Dear PC Doctor:

Sometimes I copy and paste text from one program or document into another. At work, where I use Word, I use Notepad to strip all the behind-the-scenes formatting from the block of text. At home, I just got a MacBook Air. Is there an Apple program like Notepad that I can use?


Dear May:

Yes. Apple has TextEdit. Just open it up, paste in your block of text, and it will strip the formatting. You will then be able to copy and paste it into your new document and work with it as you wish.

I hope this helps!
Until next time,
Happy Computing!
PC Doctor
