Transforming text to plain text!
When I want to transfer some text to a portable device such as a Palm or a Windows CE devices or simply for programming in HTML, the text must be plain text. I used to open Microsoft Word and export as "Plain Text/txt". It was very long and quite a pain. What bothered me is that the HTML files didn't save as easily as on a PC with Notepad. The main difference is that TextEdit support basic formatting but Notepad doesn't. All the text in Notepad is plain text. A simple function is available in TextEdit that transforms the text in plain text, removing all formatting and saving it as txt. It is then ready to be renamed as html or transformed into an ebook. The shortcut is "Shift-Command-T". Screenshot:
