Sublime Text Clipboard Copy/Paste History

This is a little known secret of Sublime Text – the ability to have multiple items in your clipboard history and access them with the keyboard.

To access the clipboard history, simply hit + K, + V – so just add the + K infront of your regular paste shortcut. Windows users swap out with Ctrl.

Watch the video for a quick tutorial on how to use it with your workflow:

    Hey Wes,

    This is a great tip, never heard of this before.
    I’m on Windows and your tip works perfect! 🙂

    Thanks for the tips, but it’s not a really easy shortcut to do with one hand (I can’t reach the ‘K’ easily with my left hand).

    I was ahead to change the ‘K’ key for another one, so I notice there is another shortcut for that ‘⌘’ + ‘alt’ + ‘V’, much easier for me!

    Thanks for this Wes, awesome tip! I bought my Sublime Text license yesterday and your Video and eBook yesterday. I’ve already watched all 20 x videos and have started on the book, I have to say, I’m loving Sublime Text and your videos have probably saved me weeks or months of learning time already. I highly recommend them to anyone working with Sublime Text. Great job. 🙂

    Warmest regards,


  6. Wow! Great tips, Thanks Wes.
