    Mutliping pastings at one time

    Morning -

    Word97, SR-2, Win98

    Use Clip Trak (from Ziff-Davis ). It's a great utility. However, you can only paste one item at a time from its cache.
    I looked at ArsClip & that seems to say you can copy multiple items. Has anyone used this, or any other Clip utility that allows multiple pastings?

    Thank you for your input.

    Re: Mutliping pastings at one time

    I've used Smartboard 2000 for some time & am generally happy with it, although it's not perfect. I've previously posted in this forum describing it.

    If anyone could evaluate other clipboard extenders or compare these utilities, I think it would be beneficial. I probably use it more than any other utility.
    Cheers,

    Phil -

    Thank you for your prompt response. Tried tracking down Smartboard. No luck. Will look into Yankee Clipper.

    To further your idea of commenting on such utilities, I've tried 3dClip from SmartSoft. It's basic, not "elegant," but, again, doesn't allow for mass clippings.

    Will be eager to read other comments.

    Good Weekend to all.

    Hi Curious:
    You can click the search link at the top of WOPR Lounge, select the forum, type a word(s) & search. I found this thread that discusses Clipmate & Smartboard & this thread that discusses ClipCachePlus & Yankee Clipper.

    You can find Smartboard at http://www.smartboardxp.com/.

    Cheers,

    I've used ClipMate for years. It has a feature called Power Paste which, although I have never tried it, I believe does what you want. ClipMate was well worth the money for me.

    I didn't want to edit my post, in case you've already read it. I went back and tested my ClipMate's power paste function and it works like a charm. In my "clipboard" I put three hunks of text as the most recent clips. Then selected "power paste up" and opened my word processor. Hit Ctrl-V three times and the clips were pasted in, as advertised. Just thought you ought to know.

    Smartboard does that too. Actually, you don't have to set anything up in advance. You just use a hotkey combination which you can configure. (I use Ctrl+Shift+PageUp or PageDown) Another thing I like is that you can set a multicapture mode & copy different sucessive selections to the same clip item. (Although, it sometimes strips the space out between the selections).

    Hey, Big Al -

    Thanks so much! Sounds like a ringing endorsement.(And, yes, I had already read your first post.)

    And to you, Phil, thanks for your Smartboard info.

    Defrag, Hi Again -

    After reading more about Piky Basket I realized it didn't concern the Clipboard. But, it certainly is a good utility to know about and I do thank you for bringing it to our attention.


    HAS anyone tried ArsClip?
    Curious.

    Re: Mutliping pastings at one time

    Hi defrag:
    While it does look like an interesting utility, from its description, it appears to have a different fucntion than copying or pasting multiple text or graphics. This copies or moves files themselves to different folders. However, it seems like it would be useful for major housecleaning. Thanks for the info.

    What would have been really useful is if Microsoft's Find Files & Folders would let you select multiple files & then move or copy them to a given folder using SendTo. THAT would have been dynamite!

    Re: Mutliping pastings at one time

    Sorry I was a little off--should have been more careful in what I was offering. But the
    site has some useful free downloads. I haven't had time unfortunately to read the
    help on Clipcache Plus from Rose City software to see if it has any impact on what's
    being searched for by Curious.. I have bombarded Microsoft Wish with lots of suggestions
    and yours is an excellent one. I'll keep looking for applications that have the
    'functionality' being requested.

    Re: Mutliping pastings at one time

    Mike Lin has a clipboard utility, "Clipomatic", that I've found very useful and easy to use. It doesn't paste multiple clips at once, but it is very easy to paste multiple clips in succession from the clip cache. You can also set up libraries of "permanent " clips for pasting frequently used text.
    You can check out this program, and others by Mike, at http://www.mlin.net/Clipomatic.shtml.
    Oh yes.......it's free.

    Have a Great day!!
    Ken
