Spartan Portable Lite Multi Clipboard review

Spartan Portable Lite Multi Clipboard can store anything you want to copy, including images, text, and links, and let you access them anytime. Just copy to the clipboard as usual, and everything you select will be accessible when you need it from this app's intuitive interface.

Pros

Two categories: When you copy items to Spartan Portable, they'll appear in a list on the left-hand side of the interface. This list is temporary, and eventually older clips will drop off the bottom as new clips are added. If there are items you don't want to lose, however, you … Read more

Alpha Clipboard review

Alpha Clipboard acts as an extension of your regular clipboard to allow you to store multiple text and image clips, and paste them into documents later. Just select and copy items as you normally do, and this app will store them in a list for you, so that you can paste items whenever you want and in whichever order you want, all at once.

The intuitive interface of this app makes it even more convenient, with a notepad-like appearance containing two columns. The left-hand column is yellow, and it holds the most recent 25 clips you've copied to your … Read more

Review: A to Z Clipboard keeps all of your important text and image clips together

A to Z Clipboard is a handy tool that allows you to copy multiple images and pieces of text at once on the same clipboard.

Review: Clipboard History keeps up to 20 clips at a time for easy copying and pasting

Clipboard History stores up to 20 text clips at a time to make copying and pasting a much quicker and more efficient process. For items that you copy and paste frequently, you can create "stickies," permanent entries that don't cycle off of your clipboard as you add new items. You can also customize shortcut keys for accessing your clipboard and pasting items.

The interface of Clipboard History is pretty minimalist, so it can be a bit confusing to use at first. But since there aren't many features, you'll get the hang of it quickly. Just … Read more

Review: Clipboard Pimper for Mac offers many features but a lousy interface

Clipboard Pimper offers a number of features for managing and utilizing the clipboard on your Mac, but it suffers substantially because of a lack of clear direction, labeling, and an interface that frustrates more than it helps. The result is a very uneven app that can be useful if you know exactly what you are trying to do, but more often than not will get in its own way.

After installation, you can open Clipboard Pimper quickly. The result is a small, single pane window with a number of buttons on it and a blank box in the middle. You … Read more

Make use of the clipboard for OS X commands

When running commands in the OS X Terminal, you might find the need to save or redirect the output for use elsewhere. Common methods for doing this are to save the output in a text file, or to pipe it directly to another command. This way you can parse and manipulate the data output to get the results you want, using a number of approaches to do so.

If you decide to redirect output to files in order to save them, you will have to perform some cleanup routines at a later point to remove the files. While the use … Read more

Mac tip: Copy and paste plain text with Get Plain Text

Rich text formatting, be gone!

Two questions: Do you use a Mac? Do you find yourself copying and pasting text throughout the workday? If you answered "yes" to both questions, I would recommend spending $2.99 in the Mac App Store on Get Plain Text.

Once installed and running, Get Plain Text places an icon in your Mac's menu bar. Click on it and from the drop-down menu, choose "Automatically clear formatting." Now when you copy and paste text, you'll grab only the text and none of its formatting. You can easily turn this … Read more
