Clipboard Extensions

Available in: Actual Window Manager.

Clipboard is an essential system mechanism to interchange various data between applications using the copy-paste approach: select the required piece of data in a source application, use the Copy command to place the selected piece of data into Clipboard, then switch to a target application and use the Paste command to insert the copied piece of data from Clipboard into appropriate place.

Although this approach is quite plain and simple, there remains something to enhance. Actual Tools programs offer the following tools to use Clipboard smarter:

  • Clipboard Templates - collection of frequently used text snippets that can be inserted anywhere when appropriate.

  • Clipboard History - list of data items recently put into Clipboard that can be invoked to paste any of those items again.
