Yay! It's back! I've always wondered why it was never included in their OS. Why limit to 1 clipboard that disappears when you re-boot? Great additions now and bug free as far as I can tell. I've had an Apple since the Apple II. Kudos!

CopyPaste Pro has been my essential utility for at least a decade. I know it's not the only multiple clipboard utility out there but it's mine. As far as I'm concerned it's part of the operating system.

Aargh! Still wreaks havoc when you try to copy and paste with Numbers in Mavericks! Maybe other apps too?

I really want it to work because I don't know of another clipboard handler which has the great command-c-[whatever] to copy some item in the history and command-v-[whatever] to paste one.

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!

Doesn't play nice with OS X Mavericks. The developer says that it does.

Wrote to Plum Amazing software and explained the problem. One week later: still no response.

That;s why their name is Plum Amazing.

same problems here with Mavericks, no answer from the developer. Using normal copy/paste function within Apple Numbers only with mistakes, switch off CopyPastePro and Numbers will function normally

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.

Long time customer giving up and looking for a replacement.
Can't take the worst bug ever anymore.
Fix the "• Unknown •" problem PLEASE!
See my reply below to another user for a detailed description.
If there is any kind of a known conflict or bug that has people pulling their hair out, then the application should be long fixed by now or at least report the conflict back to the user.
A conflict if unlikely as I have spent many hours over the years trying to eliminate other applications and find the problem, and I have had no luck at all.

Bdikkat had trouble on 20 Feb 2011
Trying version 3.0, I copy a chunk of text to an archive slot. Then, when I go to paste it back somewhere (carefully choosing the correct archive, by the way), something else is pasted! Furthermore, I look for the original chunk of text and it's gone! Losing data is the worst thing!

I so want to like this software, because it has one paste function I love: that is to press command-c and a key, like, any key (1, 2, K, L - anything), and then later press command-v [same key] to get it back. That, when it works, is fantastic for my coding workflow. But this "losing data" thing just means I can't trust it and is intensely annoying.

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.

ClipMenu is super and doesn't have this problem. Up to 100 in history with no issues on my computer.

Butler's clipboard is a bit of a pain to configure (confusing preferences) but is the fastest of the lot once you've got it.

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

copypaste is instantaneous. its important to know that you hold down the command key then the moment you hit c the copy is made just like in the mac os.

it may be that you were trying to do both keys at once or the c before the command key. the command key is the key to making the copy.

Robotank had trouble on 06 Nov 2009
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."

No change with version 2.1. Does not remember history after restarts. Part of archives lost after restart. I can't use this software.

A worrying development: When I restart my computer [CopyPaste Pro not in Log-in items], and then manually launch the CopyPaste, most of the clips in the current clipboard disappear. Why? Anyone having the same problem?

this is not the place for tech support so write to us if you need a response.
but....
go to the copypaste preferences and make sure that 'launch copypaste pro at startup' is turned on there. if that is on you need to have it work at startup so check your startup items. delete the copypaste one in there.
if you want it to remember your clips then make sure that is on in the preferences.

Right, this isn't the place for tech support. I wasn't asking for tech support as is clear from the content of the post. I emailed the developer about this around the same time that I posted on macupdate. I haven't kept a copy but the developer replied some weeks later.
