ability to remove formatting when copy-past from other sources

Copy-and-Paste functions often carry invisible formatting in addition to the actual text. While this can be convenient, it is also often the source of glitches and hard-to-find bugs in the code. Similarly, copy-and-past from different sources leads to different formats in the same text area.

To avoid this, it can be convenient to have an option to remove all formatting prior to past using a "past from word" or "remove all formatting" option.

    The new CKEditor has been tweaked to strip most of the formatting when copying, keeping just the basic formats to prevent the bugginess.  However if you wanted to be sure that no formatting was copied over alt all, then pressing ctrl+shift+V on the keyboard will strip the formatting while you are pasting.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Patrick Mulligan

    Making a list of your office wor is a very hectic and a boring task to do. I never like to make lists for my office works that's why I usually get it done by because they make excellent sheets and in less time.
