Quickly convert any text to plain text

Some apps don’t have “Paste unformatted” or “Paste and match style” command. So you want to convert your text to plain text before pasting. What’s the quickest way to do it on a Mac? Here’s what I do:

  1. Control+Space (Spotlight, it may be ⌘Space on your machine).
  2. ⌘V.
  3. ⌘A.
  4. ⌘C.
  5. Control+Space again.

Now whatever you had in your clipboard is converted to plain text.
