The clipboard in OS X is limited to whatever you last copied or cut which forces you to back track to re-copy and paste items even from a few minutes ago. A clipboard manager copies and saves what you copy and cut so you can use them again. Here’s a new one that’s good and affordable.
Multiple Clipboard Center
Professional caliber multiple clipboard managers can cost $25 to $30, but also come with a list of features not every Mac user will need.
Clipboard Center is an inexpensive clipboard manager that still handles the basics with ease. Whatever you capture on the Mac’s clipboard is saved in Clipboard Center.
There’s not much effort required to use a clipboard manager app, and even less with Clipboard Center.
Copy or cut text, URLs, images, photos, or files and they’re added to the Clipboard Center history for quick retrieval.
Click the icon in the Mac’s Menubar and the pop down window displays recent clipboard items. Then, find the item you want to paste again, drag and drop and you’re done.
Basic usage is simple enough, but configuration options are extensive. You can limit the history of items captured, group items by app or type, maintain the history of items, setup a blacklist of apps that cannot use Clipboard Center, and even customize keyboard shortcuts to invoke the app.
The Clipboard Center pop up window displays each clipboard copied, including text, photos, images, and more. This app is far less expensive than some, but doesn’t have all the features and functions of Copy Paste Pro or PTHPasteboard.
