CopyPaste Pro for Mac - Multiple Clipboard Utility

CopyPaste Pro for Mac - Multiple Clipboard Utility

The first (released in 1997) and most popular multiple clipboard utility to display, archive and edit clipboards. 

Time machine for the clipboard. 

See and edit any clip in your history of copies or store copies in the more permanent clip archives. Save multiple clipboards through restarts. Increibly useful, time saver, life saver for all Mac users. The best clipboard app.

CopyPaste is the original, one and only award winning multiple clipboard editor and archival utility. 

CopyPaste is essential for beginners, writers, editors, graphic designers, lawyers, students, home businesses, digital photographers, anyone who uses the clipboard.

CopyPaste is a digital hub for clipboard material and many other kinds of data. It is easy to use, saves time and allows you to do less and accomplish more. Try it free and see how essential a clipboard manager is.

Once upon a time operating systems had no interapplication communication. Then along came the Mac and one of its incredible features was the clipboard which allowed you to copy an item from one application then open another and paste. That was revolutionary in 1985 but now it is the next century and copying and pasting in the Mac OS has not evolved any further – even in the modern OS X. How many times have you found yourself switching back and forth between applications copying one item at a time, wishing that you could copy not just one but two or more items at a time?

CopyPaste: A Scoffer No More

The spirit of CopyPaste is commendable, and – once you’ve experienced its utility – you can’t fathom why it hasn’t been built into the Mac OS System for years.

    1. You can repeatedly paste the main clip again and again without releasing the command key
    2. A simple command-v pastes the first clip in the history while a command-v-v pastes the laste used clip. (Try it, paste command-v-2 and then command-v-v which will paste the clip #2 from the Archive again. Just command-v and release pastes the first clip in the history.)

    [New] The clip history has a new contextual menu command to revert the order of the clips in the History
    [New] The CopyPaste menu has a new command in the Clip History menu to revert the order of the clips in the History
    [New] The Clips in the Clip Archive (not in History!) provide a "lock clip" command to prevent a clip from being deleted or replaced. A locked clip provides an "unlock clip" command.
    [New] The preferences has a new option to set the key command to show the Clip Browser on doube V. If this is checked you can hit command double-V to locate the Clip Browser with the first Clip selected (without delay). If not checked a simple command v shows the browser (after delay), and the second V selects the second clip.
    [New] The selection of the next clip with the repeated v now works even if the Browser still "hangs" in the fade-in delay. Prior to this version the second v was only evaluated when the Browser was already visible.

    [Fix] KeyCue compatibility, the KeyCue HUD window did not show up when CopyPaste displayed the Clip Browser. Fixed but requires a update to.

    [Mod] You can escape from the Browser called by keyboard without pasting if you type the c key. This also starts turning the browser, but if you release all keys the turning is interrupted and the pasting as well. we cannot use esc key for this, because it calls Front Row. All other keys are either used as hotkeys for the Archive or not practical. So try the c key to abort pasting.

