  1. I have a hack that is almost working. I'm using BetterTouchTool to make a new key-shortcut that does 3 actions. Run terminal command: sqlite3 /Users/Ben/Library/Application\ Support/Alfred\ 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb 'SELECT item FROM clipboard ORDER BY ts DESC LIMIT 1;' | pbcopy Trigger: ⌘V Run terminal command: sqlite3 /Users/Ben/Library/Application\ Support/Alfred\ 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb 'DELETE FROM clipboard ORDER BY ts DESC LIMIT 2;' This reads the most recent item from Alfred's database and copies it to the system clipboard. This has the side effect of adding
  2. hmijail, you have it exactly right. I'm not sure why I didn't think to call it a LIFO/stack (I'm a computer scientist). I would also be happy with some sort of pointer into the stack that pastes and moves down on ⌥⌘V and resets to the top of the stack on ⌘V. Alfred stores the clipboard at ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/Databases/clipboard.alfdb perhaps I can write a script (later™) that could edit the SQLite3 database to pop the object off the "stack".
  3. Agreed, along with searchability it makes Alfred a joy to use (except when it minimizes my pop-over window by stealing focus. I'd love if I was able to pull the first item in the stack with one keybind then the next then the next (maybe up to 5 or 9 deep?) if that would be easier than rearranging the stack.
  4. Hey Forum, I use Alfred's clipboard manager ~100 times per day, often in a terminal window. However I am using iTerm2's hotkey (⌥<Space>) window which opens the terminal as an overlay. Unfortunately, triggering the clipboard manager (⌥⌘C) causes the hotkey window to close. Thus, in order to paste several entries I paste one into the terminal then paste the next one into another application effectively moving it to the top of the clipboard stack and repeat. It would be excellent if it was possible to do one of the following: shuffle the clipboard (make the ne
