How about an option to make pasting from JumpCut a "pop" operation, so that one could e.g. copy five things from one place and then paste them in succession (LIFO order) in another?

This could be controlled by a modifier key, or an alternate invocation key, or a preference setting.

    Don't you think that that is too complicated? If I wanted to do that, I would paste all five into a
    new document and drag from that. Surely paste means to insert the clipboard contents into the current
    document (usually replacing any selection) without altering the clipboard.

    You are altering the clipboard.

    I've been looking for a feature like this too. It's starting to be added to commercial copy buffers.

    It could be set up as a separate keystroke, so you could choose to use it if you want or use the standard paste if you don't want to pop an item off the copy buffer.

    Anyway, I hope this idea is given another look.
