Version History 2021.11.1 (3788)

- You can now set a system-wide keyboard shortcut to trigger PopClip to appear.
- Option to automatically set the dark/light appearance of the PopClip bar to match the system.
- Made the "small" popup size a little more compact.
- Improved compatibility with Electron-based apps such as Discord and VS Code.
- And bug fixes, of course.

If PopClip releases had code-names, this one would be called "Iceberg" because there's not much to see on the surface, but there's a lot going on underneath. This release also includes big improvements to the system for creating your own extensions, including running Shortcuts on macOS Monterey. Look out for documentation coming soon to the PopClip Extensions GitHub repo, as well as how-to guides on the new PopClip forum at https://forum.popclip.app/ — to which, having read to the bottom of the release notes, *you* are specially invited. -Nick


PopClip appears when you select text with your mouse on your Mac. Instantly access context-specific actions including copy and paste, plus extensions like Send to Evernote. If you select text containing a URL, email address or file path, PopClip can open it. Select a misspelled word, and PopClip offers corrections. Select any text to do a web search with those terms, or select a single word to get the dictionary definition.

More than 100 free extensions are available, including Paste and Match Style, Translate, Send to Evernote, Word Count, Capitalize and much, much more. See http://pilotmoon.com/popclip/extensions.
