Bricksoftware has released CuteClips 3.1 ( for Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”) and higher. It’s an update of the clipboard history app. The new version offers better support for Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”), better preview for URLs, support for TIFF image data on the clipboard, and a cleaned up preferences window.

CuteClip is designed as a companion to the Mac OS X clipboard. It sits in the background and continuously records changes to the clipboard in order to provide access to them when the user needs it. CuteClips 3 is a complete rewrite with a focus on simplicity, according to the folks at Bricksoftware.

To activate CuteClips 3 the user can either use the the menu item or a hot key, which defaults to Command/Shift-V, the shortcut for pasting but with a pressed shift key. CuteClips can either be controlled by your mouse or keyboard.

To prevent clips from being automatically deleted, the user can make clips sticky or assign shortcuts to them. With these shortcuts the clips can be pasted without even searching for them. The user just needs to activate CuteClips and hit the shortcut key and its clip is pasted instantly. Other features in CuteClips are the ability to paste any clip as plain text, paste multiple clips in a row or paste only parts of a clip.

CuteClips costs US$; a 15-day demo is available for download. Version 3.1 is a free update for registered users of version 3.x.