  • First public 1.0 version released. if you have never used copypaste pro then it is essential to look at the manual which is here:
    http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dxt3z6v_1c5kc82
    [Add] a new preference item to disable flip and genie animation in the animation tab. a good idea on slower macs.
    [Add] a new preference item that when on stores every drag and drop with other copies in the history. this is a unique feature to copypaste. click and drag any picture out of safari then check the clip history to see it in action.
    [Add] for first time users there are now dummy clips in the history and the archive. these are used as examples for when a user first uses copypaste pro.
    [Mod] changed the quick-preferences menu which drops down from the floating icon on a contextual menu click or when you keep the mouse pressed on it (do not drag, this stops the menu!)
    [Mod] there is a delay of 1/3 second introduced in the browser behavior when opened from the icon which allows to quickly pass through the window without closing it. and which allows to drag it around without closing it when you move the mouse outside the browser window within the 1/3 sec.
    [Bug] saving the clips which caused unpredictable results when single clips were deleted.
    [Bug] a drag to the browser bug is fixed.
1.0 b162008-04-25
  • - a new contextual menu plugin which lets the mouse go on the "Copy to Archive..." menu command to copy to the next free slot in the current Archive.
    - new key command, i.e. command + double c (c and then c again) which allows copying directly to the next free slot in the current Archive
    - the menu which drops down from the floating icon shows some of the preferences which you can be set faster here than from the preferences window.
1.0 b152008-04-18
  • - the latest Bean sources are adapted to the CopyPaste requirements and the new Bean is in the bundle. It is as usual necessary to delete all other versions of Bean, including those in older CopyPaste versions (don't keep old versions of copypaste around), which the Finder will not show in search results. also to work perfectly CopyPaste should be installed into the applications folder.
    - this one implements a new "lost password" button in the preferences,
    - the CopyPaste menu from the floating icon now works correctly
    - the Make Sticky command from the contextual menu on the background of the browser works
    - the delay for Quick Copy is adjustable (pieter's not peter's idea)
    - bug fixes
1.0 b142008-04-15
  • - can now open the browser using the small clipboard icon.
    - a click on the small clipboard icon now turns the browser.
    - click and hold (or ctrl-click) on the small clipboard icon shows the copypaste menu
    these three all work if the small clipboard icon is showing and that is controlled in the preferences.
    - quick copy function (from the old copypaste) can now be enabled in the preferences. select something and hold the mouse button for one second and it copies. click somewhere and hold the button for one second and it pastes.
1.0 b132008-04-03
  • - a new button in the preferences allows to import clipsets from copypaste-x (note that if you have existing copypaste-pro archives with the same name, this command will effectively replace clips in these archives.) make sure to back up any old copypaste archives before using this.
    - the floating clipboard icon (if on in the preferences) smartly hides itself if dvd player, vlc, eyetv is in front.
    - the preferences now stores the users e-mail and password and compares them at launch time. this makes it necessary to enter the registration information again. exterminator@work still works but will expire soon.
    - a new contextual menu which avoids crashes when copypaste is not running. this installs itself automatically, but you should quit mail and safari and start them again. the reason is that the system always makes a copy of all contextual menu plugins in memory for each running program. therefore even if you install a new contextual menu plugin, the old one is used as long as you do not restart every program. thats the reason why you sometimes have to restart the whole computer.
    - other bug fixes.
1.0 b92008-02-20
  • - You can copy directly to the archive from the menubar-menu. Highlight some text then you select an existing slot, the clip goes there. If you let go on the "Copy to Archive:.." parent menu item, you add the clip with the next free hotkey to the Archive. To set a different hotkey for that archive you have to either use the keyboard command-c-# or you can later changed any assigned hotkey from the Clip Browser.

    - If you activate the "show browser on command mouse at screen edge" you get the browser with archive view from the RIGHT side and from the LEFT side you get the browser in history view. its a fast way to view the clips. The command-c to return from archive to history and vice versa is still working

    - The e-mail comment now breaks the line after 80 characters ( less if the word boundary is later)

    - You can edit each clip by holding the command key and going to the menu of history items and selecting it. Doing that will open the clip in Bean This also works in the contextual menu.

    - You can reverse the preferences setting to paste without styles on the fly by pressing the option key and choosing the paste from the menu. That means if you normally paste text with styles and you press the option key, it pastes plain text without styles.
    This works in the contextual menu as well.

    - One remark indicated the little triangle is hard to hit in the browser. It is not necessary to hit the triangle if you use the right mouse button, (or two-finger-on-trackpad click). The triangle is there for those who do not know how to locate the menu with right mouse click.

    - One new tool is "Open selection in Editor"
    - One new tool is "Send selection in Mail"
    - One new tool is "Open selection as URL"

    - The installer for the contextual menu now removes the old CopyPaste-X plugin along with the previous pro plugin.

