CopyLess 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.

  • See instantly the preview of stored items.
  • Seamless OS X Quick Look integration to preview the content of stored items.

  • 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.

CopyLess and Copy'Em were first copy applications when I switched over to Mac in 2007. Both are the very best of all copy/paste applications. UNFORTUNATELY, CopyLess is not updated to Silicon Mac, and needs Rosetta to use it. I refuse to install additional crap on my new iMac M1. So, I disable it and use Copy'Em and PasteWizard only, until the developer updates to NO Rosetta, Silicon.

WORTH. EVERY. CENT 10 times over! (Yep… It's so well designed *and* reliable, I ended up paying for it. And I'd do it again!)

I have downloaded this app. I get only one screen when I click on the icon. This shows the items I have copied. I don't know how to use this app and can not find a way to get a User friendly manual. All the features advertised may be somewhere but I have tried everyplace I can think of and cannot get but the one screen. Very frustrating for an old man.

App Store is a pain in the Mac! I can't upgrade it for days! On the developer site should be a direct download link and, generally speaking, we all should boycott the App Store'!!!
