Flashpaste is a new breed of text copying utility. The Windows
clipboard is enough for most computer users but writers, coders,
and developers need a more powerful, easily customizable and
practical tool. Flashpaste is all that, and more.
Flashpaste has two key features. The first is smart text
insertion. While writing e-mails or creating documents,
people frequently copy and paste the same words, phrases,
greetings, e-mail addresses and URLs. This is especially true for
those who provide technical support via e-mail, because most
questions have already been asked and answered numerous times.
Flashpaste is also a handy tool for web developers and web
designers to easily copy and paste repeated strings of HTML
With Flashpaste, a user "programs in" frequently used
addresses, e-mail text blocks, HTML codes, words, phrases and
paragraphs. Then, the material can be inserted by just
pressing a hotkey to launch a selection list, and choosing the
desired item to insert.
Flashpaste can also be used to create macros, strings that are either
replaced or processed by an application. Using macros, you can
paste current time and date, insert
commands that emulate pressing the
Tab or Enter keys, and more.
Flastpaste also offers a clipboard history. While the
standard Windows clipboard inserts only the last copied text
segment, Flashpaste records all recently copied words, numbers and
phrases, allowing easy reuse. This feature eliminates repeated
copying and pasting, and is tremendously useful for software
developers and writers.
