Clipboard history

Unlimited clipboard history items

You can adjust the number of clipboard history items freely, if you have sufficient memory in your Mac. The default value is 20.

Multiple clipboard types

ClipMenu can record clipboard history in the following clipboard types:

  • Plain text
  • Rich Text Format (RTF)
  • Rich Text Format Directory (RTFD)
  • PDF
  • Filenames
  • URL
  • TIFF image
  • PICT image

Show images in the menu

If you record image types to clipboard history, ClipMenu can show pieces of the images in the menu. The image's width and height is adjustable.


ClipMenu can manage re-usable text as snippet. You can select it from menu and paste it anytime.

Access with mouse

When you start ClipMenu, you can see the application icon in the Status bar. You can pull down a menu and select to paste clipboard history items or snippets.

Shortcut keys to pop up menus

You can also pop up menus to select clipboard history and text snippets by pressing particular key combinations. It's very useful for users those who uses larger displays.


When your mouse hovers over a menu item for a second, ClipMenu pops up a tooltip to show full length of text in the clipboard history item. You can see it before pasting it.
