Mein File New shortcut Ctrl+N (New document) Workspace Dialog Your recent Items "Clipboard" is not a preset it is a dynamic first enter or not. For if the Clipboard is empty there will be no "Clipboard" item. If you press Print screen theree will be a "clipboard" Item the size of your Display or Displays or active window with a 72DPI resolution. If you copy something with Photoshop Copy(Ctrl+C). Copy Merge(Shift+Ctrl+C), or Cut(Ctrl+X) there will be a "Clipboard" for what you copied into the clipboard at the Document copied from resolution. Yes the Recent Item "Clipboard" changes to what is in the Clipboard. I think this is how "Clipboard" Always worked for me on Windows I do not have a CMD key Like Mac users do. Perhape Mac clipboard in OSX is different.
I get what you're saying about there not being a preset per se.
I'm curious what is the source of your clipboard element where you're given a clipboard resolution of 300ppi? is it from another photoshop file? Illustrator is resolution independent, so I'm curious why items copied from it default to 72dpi and why I can't change that.
I can't remember which version in the past allowed this, it may have been as far back as CS5, but if I opened a new document in Photoshop with an Illustrator item in the clipboard, I could set the dimension to Inches and Resolution to 300ppi, same as I do now, but the difference being, all subsequent new documents would then use 300ppi and Inches as the defaults for Clipboard items... at least until the preferences file got corrupted or was otherwise deleted.
It seems like a petty thing, but because I'm constantly switching between Illustrator and Photoshop, it was super convenient to keyboard cmd + N, then cmd + V and be ready to go. New workflow habits are hard to adapt, and this is just an irritation piled upon other irritations where an "upgrade" either removes a feature or complicates a previously "simple" activity.
AS I wrote The resolution in the Clipboard will be the resolution of the document copied from. I used the same document here for my screen captures I just changed the document Resolution between the firs and second copy. Menu Image Size resample not check and changed the resolution. Not a single pixel is changed added or removed the Document resolution setting is changed so the size of the sides of the print changes. The last two captures in both cases the were 700x500 px one was 100DPI the other 300 DPI. The capture before them I used PrtScn Windows did the Copy to the Clipboard. From Chrome I could Copy HTML Text Highlight and Copy(Crtl+C) or Use Alt+PrtScn and have windows copy chrome window image to the Clipboard. It would be a 72dpi sRGB image in the clipboard. Where If Photoshop Did the copy the color space would be the color space of the document copied from. I do not use other Adobe Applications like AI, Lightroom etc I only use Photoshop what Other Application Copy to the Clipboard is not in my databank. Photoshop can also Copy and Past Text from/to the text tool using the clipboard.
