If you had the non-cloud version there is the Confluence Source Editor. But for the cloud version there is no source editor. The best you can do is make use of the clear formatting button in the toolbar. Also, make sure that you NEVER copy and paste from Word into Confluece. ALWAYS copy into notepad (or some other text editor) first to clear the formatting and then copy and paste from notepad into Confluence.

Just to add to Davin's responseon copy/pasting from Word...if you use Windows then the little application - Pure Text (http://stevemiller.net/puretext/) - that runs in your tray and can be activated by hotkey assignment, might be considered to save time. I find I use it often for this and many other use cases (even pasting text from elsewhere into emails).

I like the puretext idea. I might check into that myself.

We've developed a plugin, Source Editor for Confluence that allows you to edit the source in Confluence cloud and server. You can check it out here. The cloud version was developed by us in-house, and our server version took the open source code for Confluence Source Editor and fixed a lot of outstanding bugs and added a few features like beautification.
