What is "File List" in the Clipboard History?

Recommended Posts

i've just noticed "Keep File Lists" in the Clibpboard History preferences.

I can't find what those are or how they are used.


Please blow my mind and supercharge my productivity with this seemingly simple piece of information.

@iJemz With that checkbox ticked in the Clipboard History, select a file on your Desktop and do Cmd + C. You'll see that there's a file reference saved in the Clipboard.


Next, open an email or message, etc... and select the file reference in question from your Clipboard Viewer - The file will be pasted there.


Alfred doesn't save the file itself for efficiency reasons, but saves a file reference that you can use to paste the file somewhere else.


Hope this helps :)
