I just learned a new trick: How to make your G2G posts look so much nicer!

+25 votes
When I try to paste text from various other sources into my G2G posts, they often come out with text too large, or too tiny, etc., and the more I try to manipulate them, the worse they look.  Now, thanks to Melanie Paul, I've learned to use the icon from the second row of the toolbar that looks like an italic "T" with a subscript "x."  All you need to do is highlight your pasted text and click that icon, and it converts your text to the usual font and size.  Works like a charm!

From what I see occasionally on G2G, I'm not the only one who could use this tip.

Gonna get at least one more  post of this in before doing such will get me banned. :(

Thanks for that trick; I'll use it if ever some text gets past me (which happens all the time!).  

I try to change mine on the fly as I paste it.  Instead of CTRL + right click "paste" I select instead "paste as plain text."  

If you're one for CTRL + C, or X, or V, you can instead select CTRL + Shift + V for "paste as plain text."
