There's an option to "paste special" in Word, but i don't see it in google docs? Really annoying that when I try to paste it ends up in glittering blink h2 font

To paste unformatted text, press CTRL - SHIFT - V

This works for me in Chrome.

If all else fails, paste the text into your address bar first to strip the formatting then copy and paste it from there into the google doc.

I love this tip. Never knew about the shift key modifier.
