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.

"Very Good, But....."

September 14, 2012  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: M8 Free Multi Clipboard 17.16

Pros

It sits in your tray and does what it says and copies links to it ready for pasting which is done with one click. It is very helpful.

Cons

The 'But' bit is that after some time of using it, instead of the usual one sheet view it opens up to store 500, which you can't use because you have to buy the upgrade. There has also been an annoying flashing box to get you to upgrade.

Summary

It started off great but ended up with the program owner continuously trying to get you to upgrade and buy. So for me this *was* great but is now a big disappointment and I am going to try a different program.

"This is the most useful free multi clipboard available"

August 24, 2012  |  By slandovos

 |  Version: M8 Free Multi Clipboard 17.16

Pros

Please see below. Not enough room here.

Cons

Nothing I can find

Summary

The Microsoft Office (And most other) multi clipboards simply retain the last few clips so that you can copy more than once before pasting. That functionality doesn't even scratch the surface of what M8 can do!

You can save clips permanently. You can take and edit screen shots. You can create clips which automatically include the system date and time. You can paste any digital photo or graphic file on your PC simply by browsing to it and clicking a button - and you have the option to paste it in the format accepted by Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail which other clipboards do not offer. You can even have your photos automatically reduced to a sensible size for emails during the paste process.

You can encrypt sensitive clips and you can create what they call "Log On" clips. In a Log On clip, you enter a web address where you log in to something, plus your user name, password and anything else you need to log in. When you click on a Log On clip, the web site opens in your browser and a miniature version of the clipboard opens above it with your user name and password ready to paste in.

As well as a multi clipboard, you get a year planner, a graphics editor and a picture browser thrown in. Clips which are Web addresses work as bookmarks. Clips which are phone numbers will dial via your modem. Clips which are files on your PC work as shortcuts to them. It will remove email indentation chevrons from text. It will word wrap fixed line length text (Including the repair of hyphenated words) It even pastes text into old DOS programs! The list of uses for this software just goes on and on?.. and on.

"Puts the MS Office clipboard to shame!"

August 24, 2012  |  By tracyrex

Pros

This is a superb and extremely useful piece of software. After only a couple of days use, I'm not sure how I managed without it! A simple idea, put to use remarkably effectively.

Cons
