CopyPaste Pro is an excellent program that I have used for many, many, many years! It allows me to store many items I use over and over again and retrieve them in an instant from the drop down menu. I can also store clips in Archives, so I don’t have to scroll through all of my clips, just those in particular groupings. I use CopyPaste Pro every single day, and wouldn’t want to be without it!

I've been using for years...this program is loaded with features, amazingly helpful Clip Tools for manipulating text, and is a dream to use. I've tried half a dozen copy/paste programs over the years, and CopyPaste Pro wins hands down. Can't recommend enough!

I've used CopyPaste Pro for seventeen years, and depend on it. So much so that a few weeks ago, when I bought a new iMac and discovered my copy no longer worked, I was distressed and miserable to go back to Apple's one copy, one paste at a time system software. CopyPaste Pro creator Julian Miller saw I hadn't updated in eleven years, yet still cut me a stiff discount to get back in the flow. Incredibly generous. I use the app probably more than any other, and it has saved me enormous time and grief. I'll do my best not to wait another eleven years to update.

You're welcome: I've been attempting to get the Command-C problem in CPP, caused by a change/blunder Apple made in macOS 10.14.4, fixed since March 25th. I'd been experiencing the problem since the first beta of 10.14.4 (as I'm a masochist and therefore a member of AppleSeed). Thank you Julian for taking me seriously, eventually.

CPP is happily still in development and my favorite copy/paste app. But the developer pointed out to me that the app hasn't had a paid upgrade version in several YEARS. Therefore, the income they make from CPP has diminished and isn't motivating them to support it. I have two (2) CPP licenses. That helped get my bug report taken seriously. I've suggested they create a paid upgrade version in order to bring in new income. (Don't hit me please!) Either that or add some easy method of donating further funds to the cause. I hope they take that seriously as well. I'd like to see CPP continue onward.

I must point out that if CPP goes haywire in the future, the next best thing I've found, after lots of testing, is iClip 5. It's very nice.

v3.7.2 not work right. Does not copy most of the time with Command + C or using Copy from Edit Menu, and when it does paste, it makes 3 click sound first. Weird. And it's not just me as I have a client that I made buy, and they have same problem. Please fix!!!

Not to knock the app but I'd have to look at any advantages it has over the freeware application ClipMenu.app that I have been using daily for many years now, especially before spending $30.00 on this app, and I'm surprised it's not even listed here by macupdate. And did I mention that it's FREE and very expandable and fairly customizable: See more at the developer's site: http://www.clipmenu.com/

I have always love CopyPaste, but since upgrading to Mojave the copy function only works if I hold down Command-V for an extended period and it will not paste by click, I have to drag and drop. Interested if anyone else has this problem. Don't want to have to search for a different program. Using version 3.5.9

It's not broken. Go to Security and Privacy, scroll on the left to Accessibility, select CopyPaste, and you're done! It works just as it always has. I've been using CopyPaste since it was introduced and I don't see how any teacher or writer can work without it. I can copy text pretty much endlessly, (shorter pieces are easier to organize) and then paste things into a document. Not in the right place? Command/x and paste it somewhere else. It's also a nice place to store quotations to append to emails. I keep two clipboards on my desktop, one with more permanent items. the other for temporary stuff. This app has saved me hundreds of hours and made editing so easy. I shudder every time a new OS comes out, but CopyPaste has always updated quickly and this fix was easy. I've been using Macs for 34 years. This is the most useful 3rd party app I've ever had.

Love this app and have been using it for years, but its broken on Mojave 10.14. Will not copy to its clipboard. If I quit Copy Paste Pro v3.5.5, then Apple's clipboard works as expected. Common Apple, take the hint and incorporate this option!

CopyPaste Pro does not work with El Capitan (French) : it always pastes the same copied extract, the last one, and even prevents Keyboard Maestro to execute its recorded macros. So, I tried it five minutes… and discarded it, waiting for a new version.

Extremely slow in copying. For example, when I press command-C to copy text from my browser and the open a new tab, Copy Paste hasn't copied the text in time, it also messes with the keyboard mapping so command-T doesn't always open a new tab. The slowness of the app makes it unusable at worst and unreliable at absolute best. Also, it's incompatible with photoshop, so you can't copy selections or anything really in photoshop. I've contacted support, but they haven't replied to my emails. Don't expect any serious updates to this product any time soon. A complete waste of money.

