Bugs in this version, but one of the best utilities I’ve used

The original Jumpcut has worked on every system I’ve tried it on and is one of the most useful apps I’ve ever installed, but hasn’t been updated in a long time and I’ve had to cross my fingers that it would work after every OS upgrade... I’m glad Flycut has taken up the reins to keep this utility alive and well, but Flycut has a bug that does not allow it to remember your settings after a restart - unless you tell it to save after each clip… It won’t save your preferences whenever they’re changed like most other apps and it took me a while to figure out how to get it to save its preferences. There’re a couple of reports of this problem on the developers GitHub, but it’s still a problem.

Still, bugs aside it’s one of my most used/first installed utilities and it’s approach to clipboard management fits my style better than all other clipboard buffers/managers that I’ve tried.

Indispensible, Issue with multiple monitors

Indispensible. I must use this a dozens of times a day - can’t imagine doing without.

I found that flycut doesn’t work fully if you are pasting into a window on a second monitor (not sure if it’s still an issue if the second monitor is in mirror mode) - it won’t properly let you select another clipping to paste and only lets you paste the most recent one. Still, I just drag the window to the main monitor and paste there and it works fine.

Wish: I wish there was a snippet/short cut function that could easily paste frequently used things like my email address without having to search for it.

Answer to my Prayers!!!!

For years, Illustrator has lacked the ability to paste unformatted text while InDesign has it built in. I have had to paste into a plain text editor, copy that text, then paste it into my Illustrator document. Frankly, this was a royal pain and irritated me because the functionality was just dangling in front of my face with InDesign. This product is a fantastic solution to my problem. I opted to set up an alternate hot key for pasting plain text (option-v) which is perfect and avoids conflicts with other standard pasting hot keys in Adobe apps as well as the OS. A special thanks to the developers on this one. You guys have created a really nice product.
