I am using LibreOffice 4.0.2 and have a need to copy a text selection (recipient address) from 
one document to another, to a label template for a continuous label printer. The text selection 
resides in a table and I'd like to /not/ copy any of the formatting to the label template where 
a different formatting needs to be applied.

Currently, I copy the text selection which automatically includes the table cell formatting, 
paste it into the second document, remove the extra space above and below the table cells, 
select only the table cells, convert them into text and finally apply the desired formatting 

As i am sure everyone understands, this gets old really fast and surely there must be a faster 

Suggestions appreciated!

Have you tried Edit > Paste Special > Unformatted text?
You can bind this to a key. As I use this quite often I have it on Alt-Command-V (on a Mac).
