How to paste as plaintext

What I did:
paste text like

option mac '11:22:33:44:55:66 aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff’

What happened:

  1. #aaaa pasted as a tag
  2. :bb: pasted as a flag icon

What I expected:

need raw format to collect code\configration etc.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):

latest version/os

The way to prevent this kind of parsing is by first typing a backslash (\) and then paste the text. It should prevent formatting. However, I noticed this is currently not preventing the emoji parser, we’ll see if that too can be prevented in the same way.

As a temporary workaround you could first activate the Fixed Width character style under the format menu (or by typing Cmd-L), and then paste the text. That too should prevent formatting.

Update: In Agenda 16.1 we added a dedicated Paste As menu under Edit which allows you to paste text explicitly as plain text (or as code or a block quote for that matter).
