"Clear formatting" keyboard shortcut

5 votes

I hate when I've accidentally assigned a heading to something, used strikethrough (esp w/a task), or simply wanting to change my formatting, and don't have one simple shortcut that I can use to just reset everything.

ctrl+shift+0 is, for lack of a better term, not ergonomic; I'm not sure if strikethrough/remove strikethrough even has a shortcut (the tooltip/hover text doesn't show one); and honestly, having to press one key combination for each thing I want to reformat in sequence is just a waste of time, and in some cases just too much to hold in working memory and can cause me to lose track of what I was doing in the first place.

Doing something like ctrl+x+ctrl+shift+v could be a workaround I guess, but considering that Gmail and Google Docs let you clear all formatting of selected text by using ctrl+\ (last item in the attached dropdown menu picture), I think it's safe to assume that shortcut is available for assignment in Chromium browsers, so my vote would be for that.
