It’s true confession time. I’m a Mac geek. That means I populate the Mincey Macs with a few more utilities than the average Mac user. It also means that I’m big on productivity and efficiency and that means some of my laundry list of Mac apps will do you well.
Want to be a Mac power user? Get a Mac clipboard manager app. They’re easy to use and can save many thousands of clicks and copying each month. Your Mac’s clipboard is time honored but hasn’t changed much since the original Macs.
Copy and item or cut an item and then paste it. The original disappears as soon as you copy or cut something else. A clipboard manager simple remembers everything you copied or cut and makes them available for pasting whenever you want so you won’t have to find it and copy it again.
If you’ve never used a clipboard manager before try PasteBox. It’s not heavily burdened with confusing features. It’s free and works well.
Cut and copy just as you always have, but when you run into a need to paste something you’ve already copied, don’t go looking for it– you’ll find it in PasteBox.
Almost everything you’ve recently cut or copied remains stored in PasteBox. Text, images, URLs, photos. Use the built-in keyboard shortcut to popup PastBox’s window of captured items, then click to paste.
Settings and configurations are nominal. Select specific types of text; plain, RTF, RTFD, TIFF, URL’s, Hex colors, HTML, and more. You determine how many items PasteBox can store, how they’re displayed, and even set the maximum file size of a stored item.
PasteBox does not have all the features you’ll find in CopyPaste Pro or PTHPasteboard, but it’s free and a perfect way for you to get started using a multiple clipboard manager.
