Copy Copy Copy

Wouldn't it be great if we could copy more than one set of words at once?

When you place your mouse over the word paste, a list of recently copied words should show up.

       There's a god-awful thing they introduced into the Microsoft office suite that seemed to randomly store your last 4 or 5 copy values - with a little pop-up telling you how clever it was that it was doing that for you (which you had to dismiss each time with a button-click. After a (short) while, you got tired of it telling you how clever it was that it was storing all of these copy values each time, that you eventually figured out how to switch it off)

       Yes but this should not be restricted to one programme and it is not very difficult to avoid that problem.

       This is definitely baked in a less annoying way than what [zen_tom] described - a little freeware utility on my old mac. You could access a "clipboard" of recently copied words via paste-special or a similar command. I seem to recall it worked system-wide... will look up full info later.

       It was called CopyPaste, and it was invaluable

       c't activAid (freeware software package) includes a feature with mutliple clipboards, very helpful, and not annoying with popups
