One solution that I'm sure somebody will bring up is to edit the maker.ini file to alter the ClipboardFormatsPriorities item to put UNICODE TEXT and/or TEXT at the front of the list. That works beautifully when pasting content from an external file/document via the Windows clipboard, but I believe that it does not apply when copying (or cutting) and pasting within a FrameMaker document, when FrameMaker Interchange Format (which retains character formatting) is always used by default.
Within a FrameMaker document, you have two options: 1) Use the Edit>Paste Special command to paste the copied content as "Text" rather than "FrameMaker Interchange Format", which retains character formatting.This approach requires multiple moust clicks or multiple keyboard inputs to accomplish, so is kind of a PITA if you do this frequently. 2) Use one of the various "paste plain text" utilities to strip the character formatting before (or while) pasting. Two of the free tools I have used for this purpose are PureText and HovText, both of which work just fine. Most "plain text" utilities give you an icon in the system tray to convert the clipboard to plain text on demand, and most also let you designate a shortcut key combination to do the format stripping and pasting with a single command (I use the Windows key that is next to the Crtl key along with V for plain text paste). -Fred Ridder From: alastair.d...@imgtec.com To: email@example.com Subject: Blocking local formatting when copying Date: Mon, 19 Aug 2013 10:31:23 +0000 When I copy text from, say, a heading, and past it into a Body paragraph, the font formatting from the heading is copied along with the text. Is there a hotkey to remove local formatting (overrides) or a way of avoiding this? Alastair Dent Technical Author Imagination Technologies Limited t: +44 (0)113 242 9814 www.imgtec.com
