Con Does not really Clear Clipboard history
Still investigating but even though you clear clipboard history large portions and an as yet to be determined number of previous clipboard actions remain in the same file used to store 'snippets' - namely ~/Library/Application Support/ com.clipy-app.Clipy/default.realm.
Con Can't paste after one action
Can't pase like in ClipX,
- press short cut(cmd+shift+v) --> show some of recent clip items
- select direct one --> paste
