Paste Master
Version 12.0

Runs on 10.5+

Paste Master is an easy to use clipboard manager configured by a preference pane that allows you to save multiple clipboards and be able to paste them again later. It has the following advantages:

Paste Master allows you to display up to 99 clipboards (per set) in a compact manner, making it easy to quickly find which one you want to paste again. Paste Master recognizes certain types of text much like Apple's Data Detectors, and allows you to paste or operate on them in special ways. This feature is very useful when dealing with web or database forms that force you to type things like addresses, phone numbers or social security numbers in separate fields, or force you to enter phone numbers with just decimal digits. Furthermore, you can paste clipboards as unformatted text even if they are formatted. This is useful if you want pasted text to inherit the formatting of the application you are pasting into.



Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I install Paste Master?

A: ALWAYS make sure that System Preferences is not open when you install. To install, just double-click Paste Master.prefPane. You will be given the option to install for all users or just the current one. No matter how you install it, it must be configured for each user separately.

Q: Ho do I uninstall Paste Master?

A: To uninstall Paste Master, disable it in the preference pane then remove the preference pane from System Preferences by right-clicking it and selecting "Remove".

Q: I am running 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or later. I cannot get the preference pane to install because it was not downloaded from the app store, and there is a message about an unidentified developer. What do I do now?

A: Just right-click on the preference pane and choose "Open". Then answer the dialog saying you want to open it. This will install the preference pane.

Q: Why do you allow syncing via Dropbox but not via iCloud?

A: iCloud works only with newer Mac OS versions. Dropbox is used in order to be able to support a wider range of Mac OS versions.
