Copy 'Em overview

Copy 'Em is a powerful clipboard manager for turbocharging your daily workflow. It records your clipboard history of copied text, images, links, and screenshots, etc., and lets you recall/paste them anytime, right at your fingertips. Use it to copy and paste items in batches (so minimizing switching between apps), capture screenshots and collect research data, store favorite items permanently, paste frequent snippets via keyboard shortcuts, drag and drop images as file attachments, strip text formats or transform text, organize items into lists, sort and label them, look them up by keywords/types, preview and edit their text, and sync them between Macs, iPhones, and iPads. All done with speed and reliability. It is a valuable time-saver that is both rich in features and easy to use!

Key Features
  • Automatically remembers the things copied by regular copy/cut commands
  • Accepts text, images, links, HTML, code, PDFs, files, and clippings of proprietary formats
  • Can store unlimited number of items
  • Export all or selected items to disk, and import them back on any Mac; e.g., use them as backups or share them
  • Automatically sync your data and preferences through your own iCloud account
  • Click the app's menubar icon or press Command-Shift-V (customizable) to open the app window
  • Can paste items via drag-and-drop into target applications
  • Can be configured to paste into VNC, NoMachine, Parallels, etc.
  • Can paste multiple snippets together, across multiple lines, form fields, or spreadsheet cells
  • Can paste items with local shortcuts ('0' to '9' and 'a' to 'z')
  • Can paste items with unlimited number of global shortcuts
  • Plain-text mode option to paste any rich text as plain text
  • Hold Option key to switch between pasting text as plain text or rich text (i.e., temporarily do the opposite of plain-text mode)
  • Text transformation options (capitalization, line-unwrapping, stripping whitespace, adding prefixes/suffixes, etc.)
  • Option to paste text items as files
  • Can paste images as files of original or different image formats
  • Can enable/disable paste transformations with global shortcuts
  • Press Space or Left-Arrow key to preview items in a large, resizable popover window
  • Unlimited number of lists for you to organize your favorite items
  • Auto-star mode where newly arrived items are automatically put into the current starred list
  • Can open specific lists via keyboard shortcuts
  • Use swiping or Command-[ and Command-] shortcuts to navigate backward and forward between lists
  • Sort items by drag-and-drop, creation dates, most-recently-used dates, and paste frequency, etc.
  • Each list can be sorted in its own sort order
  • Find items by search, content-type filtering, and application-name filtering
  • Fast searching, with search-as-you-type, and options to auto-focus and auto-clear the search field
  • Can edit text items
  • Can assign names to items or edit them
  • Open app window next to current mouse location (in order to minimize mouse movement)
  • Option to keep the window open after each paste operation; by default, the window automatically closes after use
  • Capture screenshots (full screen, windows, selected areas, etc.)
  • Blacklist applications, so clippings from them won't be saved
  • Stop (or resume) recording new clippings
  • Can delete selected items, selected sets, or entire lists
  • Can lock starred items from accidental deletion
  • Change the theme, with option to show text items in original colors or grayscale
  • Automatically switch theme according to the OS theme setting
  • Option to play sounds when copying and/or pasting

This Mac app can sync with Copy 'Em for iPhone and iPad, which is separately available on the App Store. (The two apps are sold separately.)

Copy'Em is in the top 5 copy/paste applications. I have all of them: Copy'Em, CopyLess, Paste Wizard, iClip, and Pasta. Unfortunately Pasta is extremely heavy on resources, especially memory. So I don't use it anymore, although it's very very useful, as you can see all clips clearly in one go.

this looks like a nice replacement for Clipy, but at 15 bucks it needs a trial version - been let down too many times by apps that sound great but I don't end up using.

Pastebot is great. Copyem Paste is even better. I like the sequential paste in Pastebot. But, Copyem Paste is better over all.

Reading all the reviews I decided to jump onto the bandwagon, on paper it looks very similar to my fave (but left to wither away) "Clipboard Center". And it is, but better even! Hope this dev does not let us down too soon.. This is way better than CopyPaste Pro (the once upon time leader), way way way better than gimmicky Paste. And I won't mention any others but I've tried many many over the years.

This is the best clipboard manager!! I've tried or used most. They are very important in my work. This has fantastic features and great layout, highly recommend. And the dev is extremely responsive. I wrote to him about a problem in OS X 10.12.6 Sierra and the NEXT DAY he posted the fix on the App Store! I never give 5-star reviews, but just had to for this!

I've probably tried all of the clipboards available over the past 10 years or so, and this is my current favorite. It lacks a feature I'd find useful, though: to talk to IOS.

Looking for a new clipboard manager at the moment. I hear good things about Paste and Copyem Paste, but wanting to compare and get something that works via keyboard shortcuts (not a purely visual interface) and light-weight. Has anyone tried both Paste and Copyem Paste?

This app is really well designed. It is very easy to paste not only the last item but also prior items. Also, Copy Paste stopped working properly for me this week and I contacted the author. He responded immediately and provided numerous suggestions, walking me through the problem with a series of back and forth emails. The tech support is excellent.

Love this app. New v2.5 added an IAP for (1) saving all or some clippings to disk, and (2) syncing across Macs. Not for me, so I'm not buying the IAP... but if they come up with a solid iOS multiclipboard and offer cross-platform sync I'm there!

As a long time user of CopyPaste Pro since OS 8 (I think), I had to search for a new CopyPaste App once it started to misbehave in macOS10.13. I asked the Copy 'em Paste author if he would send me a trial, which he did within minutes. I quickly got used to the new way of doing things and I am pleased to give it 5 stars. Included in this is the superb support from the author Hoi. Highly recommended
