Use the Ctrl+Space keyboard shortcut to remove formatting from text in Microsoft Office programs like Word, Excel and Outlook.  This command strips fonts, styles, indenting, etc. and leaves only the plain text.

To remove text formatting:

  1. Select text in any Microsoft Office program.
  2. Press Ctrl+Space.  The formatted text is converted to plain text.

    This does not work to create a break in the blue quotation line in outlook 2010.
