Flashpaste is a new breed of text copying utilities. The Windows clipboard is sufficient for most computer users but writers, coders, and developers need a more powerful, easily customizable and practical tool. Flashpaste is all that, and more.
Flashpaste has two key features. The first is smart text templates insertion. While writing e-mails or creating documents, people frequently resort to copy & paste boilerplate text to avoid typing the same words phrases, greetings, e-mail addresses and URLs. This is especially true for those who provide customer service via e-mail, because most questions have been asked and answered numerous times before, so boilerplate replies can help. Flashpaste is also a handy tool for web developers or web designers to easily copy and paste repeated strings of HTML code.
How does it work?
With Flashpaste, a user “programs in” frequently used addresses, e-mail text blocks, HTML codes, words, phrases and paragraphs as text templates. Then, the material can be inserted by pressing a hotkey to launch a selection list, and navigating to designated item to insert a particular phrase.
