    hi, does anyone know if you can cut / copy more than one thing and control which one to paste....? i think windoze has some way of letting you select up to 5 copied texts....

    any help appreciated.

    I don't think you can on OSX (I'd happily be corrected though). I know there's programs out there to increase the funcionality of the clipboard - Versiontracker would be a good place to look. It's definitely something I could possibly get used to though.

    There are a bunch of programs to do this. I remember Copy-Paste from the Classic Mac OS days. and search for copy paste, it turns up about 50 hits of programs that can do what you want.

    iSnip lets you save as many you want (up to 99 I think), and you can even save your favourite clips and access new and old very quickly from the menu bar.
