ClipMagic is a Time-Saver
What is Clipmagic?
Do you know what a clipboard is? The clipboard is the part of your computer’s memory that holds something you have copied until you paste it on something else.The problem with this is, it only holds one thing at a time, so you can’t access anything you copied previously.
So, I have done some research. There are many programs available which act as extenders to the clipboard – they store everything you copy so you can access them at a later date.
I never knew these programs existed, to tell you the truth. Only found out about them when researching where to find the clipboard.
Today’s Friday Finding is a program called ClipMagic. This, to me, is simple to understand and use.
ClipMagic 4 works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 and Windows 8.
They host many instructional videos which will have you copying and pasting in no time.
The Good Stuff about ClipMagic
I downloaded the free trial and followed the instructions in the video – so simple.
For me, I can see the following benefits:-
*** There is a free trial version and when you have trialled and are ready to buy, it will cost you US $14.99.
*** Time saving – When I paste something onto notepad or a Word document, I have to keep going backwards and forwards to the original document to copy and then keep switching back to the notepad to copy. Then I have to remember to save at each step. This can be time-consuming.
*** Also stores URLs for quick retrieval.
*** With the PastePicker set up correctly, the copy and paste procedure is much simpler.You just copy the selected text and it automatically copies straight to whatever document is open at the time. You can copy and paste single words, sentences or whole pages.
*** Great for accessing frequently used text such as your signature.
*** Can apply Hotkeys. Being able to assign hotkeys to frequently-used text speeds things
up even futher.
– Right click on clipboard entry/ choose properties/ assign hotkey/ select your preference/ press OK
– Simply copy your signature into ClipMagic and you can retrieve it with the use of the hotkey.
*** You can easily find the URL from which you copied the text
– highlight the clip/ look for launch button above – blue globe icon/ click on that and up will
come the site you want.
*** You can categorise your clips for easy finding later.
*** Can also store images.
Now, there are many more great features available. These are just the ones I am discovering at the present time.
