    Paste Plain Text (2003 SP2)

    I frequently need to paste plain text in a document. Right now I have a Paste Special button my tool bar or I use Alt+V as a keyboard shortcut. The problem is that I would rather not have the whole Paste Special dialogue box come up. I have to select Unformatted Text from the list of options. I would rather have a keyboard shortcut or button that just pastes the unformatted text.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can do the following:

    1) Create a macro in a module in your Normal.dot template:

    Sub PasteUnformatted()
    On Error Resume Next
    Selection.PasteSpecial DataType:=wdPasteText
    End Sub

    2) Select Tools | Customize...
    Activate the Commands tab.
    Select Macros in the list of Categories on the left.
    Select the PasteUnformatted macro in the list of Commands on the right (it's probably listed like Normal.Module1.PasteUnformatted or something similar).
    Drag it to a convenient place on a toolbar.
    You can also assign a keyboard shortcut to the macro.
