Clipboard History Switcher

When using the Clipboard history switcher is there a short cut that would allow me paste from the clipboard with plain text into MS Word without having to use manual mouse actions?

Hey Mark,

manual:Clipboard History Switcher [Keyboard Maestro Wiki]

“Hold the Shift key while pressing return or double clicking to paste as plain text.”

Thanks @ccstone both of those solutions require using the mouse to navigate to the clipboard. I was wondering if there was a mouse free way. My goal is to keep my hands the keyboard most of the time.

No they don't.

“Hold the Shift key while pressing return or double clicking to paste as plain text.”

  • Activate the Clipboard History Switcher with a Hotkey Trigger.
  • Make sure the Close after action button is active.

  • Use clipboard number 1 (pre-selected).
  • Or arrow-down to what you want.
  • Or use Find (Cmd-F).

Oh wow. Magic. I think my mistake was around - making sure the Clipboard History Switcher was visible.

Thanks for your patience and help.
