Clipboard Scripts use the clipboard as the basis for the tasks they perform. The clipboard is a part of the Mac OS which holds data when copying and pasting in different applications. When you select text in a document, and choose "Copy" from the "Edit" menu, the text is copied to the clipboard. The AppleScripts that make up "Clipboard Scripts" are built to perform various tasks to text data on the clipboard.
Clipboard Scripts are intended to be triggered from the Apple "Script Menu", which is included with Mac OS X. You may need to "activate" the script menu, if you haven't done so already. This can be done by double clicking on the "Script Menu.menu" item in the "Applications > AppleScript" folder on your Mac OS X computer. Once you have done this, a script icon should appear in your menu bar at the top of the screen.
Scripts used in the scripts menu may be triggered from within any application. You'll notice that a fairly wide range of scripts are installed by default. Clipboard Scripts help to extend that base set by providing additional useful functionality.
If you would like to try Clipboard Scripts before purchase, you may download a "lite" version for free. This package includes the following scripts: "Add Prefix", "Add Suffix", "Convert to Lowercase", "Convert to Uppercase", "Display Length".
The full solution includes the following scripts:
