CopyLess

2.12.5
30 September 2019

Store and access up to 100 clipboard items.

Overview

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.

Features
  • Everything you copy to the clipboard will be added to CopyLess list automatically.
  • Extend your clipboard up to 100 items.
  • Copy and paste data in any format supported by OS X: text, pictures, files, and any applications specific data...
  • See instantly the preview of stored items.
  • Seamless OS X Quick Look integration to preview the content of stored items.
  • Favorites list to store the items persistently. One click adds the item to the favorites list.
  • Paste as a "Plain Text" option.
  • Access the clipboard with a single user defined keystroke.
  • Paste up to 10 recent items and 10 favorites with user-defined keyboard shortcuts without opening the main window.
  • Displays the icon of source application the data was copied from.
  • Integrated search to find fast the right item.
  • Customizable labels for stored items to find them even faster.
  • Put any element to the system clipboard without pasting it in to the active application.
  • Define the maximal number of items stored in CopyLess.
  • Optionally paste data with a single mouse click.
  • Integrated "Quick Help" immediately explains all important features.

I like this. It works well and really helps with productivity. There is one gripe however, regarding visibility. I wish we could choose the font size in the clip viewer, it is very small and difficult to see. I could work faster if I could read less of the clip with bigger text. One other thing that would improve visibility would be the ability to choose black on a white background.

This is really a form over function that many developers are adopting. In an attempt to mimic Apple's Pro apps. That's okay, but I feel it would be so easy to give users the choice in preferences.

Pixelmator has chosen this way too. So I have to adjust my screen brightness and resolution before using it. The result is, I don't use it so much.

Clipboard Center (updated 2 years ago on AppStore and much older version on here..) is similar but much more advanced and still works perfectly.. Just sad it does not seem to be maintained. I tried the new Pro version of Copyless... maybe the dev could study Clipboard Center and "Copy More" so as to be as good.
PS: I hate Paste btw. Trying too hard to be clever and ends up being not so practical.

The free version has a significant drawback as it allows only five favourite items - I expected at least 30 - so you will have to upgrade, paying $6.99.

To developer: 1. Clicking on the menubar icon should bring up the window. The other application's menu items should be under an icon on the window thus, it will take two steps to paste an item. 2. After marking an item as favourite it should not stay in the 'All' column. Many thanks

I bought “CopyLess” on App Store a few days ago. If this doesn’t put you off (I know there’s always someone to pick up a bone on this) then please read on! I like CopyLess especially for a very powerful feature that helps me out with my tedious work of copying and pasting several items in a row. It’s called “Serial Copy&Paste” and consists of copying tens of let’s say ‘song titles’ all at once and then paste them orderly and individually to the desired destination. Imagine the time one saves when accomplishing this function hundreds of time a day. I call it a "machine gun" for fun but it actually feels like a real one compared to a tiny pistol that shoots only one shot at a time! Therefore no mousing around any more for transferring hundreds of fields from one archive to another in a hefty database! Add to this the possibility of converting the rich text into simple text at the click of a mouse and assigning a shortcut to the recent ten items and you’ll get a better picture why it’s a unique program in the crowded market of similar applications.

In the interest of helping prospective users to make an informed decision these features are not free but cost $7. From Apple Store:

Some features are not available in a free version:
- Max clipboard history capacity and unlimited amount of favorites
- Syncing [I believe this refers to iCloud - ed]

These features can be unlocked by making a one-time payment for $6.99.

My favorite OS X clipboard app. Simple, unobtrusive in compact mode, no bloated bells and whistles. I used to use PTH Pasteboard and ClipMenu (and a couple of others), but switched when each became unsupported and I had some problems. Try the free CopyLess Lite first to see if you like it. -.5 stars because of the 100-pasteboard max. Would be nice if we could save virtually infinite, like with Ditto for Windows.

That’s not the point Popguru. I mean, is it a good sign that this developer doesn't keep their web presence up to date? My experience is that when this happens, the software becomes abandonware.
