I don’t know if I’m going to explain this clearly enough but here goes.
If you ever wanted to clear the formatting of text (think size, style, spacing, etc.), paste the text into the address bar of your web browser. Then copy it again and voila, your text won’t be bold, red, 32 pt. font, so on.
It works like a charm every time.
I do this so often.
Try it. See the magic with your own eyes.
Maybe you knew about this years ago. In that case, you should have told me earlier!
