Clipdiary is much more than just a nicer clipboard to compete with your Windows utility. This powerful tool turns the Windows lame clipboard into a powerful database with a set of useful management tools. Clipdiary not only saves time to everyone who comes across with it — it has no space limitation and it is free to use, as long as you do not use it for commercial purposes.

Despite being a tool that you can master in just a few minutes, the program comes with a useful wizard that will show you how to make the most of it with just a few clear instructions and a couple of exercises. You are allowed to define your own hot keys, which is the default way to move across the various functions provided. Thus, a hot key of your choice will save a clip to Clipdiary, and a different one will paste it in the new document or wherever you want to copy it. Other key combinations will help you paste more than one clip just by selecting the previous or the next clip in the database, and other will let you paste it as plain text, pop up the clipboard history, etc.

Therefore, though Clipdiary has its own interface — i.e., the clipboard history and its own management tools — it won’t open unless you want it to. It will stay active in the background and will save everything you copy (from text to images and from entire files to webpages) and will keep it there until you decide you don’t need it anymore. Unlike the Windows clipboard, Clipdiary has no storage limitations (your available disk space is the only limit) and it can be used on any tool, instead of just in Microsoft Office tools.

The utility comes with a specific area for snippets — i.e., text fragments that you type in regularly — which you can even edit when required. This is not true for the clips you send to your clipboard database, though both types can be removed when no longer needed.

Finally, it is important to note that Clipdiary is free for those who install it at home and exclusively for private use. Other than that, you’ll be required to purchase a license, personal, business, or extended.

A very useful application. I always thought of finding such a program, but somehow always seemed that does not exist. But when one group advised me this, I was delighted. Maximum utility - at least, the cost of resources.
