- The barebones style is Normal, and that's good to know when you need to get rid of formatting. Simply reset the content's style to Normal by choosing Normal from the Style control or pressing [Ctrl]+[Shift]+N. If you don't mind changing the style, this is an easy way to ditch formatting and start over.
- If you want to remove only formats applied in addition to a style -- without changing the current style -- press [Ctrl]+Spacebar.
