Default Append text information to clipboard

Is there any way to append text data to clipboard?

I know about the 'clipboard.PutInClipboard' function, but that will replace the current clipboard content. What I'm looking for is to keep the current clipboard data (which can be both text and images), and then append some additional text-only information to its end.

No, but you could output your text string after pasting whatever is in the clipboard.

Indeed, eventually I found a solution that is pretty much in line with your suggestion.

Thank you!
