Ctrl C to copy text without style Opera

  • Interested copy text (Ctrl C) without copying the styles from the page. Somewhere in the settings you can disable the copying of styles? Versions of Opera 12 is allowed.

    Thank you

  • In my 11 you can't even copy any code (sic), only plain text.
    Well, if you're talking about this new chromish 'Opera', then I guess most modern applications - including some browsers I know - have a right-click option to paste your clipboard stuff as a plain text: Google Chrome for sure, Firefox maybe, in Presto Opera I guess you can't paste formatted even, in Open Office you have a drop-arrow menu option (within the paste button) to paste as a plain text also.

    Have you checked the context menu if there is a "Copy text" option there?
    Actually, copying with formatting is rather handy. You can always lose the formatting later on - like recopying through an ascetic text app, Wordpad or something.
    Even better, you can create a textarea html, bookmark it at hand and then use that way right in the browser.

  • thanks for your reply. I thought in the settings you can disable the copy style. I often use the Ctrl C and Ctrl V, I am very uncomfortable that I can not choose the right way to copy me . I am sorry for my english

  • She found the solution
    Go to the directory of Opera, install «Download Chrome Extension», clicking on the "Add to Opera». Before installation, we need to activate developer mode. This is done with the aim of gaining the ability to install applications not only from the official store Opera. To do this go to Menu -> Tools -> Extensions. Here, in the upper right corner, put a checkmark "Developer mode".
    Now go to the directory Chrome Web Store and download the application you want swing here

  • I also noticed this deficiency in Opera 31 (can't copy unstyled text). The Plain Text Copy And Paste extension is not a 100% solution, but it's a workable one nonetheless, and it works (select text using the mouse while looking at the screen, then look down at the keyboard, and press Ctrl+C to copy).
