Have you heard of clipboard managers?

Having a clipboard manager is a wonderful thing.  You have several items to paste onto succeeding profiles, but the standard clipboard only holds one at a time.  Say I am going through a baptismal register.  I want to paste it in as a source on the profiles I am creating - but I also want to paste a warning about the lack of birth certificates in every profile, and a Project Box in every profile.

Enter a clipboard manager.  I use Ditto, but there are loads out there - mostly freeware; choose the one with the bells and whistles you want the most (search for "clipboard manager" without the quotes).  They will hold 10, 25, or even a thousand clips, so all you have to do is keep its little window on top, choose the one you want - and click!  Some will also clip-and-hold images, others will group clips (I'm going to keep all the ones relating to my One Place Study together) - some you can even edit your clip there and then.

It makes creating profiles on WikiTree much easier.  Now you can concentrate on getting it right first time!

Excellent idea Ros. I use one called ClipMenu. It's for MAC. It just saves the last 20 I've used, which I generally find adequate.
Great suggestion, thanks!
Great tip, Ros.  I've neber used one, but I'm definitely going to.  Thanks for posting.

I use free clipboards 2.01. Holds 9 clips and if you forget which one it is

you want, it has a built in viewer. This one is old, but works well. Not been upgraded or updated. No need.

Several others that are free, but have spam inserted in them. MS bought several that you must be using their IE browser.
