Script Software has released a new beta of CopyPaste X, a multiple clipboard editing and display utility.
CopyPaste X beta 5 analyses the current keyboard layout to detect the position of the x, c, v keys — this allows Dvorak keyboard users to use CopyPaste X. The clipboard utility now numbers clips in menus and palettes; a collapsed Palette now can be moved around by clicking in the window titlebar; and it can also be closed without previously expanding — and it expands only if the mouse is over the icon.
As of CopyPaste-X beta 5, the preferences now can be opened via key commands. The Dock menu now provides the editor tool in any application and lets you open any clipboard in the editor even when the palettes are hidden.
The new ParagraphMaker is a tool to clean text that comes via e-mail or other sources. Also new is Paragraph Numbering (which puts the paragraph number to the beginning of each paragraph) and Remove Styles (which allows you to convert a clipboard to plain text). Finally, as of CopyPaste X beta 5, the utility now comes with a contextual menu plug-in that gives you access to many of its features via the standard contextual menu.
The current (non-beta) versions of CopyPaste are CopyPaste Classic 4.5 (for System 8.1-9.2) and CopyPaste X 1.4 (for Mac OS X). Both cost US$20.