    - Make sure to install the new contextual menu plugin. The contextual menu plugin is updated as well and has to be replaced to be compatible with the changes above.
1.0 b82008-02-14
  • - bean (the clip editor) is built in. open via the clip browser.
    IMPORTANT

    1. older versions of Bean and CopyPastePro have to be removed from the Applications folder
    2. CopyPaste has to be copied into the Applications folder
    3. You have to restart the system (or log out&in) to notify the system of Bean inside CopyPaste.
    - the clip browser is off by default and can be turned on in the prefs.
    - speedup in all functions.

    m a n u a l
    it has not been updated yet for this new version. it will be as soon this week after we get this beta out. anyone (any beta tester) who enjoys working on manuals is welcome to join me in updating and improving it.

    b u g s
    in the last version there was a certain delay when using the clip archives with command-# key-combo which caused pasting wrong clips. this should be fixed. the clip archives did not work at all on overwriting existing slots. this is fixed

    b e a n (the word processor)
    bean now is integrated into copypaste (the application bundle), which is a good thing, but (important) you have to take care of three things:
    1. older versions of bean and copypastepro have to be removed from the applications folder
    2. copypaste has to be copied into the applications folder
    3. you have to restart the system (or log out&in) to notify the system of bean inside copypaste.
    until you do these three things, you have no clipboard editing feature using the built in bean.

    p r e f e r e n c e s
    the preferences have been cleaned up quite a bit and the defaults set to be least confusing.
    the "launch at login" now is a checkbox and it simply reflects the system setting and acts on it, which means you see whether *any* copypaste version is registered for start at login. if you disable and then enable the checkbox, you can make sure that the current version of copypastepro is registered to start at login. if you later use the system preferences to unregister copypastepro, the checkbox will reflect that correctly and will not try to re-register copypastepro. that was one misbehavior in copypaste-x.
    also there is a new setting for opening the browser on command-mouse-move-to-screen-edge. this is off by default. the behavior has changed a little, so that you first have to hold down the command-key and then move the mouse. it was quite disturbing to have the mouse at the screen edge and get the browser when you wanted to use the command key for other functions. the behavior now should be satisfying.

    a u t o m a t i c u p d a t e s
    the update mechanism has changed before it worked but put up a status window that sometimes would be behind other windows and need to be dismissed unfortunately leaving copypaste menus all grayed out and people wondering how to quit copypaste.
1.0 b72007-12-12
  • - new technique to access the horizontal browser. hold the command key and move the cursor all the way to the right or left of the window.
    - new tool in the clip browser contextual menu to send a clip via mail.
    - many fixes.
    - removed the vertical clip browser (it will return in a different form).
    - check updates menu and code added (is not setup to work yet).
    - bean editor added for editing and saving back clips (history or archives)
    - display clips in the browser as RTF which means styles and colors are included.
    - horizontal browser now works better and faster with even 50 or more clips in the history.
    - registration added.
    - many other things....

CopyPaste Winner of Award from MacUser

This (CopyPaste) app is 100% AMAZING and I use its numerous features thousands of times daily – literally. It has been a time-saver, increased work-flow efficiency, and so much more. 
Kevin Bardon

 I just want to express my appreciation for CopyPaste Pro which I have been using since the year I got my first Mac in 1988. Some things I loved have gone away, like PageMaker, but others like CopyPaste Pro, and PopChar, have been on every mac I’ve had. When I get a new mac I put both of them on right away. I don’t know how people manage without a clipboard with a memory. So just thanks!
Cynthia 9/28/19

“Can’t Survive Without It. As the Help Desk Director for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP), I answer up to 100 e-mail questions each day. As you can imagine, many members of NAPP run into the same problems and questions regularly. CopyPaste saves me thousands of words of typing every day, letting me supply answers with a series of simple keyboard shortcuts. Without CopyPaste, my response time would be slower and there would be a much greater chance of inaccuracies creeping into the responses.”
Pete Bauer Director NAPP Help Desk

“Excellent! I’ve been using CopyPaste since mid 1990’s. It is indispensable. Apple should have incorporated CP into the Mac OS. Thank you for making life that little bit easier.”
Dean Perkins

“excellent! the memory footprint is now small and constant. i find that this application does its basic job of copying and pasting more efficiently (short simple keystrokes) than other competing application. highly recommended.
fxt (on versiontracker.com)

“I always pay the fee on starting a new Mac because I love this product so much.It is the biggest time-saver imaginable when you need to use standard answers on any e-mailing. Best of all it’s as easy as counting.”
Montmartre

“CopyPaste-X just as its predecessor for MacOS is a masterpiece. You won’t be able to imagine how you did without it. And the new editing function with .pdf-support and a fuzzy-search (even goes for similar sounds) is GREAT!”
Emanuel (on versiontracker.com)

