ClipÓ.Vu - New and more powerful products available here

Windows Gadgets platform has been discontinued by Microsoft - the future are Desktop and Modern Windows applications. I decided to react on this development and rewrote the whole code base from bottom up. The result is a set of new products marketed as ClipÓ.Vu Clipboard Manager. For the time being ClipÓ.Vu for Windows Desktop is by far the most important one. It overcomes the old gadget in many aspects and it will be further developed.

Go and check it yourself. This is our new website

Others Opinion Caption
Here are few examples what others think about this gadget.

Gadget Introduction Caption
The main purpose of this gadget is to save your time. It extends Windows Clipboard with a new dimension - time. You can simply reuse previous clipboard contents. You can also build a customized collection of your often pasted contents. You can easily timestamp your documents or remarks.

The gadget is compatible with Windows Sidebar running on almost every Windows Vista machine.

Clipboard History Caption
Upto 999 clipboard contents could be stored in the Clipboard History. The history is being built automatically - every Ctrl+C, Ctrl+Insert, etc. is monitored and stored. Once you realize you need the content you used a minute, an hour, a day or even a month ago, you can do it by clicking the corresponding line in the Clipboard History.

Use the filter at the bottom of the flyout list - your search will be incredibly fast. After you click the history item it will be copied back to the clipboard and you can paste it to your document (Ctrl+V, Shift+Insert, mouse+Paste).

Favorite Clips Caption
Have you ever noticed you repeatedly enter the same text again and again? Do not waste your time with searching or re-creating the same content and use Favorite Clips. You can store whatever clipboard content as a favorite clip and reuse it later by clicking the appropriate favorite line.

Timestamps Caption
Userful tool for marking your texts with current date and time in whatever format.

Use 'Create timestamp pattern' button and spend some time on understanding how to create custom timestamp patterns. After you created your pattern you can use Timestamps tab in the flyout window or the 'time' button on the main gadget.

Image Support Caption
Clipboard Manager gadget supports images since its version 2.0. Not only text based information but also images could be saved to history or marked as favorite clips. Use 'img', 'bmp', 'jpg', 'picture', 'image' or any similar string to filter out images on the flyout window.

Privacy Support Caption
Maybe you want the fully functional Clipboard History but you do not want to share any piece of information it carries. One of your options is to use 'Privacy mode'. If you choose this option, no information will be displayed directly on the main gadget area but only in flyout window. Nobody will be able to look over your shoulder. It cannot happen that you unintensionally beam some private related stuff during your Powerpoint presentation.
Another option how to save your privacy is to permanently delete items from Clipboard History. Delete an item by right-click and select 'delete'. To delete the whole Clipboard History use the 'clear' button.
