Paste without style on the mac

Aug 02, 2023

make Paste and Match Style the default for pasting by mapping the menu item to the ⌘V keyboard shortcut...

There are some apps where I do want a keyboard shortcut for pasting styled text. The screenshot above shows one: TextEdit. Most of the time I’ll rely on ⌘V to paste text without styling, but if I do want to keep the text’s attributes, ⇧⌘V is just a keystroke away.

I didn't realize that I've wanted exactly this for years
