What's New

2018 release!
• How about one less step to paste as plain text? Now, you can (in many cases) copy plain text without leaving the app you're using!
1. Highlight text
2. Tap "Share..." if available (if not, then this new feature is unavailable from where you are copying. In this case, copy and open the app as usual.)
3. At the bottom of the pop-up, tap "More" and then enable "Copy Plain Text"
4. You now have the option to copy as plain text whenever you tap "Share..."!
• Hebrew localization added

App Description

Convert text in the clipboard to plain text. Are you tired of pasting text into an app such as Mail, only to find that the text is too large or the wrong color? Using Plain Text Paste, you can now paste the current clipboard content as plain text into any app. All formatting (colors, fonts, and sizes) are automatically removed from the text in the clipboard. You can even view and edit the plain text currently in the clipboard!

How it works (easy way):
1. Highlight text
2. Tap "Share..." if available (if not, use steps below)
3. Tap "Copy Plain Text"*
4. Paste the unformatted text into any app you wish

Or (classic way):
1. Copy text from any app
2. Open Plain Text app (split view supported**)
3. The text in the clipboard is automatically converted to plain text
4. Paste the unformatted text into any app you wish

Take control of your clipboard by viewing and editing text, and clearing all formatting using Plain Text Paste.

Notes:
* First time use: At the bottom of the pop-up, tap "More" and then enable "Copy Plain Text"
** Word and character count available only in full-screen mode.
