nice easy hack!
so corrected the summary. It was highly inaccurate .. ;)
Would suggest it also have a menu bar entry and it be able to reset all paragraph, character and direct formatting options.
Tagging this for the creation of the necessary uno command, so that i can be included in the menu bar and suggest using Ctrl + Alt + M as the shortcut, as its not used anywhere in LO.

@Cor: Is this for applying default paragraph style as there is already a shortcut for that (Ctrl+Shift+0) and its listed in the styles menu. Maybe we can add a shortcut to set default character style as well, maybe ctrl+shift+alt+0.
Please keep in mind that average users struggle to understand styles and have even more problems to follow the difference between paragraph and character styles plus direct formatting. If there are different ways to get rid of a styling it adds confusion.
Also I'm against complex shortcuts with three modifiers keys. If the user wants to configure this cumbersome finger posture, I'm sorry for her. But when we deliver software with this complexity there is something wrong with our usability (26 letters by 6 variants makes it 156 different shortcuts to remember, at worst).
Sounds like a WONTFIX to me.
In theory the user has to do several steps to have a document without any formatting: Ctrl+m for direct formatting, Ctrl+0 for default paragraph style, go to the styles sidebar and assign default character style, go through other styles like lists and tables.
These are many steps. But how often an average user has to do this? I doubt a own shortcut is justifiable for this.
If a new command will be introduced, then I want a super reset command that also set all other styles back to a default/unstyled state. Not only paragraph and character styles.

You mean 'default/unmodified' I guess.

Fine for me. I'm not hindered by short cuts I do not use.
The behavior of Ctrl+M is fine and has been discussed before the latest change (few years back). But now leaves the gap for the behavior that this issue is about.
There seems to be some agreement on this request and the shortcut also sounds like a good idea (if we need a shortcut). So removing UX.

Yes. Would follow the clear formatting command and copycat this plus the character style cleaning function. Though have no code pointers out of the box.
