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.

    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 :)

  • OK, I'll only give you only +9 on that basis. But yeh - be careful with your copypasta folks.

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.

  • 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 Oct 24, 2011 at 9:47

may I add Butler to the lot, http://manytricks.com/butler/

does many more things in fact, but indeed does the multiclip well...


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.

I wrote this one (no installer, just source): http://github.com/sje397/Clint

Very simple, but quite hackable and works on all platforms supported by Qt and you can network it so that you can share the clipboard across multiple computers.
