For both  Word 2000 and Word 2003, I want the Paste Special default to be Unformatted Unicode Text rather than HTML Format (which is the Word default). Is there a registry setting that controls the Paste Special default?

(To view the paste special options, select Edit menu > Paste Special. )

I don't know if there's a registry setting for that or not, but you can can use a macro to do the same thing:

Sub PasteSpecial()

' Paste Special Macro in Unformatted Unicode Text

   
    Selection.PasteSpecial Link:=False, DataType:=20, Placement:=wdInLine, _
        DisplayAsIcon:=False

End Sub
