Dealing with formatted Text in NSPasteboard

Hello
I have released my first little utility in the Mac App Store (smartReact), one of the functionalities is a clipboard manager (history)… but currently only capable of handle plain text, no formatted text.

Is there any good documentation on how to handle formatted text in NSPasteboard? What I am looking for are things like copy text e.g. from a Pages document and paste it into another, maintaining the format.

Haven’t found too much on the topic so far… would be grateful for any directions.

thx

Hi @dpiol,
You are currently using the string type, what you need to use is a custom type or HTML type. The other options available can be found in the documentation at https://developer.apple.com/documentation/appkit/nspasteboard/pasteboardtype/1527185-string

cheers,

gr8! thanks for the help.
