Convert to notepad text feature RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    A lot of the time I find myself copying text from an Office app / webpage or similar, opening notepad, pasting it into notepad and then copying and pasting it from notepad to somplace else such as Outlook.

    I would love to see a standard "Convert to notepad text" feature in all Windows UI's where approriate that would do the above automatically!

    Anyone else?

  • It will break apps that expect a clipboard round trip. 

    Outlook supports pasting as plain text. Look under the paste special menu.
