Copy, cut, paste much? Of course you do. Everyone does. Copy, cut, paste is built in to our Mac user DNA. We just do it. We don’t think about it. Except when we copy or cut something #1, then it gets deleted from the Mac’s clipboard by copying or cutting something #2. The Mac’s clipboard isn’t very deep. One item at a time is all you get. Try using a multi-item clipboard manager and your Mac life will improve in ways you’ll be amazed.
Save The Copy And Cut Items
That’s what a clipboard manager does. Whatever you copy or cut gets saved. Text, images, formatted text, audio or video, even files.
iClip is one of a half dozen or so inexpensive Mac clipboard managers.
This one is unique because the interface goes all 21st century on your eyes, but the functionality is Mac life worthy.
What iClip does is help you by saving whatever you copy so you can paste it again whenever you want. Paste one thing, copy something else, and iClip stores and still remembers what you copied a bunch of pastes ago.
All the copying and saving is done automatically. Move your mouse pointer to a hot spot, and the shelf of clipboard copied items pops out (or, up or down). Select the item you want to paste again from the bin and click. Done.
That’s it. Whatever you’ve copied in the past is still available, ready for pasting into your document with a click.
Preferences give you control over the hotspot location, transparency, the hot keys to invoke the shelf of copied items, and the bin style.
If you’re a point and click Mac user, all is well, easy, and fun. It’s very satisfying to be able to save something you copied or cut an hour ago or yesterday.
What about Mac power users whose fingers are cosmically welded to the keyboard? iClip has keyboard shortcuts to open the clipboard shelf and select whatever you’ve copied.
No mouse, no mas.
What sets iClip apart from some clipboard managers is the unlimited storage of copied items, and the ability to store sets of clips.
This is good for filling in web forms, pasting in frequently used text or logos or other snippets.
Almost anything that can be copied can be stored and retrieved (text, images, photos, snippets, music, video clips, etc.). Have no fear. What you copy will still be available to paste later today or next month.
The power of a good clipboard manager cannot be overstated. iClip just sits there and copies stores what you copy and totally worth the money.
