Forum Question: Scrapbook Subsitute?

Is there anything like the old scrapbook that works with OS 10.8? I have some ‘stuff’ that I use in a number of emails or net ads that I would love to be able to access as quickly as I could back in Scrapbook and desk accessory days?
Thanks,
Ron

    I’m not sure what you mean. “Scrapbook?” Do you mean a way to get at the information in your clipboard? Or to store multiple clipboard items?
    I use two extensions for that, and recommend them both: Jumpcut and ClipMenu. Jumpcut works well and is a simple way to have your last few clipboard text items easily accessed from the menubar. ClipMenu is a little more advanced and also allows you to permanently store items and use images as well as text.

    I think it would be more along the lines of ClipMenu. Remember way back long before OS 10 Mac had desk accessories. Two of them were the clipboard, items there disappeared if you shut down. It also had a scrapbook where you could put things but they did not disappear when you shut down. So, you could keep stuff there that you might use often. An example would be directions to your location to use on Kijiji for people coming to buy your items. I wanted that functionality in Mountain Lion.

    Gary,
    I have just downloaded and tried ClipMenu, I think it is exactly what I was looking for, thanks for this.

    I request that Gary do a short video demonstrating ClipMenu and Jumpcut.

      Actually, looks like I already did one on Jumpcut: http://macmost.com/jumpcut.html

        I have been using ClipMenu and like it so far. However, I have a question. In the preferences, I have checked Launch on Login. However, every time I shut down, ClipMenu disappears from my bar at the top of my Mac and I have to restart it. Is there a trick I am missing that would permit it to remain up there all the time?
        Thanks,
        Ron
