Get Plain Text

By Alice Dev Team

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


If you’ve used the copy/paste functions in Mac OS before, you’ll appreciate how valuable Get Plain Text is! We use it ourselves every day. This app will lower your stress level and save you tons of time!
---Ready for Yosemite!---

Get Plain Text is a practical utility program to process text within Mac OS: It converts copied text into plain text.

It instantly removes everything unneeded: colours, typeface size, style (for example, boldface/italics), hyper-links, images, etc. In other words, everything that isn’t plain text! Now you can put plain text in your letters and documents using the copy/paste functions, without having to clean it up manually.

Get Plain Text will convert any bit of text into plain text, no matter where you copied it from (a website, PDF document or elsewhere). You can activate the feature manually, or check “Automatically remove formatting” to make the app take care of it every time you copy something.

Customer Reviews

Paid, but keeps asking for money

I purchased the app a few years ago. At the time, I don’t think there was a "free with nagging” version.

It usually works, but the problem is that it asks for tips even though I paid. The amount I paid was more than the minimum tip.

I’ve tried to contact the company twice, but no response.


It’s perfect in its simplicity. Does exactly what I need it to, and has become an easy shortcut in my workflow.
