How often do you use copy and paste on your Mac each day? Wouldn’t it be nice if you Mac could remember everything you copied so it could be pasted again without copying it again?
There are a number of great Mac apps that do just that. A newcomer does something different. It copies. It pastes. It remembers. But it’s also drop dead easy to use. A true one-trick copy paste pony.
Copy Paste Memory Without Features
Here’s the problem we have with many Mac apps. The features get piled on so thick and heavy that the app becomes cumbersome to use. Feature laden. Bloated.
A few of the copy paste library apps are like that.
They copy. They remember what they copy. They’ll paste what they remember.
But there’s also twenty-eleven other features that clutter up your mind that you need to remember. The little app called CopySwap goes against the grain of features and bloat.
Copy And Swap Are The Only Tricks
Here’s how it works. You select some text. You copy the text using CopySwap. Then you select some text where you want the copied text to go. CopySwap pastes the text but at the same time it copies the text it replaced.
That makes CopySwap a great clipboard tool for rearranging text, moving it all around in a document, because what you copy gets swapped with what was selected.
Here’s how it works. I want to copy the second line of text and swap it with the third line of text. How do you accomplish that using plain old copy and paste. Copy, paste somewhere else. Copy, paste and move.
Or, copy, paste, paste.
The first step would be to copy what you want to move first. Then select the text to replace.
In fewer copy and paste selections you get text moved around from here to there a few steps faster.
CopySwap is truly a one trick pony. An app that doesn’t do much more than copy and swap. That’s refreshing.
Compare CopySwap with other Mac clipboard manager apps.
One of my favorites is PTH Pasteboard. I love the pop out shelf of copied items.
CopySwap does just the basics. It copies. It swaps. It pastes. It’s also free.
