Paste Wizard
Version 1.2

Runs on 10.12+

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

Paste Wizard 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 Wizard 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.

Macintosh Requirements

Paste Wizard runs on Mac Os 10.12+.

It is required that the keyboard shortcut on your system to paste is command-v, and that the keyboard shortcut to copy by command-c, the common defaults.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: When I try to run Paste Wizard the system says it is from an unauthorized developer. How can I run the application?
A: After you have moved it to the Applications folder, right-click or control-click it and choose "Open" from the menu that pops up. Then answer the question saying you want to run the application. You need to do this only once.

Q: How does Paste Wizard differ from your earlier application Paste Master?
A: There are 2 main differences:

  1. Paste Wizard is a modern 64-bit application that runs on Mac OS 10.12+, whereas Paste Master is a 32 bit application that ran on Mac OS 10.5+. Mac OS 10.15+ will not run 32 bit applications.
  2. Paste Master was a preference pane that was configured using System Preferences, whereas Paste Wizard is a regular application.

Q: Why do you allow backup and syncing via Dropbox but not via iCloud?
A: Dropbox is used for backwards compatibility with the legacy application Paster Master.

Q: I have already purchased Paste Master, do I have to pay again for Paste Wizard?
A: Because Paste Wizard is a complete re-write of the application and will persist after Apple stops running 32-bit applications, there is a charge to upgrade to Paste Wizard. The upgrade charge is 1/2 price until Apple releases Mac OS10.15, after which time the upgrade offer will expire. Of course, you can continue running Paste Master on systems prior to Mac OS 10.15.
