Clipboard String Magic helps you get a frequently used string into your clipboard to save you time. You customize the string in options, including optional javascript code (to get real time, time-stamps for example) and then with one click your clipboard is populated.

I created Clipboard String Magic to help me paste a specific String into Rally Software (a web based project management tool). I needed to type:


Many times a day. Now all I have to do is click one button and then paste. It saves me time, and I get more accurate timestamps too.

My values are:

Pre - NAME Mid - MidJS - new Date().toLocaleString() Suf - :

I used this to put the current timestamp for UTC in ISO 8601 format on my clipboard. I used the Javascript: (new Date()).toISOString() Then I set a keyboard shortcut (see the link for this at the bottom of the Chrome Extensions page, chrome://extensions/) to activate this extension. It works well. My only wish for this extension is that it had an option to not show the "Copied to clipboard" message every time I press the shortcut keys.

Perfect! I'm using Chrome's built-in keyboard extension shortcuts to launch CSM which then generates a Javascript timestamp that I can paste into my Workflowy activity log. Can't tell you how long I've been searching for something like this. Many thanks!

How about hotkeys for the app? // Maybe this help anybody Middle Javascript: var d = new Date(); ('0' + d.getDate()).substr(-2) + '.' + ('0' + (d.getMonth() + 1)).substr(-2) + '.' + d.getFullYear() + ' ' + d.getHours() + ':' + d.getMinutes() + ':' + d.getSeconds()
