The tool is especially useful for copying text from web pages and is very simple to use. Just copy text from a web page as usual and paste it using the shortcut key (Win + V).
Pure Text is a free, portable application, so no installation needed. The tool removes rich formatting from text such font face, font style, font color, paragraph, margins, character spacing, bullets, subscript, superscript, tables, charts, pictures, embedded objects, etc. However, it does not modify the actual text.
PureText is basically equivalent to opening Notepad, doing a paste, followed by a select all, and then a copy. It works on Windows XP / Vista.
