Is there a keyboard shortcut to paste as quoted text?

Now the quoting button is hidden in the "Formatting" bar so figured a keyboard shortcut would be handy.

Wow, after posting the bounty I found it: Ctrl+Shift+9.

  • Tool tip of the quoting button. Wasn't there before but seems like they have since added it. Commented Mar 22, 2013 at 0:19

  • Not that it changes much, but it is also possible to do ctrl+shift+v+9 (edit: seems to actually work for single line quotes.. other wise it quotes "twice")
