One of the revolutionary features that came with the Mac in 1984 was the unique ability to select text or pictures, etc, then copy that data into a clipboard, to hold that content temporarily and then paste it in the same application or a different one. The clipboard was used to transfer all kinds of info between programs on the Mac, and later this feature was imitated in many other operating systems.
A few years later CopyPaste was the first to add multiple clipboards. This meant that more data could be moved in less time. CopyPaste also allowed these multiple clipboards to be displayed, edited, archived and saved through restarts. CopyPaste revealed the untapped potential of the Mac clipboard.
The latest incarnation of CopyPaste has those same underlying abilities, but with this latest version two new instantly available windows (the Clip Browser similar to the Apple application switcher, and the Clip Palette as a compact vertical list ) that let you navigate through the Clip History and Clip Archive with speed and ease. A clip editor called Bean (really a lightweight word processor) is now part of the CopyPaste Pro ecology. Bean allows you to edit clipboards. CopyPaste Pro is all together simple and extremely powerful.
CopyPaste Pro Features:
* Multiple clipboards available by hotkey, menu, contextual menu and clip browser
* Save all clipboards thru restarts. Never lose an edit again. This alone is a savior
* Clip History maintains a stack of cuts or copies and even drags
