Clipboard History, paste as plain text?

Hi!

 

would really love a way to have a shortcut (maybe via Ctrl, command, option etc) to allow to paste as plain text

 

is something like that available? If not is it possible to requests features in Alfred and if so where does one do that?

 

best regards

Simple to make as a Workflow. Connect a Hotkey Trigger (with Argument set to macOS Clipboard Contents) to a Copy to Clipboard Output (with Automatically paste to front most app ticked).

On the Alfred Feature Suggestions forum. But seeing as it’s so simple to achieve as a Workflow, I’d say it’s unlikely it would be accepted as a new feature.

Hitting ⌘C on a clipboard history result copies it to the clipboard, so you can add a Hotkey that first simulates ⌘C, then gets the clipboard contents with pbpaste and finally pastes it to the active application as described above.
