Copying cells in Google Spreadsheets and pasting into text file (tried with XCode, Notes, Text Edit - the below applies to all) adds quotes around each cell. How can I avoid those extra quotes? Also, each quote within the text itself has another quote added to it. I just want to copy the contents as are. Is there a hidden "copy plain" feature?
i notice that it only happens when cells contain newlines and possibly other special characters. adding the quotes might be done by the program you paste into -- each program may have the ability to convert tabular data into non tabular data as it wishes. if i paste into Google Keep, i see no quotes, but if i paste into my text editor, i get quotes. perhaps you can try first pasting into Google Keep, then copy again, and paste into destination program.
