    Hey there!

    Often I copy something from a dokument to paste it into my Wordpress
    blog. To prevent the formatted text to reappear in Wordpress, og paste
    it first into TextEdit to unformat, and then copy paste again.

    Does any of you guys know if there is a keyboard shortcut to paste the
    text in the clipboard unformatted?

    Hope I make myself clear :)

    I have heard that ALT + Apple + V sometimes act the way I talk about.
    But only in specific programs.

    Well. Guess there is no global function for this. Someone just told me
    there was, so I hoped :)

    Yes, some of us do know.

    There are Apple scripts described in http://db.tidbits.com/article/9408
    and http://db.tidbits.com/article/9503 which might do what you want.

    Cheers,

    I'm a newbie and I just looked in and I see these notes dated 2008 (?) I am wondering why this stuff has not been deleted and later information and questions posted - or am I on the wrong page
