Make your clipboard more useful with Jumpcut

We're big fans of the system clipboard. Being able to cut and paste between windows and apps may be one of the greatest advances to Western Civilization since the first baker sliced bread. The biggest drawback has always been the fact that you only got one slot to hold what you were clipping. Grab a chunk of text and paste it somewhere else, fine. But grab the second one and the first one goes bye-bye. Not so helpful. Jumpcut is a clipboard buffering tool that makes that problem go away.

Once it's installed, all the stuff you clip is added to a stack of clippings. Now you can run through all the stuff you've grabbed, and then paste an earlier clip into your app. And it's easy to get at those clips: it leaves an icon in your menubar, making it easily accessible, as well as giving you a pop-up window you can bring up with a hotkey, and lets you go from there.

Jumpcut is a free Mac application. It runs under OS X 10.3 or later, and is a Universal Binary, so your shiny new Intel can deal with it as easily as your older PowerPC system. There's also an older version available for earlier OS X versions as well.
