I recently had a long term collaboration with a number of colleagues, where part of what we did was produce, edit, and agree upon finalized versions of text. We applied various formatting such as color, cursive, and bold to track the status of specific text blocks. At the end of it all, we needed to collate the disparate pieces of text into a single document.
Now, if you’ve ever been in the same situation, you’ll be intimately familiar with the aggravation of manually removing the text. To the rescue comes another hotkey;
Ctrl+Shift+V – or
Option+Cmd+Shift+V on Mac. I’ve tested it in Google Docs and Sheets, as well as in Microsoft Word and Excel, and found it works nicely everywhere.
