Clips is a time machine for your clipboard - it remembers everything you copy/paste so you never lose a thing!
- Unintrusive system clipboard monitoring
When Clips is running you won't even notice it. Its advanced architecture allows it to sit in the background and silently add anything you copy.
- Application automatic clipboards
As you go about your daily business, Clips automatically generates and arranges copied items into Application-specfic clipboards. If that's not enough, you can create your own.
- Smart Clipboards
They're exactly what you'd think they are. Define a set of rules and these clipboards will automagically display all past and future matching clips.
- Live Search
Storing dozens or hundreds of clips? Just start typing in the Clips Board and irrelevant items will fly off the screen instantly.
- Abbreviations: on-the-fly text expansion
Assign Abbreviations to your clips and Clips will type/paste them automatically for you when you enter the abbreviation anywhere on your Mac. Use abbreviations for emails, signatures, code, or anything else you can think of.
Clips enables you to define shortcuts to paste the five most recent items. You can also define your own shortcuts to paste additional clips of your choosing.
- Drag and Drop
Want to store an email, a piece of text, a Web page for future reference? Just drop it onto the Clips panel!
What's New in Version 2.0.5
Adds compatibility with Mac OS X 10.7.3
No help, no demo, and not self-explanatory
The app may be lovely but I can't tell because I haven't been able to figure out how to make it work. It saves my clipboard, all right, but clicking on clips or typing shortcuts does not result in them being pasted into anything.
That could be due to a conceptual failure on my part but (1) there's no help within the app, (2) the FAQ on the vendor's support site is minimal and throws database errors(!), and (3) competing apps have heard of the 21st-century practice of posting nice screencasts to demo your features.
Don't waste your time. Move on.
This app is well done. I like that it shows all auto saved clips and also breaks it down for what apps they're from, if you want that, too. It seems to do everything it does well and I like it. I have no use for the odd graphical layout options, but I like that it has keyboard shortcuts and a list instead.
I do wish it would have a way for me to specify the location of the saved list so I could use Dropbox or iCloud to have it go across machines.
Like it very much but its in need of an update.. Please Update!
