Somebody called it brilliant, so I too call it Brilliant ! and very useful. But it consumes quite a bit of memory, around 280mb. GraphicConverter is just above with 380mb. Top of the list. Eugene (developer), can anything be done about this ??

I just discovered this app as I was contemplating ways to simplify my new 13" MacBook Pro desktop. During the last decade, I've been going down from 17" then 15" and now this. I had been using an ancient version of Launchbar for its clipboard history function which still worked. I also use an ancient copy of Yojimbo for notes, but this is much better for the kind of quick notes I jot down during the day. However the ability to put my various desktop items in the Files module is what brought me to the app and implementation is brilliant. Design and operation are both very well thought out, and the developer seems to be keeping current with all the new MacOS software and M1 hardware. It's hard to find excellent software like this any more.

Does far more than most in a clean interface - I use it DAILY and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a solid clipboard manager - it is an ESSENTIAL app for professionals and regular users alike...

Unclutter is brilliant, I have no idea why it took me this long to try it. Notes saves opening my favourite text editor again and again, it’s lightweight and it’s just there, ready to go. I’m using Alfred’s clipboard alongside Unclutter’s clipboard with no problems so far. Unclutter makes it easy to edit clippings. Files has replaced Yoink.

I find it interesting that the developer feels the need to tell everyone how to best use his app. I understand that he would have his preference, but not everyone uses a computer in the same way. If the default way is not convenient for some people, it's not the best way. Kudos that there are other ways to use this.

I have only started using it. I could not manage the default way of opening it for some reason, so I swapped it for the CMD option.

Thanks for a great application!

On reflection, it should be 5 stars!

I've been using it for 6-months and I'm accustomed to having my drawer available for notes. I like keeping useful tidbits there that I know I'll need later. When I discovered I could make multiple notes I started putting useful program shortcuts in different notes there so I can easily reference my list of shortcuts and start to learn them for a variety of different programs. My only complaint is that it the drawer will occasionally drop down when I don't intend it to. There is likely a small change I could make to my preferences to avoid this, but it is now that much of an issue so I haven't investigated it.

Please add way to organize notes into folders, or categories, instead of piling all the notes into one box. I have hundreds of notes, a categorizing system would be fantastic.

Best of class. Was searching/testing apps forever that I didn't have to click to access (wow, lazy, no?). Perfect. Only little thing - it would be nice when a clip is open, if you could delete it from there. If you select the trash button, you get a "clear the clipboard and history" option or "cancel." Do love easy deleting from list view, but again, lazy me wants to delete within that clip. Doesn't totally make sense to have that option within the clipped note anyway ;-) GREAT APP!!

Question: Is it possible to disable the Clipboard feature entirely? This is not a desirable feature a all! This feature is very dangerous because it saves everything you copy, INCLUDING Passwords, right? I am using 1Password to manage my hundreds of passwords. One way for 1Password to work is by temporarily copying the password, and there is a safety feature to remove the password from the clipboard after a set time (like 3minutes)... but with Unclutter, your passwords will be saved in an unsafe structure in parallel with 1Password. This is dangerous! I like the Files and Notes feature, but the clipboard saving is a deal breaker!
