HOWTO paste unformatted text in Word 2008

I frequently need to paste unformatted text into Word, and it has long irked me that there’s no easy single-keystroke way to do this. However, Michel Bintener has a great solution:

…place the following AppleScript into ~/Documents/Microsoft User Data/Word Script Menu Items and assign it an easy-to-remember shortcut (I named mine “Paste without formatting\cV”; that way, I only need to hit Ctrl+V to paste the clipboard contents in plain text):

tell application "Microsoft Word"

paste special (text object of selection) data type paste text

end tell
