ClipX

CNET Editors' review

This simple clipboard program captures files copied to the Windows Clipboard but doesn't offer an extensive feature set compared to others in the category. ClipX offers a simple right-click menu for accessing copied items and configuring the program, while a left-click displays recently copied items. Under Configuration, you can specify how many clips the program retains and whether it should ignore text or bitmap files. Default hot keys let you pull up the list of clips, search ClipX's simple manager for a specific clip, or launch an online search for an item, but it doesn't offer hot keys for individual clips or support drag and drop for easily inserting clips. The program doesn't retain text formatting but it does work with image files. You also can save a set of clips and reload them as needed. ClipX is fairly easy to use and it's offered free of charge, but it doesn't offer the clip-management features found in similar applications.

    "Not work on the basic"

    March 20, 2012  |   By xililili

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    light software

    Cons

    It s an applicattion very old. We need a useful update of this. Very good idea, but have failures very basics. It not remembered the hot keys that you want when reboot windows (sometimes), and the plugin not working when you rebbot the computer sometimes. I need this plugin to uses a list of texts to paste sometimes. Very light software, but in basic things is off. I have to look for other thing

    November 22, 2011  |   By Dick Fitzwell

    Nothing I can think of.

    "An outstanding utility, but still not ready for Win7"

    October 5, 2011  |   By Thor33433

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    Crisp, unobtrusive performance. Easy access to clipboard when you need it -- otherwise, invisible.

    Cons

    Running under Windows 7, I find that ClipX often needs to be restarted. When I call up the clipboard display, sometimes it won't close, or leaves an empty white rectangle that remains until I reboot.

    Summary

    An excellent utility that needs to work better with Windows 7.

    "Perfect and easy, but don't use it with Solidworks"

    January 10, 2011  |   By fmeijer

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    Very easy to use program. Does exactly what you expect of it.

    Cons

    After installing Clipx, Solidworks became instable. I've tried it on a 32 bit and a 64 bit workstation. On both systems Solidworks crashes after installing Clipx. After removing Clipx, Solidworks became stable again.

    "Works as advertized but is awkward"

    January 4, 2011  |   By tcosy

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    It does screen shots which is what i want

    Cons

    If you want to delete a clip, you have to right click and choose "mamage". You then get a window which lists your clips and alows you to delete them. The problem is that you cant see your clips - just a note that says Bitmap and a size!

    "Does exactly what I expected"

    December 11, 2010  |   By robh693

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    Unobtrusive and simple. This was just what I needed.

    Cons

    None. It works perfect.

    Summary

    I was looking for a program that could keep a list of common phrases I was using in Craiglist searches. This little program sits in the tool bar, simply click on the icon then select the phrase you want from the little screen that pops up and it updates the current phrase on the Clipboard. It's also very easy to remove unwanted phrases from the Clipboard memory right from the toolbar icon. A+++

    "Simple and efficient. Use 1.0.3.9 beta 7 for Windows 7"

    September 4, 2010  |   By uriby

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    Simple to use
    Efficient
    History length is changeable

    Cons

    Official release 1.0.3.8 does not support Windows 7.
    1.0.3.8 interface need update.
    Initial configuration is cumbersome. Shortcuts need redefinition.
    Needs plug-in for some extra abilities like size limiting save

    Summary

    Simple and very efficient for multi paste, without too many complications. Version 1.0.3.9 beta from ClipX home page support Windows 7. After some configuration it become adequate replacement for the old CLCL which does not support Windows 7.

    "nice, easy to use utility"

    January 2, 2010  |   By a_la_n

    Version: ClipX 1.3.8

    Pros

    remembers favouirites as well as on the fly copied items.
    You *can* delete individual items from the list - quite easily too (unlike review claim by Fred Brychta on May 2, 2008 )

    Cons

    takes a few more keystrokes than some other programs- but suits me perfectly. No keystroke combinations to remember

    Summary

    recommended. very small reliable utility