Well, OS 10.10 is nearly there and CopyPaste is still acting weirdly in 10.9: when copy/pasting from one app to another, clips are doubled, tripled... :-/ I've tried any possible setting in the prefs, no way. I've found that Launchbar has a clipboard functionality that can be triggered with Command-V too... As it does so much more for the same price, and I already use it, I'll probably say goodbye to CopyPaste. :-(

I have been using CopyPaste for nearly twenty years. I use only a few core features such as... - save clipboard history automatically [cmd + c] - paste the history item without using mouse [cmd + v + v to bring up the clip browser]. - copying to/pasting from the clip archive [e.g. cmd + c + 1 to copy and cmd + v + 1 to paste] but it improves my productivity a lot. And the last bug I had reported was fixed within a few days (they sent me a pre-released version for testing). Great product!

Sometimes I want to shoot the developer. When version 3.3.3 was updated to version 3.4 on my OS X 10.8.x Mac Mini, the update popped up automatically and just worked and fixed a bug that had annoyed me for years. Thank you. But the version 3.4 update NEVER showed up on my OS X 10.7.x MacBook. I'd expected it would and forgot about it. So today, over three months after the 3.4 update, I am figuring out why CopyPaste stopped 'beep'ing when I copy on my MacBook, casually check for updates, and oh yeah it forgot to automatically figure out there was the 3.4 update, here you go. Where is my gun? Anyway, at least the developer occasionally updates and this is a nice update. It's better than nothing. But oh what a clunk-fest CopyPaste has become. Sheesh. Do try harder Peter. I used to be a fan.

I have used CPP since v. 2.x. I installed v. 3.x, and Bean would not work. (No, they had not shifted to TextEdit yet. It simply did not work.) My multiple emails to tech support went unanswered. I uninstalled 3.x and re-installed 2.x. I has worked as usual until recently, when Bean was broken again. I have not found a product that is superior to CopyPaste Pro in terms of speed and accessibility. I work very fast, doing legal research and writing at great speed, gobbling up text from legal authorities. CPP works pretty well for that purpose. Nevertheless, it is not perfect. I would shop around first.

I've lost much time trying other apps but this is the only one to my knowledge that you can use with Command-V shortcut, making it totally integrated in your workflow right from the start, without the need to learn other shortcuts or tinker with a menu item or a popping sidebar, etc. Just copy then paste normally! (I've set it that way so I can press multiple times Command-V to get to the clip I need) I also like the Shift+mouse to the edge to make history appear, when I need an older clip, and also the fact that when you paste a clip that way it becomes the first ready to be pasted if you need it more than once in a row. Nevertheless, I must agree with the other gentlemen here that there are historical bugs such as Command-C suddenly not working (I think it's because I've typed another shortcut right after it): my workaround is to go to the Edit menu and do the Copy that way, then it works again. I've noticed different bugs in QuarkXpress where, for example, the last letter is added twice if you paste something in the Find window; more boring styles are sometimes lost when pasting multiple paragraphs. But as I can't find a real competitor, I stick to Copypaste until someday... :-) On the price side, I find all those multiple clipboard softwares pretty expensive for something that should have been integrated decades ago in Mac OS... (so when you bought one, you're not keen on paying 30 bucks once again for another one, even if it has some bugs)

LOOK ELSEWHERE for a decent clipboard extension and management program. Here's why: There are two big fat, ancient, never repaired bugs in CopyPaste Pro that have inspired me to look elsewhere. 1) At unpredictable times, it breaks simple Command-C. It simply does not work, period. You must use an added keyboard command to copy anything. The only cure is to Quit the app. Then Command-C works again. You can restart CopyPaste Pro again and probably Command-C will work for a while. But it will eventually break again. 2) Command-C-3 and Command-C-4 haven't worked in MANY years. They are unusable. You'll fail if you try. These problems occur on all Macs i have used, all versions of OS X. They are universal. I've been a CopyPaste Pro beta tester for years. I told the developer about both of these ancient bugs. NOTHING AT ALL was ever done to fix them. In the case of the Command-C-3 and -4 problems, the developer threw up his hands and gave up. I'm not convinced he ever bothered to try to fix them. I believe he was just too lazy to care. In the case of the breaking of Command-C, I've told him three times, from kindly to EMPHATICALLY and he plain old don't give a rat's. He doesn't care. That's a WORTHLESS relationship between developer and customer. It's reckless apathy, undeserving of anyone's financial support. Therefore, I can only suggest: LOOK ELSEWHERE for a decent clipboard extension and manager application. This is NOT the application you're looking for. I'm a very long time CPP user who is disgusted with the now lazy, uncaring developer. NOT worth your money. NOT worth your frustration.

