Dear Computer Lady,
Sometimes when working on the computer I have the need to copy and paste several items several different times.
With all the technology in our computers I would think someone has come up with a way to save several copies (example: Copy 1, Copy 2, Copy3 etc.) and be able to paste them over and over whichever is needed. Is there a way to do this?
You have just described one of my favorite software programs, ClipMate by Thornsoft Development, Inc.
When I upgrade to a new computer, this is one of the very first programs that I install, and I use it almost every day. (occasionally I don’t use my computer for a day, that is probably the only time I don’t use ClipMate)
Not only does Clipmate remember everything I copy, it also allows me to save collections of clips that I use over and over again (a huge help when working with code)
Another great feature is that I can copy a large chunk of data, then paste it in small chunks. This is also helpful when working with code like HTML.
When writing this article, I use clipmate when I copy your question, then I copy the question with the answer, use ClipMate to insert line breaks, I often use it to spell check my article, and to automatically remove characters that I have in the online version, but don’t want to send to the newspaper. This job would easily take twice as long without ClipMate.
So, head on over to www.thornsoft.com and download a trial copy of ClipMate. You will be glad you did.
