Introducing ClipMate 7


  • PortableYou can now take your clips with you, on portable USB "thumb" drives, either equipped with a launcher such as the free PortableApps.Com framework.  And of course, it also works on "bare" drives with no "launchpad".  
  • Universal QuickPaste - Available from within Explorer or Classic. Just double-click on a clip, and it pastes wherever you were working. The new "Auto-Targeting" feature watches to see which application you are working in, so that it knows where to paste data when you double-click on a clip.
  • Virtual Collections - Shows you all clips captured Today, last 7 days, and last 31 days.
  • Printing - Improved printing support in version 7.3 features "paper saver" printing for both Text and Graphic clips.

The exclusive ClipBar integrates right into the windows taskbar, showing the current clip, and up to two rows of toolbar buttons. It's completely customizable so that you can have your most frequently used ClipMate commands right on the taskbar. It's integrated with QuickPaste, giving you quick access to your clips right on the windows taskbar.  And you can always see what's on the clipboard!  If the taskbar option doesn't suit you, Classic and Explorer are still there, and also feature the new QuickPaste and Drag/Drop functionality. They're better than ever.


  • XML Import/Export (7.1) - Allows you to share clips with other users, or synchronize multiple databases.  If you move from one computer to another, you can export the new/changed clips, and then import into the other database to "sync up".  You can even send XML files to other users to share your favorite clips.
  • Macro Clips (7.1) - Allow you to designate clips as "macro clips", so that special tokens such as {ENTER}, {TAB}, #DATE#, etc., will be "expanded". This allows the insertion of ENTER, TAB, and modifiers like CTRL+, ALT+, and SHIFT+ to perform "live" as the item is virtually "typed into" the target program.  This allows limited navigation within the target app, such as entering a TAB between a userid and password, followed by an ENTER.
  • VISTA (7.2) ClipMate utilizes the new clipboard functions available in Vista, to eliminate clipboard connection problems.
  • Drag 'n Drop - You can now drag text, rich text and graphic clips right into any OLE-compliant application like Word, Internet Explorer, FireFox, TextPad, etc.. You can also drag portions of a text clip from the editing window directly into other programs. And internal drag/drop has been enhanced as well, such as when dragging a clip into the editor.
  • Templates - add title, URL, date/time, or any boilerplate text to clips as they are pasted. It's like a "mail-merge", built right in.  Similar to the "format strings" in QuickPaste, but will work in all situations, and is compatible with PowerPaste.
  • Screen Capture - Dual-monitor capture is now supported, with mouse pointer capture.  Capture individual screens, selected areas on screens, or the whole desktop.  And now there are toolbar buttons that you can use to keep your favorite screen-grab functions right at hand, even on the ClipBar if you like. Update: 7.2 lets you capture from up to EIGHT monitors.
  • User Interface improvements feature easy "stay on top" toggling with transparency, more flexible choices with ClipMate Classic layout, and visually pleasing "skins".  The screenshots on this page feature the "Longhorn" skin.
  • Additional hotkeys (7.1) for manual clip capture, toggling auto-capture, and manual filtering.

And More!

  • Outbound Filtering is now "active", meaning that if enabled, any new clip arriving on the clipboard is immediately overwritten by a "plain text" or "plain bitmap" version, without the fancy formats such as HTML, RTF, OLE, etc.. 
  • Graphic storage in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format, with comparable space savings to JPEG with no loss of image quality.
  • Export - The Export function can now prompt for filenames. Graphic clips can be exported directly to PNG files, along witih JPG and BMP as before.  If you do a lot of exporting, you can also put the Export button on any of the toolbars.
  • URL highlighting in editor can now be turned on/off, enabling editing of text with URLs.
  • Database compatibility with ClipMate 6.5 - eases transitioning, with proven reliability.
  • Improved  Unicode Support (7.1)
