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 Finder.
  • "Quick Memo Find", which allows "on-the-fly" searches of the Memo field.
  • A progress indicator for insertion of files.
  • The ability to drag one or more images from iPhoto to a scrapbook.
  • Automatic creation of the Memo from content of text items.
  • Speed improvements resulting from elimination of memory leaks.
  • Also, fixed a bug with searching PDF content and a bug with auto-saving when a PDF was the current item.

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.

on my dual 1.8 G5 the app refuses to launch, no error messages it just ties to open then promptly quits again!

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 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.

A little plain for my taste. The way the pane's open a close is a little annoying. I prefer Scrapbook managers such as Alepin (same price), or MacJournal or NoteBook 2.5 (not to be confused with the one from Circus Ponies), or DevonThink.

A nice replacement to Apple's Scrapbook.

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. Display, re-order, search and sort scrapbook items. To dispense content, copy and paste or drag-and-drop to a document, export to a file, or create a clipping. ScrapX will open Classic and ScrapIt scrapbooks.

ScrapX 1.3 is localized in English and French. Individual, Family, Multiple, and Educational Licenses available.

Possible Uses:
  • Import the content you have compiled in classic scrapbooks and continue to use it in Mac OS X.
  • Organize content that you use frequently: paragraphs for form letters, signatures, images, and graphics (headers and signatures) for faxes.
  • Create Internet scrapbooks with visual Web page bookmarks. When an image is dropped from Safari the title and URL of the Web page and the link URL (if any) are captured.
  • Store content related to particular projects: emails, Web URLs, news stories, cartoons, music, digital photos, etc.
  • Store and display statements and confirmations in PDF format that you receive from your bank or brokerage. When running under Panther even PDF content can be searched.
  • Gather and organize project materials. Use the new slideshow feature to test alternative orders of presenting materials, then copy and paste or drag-and-drop content to word processing, image editing, and other applications to publish it.
