    Snippets Manager

    Anyone know of a snippets manager that does not overwrite what's in the clipboard when a snippet is pasted.

    Don't say it can't be done, I have one, but its old, no longer available and its license key is based on my ethernet MAC address.

    Basically I want to copy a link to an Evernote link to the clipboard, go to an editor paste some boilerplate HTML from a snippets library and then paste the link I got from from evernote within the HTML I just pasted.

    I must have tried a dozen today and they all clobber what's currently in the clipboard. and/or you need a PhD in clipboard managers, and/or they have too many bells and whistles - one of them did slide shows! Preferably free, and not definitely overburdened with sophisticated or programmer oriented features.

    I tried these and a few others whose names I forget, they either overwrite the clipboard, or they're overburdened with features and/or cost too much

    I solved my immediate problem (snippets for a colleague) by solving the business problem using a different approach.

    But in longer term I still need to find something that does what Shelltoys does for myself.
