I have to read a lot of small pieces of text which come from different sources.

Because of this I would like to have a small tool which allows me to show the text which is currently in clipboard in full screen and with a nice font.

Does anybody has a pointer for such a tool. I would mainly need one for Windows, but also tips for Mac OS X and Linux are welcome.

Is Fullscreen a must or you just want a Clipboard Manager ? –  Lamb Nov 7 '12 at 15:06
I looked at Clipboard Managers, but didn't find one which can show the content (with one shortcut) full screen and nicely formatted. Something like the "Read" features of the Safari Browsers. –  loomi Nov 7 '12 at 15:15
I'm not a safari user so I don't get the formatting thing. But one way might be using Autohotkey to launch notepad or any text editor with a single shortcut, autohotkey can access clipboard text and display it. I think I understood the requirements correctly. –  Lamb Nov 14 '12 at 15:52
Thanks for the proposition, but still not what I am looking for. It should be more like "read without distraction" view for the clipboard. –  loomi Nov 19 '12 at 8:52
