Implement "Insert as text" for email edit

One of the problems doing cut & paste in an email is sometimes the formatting you don’t want to insert. So a right click function “Insert as text” would put the bypass via notepad (to get rid of the formatting) out of business.

You should be able to do this via the message menu Edit | Paste Special and choose Plain text.

Thanks, I know but a Hotkey and/or a right mouse action would be much more convenient

It should not display the 'Paste Special' dialogue, but just paste the plain text.

On Windows/LibreOffice 5, Ctrl+Shift+V brings up the Paste Special dialog and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V pastes it without formatting. MS Office should be similar, GW should keep up with this de-facto standard.
