Are you speaking about Clip Angel? If so, I would appreciate if you describe your crush in detail.

A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 3 years 4 months ago tormozit

Ditto is really technically good, fast and light. But it has minimalistic non-standart UI and some other issues for me...
I tryed to begin using Ditto many times in last 10 years but unreliable execution of Paste command in non english input language kills my attempts every time. So my Clip Angel was done with big attention to reliability, compatibility and conveniency of main functions - find the right piece of data and send paste with it.
I could not find in Ditto way to quickly switch on/off word wrap. Clip Angel has many hot switches (tool buttons) allowing quick change many combination of modes.
Ditto UI requires to manually switch focus to filter field by pressing TAB to begin filtering. Clip Angel does it automatically - pressing UP/DOWN/PgDown/PgUp you select clip in list and in the same time pressing symbol keys, Backspace, RIGHT/LEFT, ... you change text filter.
I could not find how to turn on HTML rendering in Ditto. Clip Angel has good support for HTML rendering with switched on "Native formatting" mode.

If your current clipboard manager satisfies you then no need to waste time trying every new one. I made Clip Angel because none of existing satisfies me. I tried about 30 of tem and my top 2 were: AceText and ClipDiary. I am coder/developer. So my most actions on PC are related to writting code.

Some people like minimal UI. CLCL is the best for them.
Other like speed, fuctionality and then minimal UI. Ditto is the best for them.
I am not from those 2 groups. So I made my Clip Angel =)

Nice find : ) I've been through no end of clipboard managers for something that suits my needs, this one seems light and stable so far.

It appears to lack image preview but I can live with that and maybe there's some setting somewhere that I missed.

About image preview. Due to small row height only left top fragment 100x20 pixels is shown in each row of list without resize. Whole image resized to fit clip panel (right part of window) is show for current clip. Can you describe your ideas about how to make it better? For now I have only one idea - to show tooltip with image of clip under cursor, but it can be annoying due to it's big size and changing position.

No error messages, nothing happens. I read the reference to Vista + as meaning it does not work on earlier versions of Windows. I don't know what .Net 4.52 framework is, or how to tell if is installed. There is a .Net 3.51 SP1 on the computer.

Hi, thanks for your reply and for a nice piece of freeware : )

When I first tried your program I saw no graphic previews at all, just locations the same as in the left hand pane. After experimenting a bit further though, I've found that graphic previews are shown for jpg files from my hard drive but not if I right click and copy an image in Firefox. For png files on my hard drive, ClipAngel shows previews for some but not all. It's not a big issue though, it's not something I would use often anyway.

The preview as it is, now that I have found it, is fine. No need at all to change that in my opinion.

I did wonder though, is there or could there be, a button to show/hide the right hand preview pane and only display the list? I know I can resize it but a toolbar button or hotkey would be handy.

A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 3 years 4 months ago tormozit

Now I understand that you are talking about images in HTML clips. They can have many ways of linking to binary data. That's why some of them are shown always. some are show for a while (from temp files) and some are not shown at all. Many factors may influence this behavour. So if you want reliably copy image from browser you have to execute "Copy image" command in the context menu of image or capture it directly with screenshot capture soft.

You say it can be installed or stand alone, but I can not find an installer, when I open the zip file I downloaded it extracts all files, then when I click on CickAngel.exe it runs as a stand alone program. Where do I find the installer?

view
A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 2 years 12 months ago tormozit

I am author of ClipAngel. You are right. Actually there is no installer but 2 modes of starting application (from ReadMe.txt):

No actions required in addition to the system requirements for installing program. You can run program from any catalog, but the program will use single settings and database, stored in Windows user profile, in normal mode and in program catalog - in portable mode. To autostart program on user logon, you have to turn on appropriate checkbox in Settings window. ClipAngelPortable.bat or parameter /p - runs application in portable mode, settings and standart database will be loaded/saved in the same catalog, where program is started.

I use Ditto which works fine for me, and I'd like to give a warning about clipboard managers in general.

If you use a clipboard manager to copy a password, that password will remain in the clipboard manager until it is deleted. So, if you do use a clipboard manager to copy and paste passwords, immediately remove that password from the clipboard manager.

view
A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 2 years 12 months ago tormozit

Very good advice. But if you use good password manager (like KeePass) which can set Clipboard Viever Ignore Format (CVIF) while coping password to clipboard, then good clipboard manager (like ClipAngel or Ditto or ClipDiary) will understand this flag and will not capture password. Discussion about CVIF for Ditto https://sourceforge.net/p/ditto-cp/discussion/287511/thread/2185c0e1/ . And do not forget to turn on CVIF in options of KeePass 2.X (it is off by default)

I have tested many clipboard programs over the year, and greatly prefer Clipboard Help+Spell because:

1. It allows you to have Favorites to use and reuse

2. It's easy to delete a clip from the listing (e.g. passwords)

3. It works with text and images equally well

4. It has an extensive history of previously used clips

view
A Really Nice, Powerful Clipboard Manager 2 years 11 months ago tormozit

Very weak reason to choose clipboard manager. You can copy any piece of text from any place (even from other clip in clipboard manager) to make new clip and then you can edit it and it will be stored like usual clip. There are many clipboard managers that allow to do this (for ex. Ditto, ClipAngel).

