Plain Clip

Version: 2.4.1 || Release Date: 2010-11-30 || License: Freeware Developer: Carsten Bluem | App Owner: davy

Plain Clip is a small application that removes formatting from text which is on the clipboard. It's designed as a faceless application (no GUI), which makes it ideal for triggering it from a hotkey and launcher applications such as Spark, iKey, LaunchBar, QuickSilver or Butler.

I recommend ClipMenu as it gives you plain text pasting plus as many clipboards saved as you like.

You can give ClipMenu hotkeys as well.

ok: how do you bind a keystroke in Quicksilver? Do you mean you give it a trigger?

I've been using Plain Clip for a long while - it's one of those great utilities that you set up, rely on, and then forget that they are even there. It went away when I upgraded to Leopard and it took me forever to track this great little app back down (but I'm glad that I did!). I bind it to command-option-v in Quicksilver.

I used to paste and cut text through a "text stripping buffer" in Notational Velocity. I now have Plain Clip bound to a hotkey via QuickSilver to accomplish the same thing, and it's been working pretty well so far.
