Others have suggested Flycut and so will I. It has a setting to ‘Never Save Clippings’ and it does clear them all when you log out.

This doesn’t help with @countermoon’s desire to delete the clipboard history on quit/restart, but for anyone that doesn’t need this and is looking for an excellent clipboard manager, I recommend Pastebot. Well thought out, carries forward all the features I liked in PTHPasteboard (my previous favourite), and has loads more. I particularly use the customisable filters frequently. Like @ace, I like to keep a long clipboard history around, the default for Pastebot is 100 items (enough for me), but that can be increased to 1,000 for those that need more.

Thanks for that @jzw - checked it out, instant purchase.

I had used Butler’s clipboard manager for 10+ years, and then at some time I wanted something that could do more, like …
