Add a SIMPLE "paste as text" keyboard shortcut.
I just saw the most ridiculous shortcut reference for "paste as text only" in PowerPoint: Alt, H, V, S, Up Arrow, Enter.
That up arrow part doesn't work, but wow, so many fingers. Then I found that hitting CTRL and then T after CTRL+V works. Better, but seriously, why is there no one-shot key command for paste as text in this day and age?
I got a shortcut set up with the automation app Keyboard Maestro that works across all apps

Add the Paste as Text command to the QAT, then count it's position on the QAT. If it's the 5th icon, the Alt + 5 will run the command.

Just right click and select the paste as text option out of the 4 pasting options?
Would love a simpler shortcut. I use this all the time
