Copy something and it’s placed on the Mac’s clipboard. Copy something else, and the last copied object is deleted. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to save and re-use all those items you copied? That’s what a clipboard manager does. Here’s one that’s been around a few years.
1999, Meet 2014
Savvy Clipboard works well enough as Mac clipboard managers go, though it’s somewhat stuck back in 1999 with a look and feel not far removed from Mac OS 9.
The app works much the same way as other clipboard managers and is priced in the middle. Whatever you copy gets saved so it can be pasted later. Think about how handy that is.
Instead of backing up to copy again something you copied just minutes earlier, Savvy Clipboard keeps it saved in a library, ready to be pasted with a click.
Even better, you can view all the objects you’ve saved in Savvy Clipboard with a click, and some of them can be edited.
What can you copy and save? Pretty much everything. Text, graphics, website URLs, photos, links to files, formatted text.
Click to view the list of copied items stored in the clipboard item library.
A clipboard manager is a good way to save, store, and retrieve snippets of text, photos, boilermaker phrases, even passwords and login IDs. Select what you want from the list and it gets pasted back into a document.
Think of Savvy Clipboard as a library of everything you’ve copied on your Mac. As noted, it’s in the mid-range of clipboard managers, and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of CopyPaste Pro or PTHPasteboard, but it’s a good way to get started using a clipboard manager. If you don’t mind the look of 1999.
