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.
