I’ve just published the registers package. Registers are like named clipboard entries or key/value entries.
A special register named “quick” can be accessed using hotkeys:
cmd-k cmd-c- copy to the quick register
cmd-k cmd-x- cut to the quick register
cmd-k cmd-v- paste from the quick register
Other registers are managed by name using a UI:
Registers : Paste presents the list of registers for pasting at the cursor:
You can save selected text or the current line to a named register using Registers : Copy
Registers are serialized so they are available per-project after restarting Atom.
