I recently started using a new paid system add-on called Pop Clip which saves me tons of time as I work in every application. A little menu appears whenever you select text and gives you access to your top desired actions to perform on that selected text. You just set it up and off you go.
They have over 100 actions you can install to customize your workflow and needs. You can copy & paste, and access actions like search, spelling, dictionary and even post to-dos to your to-do app or Evernote or updates to social media.
I've added some of the typographic changes I'm always making plus connections to Todoist and Evernote and that alone has saved me hours. They connect to a lots of other apps and social media services as well. If you spend just a little time configuring it, you will absolutely save a ton of time and lower your workflow stress.
Note: It does take a little getting used to if you're used to using keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste. It can feel like the interface is getting in your way, but after I accepted the pop-up offers for copy and paste, it actually improved my speed and overall workflow.
It costs $4.99 and is well worth every penny.
Here's a screenshot of the few additions I've added so far to give you an idea:

Got questions about it? Let me know in the comments and I'll be glad to answer.
