iClip is the premier multiple-clipboard and scrapbook tool that enables you to keep a history of almost anything you copy, instead of only the last thing.

iClip was designed to be accessed as simply as the Mac's Dock: just move your cursor to the side of the screen and iClip pops out for instant use.

Get things into and out of iClip with hotkeys, drag-and-drop, or just 1-click.

Organize your stored clips into multiple sets and have them ready to paste in an instant.

Very convenient and versatile. Nice design. But I get some very bizarre behaviors, like the clip contents being written over by some random clipboard content, while the visible content of the clip remains the same. My workaround is to 'edit' the clipping text by opening the clipping in the bin, copying it and then re-pasting it back into the bin. I'm sure this is not how it's supposed to work. And if it did work right, I'd def give it a higher rating.

Be sure to shoot us an email with more details (steps to reproduce). It's possible another application is also manipulating the clipboard contents at the same time.

There are a few more fairly hidden additions in 5.1.1!

See iClip Help, esp. "Preferences" (-> look for "More Options….") and "Miscellaneous" (-> "Sharing Clippings" and "Shortcuts").

iClip can now also remember more than one file if you select and Copy files in Finder.

And to rearrange items in a Clip Set, you can not only swap items as before but also move them between two items now.

Hey LVDoc,

Do you know how to register the Media Catalog Software? If you have a serial number handy it would help a lot. Thanks for anything you can do

I use iClip as a repository of often used scripts, data and complex commands for different systems I have to manage (NetApp, PowerShell (copy on Mac, paste in Windows VM), Routers etc.). For that, it's the time saver no. 1 for me.
The developer is very responsive.

I have used this in OS X 10.5, 10.6 and now in 10.7.5 Lion = all good for me. I am running it on a MacPro 2,1 = ymmv.

Sometimes it pops up when I move my pointer too far, that's just a minor aggravation.

Now I only turn it off if I watch full screen video so it doesn't pop up. [I may try it with screen captures, but that is not really important to me]

When I do not have it activated, I usually miss having it ready.

I recommend testing a demo first, but it is an excellent add-on app for me with lots of options built in.

We might have a better behavior for the sometimes unwanted popping up coming. It'll be optional and will open iClip only if you hold the mouse still at the edge for a brief time. Long enough so that iClip won't show if you move the mouse around at the edge but short enough to make you not wait for it if you need it to appear. We're still experimenting with it. If you like a peek, sign up with http://macdeveloper.net, where we'll soon run a a new beta cycle.

I've bought this app twice and it's been dropped twice!!! It's been six months and it still doesn't work on Retina displays. I used to use it everyday. What a waste of money. They haven't touched it since June. I'm so sick developers that do this. I want my money back. NOT FAIR!

I don't understand, we haven't dropped iClip. Plenty of work is being done on iClip.

It's true that we're not able to bring retina graphics to iClips at this point. When we acquired the app and brought it back to life, we couldn't have have anticipated Retina graphics.

Beyond that, the app works wonderfully on Lion and Mountain Lion and we continue to add new features.

Mainly because of some unfavourable comments about CopyPaste Pro (which I do not have any problems with at all and having used it for many years) I looked at all the alternates. iClip looks to be an excellent app but purely personal, I find the icons in the left,right,up or down menu choice to be rather intrusive and I feel that perhaps a menubar window would suit some users. I dont wish to detract from what is obviously a well written and thought out clipboard manager and I offer this suggestion as critique rather than criticism.

Can you be more specific? We are well aware of the rather unusual look of iClip's window, and are working on an alternative theme for it. But what do you refer to, exactly? Do you mean the 3 icons (clip, gear, "?") or do you mean something else?

Its a bit hard to describe but rather that the pop out windows seem to be intrusive into the desktop as a whole. Looking at Copy paste Pro's idea of having two buttons on the desktop, a historic button and an archive button together with a menubar item seems to make the app join rather than overwhelm the desktop. Even a Click on the desktop like finder pop may be an alternative. I guess what I'm trying to say, if it makes sense, is that the current way that the clips pop out is just so overwhelming. In a better way of saying it, whatever method you choose it should complement the finder not take it over. I hope that makes sense. Good Luck!

I have tried dozens (in trial mode) and this just works for me. Handles vector files, keeps different sets of bins and you adjust where it sits on the screen and how deep it records. Plus, it converts text to plain text. Thank you for bringing this back.

Suggested use: I use sets to keep brand logos and sub brand logos and then they are instantly available to me in illustrator, inDesign, Photoshop, Keynote and many more in their vector form.

Caution: InDesign is a bad citizen! If you store a clipping from InDesign with iClip and later want to paste it back into InDesign, it'll not work. At least not when I tried this in late 2011. Maybe Adobe has fixed this in the mean time. Can you confirm this?

Back in the day, iClip was one of THE premier programs of its kind. A lot of people were frustrated at its lack of development and a lack of responsiveness from the developer. This new developer, I think, chose wisely in taking over this program. There are others on the market, but this one has quite a few features and an active developer who's responsive to customers. He's helped me several times over the past few months.

I've never liked multi-clipboards Apps, but I had a big project that required lots of repetitive pasting. iClip saved the day. It stayed out of the way as I worked, but sprang into view, with my several clips, on mouse-over. Very quick and intuitive. By selecting "edit," I could pop-open and tweak or grab just parts of clips. Optional titles help identify appropriate clips among several similar items. Worked perfectly. Bravo.

Rohnnyb had trouble on 12 Aug 2005
This version hogs my processor. I left my computer on all day, and when I went up this evening, my processor was full capacity. I checked with Activity Monitor, and the culprit was iClip and I had to force quit it to get back my computer. This is the first time I've experienced this with iClip, and I have been a very satisfied registered user for over a year. I love the app, but can't afford to have it hog the processor...

I have a B&W souped with with an 800 mhz ZIF, 1 gb RAM, and an ATI Radeon Mac Edition (PCI) graphics card. Am using 10.4.2.

(I know, it's probably my fault!)

Hi Rohn,

This is the first I'm hearing of any problem like this occurring. Please report this problem directly so that we can get a better idea of what could be happening on your system.
