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
Con Adds unnecessary extra step to the copy/paste process
You should be able to select an item from this product's drop-down menu and have the item automatically pasted wherever your cursor happens to be. That’s not what CopyClip does. It makes you select the to-be-pasted item, THEN it makes you (1) switch to the app where your cursor is, and (2) hit command-paste. Sorry, that’s too many steps.
Con Not searchable
Ttores up to 1000 clips but you can't search anything..
