Why this is important

You may be used to pasting using Ctrl + V or Cmd + V. When you paste this way, extra formatting information is often copied across – meaning that the pasted text can look odd, out of place, or just different from how you intended it to turn out.

Pasting without formatting strips away any extra formatting data, leaving you with plain text that will work much better on your website or document.

The keyboard shortcut you should know

If you are on a Windows device, you can paste without formatting by using the following shortcut: Ctrl + Shift + V.

If you are on a Mac device, use: Cmd + Shift + Option + V.
