Fix Copy & Paste Issue

Ever tried to copy and paste something on the web into an email or a form and found that it had a bunch of formatting on it? Maybe the font is really big, or has colors in the background, something like that. It’s super annoying and frustrating. Just wanting clean information without the extra formatting, but that formatting comes through with it.

Did you know there’s a way to solve this? It’s called a TVAX! In all honesty, I actually coined that phrase and made it up because I needed it so often. Basically it’s based on an acrynom which goes [Control + T] which opens new tab, [Control V] which pastes whatever text that has the formatting on it. Next, is [Control A] which copies all the selected text in the browser bar and then [Control X] which cuts out everything in the browser bar. After the TVAX you have clean unformatted text, without any additional colors, sizes or formats.

The finished command line looks like:

[Control + T] & [Control V] & [Control A] & [Control X] = Unformatted Text

Jophiel grew up on a ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana near Chico Hot Springs. Working on the ranch instilled work ethic and self motivation. Filled with this drive, Jophiel started mowing the local school's yards twice a month throughout the summers, at the age of 12. He moved to Billings in 2004, where he has been deeply involved in the local business community ever since. A serial entrepreneur, Jophiel has ran multiple businesses in our local community. The first business, a janitorial and carpet cleaning company, founded in 2005, has employed over 50 locals. Moving on to the media industry, Jophiel and several partners founded Green Directory Montana in the spring of 2007. Green Directory's sustainability ranking software awarded points based on sustainable or "green" actions. These points counted towards a business's total "Green Score," which in turn ranked them against other businesses in their category and throughout the entire site. It also featured a limited edition print version distributed annually. A business acquisition allowed Jophiel to focus on new projects, and a few close business colleagues and Jophiel started Rocky Mountain Mr. & Ms. Magazine, a lifestyle publication for men and women in the Magic City. After a year and a half at the helm of RM3 Magazine, the business was purchased. He now runs a web development company SkyPoint Studios and fathers his son Jaoquin, who plays football, basketball, soccer, and is learning snowboarding from his dad. Recently, has expanded to locations in Havasu, Arizona & Vegas. SkyPoint Studios is a market leader in both Billings & Havasu and Jophiel is working on building that same level of market dominance in Vegas. Specialties: Extensive experience in online and offline business. Especially savvy at WordPress, and operate several sites, one example is the blog: Check out for the latest projects from SkyPoint Studios.
