ClipList is a menu bar item which facilitates managing multiple clipboard text items by storing clipboard contents in a list displayed as menu items. Menu item titles are set to the clipboard content (or part of it when it is too long.)
Selecting a menu item restores the saved clipboard text associated with that item to the clipboard, and pastes it into the frontmost app. Add clipboard text items to the list by selecting the "Save Clipboard" menu item. (The current clipboard text, or part of it, is displayed directly below this item.)
You can also add items using a service item called "Save to ClipList." To do this simply select the menu item from the Services menu of the current app.
Remove a specific item by selecting "Remove" from its submenu. You can also append the items contents to the clipboard by selecting "Append to Clipboard" from its submenu. Remove all the clipboard items by selecting the "Remove All Items" menu item.
The clipboard items are saved when the program is quit, and restored when it is launched. In addition you can choose the "Save Items..." menu item to save the clipboard list to a disk file. You can subsequently reload the clipboard items by selecting the "Open Items..." menu item. In this way you can keep repositories of clipboard items for future retrieval.
Put the application into your login items if you want it to launch automatically whenever you log in. Go to System Preferences "Accounts" and then click the "Login Items" pane. Then simply drag ClipList into the list.

- Clips can now be added to the menu list using a service item lablled "Save to ClipList." After launching ClipList you may need to open Services preferences (in the Keyboard preferences of System Preferences) and select this option. The program "pings" after the item is entered into the menu items.
- The app supports a new 512x512 icon.
