Clipboard Manager

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ClipClip?

ClipClip is a productivity tool which expands the functionality of your clipboard. Instead of having a single item in your clipboard, you can have hundreds. This means you no longer have to switch between windows when copying and pasting several items. You can also search through your clipboard history to find something you copied recently or up to several months ago, depending on your privacy settings. 

In addition, you can save Clips you use often as Saved Clips. Many people use these as templates to have easy access to texts, images or files they frequently use. This saves a lot of time if you’re an individual, and even more if you’re working in a team. Saved Clips are stored as normal files (txt, html, jpeg, etc) on your hard drive so you may use your favorite cloud service (e.g. Dropbox, Google Drive or even SVN) to share Saved Clips with your team.

Why use ClipClip?

ClipClip will save you and/or your team significant time. Rather than using separate systems anywhere you use templates (such as email, support desks, forums, etc.) you can use a single piece of lightweight software which works universally across all services and software applications.

How does ClipClip handle my data?

In age when cloud services can be shut down, get acquired by larger firms, or change its privacy policy from one day to the next, this is an important question. Personal privacy and data lock-in are unfortunate consequences of being limited to a single cloud provider (f.i. Evernote).

ClipClip saves your clips in common and often human-readable or open-source file formats such as .txt, .md, .html, .png, or .jpeg. The only exception is for password-protected folders, which are stored as an encrypted .zip file.

Thanks to ClipClip’s methodology when it comes to using non-proprietary formats, you can freely choose to store your files only locally on your hard drive, or to synchronize your clips using your preferred cloud service provider, such as Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, SugarSync, Amazon Cloud Drive, OneDrive, pCloud, iCloud, OpenDrive, or Mega.

Clips that are stored as plain text or Markdown files provide unparalleled flexibility when it comes to storage, publishing to the web, or using third-party editors.
