Smart clips let you paste text with extra programmable elements. You can use previously copied clipboard items, ask for input, select from a list, a current or future date and more.
Check out ClipTools: How To Use Smart Clips at YouTube for closed captioning and more options.

Thanks for a very useful app. Appreciate your commitment to education.
I would like to delete a smart clip in clip tools.
Garth: See https://macmost.com/cliptools and all of the commands, including that one, are listed there.
I was looking for the old .txtclipping function. I think it's been deleted. Someone said I could use your app. Is there a way to be these "clippings" in a separate folder somewhere?
Lynda: No, my app stores clips inside it. If you need text clippings, they are still in macOS. Just select some text in TextEdit and drag it to the Finder and it creates a .textClipping file.
I absolutely love clip tools, particularly smart clips! Is there a way to name my smart clips so I can quickly and easily tell what they are?
Aimee: No way to name them, but I may come up with something in the future.
Thanks Gary. Really useful. Is there a way to assign a shortcut to changing case - I need to change phrases into all caps quite often. Thanks.
Chris: Not unless I add a shortcut to that menu item. And I'm running out of good keys. In most apps you can do this with Edit, Transformations, Make Upper Case though, and you can add a keyboard shortcut to that the normal way.
