Beta version
Build 3009 (19 Oct 2019)

Changes since 2019.9.1:
  • Roll back some recent changes to PopClip behaviour to avoid interference problems with certain apps (for example graphics and video editors). Please note, this means PopClip may *stop* working in some apps. Please report any compatibility problems using the inbuilt feedback button (envelope icon, in PopClip prefs "about" tab), which will include useful diagnostic information.
  • Add "ClassicBlue" hidden pref (bool) to force blue colour always, independent of macOS setting.
  • Excluded PopClip from appearing in Crossover and VMware Fusion.
  • Fixed: Duplicate actions sometimes appearing in the PopClip bar. [reverts bug introduced in 2019.9]
  • Fixed: Paste appearing when dragging, but not selecting text. [reverts bug introduced in 2019.9.1]
  • Compatibility: Prevented PopClip appearing in Parallels Desktop, including Coherence apps.

Download (zip file)

Beta installation: There are two options when trying a beta. Option 1 (recommended) is to delete your existing version from /Applications and put the beta version in place. It will then  receive updates to all future beta versions if you turn on "Check for Updates".  Option 2 is to  simply run the beta temporarily from your Downloads directory, for example. In both cases, your existing settings and extensions will be preserved.
