Version 4.5.5 appears to be broken in Lion 10.7.0. When copying from some sources, the contents of the clipboard aren't transferred to the main pasteboard. For instance, when copying text from Facebook while using Safari 5.1.

This is confirmed using hotkeys, so it isn't just in the display of the pasteboard.

Relaunching PTHPasteboard will refresh the contents of the main pasteboard to include the previously copied data.

It also doesn't seem possible to create custom pasteboards. They don't appear even when they're set to always be shown.

I've submitted a bug report to the developer.

I absolutely LOVE this application. It has transformed the way I work, making things easier and MUCH faster. Copy-and-paste was a great revolution in computing simplicity. PTH Pasteboard puts this simple function on steroids.

If you're not using this, you SHOULD be! :D

A good friend of mine turned me on to Pth Pasteboard and I couldn't be happier. At first, the idea of multiple pasteboard's didn't seem helpful to me, but after I started using it, I started realizing how frequently I was typing the same text over and over.

Another invaluable feature of Pth Pasteboard is Pasteboard Persistence - copying to your pasteboard becomes the same as saving! Unfortunately my 17" MBP has never been as stable as my trusty old 12" PowerBook was - every few weeks I'll get a crash, but it's amazing how frequently the data that I was so worried about loosing pops up on the pasteboard on the side of my screen!

Once you've been using Pasteboard for a while, you'll also find the text filters to be quite useful - especially for fixing up junk text that you copied from an email and need to forward on. Note, Pasteboard used to look a bit fugly, but the author recently added Anti-Aliasing - blends into the system quite well.

Give it a shot - I think you'll really enjoy this one!

It's really nice to be able to hit command-c and then go to another machine and hit command-v. You have to have the PRO version for this but it's worth it.

I've used PTHPasteboard for years.. it is way more than a utility that allows you to keep track of what you've pasted.. developers can use it to generate accessors, users can set up all kinds of text manipulation filters - like reformat email messages that Yahoo groups garbles up. It is also pretty cool to be able to copy something on one machine (through VNC for instance) and paste it on another.. of course you have to buy the Pro version to get the syncing across machines - but $20 it pretty cheap for something I use everyday.

i thought this was a little bloated/resource intensive for what it was. functional, though. the hotkeys were particularly nice.
