Update: I somehow completely overlooked that this extension already exists (see Append on the main extensions page.) The differences are minor, though mine does account for some additional (rare) character encoding issues. Nothing you should swap out for if you’re already using Append.
I need to spend more time searching before I decide to solve problems. And sleeping. More sleeping.
This is another quick extension for PopClip that I think is very useful. It appends the selection to the clipboard instead of overwriting it when you copy, letting you progressively build the contents of the clipboard.
I use the C-C trick in LaunchBar all the time. You knew that was there, right? This just lets me do the same thing from PopClip. Note that it works for plain text only. It will convert the contents of your clipboard and the selected text to plain text when it runs, stripping any rich text styling, so don’t be fancy1.
Package updated with the new extension, and all source is available on GitHub.

If you wanted to, though, you could build something similar in AppleScript that maintained the RTF formatting, or play long enough with
pbcopy -Prefer rtfto make it work.↩
