Wprd 2010 - copy paste text - Ctrl T?

Posted on 2011-10-08
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
When I choose some text and I use the paste function in Word 2010 there are three options for how I want the pasted selection to look and the one that says text has a T beside it that makes it look like I should press some CTRL key combination instead of CTRL/V if I want to paste as text but if I choose CTRL-T nothing happens. What is the combo for pasting as text something I've copied with the CTRL-C command?

    sorry i hit enter, Ctrl+T is a hanging indent from the ALT menu the keys it has to the side are a reference, not intended to be used with ctrl. for example:

    ALT+F >> P

    that will bring up the file menu and P means print

    Following on the above, I have been doing some testing and the only way I can see is to use the Paste Special icon. No control key sequence works. The closest a Gooogle search comes is to assign a Macro.

    I use Paste Special extensively in Word and in Excel. What you can do (what I do) is add the appropriate Paste Special funtion to the Quick Access Toolbar on the top line.  So now one highlights the text, Ctrl-C to copy, click the single Quick Access button and done. Very fast and easy.  .... Thinkpads_User

    Thanks. I also found I can change the default to text when pasting from other programs which is where I use this the most. So then I can simply press CTRL-C and CTRL-V.
