ClipCache Profor PC
Give Your Windows Clipboard Superpowers
Platforms: Windows XP, Vista (32 and 64 bit), 7 (32 and 64 bit)
Please note folks, a ClipCache Pro license allows the use of both the portable and single-user versions. Now that's a good deal!
We make no secret over here of our general dissatisfaction with the Windows Clipboard. After all, it's dumbed down the potential of the PC clipboard to the point that 99% of the people out there don't even consider the possibilities beyond Ctrl-C.
But all is not lost! ClipCache Pro takes the Windows clipboard and makes it relevant again. For starters, it used to be that you could only store one item on the Windows clipboard (Ok, 12 with the "new & improved" Windows clipboard). With ClipCache Pro there are no limits. That's right, you can cut, copy, and paste without fear of ever overwriting data already on your clipboard.
Once installed, ClipCache Pro runs silently (and efficiently) in the background. All clipboard activity is saved by ClipCache Pro and organized into folders. You can edit or merge text entries on the spot or perform advanced searches through the history archives. The folder implementation is flawless - you can preview clips, drag and drop clips between folders and applications, and even set limits on the number of items in each folder, so once that cap is reached, ClipCache Pro will delete the oldest clips to make room for more! Navigation is intuitive, allowing you to move forward and backward in folder browser history with ease.
Using ClipCache to do serious research? You're in luck! ClipCache now reliably records the source of your clips by capturing and storing the name of the source window!
How about this? ClipCache also features extensive text cleanup features. You know those infuriating emails filled up with ">>>>>" indentation markers? All you need to do is copy the offending message into ClipCache, and it'll remove all those arrows in a flash! But stripping email indents is only the beginning. ClipCache's cleanup function can also:
- Remove leading spaces and tabs
- Remove trailing spaces
- Remove duplicate lines
- Remove linebreaks
- Remove empty lines
- Strip HTML tags
- Decode URL encoded text...
- ...and much more. You can even create custom cleaning routines!
Even pasting is improved in ClipCache Pro! You can assign specific clips to hotkeys, for instant one-press pasting whenever you need it. PowerPaste performs a series of pastes of consecutive clips from a folder into the active application - great for filling out forms online. Enable Clipboard Routing, and everything that you copy to the clipboard is automatically pasted into another application.
The best part? ClipCache Pro is also available as a portable archive, small enough to fit on a portable USB flash drive so you can carry your clips with you wherever you go!
The latest and greatest version of ClipCache Pro comes on board with many performance enhancements, including support for Microsoft Vista's clipboard listener - ClipCache Pro brings the era of broken clipboard chains to an end!
You can get ClipCache Pro with the following license types:
ClipCache Pro Single User ($29.95)
ClipCache Pro Family Pack (5 computers) ($59.95)
ClipCache Pro Portable ($29.95)
