How to find the clipboard? The second-to-last item copied on the clipboard while using Firefox on a Mac?

Asked by zina (1653points) March 12th, 2008

I copied something and went to paste it but accidentally hit apple-C instead of apple-V. So I lost the original material, replacing it with the new little thing I don’t need. Can you back up one step somehow with that memory? Edit – undo didn’t work. Can I open the clipboard? history? etc?

I have a great app for it: shadowClipboard. The only problem is that it records the clipboard only if it’s running. I’m sorry to say that your clipboard-cutting is lost, because it instantly overrides your current clipping.

You might want to try jumpcut out if this happens to you often.

And you are out of luck. What was in the clipboard is gone.
