CopyClip 2 can help you manage your clipboard. The tool runs quite unobtrusively from the menu bar, keeping a record of all your clippings. In this regard, it can store not only pieces of text but also other types of elements, such as files, folders and images.
If you are worried the tool may imply a risk to your privacy, it is good to hear that you can stop recording clipboard activity at any time. Besides, you can simply delete specific items from the list. Another possibility is to create a blacklist of applications so that anything copied from within will not be added to the list.
In order to help you find the desired clipping easily, the application lets you pin the most frequently used items so that they are placed on top of the list. Moreover, it comes with a powerful search function, which can even find a text string within copied text. Finally, it is a pity that, unlike other applications with the same purpose, CopyClip 2 does not let you keep multiple lists of clippings.
All in all, CopyClip 2 lets you increase your productivity by allowing you to paste any previous clipping. I must alert you that there are various similar applications out there, which is why it is excellent that you can try this one to see if it works for you.
