Testing, testing, testing... ArsClip is just so convenient, productive, agile, intuitive, effective... This long-rightClick way to show the PopUp is just so Killer, wow! This App rocks of course.

I think Arsclip makes all other clipboard utilities redundant, its that good. Could have a better name though.

Agree with Crid. Might have had some issues initially, but I use it regularly each day without issues. Its such a timesaver. And having the shortcut to pop up the menu is superb. Not seen any other clipboard utlities come close to this one.

I've used this heavily every day for several years. It's golden. Like most good software, there's a learning curve, but the flexibility and precision of this program rewards your effort.

Great program -- took a little getting used to but the ctrl+shift+z has saved me a lot of time and energy with lengthy copy-and-paste proceedures. One small negative: I couldn't get the "Form Mode" tool to work. Its supposed to simulate a "tab" click after every paste so you can quickly enter in form information (name, address, date, etc).

3.1.2 has a bug which can stop you from copy/pasting files in explorer. The next public beta has a fix, but for now I'm back to ClipX + PureText for my clipboard managing/text format stripping needs.

It kept accusing itself of breaking the clipboard chain, whatever that meant. Weird program.

I had been using another clipboard application but got sick of it because it wouldn't retain my permanent items and I would have to re-enter them every time I started the program. ArsClip seemed the perfect solution. It has all the features of the other application plus even better ones - especially the Accelerator Keys function. Unfortunately, I have a major problem with it.

It doesn't insert text in file/folder names - it replaces the entire file/folder name. And in the case of filenames, it replaces the file extension as well. (No I do not have the filename highlighted - it makes no difference either way.)

For example: I edit a lot of image files. During the various editing stages I will rename the files by appending different words (BlueDucks.jpg becomes BlueDucks_resized.jpg, then may become BlueDucks_resized_edit.jpg). If I use ArsClip to paste _resized it doesn't append - it replaces the entire filename with _resized.

Seeing as this is the main reason I need a clipboard application, it makes ArsClip virtually hopeless to me. Unfortunately this didn't happen with the program I was previously using so I may have to go back to using it. I really, really, really hope this may be addressed in the future because everything else about ArsClip is great!!!

Also, I get a "Failed to set hotkey" error every time the program starts even though the hotkey has been set and works. Not a biggie though as it doesn't impare performance.
