Paste without formatting

Get the application puretext from www.stevemiller.net/puretext. This handy application will clear all formatting from text you have stored in your clipboard. Nearly every publisher has a style sheet that they require you use, and frankly if you have any Word skill at all you always use styles for titles and headings at the very least. The most annoying thing though is that the text you copy from SSMS has formatting in it, so when you paste it into your documents you have this formatting that you need to get rid of in lieu of the stuff that the publisher wants. With Puretext you simply use a slightly different paste key (like Windows-V) and you get the plain text you need. Same time estimate for this feature. Before I found this application I used to paste into Notepad, the copy it to the clipboard and then into Word. Very tedious.
