5 Productive Clipboard Managers
Technology tools do have their limits. No one will become a
master chef simply because they use chef-endorsed saucepans, the finest
ingredients, or have access to sought-after recipes. For example, a
application can make it easier for individuals to keep track of their
daily activities and thoughts, but will the application really bring
order into a chaotic world? Time tracker apps help users keep track of
how much time is spent on various activities during the day, but still
the user has to remember to start them.
Don't get me wrong. There is a real burning passion inside me
for small productivity tools. Lean tools that focus on a single
productivity enhancing activity can make an enormous difference to
the way time is spent. Bloated, complex productivity tools tend to only
slow you down, and complex solutions require too much maintenance.
The applications featured in this article fall into the first
small lean applications that focus on speed and efficiency, cutting
time spent on hunting for snippets of text.
Linux has a number of proficient clipboard managers. This type
of application lets you copy and manage items to your clipboard.
Copying, searching, managing and sharing clips is common functionality
offered by this type of application. Keeping tabs on reusable text
snippets can make a real difference for people who need to swap parcels
of text. Some tools go further supporting and storing pictures and
even synchronizing clippings between computers. We give our strongest
recommendation to CopyQ, a remarkable clipboard manager.
Now, let's explore the 5 clipboard managers at hand. For
each title we have compiled its own portal page, a full description
with an in-depth analysis of its features, a screenshot, together with
relevant resources and reviews.
