option to clear HTML markup when switching from Bold editor to Plain editor? #652
I was just experimenting with the Bold editor, and found that any note I create with it has some form of HTML markup (paragraph tags, etc). If I then switch to the plain editor, all of this markup is visible.
Is there a way to to convert back to truly plain text when switching editors? Or another preferred method to pull plain text from a note created with the Bold editor?
There isn't a direct way to convert back to plain text only, but my suggestion would be to first copy the text while in the Bold Editor (ctrl/cmd+a, ctrl/cmd+c) then switch to the plain editor and replace all the HTML with what you just copied (ctrl/cmd+a, ctrl/cmd+v).
This will place the text in regular format as expected and leaves line breaks in tact.
Note: There is no way to switch back and forth however; once you switch back to plain text and overwrite the HTML, your formatting will be lost and you cannot go back to the HTML version unless you switch to Bold editor and re-format manually.
