Force Paste.app (macOS)

Little AppleScript application for macOS which allows pasting text even when it’s not allowed (password dialogs etc). It uses virtual keyboard to type in the text from your clipboard. In other words, it tricks the program that asks for your input into thinking that you’re actually typing on your keyboard. See also the blog post with discussion.

DOWNLOAD (ZIP, ≈15KB)

Alternatively, you can install it through Homebrew:

brew cask install force-paste

After installation, make sure to put the app in the Dock. Advanced users familiar with the Scripts menu can put it there to save space in the Dock.

Usage

Copy the text you want to paste, then open the app from the Dock to have it immediately pasted.

How it works

Important note to macOS Mojave users: if you're getting a "not allowed to send keystrokes" error, simply add Force Paste.app to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Accessibility. See issue #7.

Building

cd Force-Paste/
./build.sh