“Still the best. Its used at least 20 times a day. Had the old one on Mac 9.2, this new one has a lot more features that are very nice for someone who writes or edits a lot. Its a superlative product and a pleasure to have.”
Ronald Norman

“Superb program. This is the one software I will never be without. I have used it for years and cannot imagine working without it. The few times I had a question Julian was prompt in responding. He doesn’t know me, but treated me like family if not better. Thank you for a superb program.”
slb4010_dotmac on versiontracker.com

“I curse Apple for not enabling me to copy more than one item at a time.” But praise be to generous programmers. On Shareware.com, I discovered an application that expands my copying capabilities tenfold. CopyPaste’s nifty text-processing tools let you shift case, tab, or insert text files, pictures, and sounds into a clipboard – the floating palette keeps track of what’s where. Even neater is the clip archive, which drops copied items into a folder on your desktop – fabulously convenient for online researchers.”   —   more…
Debbie Elkind, Wired Magazine

“You’ll find that CopyPaste is wonderfully tiny and, like most of my favorite shareware utilities, it has a shy personality — you can send it away and it will discreetly return at your beck and call.” —   more…

“For those who do any kind of writing, CopyPaste-X is an invaluable tool that is easy to learn, and once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. 4.5 out of 5 mice” —   more…

“The only utility to which I’ve remained true is the ever-lovely CopyPaste from the wonderful folks at Script Software. CopyPaste when fired up, offers you 100 clipboards to which you can paste essential bits and pieces of documents, URLs you need and just about anything you want to store and then use again.”

“Si vous voulez gérer totalement vos presse-papiers (les sauvegarder, les éditer, les organiser par thème), CopyPaste est fait pour vous. De même, si vous voulez être aidé à la saisie, sa fonctionnalité yType peut vous aider. Et vu la densité de possibilités, les 30$ demandés ne semblent pas exagérés.” —   more…

“I use CopyPaste Pro 2.0 (by Peter Hoerster & Julian Miller) all the time! It’s the single most-important add-on software on my Mac!
Alán Apurim

Just a word of gratitude for the latest upgrade to CopyPaste: it’s a terrific improvement on the previous incarnation. It really is one of the best pieces of add-on software available. I’ve been using it for years and would find it difficult to live without it. Now it’s even better! Best wishes.
Tim Clarke

Ain’t a Mac without it!
Michael Jay Warren

Thanks for bringing this new version of CopyPaste to market. I have been using CopyPaste since 2002 (OS9), and still rely on it every day! I have demo’d other clipboard apps, but CopyPaste is THE BEST! Dave Wheelock

I can’t imagine using a Macintosh without this — it seems to me to be the fuel injector in a fine engine.
Leslie Benscoter, Deadwood, Oregon

Absolutely essential. I can’t count the number of times a day I use Copypaste. You all do know that Microsoft and probably Apple will now copy and paste this idea into their OS’s and not pay you, right? Hasn’t this happened to you all a couple times before?
James Fitz
[The simple answer to that is yes.]

Thanks again for a great and indispensable piece of software! I think it is FANTASTIC!
Dan Sanfilippo

Can’t live without it!!! Great product! It’s indespensible and thank you for developing it!
Roger Euchler

I finally convinced your server to let me pay you. I am grateful. Copypaste had been sorely missed ever since I got an Intel Mac running Leopard. It is indispensable!
David Rosenblum

You sure know how to show a girl a good time! [we believe she was referring to CopyPaste]
Betsy Milligan

I loved the old version of CP, but I have to admit, the new version is far better. Never thought I’d say that! Thanks for all your hard work. At first, I was worried about having any changes made to CopyPaste. Now I’m happy with what you’ve done and I wouldn’t want to go back!
Joe Olivas

Your CopyPaste and TypeIt4Me are the two most used applications on my computer and have worked together happily for years. Please make this happen again, soon. If you do, I will name my next child after you. Of course it may take a while, since I’m going to be seventy on my upcoming birthday in October. :^D
Gene Leff

