Click To View All, or add your own!I have been using ClipMate for several years to help me paste information into our TrueType language fonts before we finish the fonts and ship them. After the glyphs are drawn I need to enter the font names, copyright information, the Software License, dates and version numbers, etc., into different tables in the fonts using a Properties Editor. Years ago I set up this information in a ClipMate Collection, and have been clicking on each clip one at a time, clicking in the appropriate field in the editor, and pasting. Today I took time to read the part of the manual dealing with Power Paste. In less than one minute I learned how ClipMate will walk through the Collection in order, allowing me to simply move my cursor from field to field in the Properties Editor, pasting as I go. I no longer need to click on a ClipMate clip and then click back in my Properties Editor. I just click on the Power Paste icon, then tab my way through the fields in the Properties Editor, pasting as I go. I am astounded at how this has helped me get my work done today. I am changing a set of more than 100 fonts today, and ClipMate has saved me much time, and more than 1000 clicks of the mouse button (just today). This is going to save wear and tear on my sore right wrist, and get my work done more quickly. Thanks very much for an indispensable tool. I am finally going to read the manual, to see how else ClipMate can help me.

ClipMate on Vista

ClipMate on Vista, with Aero Glass

Not surprisingly, many users are asking us if ClipMate runs on Vista.  Sure it does!  We've been running ClipMate on Vista since the December 2006.  Like they say, "you can't build it, unless you live it!"  ClipMate 7 runs quite well on Vista, and does take advantage of some of the neat new features, particularly the "bulletproof" ClipBoard notification system in Vista, which prevents lost clipboard events.

 

UPDATE: ClipMate also runs great on Windows7, Windows 8, and 8.1. 

Known Issues

  • Installation - FIXED in 7.2 and Later!
  • New to ClipMate? Find out all about it here.

    Skins - the skins library is causing trouble (crashes). Don't use the skins on Vista.  The installer for ClipMate 7.2 won't even let you install the skins.  Good news - ClipMate looks great on Vista, without skins.
  • DEP - FIXED In 7.3
  • Clipbar on Vista64 - You cannot run the ClipBar on 64-bit Vista.  (FIXED IN 7.5!!)

Screenshots

Cool Stuff

Sounds too loud or too soft?  Vista lets you control the volume for individual applications. When ZDNet tested this, apparently they like their ClipMate sounds quieted down a bit. See this screenshot in their slideshow, where ClipMate is clearly visible.
