Hi guys,

When I copy text from Word for example, the font of my text field in Affinity changes to SymCat (it's a weird font, I have no idea why I have it installed :D). Anyway, if I copy it first in Notepad, which doesn't support text formatting, and then I copy it to Affinity, everything is cool. But it's way too time consuming. Is there a way to stop Affinity from formatting text I paste in a text field? I only need the text content, I don't want the formatting from another program, doesn't make much sense :)

Thank you,

Chris

That’s quick and easy! I was going to suggest ‘Edit > Paste Special... > Unicode Text’ (which is a marginally longer way of getting the same result, as far as I can see).

You can assign a keyboard shortcut via Preferences, Keyboard Shortcuts if you want one. None exists by default.