CopyPaste is TERRIFIC. It is a delightful addition to my Mac system. All features are welcome and have simplified my work tremendously. Keep up the good work. I’ll watch for new innovations. WS

Thanks for the upgrade info. CopyPaste is indispensable! JF in Maine

Thank you for sending the CopyPaste confirmation. It is the coolest shareware program since Maelstrom and EasyEnvelopes and well worth the fee. I am on the faculty at Oklahoma State University and use CopyPaste primarily when connected to the OSU mainframe from home. It is extremely helpful and time saving to be able to copy the enrollment of an entire class at once rather than switching back and forth one screen at a time; the fact that I can also eliminate the all-caps which computer people seem to prefer is icing on the cake.

Gentlemen: My hats off to you. A great utility got absolutely better, no doubt about it. I have just downloaded it and spent the last thirty minutes checking its features. I particularly like the new floating windoid. Again, many thanks for a great utility. I wish you all great success, and with utilities like this, you will have great luck. JS

I just want to let you know CopyPaste is the best thing that has happened since System 7.5. I think you should solicit Apple to incorporate it in the next system upgrade. Again, thanks for the great enhancement. Don

THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE UPDATE! This is by far the best shareware I have ever used! Keep up the good work. Jamie

I had the good luck to download your CopyPaste extension V 2.5.4 today from CompuServe and I think it’s about the best implementation of the multiple Clipboard feature I have seen so far and you’re quite right that Apple should include it as part of the system software. JL

I really find it useful. EL

Last Friday I sent my shareware fee to you by Special Delivery snailmail for the above fantastic program. What an incredible time-saver! I’m so very pleased I found it and gave it a whirl. It’s worth every penny and more. RT

I’ve found that CopyPaste provides the most usefulness of any of the multi-clipboards. JW

I wanted to let you know that I have been playing with a variety of programs similar to yours and decided yours was the best in terms of ease of use and, in particular, its ability to co-exist with other programs. RL

I just sent off the $20.00 shareware fee (cash) for “CopyPaste 2.5.4 (US).” CopyPaste is a great program! DS Arizona, USA

This is an absolutely incredible piece of software and I am delighted to submit my fees for it! Over the past couple of years I have tried numerous ‘multi-clipboard’ programs, but until now I had never been able to find one stable enough to work properly on my Mac. (This includes, I believe, earlier versions of CopyPaste, as well!) I am using a Macintosh LCII that has been accelerated to a 33MHz 040 with a Daystar accelerator. I have 8MB of internal ram, which is bumped up to 32MB using RAMDoubler plus the freeware RAMDoubler PUMP. I presently have 61 icons that parade across my screen on startup, and so you can imagine how important it was to me to find a stable program like CopyPaste 2.5.4 that would not crash my machine with all of those extensions and control panels. Oh, I’m sticking to System 7.1 as well. I also have a CD-ROM, an external hard drive, a SyQuest Removable Hard Drive, and a flatbed scanner hooked up to my Mac. – NO conflicts! I am EXTREMELY PLEASED with this product, and you can quote me, if you wish! RT Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I am a Thai student in Australia. I have been using your software for a while and I really like it. Your CopyPaste is very useful and works well with no problem at all. KE Thailand

CopyPaste has been a terrific convenience to me in the several weeks I’ve been using it. In particular, its’ come in handy when I draft answers to legal complaints (I’m a lawyer), which typically require repetitive use of several sentences or paragraphs. JF Maine, USA

Hi, I am 14 and I live in NY. I downloaded the “CopyPaste” software and I am finding it very useful. You are right…why didn’t Apple think of this? RP, New York City, NY, USA

Just downloaded CopyPaste. Have not read the documentation yet, but with a few minutes of experimenting I realize this is the slickest extension I’ve seen in a long time. Can’t wait to get to the checkbook and send in $20. With the amount of shareware people are grabbing and not paying for, that might sound funny-but I’m greatful for running across your software. WJ Novi, MI USA

A quick note to let you know I’m very pleased with your product. Please look for my check which should arrive later this week. JB

Your right CopyPaste should be part of the basic system software. DM Riverdale GA USA

