INSTRUCTIONS Select text in a page and then right click and click "Copy as Plain Text..." or use the button in the extension popup.

HISTORY 8/8/2022 - Version 1.0.3 + Updated to Manifest V3 + Now works with the Chrome Web Store and special chrome:// pages, however it will not get linefeeds and the user has to use the right-click context menu > Copy as Plain Text... It will not work with a keyboard shortcut or the button in the popup. 10/11/2021 - Version 1.0.2 + Now works with PDFs using Google Chrome's default PDF Viewer, however it will not get linefeeds and the user has to use the right-click context menu > Copy as Plain Text... It will not work with a keyboard shortcut or the button in the popup. + Now works with Google Docs canvas element by using the "Copy as Plain Text..." button in the extension popup. It also preserves linefeeds and carriage returns. It will not work in Google Docs with the right-click context menu or the keyboard shortcut. 9/8/2021 - Version 1.0.1 - Fixed some license issues. 3/17/2021 - Version 1.0.0 - Fixed a bug for the full license where the clipboard viewer was not updating if the user pressed the "Copy as Plain Text..." button or the "Convert Clipboard to Plain Text" button in the extension popup. Convert clipboard button now also converts smart quotes if that option is selected. The "Convert smart quotes" option also converts primes and double primes now. 3/15/2021 - Version 0.9.9 - Added dark mode to popup. Also added new payments processor to purchase pro edition because Google has deprecated Chrome Web Store payments. Also fixed some scrollTop bugs when pressing the "Copy as Plain Text..." button or the "Convert Clipboard to Plain Text" button in the extension popup. 8/20/2017 - Version 0.9.8 - Now Copy as Plain Text works in Google Docs by using the "Copy as Plain Text..." button in the extension popup. (Note it does not work in Google Docs using the right-click menu or keyboard shortcut because Google Docs disables these from working.) Removed ALT- and ALT+ change_font function missing error from content.js. Changed chrome.tabs.executeScript in popup.js from "fontsize.js" to "content.js". 4/20/2017 - Version 0.9.7 - Added note in extension popup that explains that extensions do not work in special chrome:// pages or at the Chrome web store. 4/9/2017 - Version 0.9.6 - Some websites block the right click context menu so a button has been added to the extension popup to "Copy as Plain Text...". Also some websites such as Google Docs use their own secret way of editing and selecting text that does not work with extensions such as this one so added an option for "Convert Clipboard to Plain Text" which will convert any text in the current clipboard to plain text. 11/22/2016 - Version 0.9.5 - Bug Fix - Now only puts "Append as Plain Text..." context menu once instead of five times. 11/21/2016 - Version 0.9.4 - Bug Fix - Added max-width to Clipboard Viewer so it did not go off the screen. 11/17/2016 - Version 0.9 - Copy as Plain Text first release.

Thank you kindly for giving back the ability to copy as plain text, why would chrome take out something so basic? I really hate the stupidity of 'modern' (hack-job) browsers it drives me to distraction!