Since this does not work in XP
XP users could use Ditto instead
This is the latest version that works in XP (32bit) -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/files/Ditto/3.21.134.0/
I tried the latest 4 to prove that 3.21.134 is the most recent that works in XP
I was only trying the portable versions.
There is a slight chance that the installed versions will give a different result ? ?
Anyone who wishes to experiment with those, can find them here -
https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/files/Ditto/

PS I am willing to give ClipAngel a go (in XP).
I am a bit worn out, but anyone who is interested, could do similar experiments with older versions of ClipAngel -

If you post the result (previous version that works in XP), I will Shirley give it a try.

I have a very specific set of requirements that include:

- tiny memory footprint (<5MB)
- truly portable (no dependency on any framework, including .NET)
- easy to trigger (Win + V or simpler)
- ability to format/manipulate text in the buffer
- ability to store/organize permanent snippets

ClipX was my go-to clipboard manager for many years, but it didn't play well with Windows 10, so I spent a lot of time trying out all the clipboard managers I could find to find an alternative. I finally settled on Clibor, and have never looked back. It's amazing how much power was crammed into such a small utility. If you can get past the crowded interface and sporadic wonky translations, I highly recommend giving Clibor an honest try.

PS I am a control freak, and W10 is the exact opposite.
I was going to live with Windows Defender, but discovered it is doing Scans (even inside Zip files), even when I have not told it to do a scan.

Also there are occasions when one wishes to disable the anti virus. It is 5 times easier to disable Avast Free, and it stays off until I tell it to return. Windows Defender will turn itself on when it feels like it.

Yup, Nirsofer's Nirsoft has a tool for just about anything you might need or want for Windows.

@Rob, - After months of proper functioning, one of my laptops began having the same exact problem which (after much digging and troubleshooting) I only managed to fix by uninstalling my third-party Windows Firewall utility, (Binisoft's "Windows Firewall Control - WFC") and resetting Windows Firewall to defaults; uninstalling the WiFi adapter and *deleting* its driver; then, rebooting and reinstalling the adapter, followed by the firewall utility. So far, after about six hours, all remains well . ~;-)

My difficulties began while I was traveling and repeatedly switched back-and-forth between two ISP's (via tethering to my phone) without first shutting down the firewall; and perhaps, even rebooting for good measure. I know you know how to fix your problem but I hope sharing my experience is helpful.

I am fairly certain that directories and folders were around before Windows.

b) products such as Xtree were around before Windows.

Yes Burn-IT they were around before Windows. I think the editor refers to MS-DOS 1.0, a renamed version of QDOS in 1981, which did not support a hierarchical file system. It was only added to MS-DOS 2.0 in 1983. (Ref: MS-DOS: A Brief Introduction; The MS-DOS File System)
 
According to Wikipedia, the first release of XTree was in 1985, i.e. after MS-DOS had supported the hierarchical file system.

There wasn't that many files (or even clusters) that would fit on a floppy-disk which was the standard storage device for such microcomputers. The floppy-disk provided relatively random data access and was a step up from sequential access devices like cassette tape drives and stringy floppy drives.

DOS as an acronym for Disk Operating System is a very common name for many different computer operating systems that have not much in common except their name. While MS-DOS and PC-DOS are often shortened to DOS, they are no relation to any of the following operating systems (OS) - all of which I used in the 1980s.

  • Mainframe OS like IBM DOS (DOS/360).
  • Minicomputer OS like DEC DOS and Datapoint DOS.

Right - it will update your computer which will override the DNS settings on the router. This can be very handy if, for example, you want to use OpenDNS's kids-safe servers that will block unsafe, porn, etc sites on the kids computer but don't want blocks on the others. (or block all systems from the router but override on one)

Also, if you're wanting to access US-only services (like Hulu) from Canada or Britain, for example, some DNS servers present you as coming from the US, allowing access to those services. (like #22) These however are not fast DNS servers, so its handy to then switch it back to your fast ones after use.

Am I doing something wrong here?
I tried the link above for WINAERO and it took me to VisualBee, where, after bypassing a pile of software it wanted to add to my pc, it downloaded VisualBee for Miscrosoft PowerPoint, and something called a VisualBee V.1 toolbar!!
I used REVO UNINSTALLER to remove both, and the toolbar wouldn't go away when I opened my CHROME browser.
This is the 2nd instance where I downloaded software from a TECHSUPPORT email, and it loaded junk! I can't believe the gurus there are putting this stuff out for the community to use?
Or am I doing something WRONG?
