Plain text is a simple web-app you can use to write and edit in plain text, clear text formatting, and create .txt files.

Clear text formatting

When you copy/paste content from a Word document, Google Doc, or most any other software or website, it comes with hidden code.

This code is what controls things like font, text size, and other formatting. Often, this isn't an issue, but some applications work much better when you paste plain text, rather than formatted text.

This can also be done with the Notepad software.

  • Write or paste your content into

  • In the upper right corner, select > Download (Plain Text).

  • Use the downloaded .txt file wherever needed.

You can also create .txt files in Notepad, TextEdit, & Word.
