How to NOT copy text formatting in photoshop from a text layer?

I’m using Photoshop.
I want to copy text from a layer in one document and paste in a layer in second document without changing the formatting in the second layer.
What happen is that the text formatting also gets copied with the text and when I paste it in the other layer its formatting changes according to the copied layer. I just want to copy the text only.
Nobody seems to be asking this question.
I have some screenshot to illustrate my point.


  1. Copy the text “Lorem Ipsum”
  2. Select the layer “Team Working
  3. Paste the text.

You can see that the font of the title layer changes to the font of the body text layer.

Copy the text "Lorem Ipsum"
Select the title layer

Paste the text there


Edit menu > Paste Special > Paste without formatting

Or right click menu > Paste without formatting

You can hot-key it, as with any Adobe menu item, from Edit menu > Keyboard shortcuts…
