I created a button in VB.Net windows application to copy a ritchtextbox.  I keep getting the following when I paste.  How do I get rid of it?

Dim data As string = Richtextbox.RTF
Clipboard.SetText(data, TextDataFormat.text)

This is what it also copy and need to remove.

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fnil\fcharset0 Microsoft Sans Serif;}}
\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs17 Sub Format()\par

That is what RTF code looks like. When you use the RTF property that is what you are going to get. If you want just the text, then use the Text property, not the RTF property.

Okay so using the Text, it removed that RTF Property.

However, it's just one long string with return carriage like the two boxes.  How can I do it so that it is displaying output correct?

Currently it's like the following:

Would like to get it so that it shows as followed:
