Frequently Asked Questions
How do I install the plugin?
The easiest way is to login in to your WordPress dashboard and go to Plugins » Add New and search for “Paste as text“. Just click Install Now and then activate the plugin.
You can also download Paste As Plain Text By Default from the WordPress plugin directory and upload it to your WordPress website.
Are there any plugin settings?
No, just activate the plugin to enable the paste plain text by default feature.
Can I override the paste as text setting in a specific element?
Sure, just click the Paste as text icon (T) in your editor to deactivate the setting for that specific element. However, the next time you edit the element, paste as plain text will be active again by default.
I like this plugin! How can I show my appreciation?
We are really happy if you could post a review on the WordPress Plugin Page.
Last but not least, you can buy us a coffee with one click (using PayPal or a credit card).
Thanks for your support!
Does it work with Gutenberg Block Editor?
The plugin has no effect on the Gutenberg Block Editor but there are no known conflicts either. So if you use a page builder like Divi Builder on your pages and Gutenberg on your posts, you will have plain text by default on your pages but not on your posts.
We have no plans to add support for the Gutenberg Block Editor. Look out for a possible native feature for paste as plain text in Gutenberg on Github.
Do I have to install the Classic Editor plugin?
No, it will work with Divi Visual Builder, Elementor, Beaver Builder and WPBakery without using the Classic Editor plugin.
Could you add support for more page builders / editors?
We have no plans to add support for Gutenberg but we could add support for other WordPress page builders and editors in the future.
