Hello all, just wondering if LO has a "paste and match style" function, such as the one available on mac osx (edit > paste and match style or option shift command v)

Thanks.

EDIT: I am closing this question now, so I will clarify this to anyone wanting a concise answer to this question:

TO PASTE AND MATCH STYLE IN WRITER:

MAC: Command + Option + Shift + v then select "unformatted text".

WINDOWS: Ctrl + Alt + Shift v then select "unformatted text".

TO PASTE AND MATCH STYLE IN CALC:

MAC/WINDOWS: Left-click the cell you want to paste into > Right-click > Paste Special > Unformatted Text

Closed for the following reason the question is answered, right answer was accepted by appreciatethehelp

Hello @appreciatethehelp, my last Mac was in the "Performa" days ... so what is it precisely that the "paste and match style" function does?

I think that what you need is Paste special → Unformatted text or Ctrl Alt Shift V (yes, a four key shortcut :) )

I cannot use a PC with out Steve Miller's wonderful PureText utility.

If I paste with Ctrl+V, it pastes normally including its format.

If I paste with Windows_key+V, PureText strips off all the formatting and pastes just the plain text, picking up the format at the position where the text is pasted.

It is absolutely magic and it works in any application.

If this helps then please tick the answer and/or show you like it with an uptick.

But of course! I had used the shortcut contained in the discussion you linked before, but had completely forgotten about it. Thanks!
