There are also several free tools for auto-magically stripping the formatting info from clipboard text at the touch of a key combination or some such. Several options there... googling will turn up many.

Sometimes I'm so helpful even I can't stand it.

This is a feature request, please. I use it so much it other programs like Pages, it's frustrating to have to switch methods when I come to Accordance.

I notice now that you are copying from webpages. Maybe I'm missing something, but Paste and Match Style in Mail or Text Edit is not giving me any styles from webpages at all. So, I am not sure if we can implement this even if we want to.
It's not supposed to give you the style from the webpage, it's supposed to match the style currently in the document you are pasting into.
Try comparing the two: paste and paste and match style. In textedit, paste will leave all the formating intact. paste and match style will force it to be whatever is the style where your cursor is in your textedit document (rtf, not txt). So, if you are using Helvetica, 14 points, which is what my User Notes are, it will make it Helvetica, 14 points, in one fell swoop.
Evidently, you don't use this function much, but if you did, I'm sure you would see how simple and clean it is. When I am writing a sermon (in Pages), almost every paste I make (from a pdf, from the web, or from accordance itself) is done with Paste and Match Style.
Anyway, it's my favorite feature request for Accordance. Thanks for listening and trying to help.
