Unfortunately, the product doesn't work with Adobe InDesign (CS6). No matter which clipping is selected, it pastes the most recent one (which is exactly what the standard Copy/Paste does anyway.) I imagine that this is caused by InDesign itself, which often doesn't play well with non-Adobe software, but it makes the iClipboard purchase pointless for me, as pretty much all my work is in InDesign.

To be fair, this is Adobe's fault. We have the same problem with iClip, too.

Have tried all the others keep returning to this one works well the key stroke pop up window to keep on screen for heavy copying and pasting works really well I don't use the paste blaster or the slide in shelf and have these turned off. It is fast I have the storage limit to 10 clips.

I won't give it a star rating, but I own this and the main reason I don't use it is the heavy-handed interface. It's just too much and needs to be simplified. The fact that every single clipping has to have a row of icons under it is just interface overkill and slows production down rather than speeds it up.

Same reason I keep going back to pth pasteboard. I wanted to like this app because of the slide out drawer and other features, but just too cumbersome for me.

Overall, I've been pretty happy with iClipboard, but the changes to version 4 were a mixed bag. Some of the changes were great, while others were a step backwards.

Allowing the use of multiple "projects" is a great idea, but in practical terms it really doesn't work. When you're busy working on projects, you don't have time to think about changing your iClipboard settings every time, so ultimately you end up with a whole lot of unrelated clips in one place.

That wouldn't be so bad if it worked like older versions, where you could protect clippings. But removing that option to permanently protect clippings was a huge step backwards. Now you have to delete all or manually remove what you don't want. That's really bad. Manual removal takes way too long. One saving grace is that when you name your clippings they aren't automatically deleted when the time limit is reached. But it's not as good as it used to be in that regard.

Clippings don't always work. Far too often I've had to click the "Edit" link and re-save an older clipping before it will work again. Doesn't matter if it is set to plain text or rich. But in terms of how the app handles plain vs. rich text, version 4 is an improvement.

The newer version does a better job of memory management, with much more stability. But it is a bit slow overall. Even deleting clips takes at least 2-3 seconds each (on a new Mac Pro no less), a lifetime in computer time. When deleting clips with complex formatting or foreign characters it can take up to 8 seconds, which I consider unacceptable. And during the deletion process, iClipboard freezes up so you can't scroll or do anything else in the list until those seconds are up. This is cumbersome.

I am giving it 2 stars mainly because of the customer service (or lack of). I have emailed them 3 times in the past month with a very simple questions, and yet no answer. and that's to bad, because I do like working with it. However I REFUSE to shell out 29.99 if I cant get any support.

I’ve also tried a lot of such utilities and so far, this is working well. I had a slight issue and tech support was excellent. Like others, I was a fan if iClip but it is apparently dead. PHTPastboard was good if not ugly. I’m pretty happy with iClipboard and hope the developers continue to refine it.

Tried them all and keep coming back to this the current 4.10 really works well and reliable ram usage has gone down. Will go down more if the paste blaster is turned off. Mine sits around 20-30 meg ram. It is fast and having the shelf as a floating pallet with a key stroke is excellent for heavy duty pasting. I do a lot of graphic and text work and this had not let me down with the v paste problem fixed I give it 5 stars

Been using this ever since iClip was left to die.. (it was revived lately.. but I cannot see why i would give up iClipboard for iClip as it works perfectly). Not sure why this has gotten so many bad reviews... For many years I used CopyPaste.. then iClip.. then iClipboard since version 3. Never failed me. I'm a graphic designer/web designer.. I copy/paste all day-long..

POS. Clips are replicated multiple times -sometimes as many as five or six. I cannot reliably pull-down the menu bar. The company does not respond to requests for assistance. I cannot recommend under any circumstance at this time.

Nice attempt trying to fix "the problem that would cause the Edit Projects window to not work correctly if hiding was enabled in the iClipboard preference pane." Did any of your QCers try moving the mouse around randomly to see what happens?

Well I am still having problems after installing (1.0.2)
I have removed the (.plist) from Preferences and checked the iClipboard Preference Pane and it seems to be the problem. The iClipboard prefPane is only an alias ? Upshot is I still can't access iClipboard Preferences.

At the moment iClipboard is taking up the same amount of RSIZE ram ( 44Mb) as DevonThink Pro
and 2.99Gb of VSIZE ? ) Like the last reviewer I can't always access the clip I want - Seems to get stuck on first opening the iCilpboard tab - sporadic but still a problem.

My requests apart from resolving the issue with the applications preferences would be the ability to reduce the vertical screen space iClipboard takes up and the option of control clicking and removing multiple clips simultaneously. An option to move a clip into a different project rather than 'cut n' paste'. Lastly an automatic close tab option ( this may already exist but I can't access the preferences to be sure ? )

I am also getting a little weary of being an unrewarded Beta tester.

We'd love to track down and solve this problem. If you haven't already, would you mind submitting a support ticket for this issue on our website so we can investigate?

1) The iClipboard Preference pane is located inside the iClipboard application bundle so the alias you mention should actually point to this preference pane. You can see where it points by selecting the alias in the Finder and choosing File > Show Original. We should make sure it's point to a valid file.

2) Does the iClipboard Preference pane icon appear at the bottom of your System Preferences window?

3) When you attempt to open the iClipboard preference pane is anything logged to the Console?

Thanks,

-Adam

Well thank you for replying, I did as you said and control clicked on the alias - It didn't obviously point anywhere. I control clicked on the application and inside resources found the iClipboard Preference pane and made a new alias from it in the user Preference pane folder.

Now iClipboard's preferences still don't show in system preferences main pane or appear when I click the preferences option pull-down menu from within iCilpboard.

I can't get this thing to even work on my system. It took one clip and that was it. No more clips, no paste, no drag and drop, nada. I also don't like the fact that they have an easy way to buy the product but NO way to report problems. You have to sign up with their web site to ask any questions or report any trouble . I am doing that now and will report on the response i get.

Well this second ( 1.0.1 ) release seems better but now I can't get the preferences to show ( On clicking the preferences option no window - all other windows open, licensing etc..). I also noticed that RSIZE memory is about 28Mb but the VSIZE is a whopping 2.93 Gb what's that all about ?

The site seems to have been updated to show the difference between SOHO Notes and iClipboard which is a bit of a swindle for registered SOHO Notes users. They have less features and if they want iClipboards extras they have to pay for it and run it concurrently with SOHO Notes ( Chronos sticking it to their users ) Very disappointing customer care/public relations.

The copy function is automatically pasting into iClipboard for me. Is your iClipboard set to show "Pause" down at the bottom? When "Pause" is showing the clipboard is working...which is confusing; the naming of the button is meant to tell you to click the button if you want to stop iClipboard from capturing everything you copy. Similarly, if "Resume" is showing then the clipboard is NOT working but invites you to start copying again by clicking on the Resume button.

What I am finding is a delay in iClipboard responding to mouse-over and clicks to show the clip in detail. And also the categories only allow 2 entries (this is a bug that's supposed to be corrected very soon).

So after these rough spots are ironed out, iClipboard should be as good as we hope it will be.

Thanks for the reply. I'm not having any other problems besides the not being able to paste (which is enough). I don't mind the Pause button at the bottom, but I can see where it would throw you off.
