PureText 2 by Steve Miller

Anyone who has ever copied a website pasted it into Word and ended up with URL references that take a gazillion clicks to remove will appreciate this one. I know I know, you could paste it into Notepad, then copy it again, then paste into Word, but why? PureText, which is totally free, saves you those steps.

From the hype…

“PureText is a simple app that helps you strip out formatting on text in the clipboard.
Have you ever copied some text from a web page, a word document, help, etc., and wanted to paste it as simple text into another application without getting all the formatting from the original source? PureText makes this simple. Just copy/cut whatever you want to the clipboard, click on the PureText tray icon, and then paste to any application. Better yet, you can configure a Hot-Key to convert and paste the text for you. The pasted text will be pure and free from all formatting.”

I like this one, also works in Excel and Powerpoint (who hasn’t ended up with the picture the URL the description after a quick copy from a website) and WordPress.

Well worth a look as are some of the other utilities on Mr Miller’s website.