Many years ago, this used to be a great app, one of my favorites. Then it was sold, and now it's a mess. Unresponsive, often unreliable (doesn't keep in memory what's copied / cut, so you paste the last clipboard)... Shame.

This could be a very good app but it suffers from big draw backs. Why is this app sometimes slow in responding/reaction? Why does it sometimes uses a hugh amount of memory (about 10x the size of the stuff you copy/paste). If this could be fixed I buy a registration promptly.

CopyPaste Pro only runs when the program is launched and it's SLOW and awkward. I like the idea of having a clipboard history, but not if it's going to come at the cost of 1/2 a second of wait time before a normal paste is executed. This was a waste of my money. I wish I had tried the shareware first. That's my lesson for being impulsive. Don't follow my mistake.

CopyPaste Pro looks like it could be a great tool, but unfortunately it is missing a vital feature that I need: fully customisable shortcuts, and better keyboard handling. I am using a much simpler clipboard history (the one that comes with Alfred), and will continue to do so for two key reasons: 1. I can customise the shortcut key that opens the clip viewer. 2. I can choose previous clips with a shortcut key, or by typing to search. I can't do these things in CopyPastePro, so even though it offers many more features, it is slower/more cumbersome to use than the tool I already have. Please provide the option of customising ANY shortcut to open the browser - I don't like either Cmd+VV or Cmd+V (hold CMD). I want Cmd+Alt+V, but really it should allow you to record any shortcut. Once the browser is open, I want to be able to choose one of the entries (or at least one of the first ten entries), by hitting a number. At the moment, numbers are used to select Clip Archive entries, but there's no way to select Clip History entries by number or any other shortcut. One problem is that the clip history only remains open when Command is held down. This limits your shortcut abilities. I want to hit a shortcut, e.g. Cmd-Alt-V, and then release and have the browser remain. Then you could provide the ability to have Cmd+number = choose clip from browser, Alt+number = choose clip from archive, etc, and also you could provide a text entry box and allow free typing to search/filter the list. This is VERY useful - I often have hundreds of clips in my clip history, and I need to be able to free text search them. But I don't want to have to use my mouse to click a special entry in the menu for this, I just want to use my normal shortcut, type to filter, then hit enter (or Cmd+number) to select the clip. So in general I think you need to review how your app is used by power keyboard users - it should be possible to access all the main features of the app with keyboard alone. Really I think you should provide a dedicated "Assign Keyboard Shortcuts" preference screen, where the user can assign any shortcut to any and all of your features. One final thing - I don't like the horizontal view of the Clip Browser. I want vertical. The Clip Palette supports vertical, and I can open that with a better shortcut (Cmd+Ctr+Opt+V), but then I can't control it with the keyboard, so it's useless. I really like the potential of this app, and I would definitely use it if it supported fast use via keyboard, and fully assignable shortcuts. But as it is, I am using a much less powerful clipboard app, because that app is still far faster for me because it has good keyboard support.

Looked at this awhile back, and re-installed it a week ago. Overall works fine, but "edit" clips (history OR archive) does not work- just hear a beep and nothing happens. Tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling, but still not working. I emailed the developer about this through the site (and another minor question) a week ago, have heard nothing back. I definitely consider support response as thinking about whether to purchase. This is a relatively expensive app (relative to other apps in this category). I have NO problem paying for it and supporting developers, but do expect to hear back on issues within a couple days.

I acquired CopyPaste Pro 3.3 as an intended upgrade to my existing CopyPaste-X, which had shown several nuisance glitches ever since I had upgraded my Mac from OS 10.5.8 to 10.6.7. Well... I have a large number of CP-X Clipsets, and expected an ability to import those into CP-P. The CP-Pro Online Manual claims: 'You can import clipboards from old CopyPaste-X by using the "Import Clip Sets..." command from the "Select Clip Archive" menu.' Sounds promising. Unfortunately it is simply not true: There is no such command! Back to CP-X.

CopyPaste Pro 3.3 quit working in both Lion and Snow Leopard, for me anyway. It will collect my copied items and put them in the pallet. I will not paste the items in any application I try. If I set preferences to edit a clip in Bean, Bean launches, without the clip in the edit window. If I set the preferences to paste on click, it won't paste. If I click the P button, it won't paste. Drag and drop from the pallet does work. CPP 3.3 is essentially useless. I contacted the developer more than a week ago, and did not receive a response. I am perfectly willing to believe this problem is related to my machines/software. I don't really have anything that unusual installed, but who knows? If my software is causing the problem, the developer should perhaps lend a hand in helping me sort things out. As is, he/she has not responded one way or the other.

