Here’s a handy little app to install and then forgot about ’til the day comes when you’ve somehow overwritten your clipboard or possibly lost some work.
“Jumpcut is an application that provides “clipboard buffering” — that is, access to text that you’ve cut or copied, even if you’ve subsequently cut or copied something else. The goal of Jumpcut’s interface is to provide quick, natural, intuitive access to your clipboard’s history.”
Been running it now for 3 months without any problems. It’s come in handy multiple times.
