"Give yourself a present for the holidays, and try ClipMate. This is one of my all-time favorites!" 
- Dr. File Finder

The native clipboard in Windows is great for cutting and pasting a single item at a time, but if you want to move a series of items, or save items for later use, then you need ClipMate!

Rather than working with one piece of clipboard data at a time, ClipMate enhances the native clipboard functionality by remembering all items (both text and graphic) that are copied to the clipboard and storing them in "collections" for later pasting. With ClipMate as a Windows companion, users will never accidentally lose a piece of clipboard data again.   ClipMate's new relational database can hold dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of clips - of all formats including Text, Graphics, and HTML.  And with ClipMate's new SQL-based search engine, you'll be able to find your data, and the new Shortcut feature keeps your most-frequently used clips right at your fingertips.

Take a Look!

ClipMate Classic presents a toolbar with a drop-down list of clipboard entries.  Just pick one and it's back on the clipboard.

"ClipMate Explorer" enables you to select, preview, edit, combine,  and manage clips. The example below shows ClipMate in "List" mode for reading text. Or you can select "Thumbnails" mode for viewing and selecting images.  
User-defined collections of data are shown as folders, using a directory tree. Sortable ClipList shows you a listing of clips in the current collection

The Preview/Edit window is bristling with powerful tools to help you manage your text data and view your graphic images or activate internet links.

  See ClipMate in action by watching this online "viewlet" demonstration of basic cut & paste capability in ClipMate. It's as easy as watching TV!  (more viewlets)

ClipMate has powerful tools enabling users to retrieve, append, print, reformat, and edit data.  An exclusive PowerPaste(TM) feature puts ClipMate in "rapid fire" mode, allowing quick pasting of a series of items into an application.

ClipMate's QuickPaste puts the most recently copied items at your fingertips. Just summon ClipMate with a hotkey, select the item, and it is inserted right where you were working.

Internet users will love the internet features in ClipMate, such as the ability to view HTML data and re-visit the original web page that data was copied from. If you are working with raw HTML tags, you can see what they would look like AS HTML. And you can launch any URL to your default web browser, without having to carve it out of the surrounding text. It also includes powerful editing and re-formatting features, which are great for cleaning up poorly formatted Email messages. 

ClipMate will remember the "source url" of any data copied from IE or Netscape, making it easy to revisit the page - with just a click.

Speaking of editing, ClipMate supports drag 'n' drop editing, meaning that not only can you edit data right within ClipMate, but now you have full drag 'n' drop capability, along with local cut 'n' paste, line-break removal, case conversion, and more. It has more editing features than many stand-alone text editors! 

ClipMate serves as a great screen capture tool, and now has support for exporting captured images as bitmap or jpeg - perfect for sending screenshots by Email.  It can also automatically print screen shots, if you wish.  ClipMate 6 now features "area screen capture", allowing you to select a portion of the screen.  

Do you work with sensitive data?   Credit card numbers and such?  Our new powerful (but legal for export) ARC4 encryption keeps your sensitive data safe from prying eyes. 

Do you have a workgroup environment?  Perhaps in a customer service or support role?  Use ClipMate's multi-user database to allow everybody to share commonly-used clips.  

Do you work with a lot of structured data?  If  you have data that is separated by commas, tabs, linefeeds, etc., then ClipMate's "Exploding PowerPaste" can make short work of data entry.  People who work with a lot of contact information (lists of name, address, etc.) absolutely love this.  

Still not sure what you'd use ClipMate for? Watch some of the online "viewlet" demonstrations to see it in action.  We also have the complete user's manual online in HTML format (there's a downloadable/printable PDF too).  

Now we invite you to download our 30-day free trial, and see for yourself, why ClipMate has been the most popular clipboard enhancement since 1991, and why it has tens of thousands of satisfied users worldwide.