I have sent numerous bug reports to the developer about this, but nothing is being done. Clip palettes still don't open after logins/ restarts. One has to manually select "About" in the menu to make them appear or "re-launch" application. (MAC OSX Lion 10.7.3)

I was an avid user of TechTools back a long time ago. When it was no longer available, I was bummed out. I loved it's features, like being able to clean up copy and also to fix things like caps to lowercase and more. Then Copy/Paste arrived on the scene and I've been using it ever since. I love it!!! Especially since I am a writer and a graphic designer. I can use both interchangeably and it's a dream. The only thing that I'm having issues with right now is with C/P & Bean marriage. Bean was working fine in previous versions. Now, when I do the "open selection in editor" function, Bean opens up but no one is home. It's just a blank document. Before, it would automatically transfer to Bean. It's a bit annoying, but I can work around it. When I write, I use TextEdit or Word because I can make changes that are important to me without having to go through hoops. Anyone else having issues like this that have not been covered already? On another note, I messed up one of my clipboards and have had some problems getting it back to where it was. Oh, well! Don't try to do too many things at once. My bad. My lesson learned.

I need a replacement for PTH Pasteboard (which seems to have some problems under Lion), so I tried CopyPaste, which I last used 5 years ago. Answer: CopyPaste runs under Lion, BUT CPU utilization went up drastically. At first it was 30% (of one processor; 15% overall). Then it went up to ~100%. Even when not in active use. So I've dumped it. Fortunately I didn't pay yet. Is this normal under other OS's, or is it just under Lion?

Been a long time user and love this app, however there is a problem with this version. I am no longer able to double click a clip to edit. There seems to be a disconnect between copypaste and the new copy of bean it installs. I notified the developer but so far nothing.

Seems like an app like this would leave a larger cpu/memory footprint than a pasteboard app with less features. I don't know as I haven't tested it yet but would like to hear how it behaves. I already have enough background processes going that I can't afford sharing much more resources.

I really like CopyPaste Pro, but I wanted to add a warning about something that happened to me recently. This applies to Mobile Me, so in some ways it is moot, since Mobile Me will be going away in favor of iCloud; however, this problem might occur with other apps. I was having difficulty doing anything on Mobile Me once I logged in. Couldn't switch apps or even log out. Spent a long time with an Apple rep on chat. Rebooted my Mac. Did everything I could think of and still it would not work. Figured the problem had to be with Mobile Me. So I tried it on my new Macbook Air, and no problem. So back to the Mac. Closed every app I could think of, and no problem with Mobile Me. Started opening apps one at time until, Bingo. Problem occurred with CopyPaste Pro open. Closed CopyPaste Pro, problem went away. Opened it, problem returned. A minor issue, and a non-issue for anyone not using Mobile Me, but I suppose it might happen with other browser-based apps. And, BTW, it also happened with Chrome. So, If you have CopyPaste Pro running and you run into a problem with an app in your browser, try closing CopyPaste Pro to see if the problem goes away.

The free trial will be expiring soon, but no serious issues yet. This app has come a long way since I last used it. (That would be the beta version.) I have the worst luck when it comes to clipboard apps. I've purchased five and each was a bad experience. I purchased the following: CopyPaste-yType, iPaste, iClip, Clipboard Evolved and Stuf. I learned much. Yes, I spent much too. That said, I may give this app another chance. I'm very jaded when it comes to clipboard apps, so trust me when I say that this is the best premium clipboard app. I'll probably wait for a promo or after the launch of Lion.

When I reviewed version 2.3 I said: "I'm giving it a generous 4 stars, but there's quite a bit of room for improvement. This release adds the much needed search function. With that said, if this had been a paid upgrade, I would not have upgraded. There's still the 200 item limit. Other pasteboard applications have truly unlimited pasteboards and I like to have 500 items. Clip Archives are not truly independent, and only one can be used at a time in addition to the Clip History. Other applications allow the use of multiple clipboards simultaneously. CopyPaste is the first clipboard application I ever used, before OS X. I bought it during a promo hopeful that it would improve, but now at version 3 it still lacks features that are present in Keyboard Maestro, PTH Pasteboard, etc.

