Try this.

Select the entire document using CTRL+A and then press CTRL and the spacebar to remove all word formatting.

don't know if someone can make a macro for that... i guess it's possible

...and i suppose you already know these to ways to do it:

selecting everything in Word and copy paste into notepad or

in Word... using “Save as” “Save as type" select plain text... save...
