Tutorial Description

All day long on our Macs, we copy and paste information between applications, switching context each time which invites us to become distracted. We have no choice because the Mac system clipboard is reset with every new item we copy. Using a clipboard manager however, you open the door to much more efficient copying and pasting.

This week, Allison shows you Copy'em Paste, a fantastic macOS utility that brings copying and pasting to a whole new level. With it, you can transform text, copy URLs with their titles intact, as well as paste several items sequentially very quickly. Copy'em Paste also gives you tools to keep your favorite clippings at the ready using dedicated lists that help you stay organized. These are just a few of the amazing things you will learn to do easily and intuitively using Copy'em Paste. The full tutorial covers

Just wondering whether Catalina, when it arrives, is going to do a lot of what this app does?

I haven’t heard that Catalina will have any clipboard manager capabilities. Maybe I missed it but I don’t think so.
