Serial Paste allows you to copy multiple elements and then paste them in the same order.
Note: CopyLess Helper plugin is required for Serial Paste to work properly.
Imagine you want to copy 3 text snippets from TextEdit to Mail. The workflow would look like this:
Press ⌥⌘Y to start recording elements
Copy text snippet 1
Copy text snippet 2
Copy text snippet 3
Open Apple Mail
Press ⌥⌘X to paste text snippet 1
Press ⌥⌘X to paste text snippet 2
Press ⌥⌘X to paste text snippet 3
Hint: To add existing elements to the Serial Paste buffer, just Option-Click them in the CopyLess window.
