Paste Text Without Formatting
The ability to paste text from the clipboard without formatting (size, colour, font). Would help speed up workflow when copying titles etc from other text editors/word processors.
In an effort to improve communications between you and the After Effects team, we are moving this feedback forum to the After Effects page on the Adobe Support Community. As requested, bugs and feature requests will be able to live separately in that forum. If you have an item here that did not make the migration, please bring it over to our new home.
See you soon on the Adobe Support Forum!

Here's a workaround I found. Make a new solid layer. Copy your text, hit enter on the solid layer name and paste your text so it becomes the solid layer name and hit enter. Hit enter again to select the solid layer name and copy the text. Now paste this text into your text layer and the formatting of your text layer should be applied to the pasted text.

CTRL/CMD - SHIFT - V
Like in every other editor.
Please also do this in Premiere!!!

What the heck is wrong with you people that this still isn't a thing? Get it done. Yet another straw that makes me want to quit the Adobe environment.

2020, still wishing this was as feature.

Could be done like this:
Ctrl+v to paste with formatting (the standard)
Ctrl+Shift+v to paste without formatting
