Question Do you use a clipboard manager?


Hi.

Do you use a clipboard manager? If so - which one?

I've only recently decided to try out a few and settled with ClipIt but uninstalled it soon after.

YES!
clipit, carefully set up to sync between primary & secondary upon keypress.
unfortunately it's a bit of a security risk, if passwords get stored. haven't yet found a solution for that.

Maybe not exactly what you mean by "clipboard manager", but I use xsel to integrate my tmux/shell buffers with X-application clipboards. I have in the past also used xclip for the same purpose, but xsel wins for my own uses.

I used a clipboard manager for a short while back in Windows days and abandoned it.

It didn't fit into my extremely linear thought flow.

I use one - CopyQ - but purely as a boilerplate text manager.

It's a board where you put clips and managed it.

Copy and paste repository, something like that.
