Review

CopyLess 2 is intended to incorporate new functions to the clipboard built in macOS. Common operations such as cutting and pasting can mean a great saving of time and effort, so any improvement in this sense will undoubtedly increase your productivity. This time, the advantage comes from being able to access a history of your clippings instead of just the last copied items.

Using this tool does not involve a steep learning curve. In fact, its initial configuration is done through a wizard, which allows you to decide what the application will look like, as well as how to synchronize and store the copied data. It is also possible to define which keyboard shortcuts you want to use; however, it is advisable to keep the same ones used in the system to avoid unnecessary memorization.

The application's interface is simple: it mainly displays a list of the items available in the clipboard. Fortunately, it is also possible to keep a history of almost any type of copied material, including text, images and code. One of the best ways to insert one of the copied items is to drag and drop it exactly on the target location.

It is very convenient to allow previewing their contents before you decide to copy one of them. In this regard, it is even possible to label the clippings for easy identification. Another solution allows you to keep your favorite elements at hand by marking them as favorites. Finally, you can choose to use the search tool or apply filters based on properties. more
