How to copy and paste unformatted text in MSWord


  1. Choose Edit > Paste Special. A dialog box opens. (If you do not see this command listed, Personalized Menus may be enabled. Click on the expand menu icon (>>) at the bottom of the Edit menu to reveal hidden menu items.)
  2. Select “Unformatted Text” from the scrolling “As:” section. (In some Office variations, the choice is “Text” rather than “Unformatted Text”.)
  3. Click OK. MS Office pastes the text after removing all formatting information.
