Clipboard Utility ?

News Reader

Can anyone recommend a good clipboard utility that is easy to use and
works fine?

I've recently checked out a few and wasn't impressed by any of them.
I have a couple of documents I'd like to save and be able to easily
paste into other documents.

Thanks for any info.

Hi there,

I've used several but keep going back to CLCL. Seems simple at first but
to me very powerful. Can use plugins, has templates, very configurable.

The link is on my site http://www.vbmark.com/

ClipCache 1.41 is freeware and is very good.

I've looked at numerous freeware clipboard utils and this one is the one
I've settled on:

I've tried many programs, but the only one that I know of that keeps a list
of clips in a popup tray menu is this one:
http://www.simtel.net/pub/pd/436.html . It even has a few minor bugs, but it
still is better for me than all the others I've tried that required you do
several steps to access old clips.

Not very recent stuff, apparently.

I'll stick to CLCL.

The thing I liked about that ap was that it would save the latest 20 text
clips in one cascading menu, and one saved menu of 20 clips. All the others
I'd tried down the line you had to open up the program from the tray, then
browse through the clips, double click them then close the ap (I.E. Yankee
Clipper).

Yeah, clipplus is old and buggy, but did what I wanted. I'd like to find
something more stable that did that same thing. I'm testing CLCL now per the
recommendation above.

CLCL brings up the clips in a menu as well (you can set the number in
the options). There is no manual or help file, at least not in
English, so you'll have to experiment with the options, and study the
default settings in detail, to see how you can make additional popup
menus for instance. You can even use it for popup menus, and assign
hotkeys, for launching programmes.
I'm testing CLCL now per the recommendation above.
You are a wise man.

Especially for those with "small" systems it can be useful to see how
much RAM a programme requires while quietly sitting in the systray.

CLCL (20 text fragments + 5 permanent ones (about 50 Kb plain text),
no pictures, plus a menu for launching programmes): 976 Kb

Also mentioned was TypeItIn (one small text fragment): 3056 Kb.
(not a clipboard extender though)

I used to use ClipPlus too many years ago, but am now using CLCL. Tried
heaps of others, but keep coming back to it. I like its resizable popup
menu and the fact that you can also open up the program window to view
the various formats, edit the clips, etc. The only complaint I have is
that I can't get the multicolumn popup menu to work :( Apart from that
it's great.

I did not know it could do that. CLCL is a lot more than a simple
clipboard extender. The problem is that there is no manual or help
file, neither is there a discussion forum, at least not in a language
I can read, so you have to experiment and figure things out yourself.
I use it as clipboard extender, for keeping a collection of frequently
needed text fragments (with submenus under various hotkeys) and for a
number of program launch menus, which I have under a number of
different hotkeys.

Yeah, it's like clipplus in that it has that menu at the right-click, but
works better and image support too which is very nice!

I guess I will be retiring clipplus. I've been hoping to do that for a
while.

CLCL looks interesting, although the Japanese screenshot is rather
off-putting. I already have a commercial program, but I'll take another look
at CLCL.

I also use CDD2, which makes two text files, one containing all plain text
clipboard entries, the other one of the URLs, which is useful for extracting
URLs from a document.

From the helpfile: <quote> CDD 2.0 is a freeware program written to enhance
the functionality of the Windows Clipboard. With CDD you can perform many
automatic operations around your clipboard when copying and pasting. First,
CDD can convert all data copied to the clipboard to plain text. This will,
for example and among many other things, prevent programs like MS Word from
going out to the net to retrieve text from a web page when all you wanted to
do was paste the plain text. CDD can log all data you copy to the
clipboard in plain text files. In addition to logging everything in a
variety of ways is an option to log just URL's and web links you copy to the
clipboard in separate logs. </quote>

The main problem with CLCL is the total lack of documentation. I think
it can do more than I have managed to figure out so far which is:
1) simple clipboard extender, storing x clipboard entries, text as wel
as pictures
2) storage of a number of permanent text fragments or pictures (under
'template'), with possiblities of submenus, with each submenu under a
different hotkey if you desire.
3) menus for launching external applications, submenus as under 2).

I wonder if it has a feature for removing text formatting from clips.
Somehow I think it has, but how?
