What took you so long?
I was simply astounded when I was asked to do a review for Copy Clip! The invitation took me back to a time "pre- CC" when I didn't have the ability to see any history of my clipboard, let alone the power to go back and paste a clipboard item that I copied to the clipboard but have copied 79 items since. No kidding! My copy clip is set to temember the last 80 items I copied to clipboard. It is like I no longer write, create or design in fear of losing stuff. My astoundment stems from my totally forgetting about thse college days when in a matter of seconds, a twety-nine page research paper could be gone with no chance of retrieval all because I copied to clipboard, deleted one graphic from the paper, accidentally copied a second graphic to the clipboard and POOF!! - 29 pages gone forever. I mean if you're readng this and you do not yet have copy clip installled, please do it now. And for those who are thinking, "How stupidi of that guy to not have a back up of those 29 pages!!", consder the following.. I have Copy Clip and you don't! Me stupid? What took YOU so long to finally get here?
Easy to use and so useful
What I hated most was when I forgot to set it to start on login, and I copy and pasted a lot of stuff and wanted to open copy clip and find the first thing I copied. When it's running, I never have to worry that I am copy and pasting between many windows, knowing that I have to repaste the same data multiple times. It's just there when I need it. I work in IT - and we have documented commands that I have to run many times, or input values which are LONG strings and typing them is a pain, and they are in the output from some other command, document, or request from users, and I copy and paste all the times.
I love the fact that it is in the top bar and a drop down list. And that you can customize how many clips you save.
So far, I have not found a down side.
behind ClipMenu app
CopyClip functions fine as a basic clipboard manager BUT it still doesn't work as well as the similar free ClipMenu app which has very useful "Snippets", "Shortcuts" and "Actions" (all very useful but the user doesn't have to bother because they don't complicate the interface or basic usability) plus configuration of almost everything imaginable, from the menu bar icon choice to what types of files may be clipped to the quantity of clipped items stored to subfolders on the menu etc etc. Finally, that amazing little app hasn't been updated since 2014 but still works flawlessly up thru at least Catalina (I haven't upgraded to Big Sur but expect it will continue working well). Because I'm always nervous that ClipMenu will break, I hope this review will motivate CopyClip developers to step up and 'copy' the versatility of ClipMenu because a capable clipboard manager is an essential operating feature for me (and I think anyone that bothers to use it a while will surely then be spoiled). So I've always wondered why Apple doesn't integrate this feature in the mac os??
