Since some recent update, when copying stuff from Terminal into Gmail compose window, it's pasted as formatted text, retaining all my terminal colors and fonts.

How to stop them (Chrome, Gmail, Terminal or whoever is to blame) doing that? This is really annoying.

    Thanks, the trick was to disable that in Terminal prefs. – georg Apr 4 '18 at 16:59
