How to paste text in Google Docs without formatting [Tip]

When editing a document in Google Docs, you can copy and paste text from any source. The thing is it doesn’t show any option that would allow you to paste unformatted text. If you go to its “Edit” tab, you can only see the standard Paste (CTRL + V) option but there’s no support for paste as plain text or paste special.

While you can choose to paste the text to a notepad first before transferring it to Google Docs, it’s undeniably troublesome. So what would be your next best option? Well, here’s a simple solution to your problem.
