Text Bucket is a background application that provides quick, centralized access to frequently used bits of text (up to 260 items!) via a simple hotkey combination. Think of it as BBEdit's Glossary for your entire system. Hit the hotkey combo, press the number of the slot containing the text you need, and the window vanishes, placing your text on the clipboard for you, ready for use.

Questions? There is extensive help (along with tutorials, faqs, and walkthroughs) built into the application. Just open the app, and click the "Help" button to find out more.

This really works for me! I've so hopefully tried all the multi-clipboards --for years. I'm an 'info-clipping' nut. But I forget --I can't see my saved info --many of my clipboard contents --until days later when it's far to late to include/use that content.

But Text Bucket is brilliant --you can see the multi clipboards --not forget them. The very fast key command is genius! And natural --just what it should be.

But ...you've got to get Text Bucket, work your mind through how it works, then register it for $5. The dinky two demo clipboards will give you little idea of what a marvelous clipping thing this is.

Works fine for me. Dunno if I'll use it long term, though.

Guys, anonymous notes on macupdate about how the program doesn't work and you don't like it and everything's broken are utterly useless.

The program does work (at least on the 4 various macs I've tried, and the registered users are presumably happy with it), so usage problems are simply that - usage problems. Not software.

Yet, I'm at a loss to be able to make suggestions to these anonymous users as to what to do, or find out what they've tried, or offer anything to tell them what to do, since no one's bothering to let me know what their problems are.

I'm not going to post generic "do this, do that" instructions, since I've done it before (I believe they're still in the description), they're included in the read me, and there are extensive walkthroughs and usage tips in the built in help.

If something's lacking, I'm happy to extend the documentation to make things clearer, but until I know what attempts to understand (if any) a user has taken and what it is they don't understand, I'm at a loss.

As the Read Me, help system, website, etc. all say, the program is 100% background and accessed 100% via hotkey.

To bring up the Text Bucket Window, press command-option-control-T (unless you changed it, in which case press whatever you changed it to). That will bring up the Text Bucket window and allow you to use it.

If you still have trouble and can't figure it out, then press the "help" button on the lower part of the window to bring up the help screens to talk you through basic usage.

To quit the program, simply press the "quit" button. Due to how apple's force quit menu works, it's the only way to get out of it other than going through the terminal and killing the process.

You may rest assured, there is nothing sinister about it. Just read the included documentation and help, and you'll be fine.

Much as I hate to write a negative review about any program, this one intrigues me so much that I couldn't resist. Two versions on, I haven't once succeeded in getting it to work the way the author claims (or in any way at all, for that matter).

I'm running 10.2.8 on a G5, so version and power requirements can't be the problem. Version 1.1 did nothing and did it beautifully. Version 1.2 not only does nothing, it disappears completely and then can't be quit (not even force-quit) or deleted from the apps folder. It's in there somewhere, doing God knows what.

For a great time-wasting puzzle, this is excellent -- otherwise, a bit of a lamer. Try again, please, with a Version 1.3, and if it does anything beyond a vanishing act, someone might consider paying for it.

MacUpdaters, you have been warned.....
