Sometimes when you copy/paste text from other websites, the formatting retains. This happens in Laulima, Gmail, Google Docs, Word, and many other sites or programs with text editors. To remove formatting for a “clean” copy/paste job, follow these three steps. In this example, I will show how to remove formatting when you copy/paste into an email message in Gmail.
- Compose your message and copy/paste your desired information from another document, website, etc., into your message.
- Select the text and click on the “A” button in Gmail to pull up the formatting toolbar, and the “Tx” button to remove formatting on your selected text.
- Now the original formatting is stripped out and you can apply your own formatting using the formatting toolbar.
