Description from store 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: NAME TIMESTAMP 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 - : Which generates a string like: NAME Tue Nov 26 3:03:52 GMT -0700 (MST) ** UPDATES ** * Version 1.0 -- Thanksgiving 2013 First release * Version 1.1 -- 12/8/2013 - Manage Extensions screen now shows an icon - Better handling of empty middle js field (user feedback) - Better handling of first install / all options fields undefined (user feedback) - Badge popup is much prettier and has link to options, title (user feedback) - Icon displayed in extensions bar is prettier, has transparent background (user feedback) - Options page updated, prettier, includes actual timestamp in example instead of hardcoded one * Version 1.11-1.13 12/9/13 - Fixed a CSS typo that improves popup badge - CSS improvement for Mac

  • (2017-06-22) Mr. Lance E Sloan: 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.
  • (2016-09-19) Lucas King: 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!
  • (2014-04-07) Alexander Ivanov: 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()
  • (2013-12-09) 華雨: can it load a specified page's variables in it's javascript utils?I think it can be more helpful.
  • (2013-12-05) Craig McDonald: I was once held captive by plutonium-seeking Libyans and this extension single-handedly saved my life. Five stars.
  • (2013-12-05) Logan Sears: I have a tool at work that requires users to sign and date stamp their updates to certain documents. This extension makes an annoying, repetitive task extremely quick and painless. It could use a better UI to better explain what I'm supposed to put in for each field, and maybe a live preview below as I type. But overall it's good and I only needed to set it up once.
