4.5.7
27 August 2012

Clipboard buffer stores multiple items.

Overview

PTHPasteboard Pro gives you access to multiple pasteboards, allowing you to copy multiple things without overwriting the last item you copied. How often have you copied something only to find that you need it a few minutes later but you've already copied another item? PTHPasteboard Pro watches you while you work and keeps a copy of any items that you have copied to your pasteboard.

PTHPasteboard Pro tries to stay out of your way until you need it.

This clipboard program offers more sophisticated features than any of the free multiple clipboard managers mentioned below. There is text modification on the fly, programming features and many other features that people need. It is good to have such a program for those people and the price seems reasonable to me. If all you are going to do is bash the software for no reason then don't bother to comment at all. It is immature and does not help anyone else.

I came here because I just upgraded to Mojave and a more-recent Mac. As part of the install, I used Target mode to let the installer pull all my files off the older Mac. PTHPasteboard Pro wanted me to re-enter my serial number on the newer Mac, but it fails because the license server is no longer online. I'm really surprised to read all this here about people having so many problems! I've been using it on every Mac OS up to High Sierra without a hiccup. I was hoping to find a file-based way to transfer the license, but it seems folks have given up on PTH long ago. I guess I was lucky!

It used to be good, but stay away from it. There are many, many, many alternatives now. I use iClip, but there are many others as well. PTHPasteboard would not let me register (and the developer responded, but his claimed solution never worked.) Plus it has not been updated in 4 years. Time to move on, everyone.
iClip seems to be one that is still updated.

The old version I have (4.4.1) still works ok on Sierra 10.12.2 - if you remember to not doubleclick on words in Chrome, Safari and some other apps. Just click and swipe the words instead. In Firefox and TextWrangler doubleclicking works fine.
Edit: Also, in Chrome etc, use shift + click to chose items that are not on top of list.

Will Pastebot (http://tapbots.com/pastebot/beta/) be the next PTHPasteboard? Not sure, but wasn't Paul Haddad (one of the guys behind Tapbots) the developer of PTHPasteboard? I hope I am right because PTHPasteboard was alwyas my preferd pasteboard manager.

I’ve just installed El Capitan. Believe it or not, PTHPasteboard is again compatible with Safari. I don’t know how to explain it, but it works.

I stopped using PTHPasteboard after they started charging for it just for bug fixes. ClipMenu works better, and is fully compatible with 10.11

And it's free.

Like a lot of people here, I really miss PTHPasteboard, but I may have found a replacement for it. There is a plugin for Quicksilver simply called Clipboard Plugin. In the plugin documentation you will find this : "The Clipboard Window is a floating panel specific to Quicksilver, giving it several useful features for positioning. Positioning the window on the side of the screen will cause it to become 'docked' on the screen edge. It will then slide into the screen edge. Hover over the edge of the screen to make the window reappear. The position of windows is remembered across restarts of Quicksilver, and you can have the window disappear after pasting by enabling the 'Hide after pasting' option in the preferences." It’s a very simple clipboard. Nothing fancy, but it’s free. It has been updated on 2015-04-19 and it works fine with Safari. http://qsapp.com/plugins.php

Thank you for the useful advice!
Now I'm trying QuickSilver despite the criticism for it here on MacUpdate and I will compare it with PTHPasteboard using both of them

It seems the web site has gone AWOL, and the download link no longer works. Shame - nice software, which I have come to rely on.

A reason more to avoid to DOWNGRADE to Yosemite!
I'm still using with full satisfaction the version 4.4.1on Mavericks and, when I try Yosemite on the partition I made to see if at least I will be able to work with Yosy as with Mav, the bigger miss I feel is just my beloved PTHP (beside the UGLY interface of anything, by Spotlight to Mail, by icons to fonts… but it's not the first time that Apple does an UI downgrade).
I still wonder what the bloody hell will FORCE ME to windowize my Mac bending myself to use this OS mistake or 'skipping this version' hoping in a regret and that Steve puts his HOLY HAND on the head of Tim 'enlightening him with an understanding fatherlike smile.
4 stars because of the too high price that made it a niche product victim of a totally wrong marketing strategy!

It's a shame. They discontinued support for OS X 10.10. Don't understand why they wouldn't simply update the code to make it fully compatible. They are almost there. The only problem is that it does not work with the Safari browser?

it doesn't work with Parallels 10 either when using Excel 2003 and a macro to do large paste operations—both apps hang for a very long time.

Even though it’s old, and a little bit clunky on Yosemite, PTHPasteboard is still the best (for my needs). I must have tried all clipobard apps on the market, including iClipboard, iClip, ClipMenu, Jumpcut, CopyPaste Pro and several others, but I always come back to PTHP. I’d like to think that the developper is still working on a version compatible with Yosemite, but everything suggests that the application is really gone for good. And no website anymore. It’s been replaced by a page showing these two sentences : "PTHPasteboard is not currently available for sale, due to incompatibility with Mac OS X 10.10. You can download the latest version here." My hope lies on the word "currently", meaning that maybe it hasn’t been totally abandonned. Very sad. II’d be willing to pay full price again to get a version of PTHP fully compatible with Yosemite..

Alas, it's worse than "clunky" on Yosemite. Periodically there will be a bunch of "tool tip" yellow windows with many of the previously clipped items in it, and they cannot be dismissed (they remain until reboot).

Me too!
Actually I don't have any problems with PTH Pasteboard Pro 4.5.7 on OS X 10.10. The only problem that I have is that it does not work when it comes pasting stuff into Safari. That does not work. There is some sort of issue. It works great with BBEdit, Terminal, Word, Text Edit, etc.

Il also have this problem, but turning PTHPasteboard off and on usually fixes it.

same here, no Safari problems, but it does cause Parallels 10 to hang (but not Parallels 9). i would gladly and eagerly a lot more than the $24 already spent on this gem that i've used for years and years. taking it out of my workflow hurts that bad. there just is no better or on par app like PTHPasteboard Pro.
