Eternal Storms Software today updated its popular drag and drop Mac app Yoink with several improvements, including clipboard support.

yoink mac app
Mac users can now add the contents of their clipboard to Yoink by opening the app's dropdown menu from the menu bar and clicking "Add from Clipboard." If you copy an image from a website, for example, you can essentially paste it into Yoink and it will appear as a TIFF file that can be dragged and dropped.

Alongside clipboard support, PopClip can now be integrated with Yoink after installing a plugin in the app's advanced preferences.

Yoink 3.4 has improved compatibility with several apps, including Messages and Mail on macOS High Sierra, Parallels, ForkLift, Keka, Horos, and JPEGmini. The update also fixes a bug in macOS High Sierra where performing a dragging gesture would sometimes result in files being selected in Yoink.

Yoink, first released in 2011, is a popular drag and drop helper for Mac. When you drag a file, the app pops open along the edge of the screen as a convenient place to drop the file. Yoink will hold on to the files you drag into it until you drag them out again, freeing up your mouse to navigate more easily.

Yoink 3.1

Yoink 3.4 is available now on the Mac App Store [Direct Link] as a free update for existing users. The app costs $6.99 for new users.

I love it! One of the kings of the Mac App Store! Highly recommended!
I love this app so much!
This is a great example of an app I wish I could try for free before buying. It looks useful, but I'm not sure I'll integrate it into my workflow.
Hadn't heard of it before, but based upon your positive feedback, I'm curious to try this out.

FYI: You need to log out then back in before the new PopClip extension will work. ;)

Yoink would be absolutely useless if Apple adhered to universal standards with CMD+X and CMD+V commands to move files.

But then again, Apple has either the incompetent people working for them if not at least the most stubborn.
It was added in Lion. Cmd+opt+v moves a copied file. Pretty basic.

I knew you could copy/paste files but did not know about the Cmd+opt+v combo.
