CopyLess is an advanced and flexible clipboard manager.

Unlike the system clipboard CopyLess can store up to 100 items to which you have instant access at any time. With CopyLess is no longer necessary to switch constantly between different applications or windows just to copy and paste several different items. Everything can now be copied at once and pasted when and wherever it is required.

Simple and intuitive user interface allows you to focus on your essential work and not on application itself and there are no distracting visual effects or inconsistent content presentation.

I revisited this and I really like it, except that for my purposes, the only advantage it has over the open-source Jumpcut is the favorites list, which is a nice bonus but I don't really need it.

I wish there was a way to quickly paste all the clippings, or all the selected clippings, at once. You can select multiple clippings but it turns out it's only for deleting. The 'copy to clipboard' and the 'paste direct' function work on only one clipping even when you have several selected. Too bad. No reason to buy this because I already have Jumpcut.

I also don't like the serial paste option because I don't want my clippings automatically rearranged.

From the manual on serial paste: "The list will rotate automatically . This way you’ll be able to paste many elements in the same order you’ve copied them and using only one shortcut."

But when doing this, the serial paste option can only cycle through ten items and then you start re-pasting the first item without warning.

Would be nice if the first serial-paste item is the oldest, not the newest. Then no need for a ten-item limit.

Issues with a couple of apps, specifically:

VERY SCARY:
PATHFINDER
Cut a file to paste it into another folder.. and.. oops, it's gone, where ? Well it becomes a text link in CopyLess. Wonder what really happens to the file itself I must say.. But it does nit do that in XtraFinder.. where cutting/pasting files works fine with CopyLess activated.

ANNOYING
CURIO(Took me time to understand what was happening, thought it as a Curio issue a first).
It "tends to"* copy text as image so when I paste text back I get an image of my text..
*Sometimes it copies ok sometimes not.. weird.

I wish it had an append-to-clipboard function (like launchbar's clipmerge.) That way i can copy many related things and paste it all at once.

You can't do that with this app?

The dev's website says:
"With CopyLess is no longer necessary to switch constantly between different applications or windows just to copy and paste several different items. Everything can now be copied at once and pasted when and wherever it is required."

"Paste up to 10 recent items and 10 favorites with user-defined keyboard shortcuts without opening the main window."

Maybe I misunderstood what is is you need to do, but it sounds like CopyLess can paste many items at once (I haven't tried it, so I don't know).

A clipboard utility is so central. I've gone through a few in circa 20 years.. Last one I've used for quite some time was iClipboard (CopyPaste Pro is so overrated.. even if it used to be good a loooooong time ago.. don't like any of the others much... I had high hopes in Shadow/Stuf when it popped up.. yawn.. it went nowhere etc etc). Some others have come and gone.. Most are just ugly, too basic.. and I love a pretty face with brains (isn0't that was MAc is all about ?!).. Oh well.. every once in while I look to see if there is anything new in this realm.. and there is.. and it's very pretty/modern.. and I just bought it :0)

My new clipboard lovin' goes to CopyLess ! Honeymoon time !!! Meaow :0)

For some years now I'm a user of the fast and free "Clipmenu". I cannot use my Mac without it anymore.
Copyless is more beautiful and has the same functionality, but with more options. And is $6.99. Hmmmm, I'll have to decide. :-)
Thanks for the great app.

I forgot to mention one advantage of ClipMenu:
I can put much more than 30 limit Pastboard capacity/history. I have mine with a limit of 200 items. But you can put more if you want. :-)

Note, the free lite version is here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/copyless-lite/id456074843?mt=12

Difference from the full version is that it can only store the last 10 items, and only allows for 3 favorites.

This thing is GREAT! Previous reviewers have misinformed themselves and others. I used the FREE CopyPaster 1.7.3 for a year on SL. Now it is on the App Store in two versions, CopyLess Lite FREE DEMO and CopyLess 1.7.4 pay $6.99. What more could you want?If you like a featureless Free alternative, get JumpCut.

I looked at this on MU some time ago, and came back today to check it again. There are a couple of changes:

• App is now called CopyLess in the MAS. That's where you'll land if you click the Buy button above.

• App now costs $6.99 in the MAS

• App's version is now 1.6.2

CopyPaster now resides on my Menu Bar, Thank you for your expeditious updates and please keep up the accelerated pace of improvements. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated and I offer a humble reprieve from my previous negative observations. Three and a half stars heading for five at the current rate of development, looking forward.
