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.

    "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!

    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
