Photoshop: Paste Unstyled Text

In Photoshop I would like to be able to paste “unstyled” text as an option. In OS X one can do this by holding Command-Option-Shift-V. The pasted text will then take on the default style as determined by the document, losing any specific formatting from its source. At present, if I want to paste the content of one styled field to another, Photoshop forces me to roundabout to an external editor, strip the styling there, then return to PS to paste. Life could be simpler.

In the meanwhile, perhaps using type styles could solve your workflow issues?

That is a serviceable workaround, I’ll give you that. But it still requires more planning and thought — more cognitive load — than the simpler unstyled paste. Not to take away from your suggestion, just differentiating the two, for the record.

Hey Adobe, what about this 3 year old idea?
I would really love to paste unformatted text  :)

This would be a seriously simple tool addition, and incredibly valuable. Any new response from Adobe on this one? Other Adobe apps already have this, so it would only make their suite more consistent.

Hello Adobe, can you please tell us, if this feature will be implemented sometime? In the Photoshop CC 2015.5 Update it is sadly not.

It would help me a lot!

This feature is under consideration for a future release.  As their is a nigh-infinite number of features to work on but a limited amount of time and people, we have to prioritize based on need and impact.  If this (or any other) change would make a big difference, please share your stories so we can use that information to help prioritize the work.

Thanks,
David

Thanks for your answer, dear David.

For me and a team of web designers layouting dozens of different ad formats copying and pasting text headlines from one format to another it would make a huge difference if could do that without the detour of copy/pasting/copy everything in the chrome adressbar to reset any type formatting.

Since this thread and wish is at least 4 years old, I would say it could be this features turn in the request cue ;)

Thanks a lot
Malte
