Ok, so I just realized that you can’t save files from Safari into plain text format. So, I fired up script editor and this is what I came up with. Just copy the text you want to the clipboard and then run this. It will launch textedit, paste in the text, convert it to plain text, and give you a save dialog. This is my first script so let me know what you think and maybe how I could have made it more efficient. Thanks and enjoy!
