Have a question about Get Plain Text? Need an alternative?

Get Plain Text is a practical utility program to process text within: It converts copied text into plain text. If you've used the copy/paste functions in Mac OS before, you'll appreciate how valuable Get Plain Text is! We use it ourselves every day. This app will lower your stress level and save you tons of time!

It instantly removes everything unneeded: colors, typeface size, style (for example, boldface/italics), hyper-links, images, etc. In other words, everything that isn't plain text! Now you can put plain text in your letters and documents using the copy/paste functions, without having to clean it up
