Kool Tools: SnipEdges for Mac OS X
Do you have frequently used bits of text and images that you need quick access to? Then you need Houdah Software's new SnipEdges, a drag 'n drop snippet manager for Mac OS X Lion.
SnipEdges works with any snippet of text, including email signature, letterhead, commonly used phrases, and more. "Snippets" stick to the edges of the main screen, staying out of the way until you need 'em. You can simply drag 'n drop text, an image or any file to the border of the main screen.
Snippets also work as file/folder templates. You can create "empty" documents by dragging a file snippet to the Finder, and you can ceate folder hierarchies by dragging a folder snippet to the Finder.
Each time you drag a snipped onto the Finder, the referenced original file will be duplicated. This means you create new documents from templates directly from the finder.
This also works for folder structures. You can, for example, set up a specific folder structure for each of your clients, projects. Just create the folder structure once and add it to SnipEdges. Now you can create a new instance of the the folder structure by dragging the snippet to the Finder.
SnipEdges 1.0 is priced at $2.99 (USD) or local equivalent. It's available exclusively from the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
