Hi There!

I am looking for an alternative to comfort software clipboard manager pro.. Features I need:

Clipboard that will take at least 30 entries and will copy pictures, text, links, webpages etc..

Simple Access to that history and ability to select and paste historical items.

Ability to assign text to keys... CTRL+ALT+T to paste text I have assigned.

Good support or active  community forums

Configurable hotkeys.. 



Things I would like:

Ability to share clipboard among machines (Home PC and Work PC to share Clipboard) Or have multiple Clipboards.. 1 shared and 1 local

EASY and SIMPLE Macro recording...


Needs to be compatible with XP+ 

Recommendations appreciated.

Hi,

I have been using clipX (with Win7 but I believe it is compatible with XP).
Even though the UI looks a bit "dated", it works really well.

Yah I am not sure why they don't update the look and feel of these apps, I see a few of them all look like they were made in 1995!

Will not stab you

I too use ClipX but it doesn't do everything that was listed in the op.

Ditto looks good.
