What is Clip-IT?

Clip-IT is a software utility to put predefined text strings on your Windows clipboard. This makes those text available for copy/paste operations in other programs: just select a predefined text and paste it in another window by pressing the CTRL+V keyboard combination.

I wrote Clip-IT because I often have to work with text strings that are always the same. Because Clip-IT uses the Windows clipboard it is almost compatible with every windows software.

Clip-IT will add an icon to your system tray. This is the area in your Windows task bar, next to the system clock. Right clicking this icon will open a context pop-up menu which will show all the texts you defined in Clip-IT. You can put any text on the clipboard by just clicking an item from the pop-up menu.

The pop-up menu actually doesn't show the complete text strings: it only shows labels to describe each text string. You can define these labels yourself. The text Strings can have a size of up to 1024 characters. I introduced the system with labels to avoid a very wide pop-up menu.

Double clicking the tray icon will open a window where you can add or edit new text strings. Here you will see a list with all created labels and the belonging text strings.

The application automatically starts when Windows starts. For this the setup applications adds a shortcut to the start menu's 'startup' folder. If this bothers you, the shortcut can simply be removed from the startup folder.
