I did an install of Scrivener Version: - 03 Oct 2018 on a Windows 10 computer.

In the paste, I know I used to be able to copy formatted text from any source and paste it as plain text into Scrivener using Ctrl+Shift+V.

That doesn't appear to work in this install.

Is this some new 'feature' for Scrivener?

If not, how could I fix this?

It's horrific having all those different styles at once.

    Should be under Edit>Paste and Match style. – weakdna Jan 9 at 23:25

    I don't think this is specific to technical writing, nor does expertise in technical writing necessarily help answer this question. It seems, rather, squarely a question about how to use Scrivener (which is on topic for us as being a specialized writing tool, see our subject scope). I removed the technical-writing tag. – a CVn Jan 10 at 10:05

    a simple trick to remove formatting from text is to paste it first into a simple notepad application and then copy again from there – BKlassen Jan 10 at 16:32
