I'm looking for an app to manage copy and paste tasks.

What I need is to have shorcuts to the last copied text.

Let's say I copy these 4 lines in 4 times:


Then I'd like to have 4 shortcuts to paste every one of them. Something like:

cmd + 1 (to paste '111111') cmd + 2 (to paste '222222') and so on..

The closed match I found is Clipmenu since it seems that you can use the shortcuts I need (cmd + 1, cmd + 2...) but it doesn't work though

  • Why doesn't Clipmenu work?

  • the shortcut simple doesn't work. If I copy some text and press cmd + 1 I just hear a sound and nothing happens. Should I set some actions in Preferences?

I use FlyCut, you can do Cmd-Shift-V and then cycle through your recently copied texts with arrow keys.
