Usually, when I want to pass text from somewhere to OmniOutliner, I just copy it (cmd-C) and paste it (cmd-V) and the original formatting is not retained, which is what I want. I want the formatting of the OO template I’m using. I know that I can paste with the original style if necessary, but it rarely is, for me anyway. This works with my usual apps.
However, when I want to transfer text from an OmniFocus note to OmniOutliner, pasting with cmd-V keeps the original formatting, exactly as if I had used the “paste with the original style” command. To get the formatting of the template I’m using I have to either first paste the text into another app that doesn’t retain formatting, in my case BBEdit, use “Clear style”, or remove the style using the inspector. What I want is for the text from the note to be pasted without retaining any of the styles from OF.
I’m using OF 2.12.2 Pro and OO 5.3 Pro.
Is there a reason for this behavior? Can it be changed?
P.S. I didn’t know whether to post this question in the OF or the OO forums…
