Stripping styling from the clipboard...

However, I, at least, am experiencing great joy just at present as this:

oncontrolKeyDown KEE
    ifKEE is "V" then
      puttheclipboardDataintofld "ff1"
    else
       passcontrolKeyDown
    endif
endcontrolKeyDown

popped UNSTYLED text into fld "ff1"
on MacOS 10.7.5 LiveCode 8.1.10

Your mileage may vary: but it's sure worth a try!

Richmond.
