We use ms shareoint at work (accessed from internet explorer 8) and are constantly copying and pasting within Internet Explorer - to and from ms office docs, etc. Formatting of text very often gets dorked up moving between these and takes considerable time to clean up.

Is there a way to do copy and or paste plain text in internet explorer 8? (without having to use notepad as an intermediary) Is there a user level plugin or add-on to do this?

In Firefox (which we are not allowed to use at work) one of the most useful plugins for me is "Copy Plain Text" - I just right click and 'copy as plain text' or 'paste as plain text' - hoping there is something equivalent for IE8 (that is installable without administrator privileges).

Thank you.

Hi Eric,

Most (all?) Office apps allow you to use Paste Special|Unformatted text, or something equivalent to achieve what you're after. Is that not suitable for your needs?
