Remove Paste from SharePoint Ribbon

To remove the paste menu from the SharePoint ribbon, you just need to have the following code in a user control, which is added into the master page.


SPRibbon myRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page);

if (myRibbon != null)
{
myRibbon.TrimById(“Ribbon.EditingTools.CPEditTab.Clipboard.Paste”);
}

But what if you need to remove the Paste popout from the Paste link in the ribbon. Normally, you have Paste as plain text and Paste inside the parent “Paste” option. I am going to tell you how to just display “Paste as plain text” in the menu.


SPRibbon myRibbon = SPRibbon.GetCurrent(this.Page);

if (myRibbon != null)
{
myRibbon.TrimById(“Ribbon.EditingTools.CPEditTab.Clipboard.Paste.Menu.Paste.Paste”);
}

This will simply give you “Paste as Plaintext” in the ribbon. But this does not eliminate the whole purpose of pasting with formatting from Word or with other formatting styles. Because these can still be done using the left click of the mouse or “Ctrl-C”, “Ctrl-V” combination. I have mentioned another post on how this can be removed too. Read the same here.
