The evolution of the clipboard is here. For years the clipboard has been an integral part of the Mac OS, but now shadowClipboard 3 redefines its functionality and takes the clipboard to the next level. With unlimited clipboard sets, clipboard sharing, clipboard filtering and clipboard set backups, suddenly there's so much more you can do with your clipboard.
is the clipboard manager for Mac OS X
that manages multiple clipboards in a convenient, unobtrusive
way. shadowClipboard gives you access to files, pages of texts,
images, pdf documents and all other data you have copied a few
minutes or a week ago.
The power of shadowClipboard lies in its simplicity and straightforwardness.
Rather than placing itself into the Dock - which is rather crowded
on most Macs anyway - it resides in the status menu area of
your Mac OS X system, next to the AirPort, Monitor and Sound
settings and your Menu Bar clock. Or if your status menu is crowded
as well you can opt to access shadowClipboard using fully customizable
hotkey combinations and disable the status item as well.
shadowClipboard works in the backround,
leaving you to worry about the things that matter the most -
your own ones.
shadowClipboard needs absolutely no configuration to run, but it has plenty of
user customizable features to offer. Window visibility, number
of pasteboards to store and the ability to append copied items
to the clipboard's contents, to name just a few. You
can set shadowClipboard to suit your private needs, whether
you want to save the last hundred copies you made or want
to exclude image copies to save precious memory and disk
space is all up to you. You can even customize its status
item if you don't like the one that comes standard. shadowClipboard
is always there when you need it, and never in your way.
Start using shadowClipboard and you may soon start to wonder
how you ever managed to work with the rather limiting option
of Mac OS X's single clipboard. It's the perfect solution for
anyone who does lots of copying and pasting - developers who
work with lots of code, image editing professionals with tons
of images and the occasional home user.
offers two interfaces. Simple Mode is the default, it offers a high contrast interface similar to the Mac OS X application switcher interface. With Simple Mode you can manage your clipboards and sets just as you would in Advanced mode, but only a maximum of 15 items per clipboard sets are displayed this way.
offers a list of copied items and a resizable preview section and you can display up to 100 items per clipboard sets.In
Simple Mode shadowClipboard you can not only paste selected clips,
but paste them as plain text or remove them using a special translucent
overlay button group. Accessing the preferences, removing all clipboards
and quiting is also easily achived thanks to the intuitive buttons
on the left.
shadowClipboard's Advanced Mode uses a special sheet-like interface
that slides down beautifully from underneath the Mac OS X menu bar
and slides out of your way when its not needed anymore.
even offers fully customizable hotkeys that enable you
to tailor shadowClipboard to your needs. Totally reworked since version 2, the new shortcut manager offers a better interface to change your shortcuts to your liking. Say you want to paste
the first Clipboard of the currently selected clipboard set using F1? Just open up the settings
window and change the corresponding values under the Shortcuts
tab. It's that easy. And for those who need to have shadowClipboard
open for a longer period of time, there is even an option to switch
from sheet mode to window mode and the window can be moved around
the screen at will, and can stay open as long as desired. It can
even stick to screen borders if you want it to.
shadowClipboard lets you have a user definable number
of slots in an unlimited number of clipboard sets that can hold anything you might want to copy - from
files and folders through images or your whole life's story in rich
text format - with
the first copied item falling off the list after the specified
number was reached. You can of course create your own customized sets that hold your items for as long as you want. This
way shadowClipboard doubles as a clipboard manager and a
scrapbook - an
application that was lost to the Mac OS 9 era.
Are you working in an office environment
or do you have more than one Mac at home? Have you ever wished
you could copy an URL from a web browser on one Mac and paste
into an e-mail on another? shadowClipboard makes it possible*.
You can easily switch to the Shared Clipboards pane and browse
available shadowClipboard clipboardservers, or turn your own
copy into a server for others to browse your clipboards. No setup
necessary, as shadowClipboard uses Apple's ZeroConf networking
called Rendezvous. shadowClipboard clients will automatically
recognize each other on a local network. It's all as easy as
you have come to expect from a stupidFish program.
||With shadowClipboard, you can

anything else you have copied to the pasteboard in the

the status item or fully customizable key-combos

you to skip images or text to reduce memory and disk

*Clipboard Sharing is only available to Group User licenses
Why does shadowClipboard try to contact a webserver
during startup? It tries to determine if a new version of the
application is available. NO user data is sent over the internet.
