I frequently cut and paste text from a browser into Scrivener. The style from the browser is retained. This may be useful for some but for me, I just want the text to adopt the Default within Scrivener. Is there a way to set this?

Have you tried this—long-press at the insertion point till the inline menu appears, then tap Unstyled Paste.

That works. Thanks!

Works when long press on the screen. Long-press on the iPad keyboard’s trackpad does nothing. I hope Apple rectifies this soon.

You’re welcome.

When using an external keyboard, there’s a Paste and Match Style* action using a keyboard shortcut. Press and hold the cmd key to show options:
