1. Getting Started.

Pastebot is a clipboard manager that stores the last 200 items you copy (editable in the preferences). Create custom pasteboards to organize and permanently store clippings you want to reuse. Use Pastebot’s powerful search to quickly find clippings and modify clippings as you paste with a filter.

Software Requirements

Pastebot runs on OS X El Capitan 10.11 and later.

Getting Around App Sandboxing

When you first run Pastebot, you will need to save a file into the Application Scripts folder in your library to allow the app to work around MacOS’ application sandboxing. If this isn’t done, Pastebot will be unable to store anything you copy from other applications. When the save dialog box pops up, all you have to do is click the “Save Script” button. The window is already set to the correct directory.

Keep Sensitive Data From Getting Saved

You may have applications that use the pasteboard for sensitive data like password managers. Or maybe you copy from certain apps often, but never plan to reuse the data and want to keep Pastebot from storing them. Pastebot allows you to add these applications to a blacklist that Pastebot will ignore. The MacOS Keychain and 1Password are already blacklisted from Pastebot so no sensitive data copied from those apps will be stored by Pastebot. You may add other applications to Pastebot’s Blacklist in the Preferences.

What Pastebot Does While Running

Once Pastebot is running, anything you copy will be stored on the Clipboard. You can recall clippings at any time to paste again or apply a filter before pasting.
