Editors' Review

+

Frequent cut-and-pasters will love M8 Free Clipboard's ability to manage many clips at once as well as its pop-up previews, hotkeys, and multiple paste options. It saves and organizes up to 500 clips. A pop-up control panel lets you organize and annotate multiple Sheets full of clips. Video tutorials, forums, and a quick start guide make M8 Free Clipboard easy to learn.

Pros

Views and previews: Though M8 Free Clipboard only holds 30 clips per Sheet, it supports multiple Sheets and holds up to 500 clips total. Large previews make it easy to tell clips apart.

Hotkey and Macro Clips: Views 9 and 10 hold lists of hotkeys and macro clips, though, as with Sheets, the free version limits storage.

Pictures: The Pictures menu lets you browse and paste images directly from your files or on a single sheet.

Paste: M8 Free Clipboard's Paste menu has more than 20 commands, including cases, cells, sources, and custom buttons. You can even paste directly to HTML editors and DOS.

Cons

Limitations and upgrades: M8 Free Clipboard's limitations over its premium version, Spartan Clipboard, won't matter to the average user who usually only handles a few clips at a time. But some users object to sales pitches, so we're mentioning it.

Bottom Line

M8 Free Clipboard's preview pane is more than enough to recommend it over other multi-clip managers (at least, those that aren't also free versions of Spartan). But any Windows user can benefit from an upgrade over the built-in Clipboard.

"The Swiss Army Knife of Clipboard Viewers"

May 17, 2015  |  By ememkai

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 20.12

Pros

Incredible flexibility and features
Free

Cons

Opens a new window when curse rests on a view field. This can be intrusive and annoying. So many features and ways to perform a simple view and paste from the clipboard makes for a steep learning curve.

Summary

This program performs well and as advertised, but it is too intrusive and complicated for me. All I want is a simple view with a cut and paste option from the clipboard. If the user interface could be made simpler for basic use, this would be a spectacular program.

"Incredible feature set - terrific!!"

July 30, 2014  |  By ajstockman

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.11

Pros

Stores clips even after session closes (better than the old Windows clipboard)
Allows multiple clips to be sorted and colorized/categorized
Assign your own hot keys
Excellent in-line help for options dialog boxes
Lightweight!
Free

Cons

A little confusing to start off (only because there were SO MANY OPTIONS!)
Price for full software (not that I think I'll need it) is pretty high, so I'm going to have to donate or something

Summary

Big thanks to the developers for making this utility available. It is a geek's dream :)

"Outstanding"

June 16, 2014  |  By davidwilsonreporter

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.11

Pros

Before I tried Ditto which was hard to persuade to paste what it saved. M8 is much smoother. Great program.

Cons

So far I have only minor niggles at most. Eg the tutorial video is on the long side but the Scottish accent is charming.

"simple, clean and easy to use-perfect for repeated text"

March 26, 2014  |  By rdgorton

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.041

Pros

-simple interface: paste a clip just by clicking
-automatically collects everything you cut or copy
-ability to highlight clips and organize
-20 (nameable) sheets with 25 clips each
-time stamp clips, graphic clips, preformatted text
-hotkeys

Cons

-clicking the "x" doesn't close the program, just minimizes it. closing requires File>Exit
-preset hot keys (no option for custom hot keys)
-20 clips per sheet and no option to view multiple (it is free though)

Summary

If you need to see more than 25 individual clips at a time, get Spartan but otherwise M8 is fantastic. At work I answer phone calls and manage files which usually requires entering the same few sentences over and over. With this, I can have all of the clips stored and simply click or use a hot key to paste them every time I need them. It's simple and free and doesn't bog up my computer. Using on Windows XP with MS Office 97 and 2003

"AMAZING PRODUCT and really easy to use"

March 18, 2014  |  By rdgorton

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.04

Pros

intuitive interface, hot keys, macros clips, very customizable

Cons

limited number of stored clips in free version

Summary

I downloaded this for work. I make a lot of phone calls and ended up typing the same thing hundreds of times a day. I initially wanted to use the Hotkeys but discovered the Time Stamp Clip feature that will paste a time stamp (you choose the formatting) with other text. This is amazing. I'm running Windows XP (I KNOWWW) and MS Office 03 (also worked with MS Office 97) and haven't had any issues. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!!!

"Just what I need!"

February 16, 2014  |  By tcosy

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.01

Pros

What I really like about this is that whenever I copy something to quote in a paper, it gives me a secondary clip which I can use as a reference. And when I come to compile the paper, it pates in the quote and the reference. FAB Virgil!

Cons

Nothing as yet

"NOT A RIP OFF - Best there is!"

February 16, 2014  |  By slandovos

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.01

Pros

Apparently, the previous reviewer cannot count! You don't get 10 cells. You get 25 cells on each of 20 sheets. That's 500 cells total. All the features work. There is no question of having to pay for them.

True, this is a cut down version of the Spartan clipboard but the only difference is that Spartan can store 10,000 clips and the free clipboard can only store 500.

If you have a need to store more than 500 clips, this isn't for you. If your needs are more modest then this free clipboard is without a doubt the best available.

Cons

Its biggest problem is that it seems to attract benefit scroungers who think the world owes them a living and that all software aught to be free!

"Rip Off, leave this one alone"

February 15, 2014  |  By richalone442

 |  Version: M8 Free Clipboard 19.01

Pros

nothing free about it, you get just 10 cells in the free app, if you want the features, you pay out the ass

Cons

nothing free about it, you get just 10 cells in the free app, if you want the features, you pay out the ass

Summary

nothing free about it, you get just 10 cells in the free app, if you want the features, you pay out the ass
