If copy & paste is a part of your workflow, Pastebot is an indispensible tool to improve your productivity. Quickly recall clippings that you have copied before and apply powerful text filters to format before pasting. You can even queue up multiple copies to paste in sequence. Pastebot is always running and only a keyboard shortcut away to command copy & paste.

Clipboard History:

Pastebot saves everything you copy so that you can quickly recall them in the future. Save and organize frequently-used clippings into custom pasteboards and create keyboard shortcuts to access pasteboards and paste specific clippings.

Powerful Filters:

Build powerful filters with a live preview and apply them as you paste. Create keyboard shortcuts to quickly paste using your filters and export your filters to share with other Pastebot users.

Quick Paste Menu:

Pastebot is there when you need it and invisible when you don’t. Quickly access your clippings from any app and search, preview, or filter clippings before pasting. You can even set the order of clippings to paste in sequence.

iCloud Sync:

With iCloud enabled, your main clipboard, custom pasteboards and filters sync across all of your computers running Pastebot. Your clipboard and filters will be on every mac you work on.

Custom Pasteboards:

Create custom pasteboard groups to organize important clippings you want to save and re-use. Assign keyboard shortcuts to clippings you use most often.

Works with Universal Clipboard:

macOS Sierra’s Universal Clipboard works alongside Pastebot. Copy a clipping in Pastebot and paste it on your iOS device via Universal Clipboard.

Full Screen Support:

Pastebot works in full-screen and split-screen mode. Running in split-screen mode allows you to use Pastebot as a scratch pad.


Choose from various quick paste window styles to suit your preferences, always paste in plain text, enable release-to-paste and more.


There are apps you copy from that you never want stored in Pastebot. Just add that application to the blacklist and Pastebot will ignore it.


Find a clipping quickly with Pastebot’s powerful search capabilities. Search based on content or metadata. You can search by application, date, data type and more.

Keyboard Shortcuts:

Pastebot features many keyboard shortcuts to satisfy any copy & paste maestro. Paste the previous item on the clipboard or paste the current clipping while applying the last used filter.

Continues to be the best clipboard manager

I've use many clipboard manager apps. I've used more advanced automation apps that can also provide clipboard and text filtering functions. I currently have at least 4 other apps that do clipboard management and/or text filtering, but they don't do what Pastebot does with ease or speed, so Pastebot keeps finding a place on my system. Its text filters are easier to use than alternatives. And Sequential Paste lets me copy mulitiple bits of text quickly then paste each one individually (e.g., into individual fields/cells). Or I can just quickly grab one of the last 100 things I copied to the clipboard when I find I need it again. I'm so glad Tapbots has updated Pastebot for years since I find I rely it year after year.

I LOVE pastebot. Does seem to work with Microsoft Office!

I can barely remember what it was like to live without pastebot. I… Somehow got my work done, but I think I was constantly copying and pasting into temporary text files to keep the snippets I needed, and I kept saving things in random files… It was terrible.

Pastebot is one of my favorite things about the Mac, and I’m glad it’s being featured, and having used it, I’d happily buy it again.

I did have some issues with it interacting with Microsoft Office products on the mac (Using Office 365) but I don’t remember exactly what was going wrong. Upong seeing those comments here, I retried, an it worked perfectly. To be clear, I had Pastebot running BEFORE I launched any of the Office products, and that might make a difference. It also might help that I recently restarted.

Best Multi-Clipboard

I have used several multi-clipboards and have generally liked them all. I tried out Pastebot on the strength of Tapbots' Tweetbot app for Twitter (now dead because of Elon Musk). Pastebot is a little more complicated than the other multi-clipboards but I quickly figured out the features I most need. Sequential Paste is great! I also like the ability to create separate pasteboards. Others have this feature but Pastebot was more immediately intuitive.

Finally I was delighted to find that things I've copied on my phone immediatey appear on my Mac. Very useful! Which brings up Pastebot's only shortcoming: They need to add an iOS client. I don't see one. Otherwise I love this app.
