Downloaded a trial version and DO agree that it is unstable (at least on my system 10.5.8), especially when using on a system with spaces enabled. I have set this app to be in every space, but it doesn't always comply. Docked version works better with spaces compared to the floating window. Although with the docked version, the very first clip on top is cut off on the top so that the clip contents are not visible (text). Also, clicking on the Clipboard in the menu bar does NOT show or hide the dock (like it says it should in the Clipboard preference pane). Actually it worked once.

Things missing from this app:

No ability to label clips. If you want to use it to save passwords or account numbers, there is no way to identify which account/password you might be using because all you will see is the clip contents. Not very useful when you have a multitude of accounts and passwords. All you will see are numbers and letters, so if you haven't memorized all your information (which is actually why one might want an app like this in the first place), it's of little value.

Floating window does not actually float on top of other windows, so if you are using it in conjunction with another application and going back and forth to copy and paste the contents of your saved clips, the clip window will disappear every time you click on the application you are trying to paste into... a nuisance really.

No ability to use the dock mode on the top or bottom of your desktop. You can only select right or left sides.

It seems that you can only DRAG items onto the clip pane when it is a floating window, and Not when it is used in Dock mode.

This is not that big a deal, but in the preference window, when selecting any of the different function tabs, they do not darken or look like they have been selected, consequently you don't really know which specific preference pane you are in.

Needs some work.

The interface is really nice, but the rest...
I don't think the app is worth the 15$.
I tried it out a half year ago and it's still not very stable and free of bugs.
Think twice before you buy this app.

Today´s update did not fix the problems the earlier version had, but instead introduced so many new problems that it almost got useless. Too bad.

seems currently the best option out of those kind of apps available.

Having issues with clipboard display when using grid or dock option, otherwise great.

My update doesn't show unless you click Reply-1 so I'm posting another review and update.

** Update ** Everyone please note that the developer contacted me directly and sent a fixed update of the program in less than 24 hours! That is first class service and greatly appreciated. The program is running right now on my laptop flawlessly. I'm using with some heavy graphic files and it is rock solid. Works great with Spaces. Great app, and more importantly great developer.

** Another Update ** I've been using the app all weekend. Performed perfectly. I didn't know I needed this app until using it, now I can't stand not having it on my work computer. One of those must haves. Ahh, it's just $.

Just purchased. It WILL NOT start on my MacBookPro. It crashes immediately. I just paid the $15.00. There is no message board on their site to troubleshoot either. This is outrageous. Why ruin your reputation like this?

Any chance that your company or anyone else can make a clipboard program that will allow saved notes (clips) to be used on both the mac and pc sides? In other words is there any way to copy notes into your clipboard program (on the mac side). Then boot into windows (on the bootcamp, pc side) and read the same notes? Or even to make new notes on the pc side and then be able to go back to the mac side and read them?

Umm... That should be easy, except that we have never used Clipboard Evolved. So we don't know what 'saved notes' are (how files are saved with what format or with just one database?).

To the developper,

Please, try to find someone to transltate it in French or keep it in English only instead of using Google translator. For example, the way Quick Paste menu is translated means Quick Pasta in French. :-D

I think this version went over the deep end in the GUI department..

pasteboard applications should be minimal and unobtrusive.

For CE 3.0 perhaps

The Mac hot key system clip of a section of the screen.. that does not seem to paste into CE ?

Otherwise, there's lots to like here.
