IN the docs - it states: 


Styles affect the appearance of a portion of text, from a single character upwards. They are based on CSS classes (already existing in your CSS stylesheet); as they enclose a portion of text within span tags using the class attribute to reference the CSS class. For example:

    <span class=monospaced>Monospaced Text Here</span>

To enable styles for selection in the dialog you:

  • enable the Style drop-down selector by enabling the plugin
  • specify the location(s) of the stylesheet(s) you want to reference
  • specify the individual styles that can be selected from the Style drop down list

So using Styles plug-in you can reference a CSS that specifies the font type you want to use.

I dont want to add any style attribute. Just wanted to avoid the style tag which is added by default when content is copied from notepad ++. 

How can i avoid OOTB style addition?

Is it adding the style even if you copy from the notepad ?? 

Most of the times, copying from textpad, notepad or word would come along with these styles with it. I would say, you can write a quick listener before saving to remove/clean these styles

Yes. style attribute added to p tag as below

<p style="font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;">

Try Applying the Following Listener under "Dialog" of that component and use the property "beforesubmit" it will surely Work 100% 




var i;

for (i = 0; dialog.findByType("richtext", true)[i]="undefined"; i++) { 

var rte = dialog.findByType("richtext", true)[i];

var para=rte.getName();

var text=dialog.getField(para).getValue();

var final=text.split("font-family: tahoma, arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px;").join("");
