TextScrub removes all formating from text on your clipboard. It scrubs away all font-related styling, leaving only pure clipboard text, ready for pasting. Additionally it can also normalize white spaces, remove tabs or empty lines, and you can even set up your own text substitutions.

Here’s how it works
Its super simple! Instead of doing a copy-paste, you just copy-scrub-paste.
TextScrub lives on the status bar and you can invoke it with a simple click, or by your own custom hotkey.

• Removes all formatting (such as font, color, size, indentation, etc.)
• Normalizes white spaces
• Removes empty lines
• Set up custom text substitutions
• Invoke with a simple click or with a keyboard shortcut
• Resolution support for Retina displays
• For OS X 10.7+
• Leave the 'To' field empty to change to nothing
• Regular expressions

What’s New

Version 1.1

This is the One

I went through many many clipboard scrubbers in the mac store and elsewhere for years loking for something thatI could map a simple ket command to. This is the one I settled on—it has been working for me for the last couple years great.

I map CMD-N to the scrub feature then I can copy with CMD-C, (not i decide if i want i scrubbed, if i do I hit CMD-N) then I hit CMD-V to paste.

When I worked on windows I used Clipboard fusion to do this and it worked great, but it took a while to find somthing that worked like that with Mac.

Very Useful App

Changed my review from 4 to 5 stars for the update. I've had this app for over a year now and it's one of those that I use almost everyday. With the added feature of using regular expressions to alter/delete text (which the developer nicely informed me about in a personal email), this app has become even more powerful.

Everything an app should be.

I get a lot of apps. They all ask to be rated but the never do quite what I want so I am ambivalent about doing so. I wanted to rate this app because it filled at need I had to get a block of text with multiple formats and spacing into a unified format.

Copy the text, scrub it with a key combination, and paste it back in. This app addresses a problem and does it well. 5 stars.
