    Felt like I've searched forever on this one, anyone know of a application that will simply paste text via a hotkey? (NOT Type text). This would be extremely helpful.

    Specific text or whatever is currently in the clipboard?

    Autohotkey is good for this task. There is a tool called Texter that is very good for pasting text. Great for automating things like image and URL tags in forums, for example.

    *(oops, I looked at Texter again, it uses hotstrings, not keys)

    Many clipboard programs can do some hotkeys also, such as ClipX and Ditto. There is another program I know of, but I can't remember the name of it right now. :mad:

    HotKeyz might be what you're looking for. If you need to fill forms though, you may need something like Roboform.

    *The program I couldn't remember before is called PhraseExpress. I can't remember if it uses hotkeys, but I know that it can auto replace text.

    I've been using PureText forever now. Does a fantastic job:

    Let's you config the paste hotkey in a variety of ways. I've got mine set to Win+V, as it's like an alternate Control+V

    That seems to work exactly like ClipboardFusion, except ClipboardFusion might have a few extra features. :)
