How do you edit a snippet that's been previously saved in Clipboard, one that's been saved after the highlighter box is done?

Saved some lyrics using Clipboard, but it appears to contain a chunk of highlighted text when the cursor had a lazy eye. Not only that, a social network share button got caught in the mix. Don't want either of these artefacts in the clip.

From the interface it seems that you can bin it or trash the clip and start all over again.

This can't be the only way.

Afraid so, you have to delete it and re-clip it. – codingbadger Nov 14 '11 at 7:33

What you are speaking about is clearly not possible at all, all you can do is place the item properly in clipboard again, there is no editing the clipboard, as that contradicts the very meaning of clipboard.

You realise this is about the web app and not the system memory, right? – Eight Days of Malaise May 4 '12 at 20:23
Ya, even @Barry gave you the same answer in comment long time ago. – user221287 May 5 '12 at 3:57
