Clipboard Extender for MAC...?

I've just come over from the "dark side" after using PCs for over twenty years. One of the windows-based programs I used almost every day was a clipboard extender (X2Net). Searching this forum, I've a found several mentioned, but the latest post was almost three years ago -- does anyone have a current recommendation for a clipboard extender?

Hi LCSteve, welcome to the world of Macs.

If you're looking for software that will do something specific, like you are, then I'd recommend going to the two primary Mac software download sites and doing a search on each of them. They are:


If you search for the word "clipboard" on those sites, for example, you'll get a plethora of choices, with descriptions, reviews and user ratings, to pick from.

I didn't see CopyPaste listed when I searched VT for "clipboard." It's my longtime favorite. Comes in two version lite and Pro. Lite hasn't been upgraded since 2004.

CopyPaste Pro

Butler has a pasteboard memory that serves well for a simple extension (plus doing a lot of other cool stuff).

I simply use clippings - highlight what you want and drag to a 'clippings' folder in the dock, or onto the desktop or wherever - then drag it back to where you need it, as many times as you want.
