Snap Type is a handy and easy-to-use clipboard manager that makes it easy for you to access your clipboard history in order to view and reuse copied text.

Simple, clean and reliable clipboard manager for everyday use

Snap Type is designed to stay out of your way and offer the tools required to gain access to your Mac’s clipboard history with just a keystroke.

Consequently, Snap Type runs in the background and enables you to preview and reuse previously copied text with little to no effort from your part.

Thanks to Snap Type’s capability to constantly monitor your Mac’s Clipboard in order to capture all text snippets that you cut or copied, you can easily keep track of the used text and use frequently copied fragments with ease.

Allows you to preview the selected text with or without the text formatting

What is more, Snap Type comes with intuitive keyboard shortcuts for the “Quick Look” and “Peek” features that allow you to preview the selected copied text. While Quick Look helps you view the the content of the selected text, the Peek function enables you to view all invisible characters without the unnecessary text formatting.

It would have been more useful if Snap Type offered its users the option to copy the captured text with and without the text formatting.

On top of that, Snap Type enables you to assign a global hotkey to any of the above functions in order to summon Snap Type’s status bar menu even when other applications are active.

From Snap Type’s stats bar menu you can effortlessly view and scroll through all captured text snippets and transfer the selected text back to your Mac’s clipboard or preview it using the Peek or Quick Look feature.

Take advantage of the powerful search engine and quickly find the text you are looking for

With the help of the built-in search form, Snap Type allows you to instantly find any given text fragment and filter the displayed text as soon as you start typing. In addition, Snap Type seamlessly integrates with Mac OS X’s Notification System and displays notifications when a text is brought back to the pasteboard.

In conclusion, Snap Type is a low-key menu bar application that enables you to instantly access your Mac’s clipboard history and reuse previously copied text.
