Have you ever copied a string of text to your clipboard and suddenly remembered, that you had previously copied something else which you had not pasted; so its gone…..
Ever wished the clipboard on your computer kept a log of all the text you copied to it, so you could have a history of the text you copied than having to manually go and find where you copied it from if you needed it again….
ClipCube is a handy software created by ZodCode
I prefer to draft my blog posts in Microsoft Word on my laptop and then Copy and Paste to the WordPress Gutenberg Editor.
I admit the Gutenberg Editor is a bit awkward to create long form content in, but it’s easy to do the final editing of a post as I can focus on one block at a time. I use the Copy and Paste function a lot and sometimes copying mistakes happen; overwriting my clipboard or totally forgetting about a paragraph that I had copied and meant to save in drafts for future reference and even cutting text instead of copying and realising I have saved the wrong copy; sometimes you wonder where your head is at because seriously…
This life-saver application will have your back if you write from your computer a lot.
Clip Cube is a super light application that runs in the background, barely noticeable and you can access it from the taskbar system tray.
- Keeps a searchable log of all the text you copied to clipboard arranged by date
- Filters and displays Link Urls that you copied sorted by date
- Lets you group and tag copied text
- Can export logged data
- Allows you to set preferences; such as the number of items you wish to keep.
The only extra feature I wish it had was if it could sync online and have a corresponding mobile phone application.
**On my mobile phone, I use TouchPal keyboard which has a built-in Clip Board
The app creators discontinued their website but you can download the file via my Google drive.
*Note: ClipCube has a file size of 1.21mb and is a portable app which means you do not need to install it to run it, just extract the folder from the ZIP file and run the application.
One might worry about how the app may expose sensitive things that you have been “Copying” well; you may want to periodically empty or clear the logs or maybe delete specific sessions. Just treat ClipCube as you would your Browsing History and Search History if you have no dead bodies there, you probably have nothing to worry with this too.
*The software seems to have had no further updates or anything since 2013 but hey maybe you don’t need to update something that’s perfect
Are there similar applications to this? I don’t know. I didn’t even know this existed until I saw it on someone else’s computer and I noticed how useful it was, got it and now I cant imagine how I lived without it.
Do you know or use anything similar to this?
Windows now comes with a Clip Board function which also serves as an Emoji and Symbols Pack. You can access it by pressing [Windows key] + [V]
By default it will be turned off so you will have to enable it first.
Note: The Clipboard automatically gets cleared when you shutdown the computer.
