I would like to copy several different texts/things at the same time and paste them in any order.

Does anyone know any good Mac OS X software or plugin that can handle multiple copy/paste?

Check this: http://jumpcut.sourceforge.net/

Cited from the above:

Jumpcut is an application that provides "clipboard buffering" — that is, access to text that you've cut or copied, even if you've subsequently cut or copied something else. The goal of Jumpcut's interface is to provide quick, natural, intuitive access to your clipboard's history.

+10 if I could. First thing I install on any new system. Once you start using it you won't be able to live without it. –  boehj Jun 13 '11 at 12:36

only beware with a security, for example when you copy&paste your super-secret-password to the dating server - your wife can one click-discover it while you're going for the next beer :) –  jm666 Jun 13 '11 at 13:26
    
OK, I'll only give you only +9 on that basis. But yeh - be careful with your copypasta folks. –  boehj Jun 13 '11 at 13:28
    
Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  daviesgeek Nov 10 '11 at 19:02

Several app launchers also have clipboard history functionality built-in. I personally use LaunchBar, which supports clipboard history for up to 40 items. I previously used Quicksilver before development ceased - though I understand it's now back in development.

+1 for LaunchBar. Clipboard management plus so much more. –  Ian C. Jun 13 '11 at 15:45
    
yes, the development of Quicksilver is active again and shortly there has been released a new version vor OS X 10.6 and 10.7: qsapp.com –  Martin Oct 24 '11 at 9:47

I wrote CmdVees to scratch my own itch. It solves my specific problem with copy/paste. It may fit your needs.

I use ClipMenu to handle multiple clipboards. It's nice, has lots of features and it's free.
