Copy & Paste buffer

Why be only limited to have a single item in your Copy & Paste buffer?! There are several tools out there that can do this, but my favorite (on the mac at least) is Butler.


  • Open Butler
  • On the bottom left of the app, click the +
  • Select Smart Items -> Pasteboards -> Recent Pasteboards: Window
  • Select the newly added “Recent Pasteboards: Window” line from the Hidden Items section
  • Specify your shortcut (I use Command-Shift-V).

See all of this in the screenshot:

And when you hit that keyboard shortcut, it should popup a window that looks something like this:

Recent Pasteboards Window

Note to configure the number of items in the pasteboard:
