I'm an avid user of PureText, but I do use Word's native function
sometimes, and I have a keyboard shortcut for it (Alt+2).

Creating the shortcut itself was a little adventure in Word 2010. "All
Commands" in the Customize Ribbon screen calls it, "Keep Text Only," but
"All Commands" in the Customize Keyboard screen calls the same command,
"Paste Text Only".

There was a temporary caffeine shortage that day in Redmond...

It also depends on what type of paste Word does. These days, the default
mode for paste seems to be Paste as HTML (at least some of the time),
which is a disaster. I've had to spend time cleaning up the mess
resulting when authors paste tables from email into Word. They (the
tables, not the authors) turn into HTML tables and thus behave oddly.

Using Paste Special - Unformatted avoids that, as do the other methods
recently discussed for pasting plain text. The text ends up styled
according to whatever the style is for the paragraph at the cursor.

Using Paste Special - RTF is a sort of intermediate. It keeps formatting
and styles, which is useful if you are pasting between documents that
share a template. If the docs have different templates, the styles get
added; I haven't experimented to see how much text it takes these days
to transfer the style.

Word does offer endless fun.
