Take a look at Clippy (freeware)
Offers the kind of configuration I'd like CH+S to have.

Thanks for the tip rjbull and thanks Mouser for putting default preset in list of To Dos
Clippy theorectically does exactly what I was looking for.
I said theorectically because not all the options seem to work consistently. In particular, delete from column does not seem to work consistently.
It is supposed to allow you to truncate.
I was looking to use clippy to strip off non text characters and limit the amount of text I cut from a web page so I can paste it into descript.ion fields in Directory Opus. The descript.ion field has a limit of I think 402 characters.
I would use this Descript.ion field to describe a file I download off the internet so that the next time I look at the file, like maybe six months later, I don't have to wonder what and where did I get it from.
I use Copy URL + extension for Firefox to cut the details as well as URL from the download page.
Clippy, or Clipboard Help+Spell (when Mouser updates it) will work nicely with Copy URL+ extension and Descript.ion field (in Dopus) as a great team.
