With Alfred's Clipboard History, you don't need to worry about losing bits of text you've copied but forgot to paste earlier. You can also save your most-used text snippets to paste with a keyword or hotkey. If you're feeling fancy, you can also merge selected text to your existing clipboard content.
IMPORTANT: Before you can start using the Clipboard History feature, you need to enable it by going to the Preferences panel, under Features > Clipboard. By default the Clipboard is disabled for privacy reasons.
Activate the Clipboard History by checking the box and choosing from the dropdown menu how long you want Alfred to remember your clips for.
You can customise the hotkey and keywords used to show the Clipboard History viewer.
You can clear your entire clipboard history by typing "clear" in Alfred's main search box and choosing whether you want to erase the last 5 minutes, 15 minutes or all of Alfred's history.
Set the applications you want Alfred to ignore by dragging them into the Ignore Apps box. As a result, Alfred will not add any text copied in these apps into your history.
Use Alfred's Snippets to save your most commonly used bits of text; addresses, directions to your office, frequently used code snippets, etc.
Under the Features > Clipboard > Snippets preferences, you can create new snippets with a keyword and a description.
To add a snippet, click the + button in the bottom right of the Snippets preferences.

When Merging is active in your Powerpack preferences (under Features > Clipboard > Merging), hold Cmd and double-tap C (Cmd + C + C) quickly to append the currently selected clipboard item to the previously copied text in Clipboard History.
You'll hear the OS X "Purr" sound to confirm the item has been successfully appended.