CopyPaste really is a great utility program! MC Encino, CA USA

A friend of mine recently gave me a copy of your Cut, Copy, Paste program. I love it! In some of my writing I must use repitive phrases or words. It is quicker and simpler to use the multiple clipboards of CopyPaste then use record macros. Its one of those ideas that make you wonder why nobody thought of it sooner. It should be standard equipment on every computer. Well worth the $20. Enclosed you will find my check. BT Mobile, AL USA

Its wonderful! I look forward to receiving the rest of the program! JM Key Largo, FL USA

The *best* piece of shareware I have come across. I’m even willing to pay for it!! Thanks CC Concord, NH, USA

Enclose is my check for $20. It is a very fine program. Your program was highly recommended in the March issue of MacToday a monthly magazine. Thanks for a most useful program. TW Tampa, Florida, USA

It is by far the best multi-clip utility I’ve seen. Thanks DM Grapeview, WA USA

I have been using the Mac since 1986. I have been in search of something to give me multiple copy & Paste capabilities since day one. I’ve used every shareware or commercial product that came along and found them to be either buggy (they conflict with some of the other millions of extensions i have in my system) or difficult to use (it should be as easy as command-c or it isn’t worth the effort). I haven’t been able to find one I liked and would use until I came across yours. I didn’t have much hope of it working since everything else failed, but I am really pleased with CopyPaste. Keep up the good effort! DK Brockport, NY USA

Thank you for a great piece of software! SF Newark, DE USA

Great Product! SW Fountain Valley, CA USA

This is far and away the most useful shareware I picked up in a long time. I am more then glad to remit the shareware fee for this one. You have done a great job here. RR Ridley Park, PA USA

CopyPaste-Best Shareware Utility of 96. These words are clearly true. This is a great utility and I really enjoy it. Keep up the good work!! VR Vancouver, BC Canada

I downloaded it, I tried it, I like it, so here’s the $20. WL Canada

I am delighted with your program. AH Almonte, Ontario Canada

Just what I’ve been looking for for years! GB Davis, California USA

CopyPaste is a wonderful, functional, little tool. Thank You RB Winnipeg Canada

CopyPaste is so cool I can hardly believe it. LOVE how easy it works. Merci! JR Camarillo, CA USA

It is my pleasure to register CopyPaste. Enclosed is my check. I downloaded your terrific product from ZiffDavis Net/Mac via CompuServe. I can’t imagine how I have enjoyed the Mac for these past nine years limited to only one clipboard. The thrashing between sections of a long document or between multiple documents to relocate multiple items has been very frustrating. CopyPaste is a real productivity tool. Once again, I congratulate you and thank you for a job well done. GR

What a gift I received last week from a friend! Congratulations for your CopyPaste. Thanks a lot for having programmed this famous utility. JC Quebec Canada

Copy/Paste, a fine piece of software. LB Scottsdale AZ USA

It really saves me a lot of time when I edit downloads into my databases. GH Glendale, MS USA

What a cool utility! MM

Thanks for making my life much easier. ($20 is in the mail) SH

As an ex-Atari ST I have, in the year ort so that I’ve had a PowerMac, often bemoaned the fact that there is only one clipboard. How could Apple *do* that? I asked! So thanks for CopyPaste. This is to let you know that I have today mailed you a $20 traveller’s check, endorsed to you (left over from my visit to the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Yellowstone, etc, last September. What a trip!) DH Birmingham, England

Picked up your excellent program the other day, and now I can’t live without it , I’m getting a check cut today, hopefully it will be out of here by Friday. KT

I have sent my registration fee to you and am looking forward to getting the password-Key. I found CopyPaste v2.5.4 on America-Online. It is just what I have been looking for. Thank you for your hard work! LL Burlington, Iowa USA

I love CopyPaste! CS San Francisco, California USA

Great Program JB Monroe MI USA

Nice Work! DB Hillsboro OR USA

Excellent!!!!!!!! AD Chicago, IL USA

“CopyPaste Pro just sits in the background, waiting to be used, faithfully collecting and storing whatever you’ve copied or cut, ready to paste the items wherever you want. Despite the lengthy list of power features, the basics are enough to get you started and it’s easy to setup and use.
Someone called CopyPaste Pro Time Machine for your clipboard. While it doesn’t look like Time Machine, it captures and stores pretty much anything you can copy on your Mac and makes it available any time in the future to be pasted.”
– Jack D. Miller, Mac360 12/5/14 (Link)

“The improvement in speed when you have repetitive edits to do is amazing. This is definitively a power tool for the power user and gets a Gearhead rating of 5 out of 5.” – Mark Gibbs, NetworkWorld 6/17/14 (Link)

Take a look at one of my favorite Mac utilities. It’s called CopyPaste Pro. It’s a multiple clipboard manager. That means anything you cut or copy gets stored in a library so it can be pasted again later without having to find it and copy it again. That is a huge time saver. – Tera Thomas O’Brien , TeraTalks, 5/16/14 (Link)

When it comes to my Mac, most of the preaching you’d hear has to do with backups and a handful of essential Mac utilities; those little tools that do better than what Apple builds in to OS X. Here’s one of the best. It’ll make you more efficient, accurate, and productive, which will, in turn, make you a nicer person. CopyPaste. – Jack Miller, Mac360 1/8/14 (Link)

“If You Could Only Have One Productivity Tool For Your Mac Then Choose CopyPaste Pro” – Jack Miller, Mac360 9/13/12 (Link)

“CopyPaste Pro is probably the most useful tool that you never knew you needed. Its indispensable features truly enhance the productivity of your day-to-day work.” – Ben Harvell, MacLife 6/17/11 (Link)

For me, a day without a Mac shareware download is a day without sunshine. That’s why my two hard drives are cluttered with sad little abandoned utilities.

I once loved them. I really did. For a day. For a week. Or just a couple of hours. And then, well, I just plain forgot about the unfortunate little things. So little time, so many new programs. It’s a hard world. And the fact is, most of them never quite did what I needed them to do — speed up the day-to-day tasks and repetitive annoyances of computing.

The only utility to which I’ve remained true is the ever-lovely * CopyPaste from the wonderful folks at Script Software (now Plum Amazing). * CopyPaste is an extension that, when fired up, offers you 100 clipboards to which you can paste essential bits and pieces of documents, URLs you need and just about anything you want to store and then use again. For an editor working on a Mac it’s a little bit of heaven for a mere $21 US.

But don’t take my word for it. Like all shareware you can download it, try it out and if you hate it, then let it languish somewhere in a corner of your hard drive until, in a flurry of excess, you clean everything out (like that’s ever going to happen.)

“I curse Apple for not enabling me to copy more than one item at a time.” But praise be to generous programmers. On Shareware.com, I discovered an application that expands my copying capabilities tenfold. CopyPaste’s nifty text-processing tools let you shift case, tab, or insert text files, pictures, and sounds into a clipboard – the floating palette keeps track of what’s where. Even neater is the clip archive, which drops copied items into a folder on your desktop – fabulously convenient for online researchers.”

“You’ll find that CopyPaste is wonderfully tiny and, like most of my favorite shareware utilities, it has a shy personality — you can send it away and it will discreetly return at your beck and call.” —   more…

“For those who do any kind of writing, CopyPaste-X is an invaluable tool that is easy to learn, and once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. 4.5 out of 5 mice” —   more…

“Si vous voulez gérer totalement vos presse-papiers (les sauvegarder, les éditer, les organiser par thème), CopyPaste est fait pour vous. De même, si vous voulez être aidé à la saisie, sa fonctionnalité yType peut vous aider. Et vu la densité de possibilités, les 30$ demandés ne semblent pas exagérés.”

macaddict review of copypaste

“CopyPaste Pro is an example of a very flexible application because, unlike other productivity applications, it has so many different uses. The developers have improved on such a basic computer function and the results are genius.

The developer of CopyPaste Pro, Plum Amazing, seems to demonstrate this in its other programs – taking simple system programs and pumping them full of oomph and extra features.

CopyPaste Pro has really helped me save time and it is a joy to use – simplistic and feature-rich. Some people may think, however, that the retail price of $30 for the program is a little too much to spend on just a simple utility but you’ll discover that once you get it, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.”

“There is not a day goes by that I do not make use of Copy Paste. Thanks again for a superb utility.” – Robert Towers