I've been using Copy Paste Pro for a long time. I am current with v 2.3.3. It works fairly well, but has always been a bit buggy. At the moment I can get the archive locking system to work. I can lock the archives, but when I switch to another and then go back to the previous archive it becomes unlock. This is very frustrating.

CopyPaste was one of the first great clipboard managers, but sadly they have been overtaken by several others. "Clips" is my personal favorite. I can't begin to explain how its changed my life! CopyPaste has some nice options, but even with it's menuitem selection there is still too much to remember in order to use it effectively. Clips keeps my clipboards organized and gives me total control over grouping them. I issue a lot of obscure terminal commands. Not only do I not have to look them up anymore, I can select them in an instant and get back to work. Abbreviations are a breeze too.

Sorry CopyPaste, I have moved on to greener pastures, and I now use Keyboard Maestro. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/6265/keyboard-maestro The latest version of CP (2.3.2 as of this writing) caused all my applications to freeze, and a hard restart was the only way to get back to work. I had pretty much accepted the technical problems as a fact of life--crashes, lost clipboards, keyboard shortcuts that stop responding--but the developer has never responded through multiple requests for support through their website, email and forums. That is no way to retain users. If the rating system allowed reviews of support, it would get the lowest possible rating, and instead I included that factor in the overall Main Rating. Keyboard Maestro recently had a sale through: http://www.maczot.com/ and I have found that it does all that I need from CopyPaste, and a lot more. Here is one tip to use named clipboards: http://flip.macrobyte.net/software/keyboardmaestro#mulcb KM has a very active user community where the developer, Peter N. Lewis, participates. His company Stairways Software created Interarchy, which was acquired by Nolobe.

I'm still having problems with Adobe Indesign CS4 - CopyPaste broke the keyboard copy/paste command keys. When I copy and paste in Indesign it creates an uneditable graphic. No problems if you use the menus instead of keyboard. Beware!

You are right about the missing features but CP is one of the most stable apps I have used and I used to be a Mac Writer and reviewed utilities and you can take a version of CP that is 8 years old and it will still run. Like you I have used CP before OS X with great results and as far as the 200 limitation is concerned, I have yet to ever store that much info on a clip. Also, CP works with a free fully functionally word processor add on called Bean that that is free and you can bring up if you need to edit your clip or create a clip and can be saved a a Word, RTF Doc or just another clip. I have also been able to export all my clipboards when CP would go through major evolutions. I would say that makes CP a bit more that just a clip board saver. It may be be missing some things, don;t most apps miss something in their product no matter how good they are? End of Line... I am a Freelance Writer for well over 25 years and is currently between jobs due to the recession. I was also a Secondary Science teacher for 20 years A Macintosh Tech and Lead Mac Sales At CompUSA I also did monthly seminars on Entertainment and Utilities as a Special Interest Group Leader for the Houston Area Apple User Group and Contributing Editor and Writer to the Groups monthly magazine The Apple Barrel for over 20 years.

I first used it over a decade ago, and only recently bought the OS X version. -It limits the clip history to 200 items. Keyboard Maestro and PTH Pasteboard don't have this limit. -It lacks a search function. This is essential IMO, and is present in other similar utilities. -All clip archives share the same Clip Palette. This is a bit inconvenient. Since I often need text from different archives, I prefer PTH Pasteboard's approach of having an unlimited number of clipboards at the same time. CopyPaste offers only 2 (Archive and History) at the same time. I'm giving it a generous 4 stars, but there's quite a bit of room for improvement.

