can’t get rid of? In some programs, like word, you can right-click and choose a plain text option when you paste.

I have a method I like better. Every time I copy text from just about any source, I paste it straight into Notepad and then copy and paste again from there.

That way whether the text is heading into an email, Photoshop, a document, or some other destination, I don’t bring any unwanted formatting with me.
