  • Quickly Remove Text Formatting

    When working with the contents of a rich text field, or adding content to a view in the designer, you might have some text that you want to remove the formatting from. If there is a lot of formatting, it can be time consuming to try to remove all of it using the menus, toolbars. Luckily, there are alternatives. Two approaches you can use to quickly remove formatting from the selected text are: the remove formatting keyboard shortcut and the Font task pane.


    APPROACH 1 – THE REMOVE FORMATTING KEYBOARD SHORTCUT

    To quickly remove formatting using the keyboard shortcut, first select the formatted text, and then press Ctrl+Space. This is very quick and convenient and will remove formatting such as font, font size, font color, highlight, bold, italic, underline, strikethrough, superscript, and subscript. There are other kinds of formatting that this approach will not remove. These can be removed using the second approach, described next.


    APPROACH 2 – THE FONT TASK PANE

    The keyboard shortcut in the first approach removes text-level formatting, but leaves the paragraph-level formatting, such as styles (i.e. headings 1-6), bulleted and numbered lists, indentation, alignment, and spacing.

    To quickly remove either text or paragraph-level formatting using the Font task pane , first select the formatted text, and then from the Font task pane, click Clear Formatting to remove text-level formatting, or click Normal to remove paragraph-level formatting. Click both Clear Formatting and Normal will return the text to a completely unformatted state.
