Not sure if this has been requested before?

Add the ability when pasting into a book/module to specify different formatting options for Paste or just an additional options to paste as plain text.
* This is not about coping and pasting bible verses

Microsoft Word has multiply Paste as options
Their one option is "Keep text only"

Google Docs has "Paste", CTRL+V and "Paste without formatting", CTRL+SHIFT+V.

I agree with this enhancement request. In addition to "Cntl+V" for paste (which is already in TheWord), having another keyboard shortcut -- or any method really -- of "paste text only" or "paste plain text" or "paste without formatting" -- it's all the same thing, would be most welcome.

Note: I do see in TheWord Keyboard Shortcuts ("https://www.theword.net/manual/index.html?shorcuts.htm" ("shorcuts", not shortcuts, sic) ) two paste options:
CTRL+SHIFT+V Paste back verse text from Clipboard monitor to the clipboard
and
CTRL+V Paste

The CTRL+V ("Paste") is just the regular (formatted) paste, and I don't think the CTRL+SHIFT+V does what we want (I cannot get it to work for some reason). So, we are looking for a new shortcut that lets us paste, for instance into a "Topic", say from "MS Word" or from a webpage, without bringing in all the formatting as well. Thanks!
