Removing formatting from text

 

How do I remove formatting from text?

When you paste text from another source Word will tend to attempt to maintain the formatting of the source. Typically this formatting is NOT APA or MLA compliant formatting.

To paste text w/out formatting info attached:

In versions of Word 2007 or higher:

click on the little down arrow below the clipboard icon and select Paste Special

select Unformatted Text

In version of Word from 2003 an older:

click Edit, Paste Special

select Unformatted Text
