I am looking for an application that stores frequently used text snippets and lets me copy a snippet to the clipboard with a single click.

Bonus would be to allow pasting into the previous window via a button or double-click.

Perhaps Lintalist does what you want. You can store as many texts as you like and search for all snippets incl. additional options to add information to a snippet before it is pasted or stored in the clipboard. At the same time you can use hotkeys and shorthand for often used snippets.

For years now, my clipboard manager has been Ditto

From the website:

  • Easy to use interface
  • Search and paste previous copy entries
  • Keep multiple computer's clipboards in sync
  • Data is encrypted when sent over the network
  • Accessed from tray icon or global hot key
  • Select entry by double click, enter key or drag drop
  • Paste into any window that excepts standard copy/paste entries
  • Display thumbnail of copied images in list
  • Full Unicode support(display foreign characters)
  • UTF-8 support for language files(create language files in any language)

It handles images, text, MS Word & Excel, etc, etc. Lets you decide how many entries to keep, how long for & more, plus, as you require, you can pin snippets which will never be deleted.

Give it a try & let us know what you think. I am off to try Lintalist now.
