Pure Paste 


Pure Paste (com.sindresorhus.pure-paste) is a Mac OS X software application that has been discovered and submitted by users of iBoostUp.

The latest version that our iBoostUp users have reported seeing on their systems is Pure Paste 7. The most popular version of this application used by our users is version 11. Pure Paste requires macOS 12.3 or later.

Publisher Description:
How many times have you pasted some text into an email and ended up with a mess of different font sizes?

Pure Paste lets you paste as plain text by default. It sits in the menu bar and clears formatting (fonts, colors, bold, links, tables, etc.) from the text you copy. However, it does not touch unrelated content like files, images, etc. It also ignores content copied from password managers.

You can also choose to manually clear formatting whenever needed instead of automatically.

The app is free without ads because I love making apps. Consider leaving a nice review.


- Automatically clears formatting
- Hide menu bar icon
- Exclude certain apps
- Optionally preserve links
- Remove tracking parameters from URLs (Google UTM, Twitter, etc)
- Launch at login
- Shortcuts support


Why not just use the Paste and Match Style menu item or V?

- That menu item is not available in all apps.
- The keyboard shortcut is hard to remember and type.
- This app can exclude certain apps, preserve links, and also remove tracking parameters from URLs.


The app accesses your clipboard but does not store or send it anywhere. It is not even able to connect to the internet due to self-imposed restrictions that are enforced by macOS (no network entitlement).
