Editors' review

This freeware offers a simple Clipboard utility that stores and saves copied items for future use. Clipomatic runs in the system tray, is simple to use, and is quick to understand and master. It can capture items in any format. The normal copy/paste functions of Ctrl C and Ctrl V hot keys remain active because Clipomatic uses a different set of keys to paste the items stored sequentially in the application. The cache where the Clipboard items are stored is also expandable by accessing additional settings in the right-click options. You can save easy-to-switch sets of clippings in separate files called, naturally, Clip Sets so you can quickly paste presaved text that suits a particular category of work; for example, you could have one Clip Set file of boilerplate text for contracts and another for pasting commands. Users who want expanded, easily saved-and-accessed clipboard storage capacity should try this handy and efficient application.

    "Excellent for Coding"

    May 10, 2008   |   By MrWebAuthor

    Version: Clipomatic 2.01

    Pros

    I'm from the old school, and I do about all of my web design in a text editor. This little tool allows me to set up clip sets with specifically saved scripts. Whenever I'm editing certain types of code, I can load that particular clip set, and I have all my codes right there. Talk about saving time, this tool does it!

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    "Perfect and almost simple. Wait, no, other way around."

    March 13, 2007   |   By TheKitchenSink

    Version: Clipomatic 2.01

    Pros

    Pretty much everything. Check this out: When this program is running, (and you can choose to make it do so on startup via the settings dialog) it adds a little icon to the system tray. Whenever you copy text, be it Ctrl+C or menu, it is stored into the clipboard. Note that this is not stored into the cache, as it's still on your actual clipboard (though the author thought ahead and created a "flush current item" command, to move it to the cache). Anyways, now, the one that you just stored on your clipboard can be pasted via the old Ctrl+V. But, with this utility, upon pressing Ctrl+Alt+V, it displays a dropdown menu (like a right click) of the one on your clipboard and everything in your cache. You can choose to delete what is in your cache. There's also a clipset editor, which allows you to change the order of the cached items (the first ten can be accessed on the dropdown with the number keys), delete items, and even edit them. It's really quite exquisite.

    Cons

    That WoodyK9 doesn't know what he's talking about, and is probably too confused to use the clipboard anyways. (It can store up to 64 clips in one cache, and you can save "clipsets," which are permanent caches that you can load and unload at any time. If you really for some reason want to save absolutely everything you've ever copied, this utility can do it. In bits in pieces.)

    "Very small and efficient everyday tool"

    May 31, 2006   |   By francomo

    Version: Clipomatic 2.01

    Pros

    It is very useful tool that records several iteration of the copy function, meaning you can past back something even after copying something else after. You can also set it to offer a choice of often used texts for quick paste access to them.

    Cons

    I have to restart it once in a while because it won't record the clipboard anymore.

    "Only useful for a very few clips"

    March 01, 2006   |   By WoodyK9

    Version: Clipomatic 2.01

    Cons

    When you activate it to paste back something youve copied, there is just a single popup list - quite useless if you want to save hundreds of clips

    "Once in a while you find a gem, this one is a diamond"

    June 23, 2005   |   By mjbuell

    Version: Clipomatic 2.01

    Pros

    Very low system overhead.

    Installs on tray by default.

    Allows me to have lists of things I copy and paste often, great for what I do.

    The hot key combo is programmable, so in case the default Ctrl+Alt+V conflicts with an existing program, you can change it.

    Super simple to use !!

    Cons

    I have not found one
