Transfer clipboard contents from one Mac to another
Authored by: gregraven on Oct 08, '09 05:05:02PM

I use what is -- for me -- an even simpler method. I have BBEdit on my home machine, and TextWrangler on my remote machines. I open the text file locally in BBEdit, and establish a VNC connection with the remote machine. I then open a remote text file in TextWrangler. I highlight the text in the local file (in BBEdit), select the VNC/Screen Sharing window, and then drag-n-drop the text from the BBEdit window on my local machine into the TextWrangler window on the remote machine. It may sound to be a lot of steps, but often I'm doing "cut and try" cgi scripts, so I have to repeat this process over and over until everything is just so. Sending e-mails or waiting for a PTHPasteboard (which I love) to update seems to take longer.
