Editors' Review

+

Beneath this clipboard manager's deceptively drab exterior lies a smart set of clip-management tools. Rather than holding one clip at a time, as the Windows Clipboard does, M8 Multi Clipboard can hold up to 30.

If you want to save a particular clip, you can store up to 30 in a single group. From there, you can create up to 100 libraries, each holding 100 groups. The libraries, groups, and clips can be renamed for better organization, and it's easy to move or copy clips from one group to another.

The program's other notable features include built-in text and image editors. The crowded interface makes much more sense after a visit to the help file. We wouldn't recommend M8 Multi Clipboard to rank PC novices, but anyone looking for a powerful clip manager will appreciate the features in this especially generous 60-day trial.

"Spartan pop up after a while is too annoying"

April 06, 2010  |  By kennethwood

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

It works, as described, for a while.

Cons

I downloaded, removed, and re-installed this program three times. Each time, after a while, the program initiates an annoying pop up that insists that you buy the software. This makes this program not free in my estimation.

Summary

Try something else. Try something that is truly free.

"Easy, multifunctional, unobtrusive, fairly intuitive"

March 29, 2010  |  By john_hannah

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

Compact. Ding noise upon copy can be shut off. Very cusomizable. Used it for quite a while and really can't find much to not like other than mentioned below.

Cons

Is actually trialware with frequent nag box once triggered. Could not uninstall. Got message box labeled "Wise uninstall" saying "Could not open INSTALL.LOG file." Upgrade to Spartan is minimal, guess I will.

Summary

Solves a glaring design flaw in Windows. Price is right. Pretty much like it other than the freeware aspect is not noted up front and it won't uninstall. For that reason it makes me feel a little dirty upgrading even if it is a kick ass product..

"Does what I needed."

March 24, 2010  |  By FloydL

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

Great to have access to multiple clips without constantly having to go back to the original document

Cons

none found yet

Summary

You need this if you do a lot of cut & paste operations.

"maybe useful but not what I needed"

March 08, 2010  |  By nocturne05

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

If anything, it offered too many options. Surprising how many different things it could do besides cut and paste

Cons

It simply something that I needed. I want my accustomed Windows way, only with two or three more clips saved at once. It was really more of a toy than anything else.

Summary

I can't understand why I am not smart enough to learn how it works, even from a complete reading of the Help screen. All I wanted was how it worked to do what I have always done, Cut and Paste, or Copy and Paste. Help didn't even tell me in what ways it is different from Windows.

There is some deceptive advertising here. What is free about a trial? Why is this programming trying so hard to "upgrade" my freebie?

My feelings toward this clunky, complicated program are not positive. It only made a simple job much harder.

"Very handy"

March 06, 2010  |  By smcohen

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

It fills a gap that should never have been there in the first place. I can't imagine why Windows has left the clipboard so feeble for all these years. With this little program you can at last have a buffer with more than one (!) entry.

Cons

The way it operates is a bit clunky. The interface could be slicker and smoother.

Summary

It does the job, it's free, and it's always on hand.

"Good stuff!"

March 04, 2010  |  By giessen

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

This is very useful, will save me lots and lots of time once I get used to copy-pasting in a different way.

Cons

I'd like to use Ctrl+Shift+V as the shortkey, but it is not allowed.

Summary



Updated on Jun 20, 2010

Oh, in fact it becomes completely useless after 10 weeks or so, sprouting nagging popups that spoil the mood... Don't bother to install!

"wonderfully easy to use"

March 03, 2010  |  By Tasuki

 |  Version: FreeClip 12.03

Pros

makes the copy/paste functionality so much more useful. Why the hell didn't Billy Gates and company think of this years ago?

Cons

you have to be careful not to click and copy a selected text where it doesn't belong!

Summary

If you do alot of copy/pasting in your wok, this little program makes a world of difference.
