    Default QTextEdit + paste rich text as plain text only

    hello,

    when using QTextEdit the paste() inserts every format supported by the rich-text.

    How to make that when pasting it is inserted only plain text if available in clipboard ? or if there is rich-text in clipboard to convert it plain text and after that to paste it.

    thanks

    the answer was quite easy, sorry for that.

    Qt Code:
    1. void QTextEdit::insertFromMimeData ( const QMimeData * source )
    2. {
    3. void QTextEdit::insertPlainText ( source->text() );
    4. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode

    I guess you could have adjusted QTextEdit::acceptRichText as well.
