What is Clipboard Inserter?
"Clipboard Inserter" is a user-friendly Chrome extension tailored to streamline your browsing experience. It monitors your system clipboard and auto-inserts its contents onto the active webpage when any changes occur, thus eliminating the need for manual pasting. Users can customize the parent element and tag name for the inserted contents. To access local files, users must adjust the extension's settings to allow file URL access.
This addon, when turned on in a tab monitors your system clipboard and inserts its contents into the page whenever they change. You can customize tag name of the wrapping element, and chose the parent for inserted elements using a css selector in app options.
In order for this extension to work on local files (the file:// protocol) you need to change the "Allow access to file URLs" setting in the extension details.