CopyPaste- in my view- recently took a step backwards. First, the pros: I use it because I like the Clip Archive feature. This is very powerful and worth the price of admission for me. Does keep an accurate history of all clips used. And, it is easy to access for those who like the graphical interface- which is elegant. For those who don't mind an interface which lends itself better to keyboard interface- I would go with PTHPasteboard Pro. I don't find the interface as polished as CopyPaste- and the Clip Archive feature is a little harder to use- in my opinion. Now, why do I feel that it has taken a step backwards. Because, now text manipulation and management of clips must take place within an external- free word processor- Bean. Which means- all of the text tool services that used to be provided within CopyPaste itself- must be accessed through the additional step of opening up Bean. It may aid in the stability of CopyPaste- but, I dislike the additional steps of having to open Bean- and, then figure out how to manipulate the text in the way I want using it's functionality. Prior to this change- CopyPaste allowed you to use ClipTools within it's own interface- which seemed quicker and easier- to me. I have always found the CopyPaste way of doing things a bit obtuse. The manual is online- with no PDF version. That means that it is more difficult to search and find the answers you want (and, yes, I know you can use search and find through the web browser- just not nearly as powerful as PDF searching). Once you figure out how to get it do what you want- it's o.k. Just not the most intuitive app- IMHO. For example, it took me over 30 minutes to figure out how to delete a clip from a clip archive. In the manual, it said you just had to press the delete key. A no go on my system. I finally figured out you had to preview the clip- which then offered a delete button. Cumbersome. And, in fact, the easiest solution- dragging the clip from the palette- which should work in my opinion- doesn't. So, why do I use CopyPaste. I like the graphical interface. I like the archive palettes. It does allow, with effort, to edit your clips. And, once I figured it out- I could incorporate it into my work flow. One last thing- if you are buying this clip board app because you want to use it extensively to clean and manipulate your clip's text- then you may be doing yourself a disservice. I look at CopyPaste as providing superior access to Clip History and Clip Archives using convenient graphical interfaces. If you need to do a lot of text cleaning and manipulation- you are better served by using the highly recommended TextSoap. For me- CopyPaste provides an excellent historical data base for my clips. If I want to change this text- I use TextSoap. Oh, yes. I forgot to mention. I think this App- a one trick pony that performs fairly well- is, seriously overpriced. I only bought it because I was able to get it during a half-price MacUpdate Promo ($15)- thanks MacUpdate! Otherwise, I would not spring the money for this app. I would still be using one of the free alternatives I have collected. Not happily. But, I try not to overpay for software. That's my opinion of course. Your mileage may vary!

I have been using CopyPaste since OS9 - this is simply an essential for the Mac. CopyPaste should be standard on all Macs. Imagine only 1 copy and one paste at a time. Impossible for me to use my Mac without CopyPaste. I have about 20 standard "pastes" in the archive which I use daily - and the History collects 100 pastes during the day - from key words to photos to entire paragraphs or documents. This is a comprehensive multi-copy paste program. The ARCHIVES is a key feature that makes CopyPaste so valuable. Plus you get fast, reliable, full personal tech support - the latest version 2.2.6 includes one modification I requested just a few days ago! An essential tool - once you have CopyPaste you will never go back to a Mac without it! (I install it on Macs at the Apple Stores before I try them out - otherwise, it's not a Mac for me!!)

I too have used and loved CopyPaste since before OS-9. But using it under Leopard and causes the menu bar to become dissociated from the running application (I'm working in Application-A but the menu bar for Application-B is showing) or I just can't access any menu bar items. The problem may involve more than CopyPaste Pro but I can't find any way to get my menu functionality back except by uninstalling CopyPaste Pro. So, I'm reluctantly trying out other clipboard utilities. If anyone knows how to resolve this problem, please, please tell me.

Does anybody else feel that CopyPaste is slow to catch a "⌘C" when doing a quick keystroke? I find that it misses copies that are usually caught if the program is not running -- this has led me not to use the program anymore. Perhaps there is some setting within the preferences that I am not aware of, that will help change the speed/sensitivity of the keystroke capture? Thanks

Seems to be one step forward and two backward with this app. None of the new prefs work in this version and initially the floating icons disappeared. Also, the developer is never the quickest to respond to emails. Issues I have had with this clipboard in the past were dismissed for weeks by the developer before finally agreeing there was a problem. I'm going back to the previous version of CopyPaste Pro and intend to try out the free ClipMenu.

CopyPaste Pro used to be great, but lately it's been very unstable for me. It's prone to frequent crashes that seem to occur most often when I'm accessing the clip browser. The real problem is that after the crash, all clipboard history since the last time the app was quit is lost. I'd love to wait around for this to be fixed, but the constant risk of losing all of my clips at any moment is more than I can live with. I'm currently looking at alternatives to CopyPaste. PTHPasteboard Pro seems to be the only one with comparably advanced functionality.

I've posted before about CopyPaste Pro not saving clips copied before restarts when "save clips when quitting" is checked in preferences. I have found that the only way to be sure that all clips are remembered in history is to quit CopyPaste Pro before restart. Here is part of a reply I received from the developer July 3 2009: "i thought before i check in with peter again on that that i would check again to see if it occurs and strangely enough it i did. so you are correct there is a problem with the history not remembering items copied before a restart. i will let peter know and he will get back to us shortly."
