Via a passing mention in PCWorld magazine, I just found a real time saving little computer utility that I already LOVE after using it for just two days.
I copy and paste all day long, usually into Thunderbird email, and text formatting from other sources loves to follow it into Tbird, which can be a real pain.
Ever since changing over to Win 7 and Tbird a while back, I’ve been copying text first into notepad, then copying it out of Notepad again before finally pasting it into Tbird (or any other software). That removes the formatting and makes it look presentable in an email.
Turns out, the free little utility called “PureText” removes this formatting in one step, without the extra copy/paste. That may not sound like a big deal to some folks, but if you spend much time on PC’s, you’ll know it’s a HUGE time and aggravation saver! (I copied this article from my word processor directly into this blog post using PT and [Windows-V] with none of the usual reformatting necessary)
A guy named Steve Miller authored and freely offers this handy software, and other utilities, at SteveMiller.net/apps.
Many thanks, Steve! PureText’s a real keeper!
God bless you and yours,
