iClip 5.2.5


iClip is the premier multiple-clipboard and scrapbook tool that enables you to keep a history of almost anything you copy, instead of only the last thing.

iClip was designed to be accessed as simply as the Mac’s Dock: just move your cursor to the side of the screen and iClip pops out for instant use.

  • Get things into and out of iClip with hotkeys, drag-and-drop, or just 1-click.
  • Organize your stored clips into multiple sets and have them ready to paste in an instant.
  • Imagine having common email replies, logos and signatures, code-snippets, and more just a single click or keyboard shortcut away!

  • FIXED: No more flicker when dragging over a clipping over a bin or the [+] button.
  • FIXED: Multi-Item text clippings show text of all items in Preview.
  • FIXED: Clips from the app InShort now show a preview instead of just a "?".
  • FIXED: Using the Copy command in an application, then quickly switching to another app, won't switch back to the previous app any more.

  • NEW: Hot Click "Show/hide name overlay".
  • NEW: Items can be added to existing clippings in bins by holding down the Option (alt) key during dragging. Works only with text and file aliases, not with images and other types (sadly, most other apps do not properly check for the possibility of multiple items in the clipboard, hence this restriction).

  • NEW: New hidden pref for overriding the background color of Popup Preview windows and the transparency of Styled and HTML previews ("Popup Preview bg color", "Popup Preview bg opaque", optionally followed by either " Web clipping" or " Styled text clipping").
  • NEW: The Clip Set selection popup button can now have an up/down button next to it. To enable it, choose the Slim skin and set the Prefs key "clipSetsPopupMenuType override" to 2, e.g. with these Terminal.app commands:
    • defaults write com.irradiatedsoftware.iClip "clipSetsPopupMenuType override" 2
