Guides on emulating older applications

Jumpcut is an application that provides "clipboard buffering" - that is, access to text that you've cut or copied, even if you've subsequently cut or copied something else. The goal of Jumpcut's interface is to provide quick, natural, intuitive access to your clipboard's history.

Using Jumpcut

Jumpcut is designed to be simple. Download the application, double-click the .tgz file to open it, and drag the application (the one with the pretty scissors icon) to your Applications directory. Launch Jumpcut. A scissors icon will appear in your menu bar. Now whenever you cut or copy a text item, it'll be added to the "stack" of clippings that Jumpcut has recorded. Clippings can be accessed in one of two ways:

  • Under the menu bar
    Choose a clipping from the Jumpcut menu.
  • Through a pop-up bezel
    In any application into which you want to paste an item from Jumpcut's stack, press the hotkey to activate Jumpcut's bezel. (The default value for this hotkey is Control-Option-V.) A little window like the one you see when using the application switcher or the brightness controls will appear. While holding the modifier keys (for the default hotkey, this is the Control-Option combo), use the arrow keys to scroll through the stack.

Jumpcut remembers the last clipping you selected using the bezel. The next time you bring the bezel up, it will start with that clipping unless it's scrolled off the stack.

Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

The most recent version of Jumpcut requires OS X 10.3.9 or later. If using an earlier version of Mac OS X, Jumpcut version 0.54 may run on Mac OS X 10.1 or later.

Note: The latest versions of Jumpcut uses Sparkle to notify the user of updates. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, then the earlier version 0.54, does not contain this added software (all of the others contain Sparkle software).
