Collective has a powerful search that shows your results in real-time. Looking for a paragraph you copied yesterday that had the work "magic" in it? Simply search it.
Collective remembers the application you copied each item from, and allows you to filter by any of them. Did you copy an address from Safari a few days ago? No problem.
You don't have to copy something to add it to Collective - just drag it in. You can just as easily drag an item out, to paste it. Drag, drop, done.
Collective doesn't just remember the text, it remembers all the formatting that went along with it. Did you copy a paragraph a few bold words in it? Paste it exactly as it was copied.
Did you copy a paragraph littered with formatting, but you want to paste just the text? A
right-click and Add to Clipboard as Plain Text will get you on your way. Or, using the keyboard, simply press
Collective will work with you in full screen mode, popping to the front just as you would expect. Even better, if you a have a second monitor, you can pin it open on that otherwise unused space.
Want a full size preview of an item? Press the space bar. Formatted text, full size images and PDFs - see it all in Quick Look.
Coding and want a monospace font? Prefer Helvetica? Love Comic Sans? It's just a preference away.
Have a retina display? Perfect, Collective is ready for you. Razor-sharp text, retina resolution preview images - this is how you want to see your clipboard.
Collective can be easily "pinned" to remain open in background. Want Collective to always be at hand, running beside what you're working on? Pin it.
When you quit Collective all your copied items are saved; launch Collective again and they are all there waiting for you. Perfect for those pesky computer restarts.
Collective is fully sandboxed, so you know it only does what it says it does: Collective will only save data on your own computer, and will never connect to the internet. Your data is safe with Collective.
Do you like to keep your hands on the keyboard? Collective can be entirely controlled without using your mouse. Press
⌘-Shift-V to show Collective, use
Tab to move between filtering and searching, arrow keys to select an item, and
Enter to add it back to the clipboard - just as you would expect.
Prefer to use your mouse? Have at it! Use the system-wide menu to activate Collective, and simply click any item to add it back to the clipboard.
Collective has Voice Over support with meaningful labels, and allows the display font size to be arbitrarily increased. We want anyone to be able to use Collective.
