Copy copies background also

Answered

This drives me crazy.  Is there a way to get webstorm to copy readable code from the editor?  I'm using a dark theme so I end up with lousy colors after I paste into OneNote or other editors

WebStorm uses rich text format on copying by default. You can use Edit/Copy as Plain Text to copy text without colors, etc.

That seems to contradict the documentation, unless the documentation is only talking about pasting text into PyChamr: https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/help/cutting-copying-and-pasting.html

In any case, I think that the default behavior isn't useful.

Not sure about PyCharm (although it should be the same for all IDEs) but in PhpStorm you can disable such feature at

"Settings/Preferences | Editor | General --> Copy as rich text by default".

I'd looked for something along those lines, but missed it. Thanks!
