A free clipboard manager for 10.5 and up Apps
This hint is simple. There is a new freeware utility called ClipMenu. It's a multi-clipboard manager that you invoke using hotkeys. I have mine set to open on the Command+Control+C key. You can easily set up the option to invoke a paste as plain text using a hot key and mouse click in the preferences. It also supports snippet libraries, as well as a variety of data types on the clipboard. It's a Universal binary.

[crarko adds: It's another addition to the selection of clipboard managers. It looks like it has some useful features. I'll try it out as a complement to PTHPasteboard, which is what I've generally used. By the way, I don't think the submitter is the program's author.]

Well, this utility isn't new. I've been using it for some time. I replaced PTHPasteboard with it some time ago for some reason (I don't remember the details, but I can tell you that ClipMenu is better than it).

+1 ClipMenu has been around for some time...

Enough for me to try it, like it, but eventually go back to QuickSilver (or QSB)'s integrated clipboard management...

Hmm. Now will we all start posting hints for new or updated utilities?

This is not a new piece of software. Like many others, I've been using it for at least a couple years.

I just tried ClipMenu. Thanks for the recommendation. I might keep using it.

I have one problem with it: I can't set the keyboard shortcut to Ctrl-Alt-v. Apparently the Cmd key must be included.

I used to use Butler occasionally, but the pasteboard has gotten wonky in the past few months (not sure how long ago, maybe started when I upgraded to Snow Leopard?). Sometimes, the pasteboard menu won't respond to my keyboard shortcut. Other times, it won't show up even if I click on the pasteboard icon in my menu bar. The icon looks clicked, but the menu never appears.

Today, I noticed, for the first time, that the "Manage Pasteboards" item is missing from Butler's menus. I am pretty sure I saw it there a month ago, same version of Butler.

One problem with ClipMenu is that it interacts badly with TypeIt4Me. All the T4M snippets get added to the clipboard menu. PTHPasteboard doesn't have that problem, and those snippets are not left on the OS X clipboard.

Since I use T4M constantly, this makes ClipMenu much less useful for me, although it looks nice otherwise.
