ScrapX is a multi-media scrapbook built for Mac OS X. It stores, displays, organizes, and dispenses content that is in text, image, movie and sound formats. Supported types include: animated GIF, BMP, EPS, GIF, HTML, JPEG, PDF, PICT, PNG, RTF, RTFD, TIFF, URL, plain text, movie, sound, and (classic) sound resource. Place content in ScrapX via the Clipboard using copy and paste or drag-and-drop, or drop clippings or files in supported formats onto a scrapbook. When content is dragged from Safari, the URL of the content (if there is one) and the URL and title of the Web page are captured, and the URLs can be easily opened from ScrapX. more...

What's New

Version 1.3.5 inserts "promised files" when images are dragged from Safari or other Web browsers, and it automatically strips duplicate and redundant types from new items. As a result, the sizes of new items created by dragging from a Web browser are reduced significantly.

Other enhancements include:

  • The ability to export an item by holding down the "option" key as you drag it to the more...

Well this still works but the links to the developer's web site and the download don't work. Such a shame as it was a really nice piece of shareware. Oh well it works for now.

Useful application, indeed. It doesn't try to do too much, it does just a few simple things really well, and I like that about this application in this age of bloatware.

If you would like to have a handy storage container to collect texts and graphics off the web for research, store frequently used text phrases and other miscellaneous things you frequently drop to other documents, it is an excellent utility for the job.

I paid for the application after 15 minutes of use. Very nice and versatile.

Succinct.

Thank you.

I used the scrapbook all the time in OS 9 and was disappointed not to have it availble in OS X. I love ScrapX! I've tried some of the other OS X scrapbook apps, but this is my favorite. Plus, the support is excellent!

I'd give ScrapX five stars. It's a great replacement for Apple's old scrapbook. It's much more powerful but still simple and easy to use.

I was a beta-tester in the development of v1.3, and I'm delighted to see the ability to create and edit text. So now I have a note pad as well.

I agree with one statement by Anonymous: "no editing is possible within the scrap(book)." ScrapX was designed to store and dispense content, and to do those things exceptionally well. (However, editing capability will be added to the next major release of ScrapX because there have been requests for it.)

Anonymous is wrong when he/she says that all of the text within ScrapX is handled as images. It is not. Text placed in ScrapX remains text and is fully editable when moved to a application that edits text. And the content of text items can be searched and used to sort items in a ScrapX scrapbook.

To be honest, I'm not sure how to interpret the statement: "importation of files from the former ScrapIt OS9 software is not usable (the order of the files is changed and no change is possible)." Importing scrapbooks from ScrapIt OS9 into ScrapX using the "Import Classic SB..." command results in a ScrapX scrapbook in which items are fully functional. That is, the items behave exactly like those placed directly into ScrapX. In tests that we have done, the order of items in the new scrapbook is the same as that in the ScrapIt scrapbook. In any case, items can be reordered by sorting the scrapbook or manually (by dragging thumbnails).

If Anonymous would like to offer suggestions about how ScrapX scrapbooks could be made easier to use and how they could be arranged more conveniently, I would be interested.

Much less efficient than what existed on OS9 (eg ScrapIt):
- all the texts, whatever the format and the software they come from, are managed as images. Therefore no editing is possible within the scrap.

- importation of files from the former ScrapIt OS9 software is not usable (the order of the files is changed and no change is possible).

Access to the scraps is uneasy and their arrangement very inconvenient.

ScrapX is a scrapbook for Mac OS X and should be compared to other scrapbook apps. It was not designed to be a notebook.
