I have this online spreadsheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17tR99ldMbQKWXZVXIL7efJJzunq26-xtVu1wGNyadOE/edit#gid=727799739 and would like to prevent the change of font and font size so that Arial 8 with no bold is all that is possible to be added to the sheet.  

It turns out there is just no way to get people used to pasting as plain text so this step is needed.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Can you have a macro in this worksheet ? not familiar with Google docs. Don't understand your comment about JavaScript. My macro would be in VBA.

Best thing for you is to save the file you have on your pc and attach a copy of it in here and will take it from there.

If you're viewing online you can use ctrl+shift+V to paste plain text.  Have you tried that?

We haven't. Thanks for that!  It might be a good workaround barring any JavaScript which would be ideal.

Yes, you don't want to be writing a Google docs plugin if you don't have to!

Placing instructions or relaying instructions to simply do ctrl+shift+V has resolved the issue.  Thank you!
