I used ClipMenu for years now. As it's no longer under active development for years, I'm in panic every time a new version of MacOS is released and ClipMenu eventually stops working. So with every new MacOS Version I searched for an alternative with no results. Yesterday I searched again because of Mountain Lion and I found Scrapbook. And I immediately noticed, that this app is in it's basic usage concept quite similar to ClipMenu, which is great. ClipMenu and Scrapbook are both focused on functionality and not just eyecandy, a perfect unobtrusive and powerful tool for the ambitious user. I would recommend every ClipMenu user to take a look at Scrapbook, as ClipMenu has no future and Scrapbook is under active development and is very powerful. In most parts more powerful than ClipMenu: Sharing Clips via Bonjour is just amazing, for example. Still there are some minor things that could be improved in the eye of an long-time ClipMenu-user, but it's definitely not worth to go into detail here or to reduce my rating, as it's really already great as it is and definitely deserves a true 5 star rating from me. You see, I'm totally thrilled by this app. By the way: It's too cheap, should be 9,99 or so...

The bottom of the picture or half of the picture gets cut off on all the Applications, not just this one.

Not ready for Mountain Lion! I bought this program as a potential replacement for ClipMenu, which is apparently no longer being actively developed. I thought, with a program in active development, I would be more prepared for the future. Well, as a matter of fact, ClipMenu always worked - and still does so in Mountain Lion - Scrapbook does not fully work in ML. First, the Help function only flickers and is unusable. Second, when a "clip" is selected in the menu, it is NOT being pasted at the cursor position. There is a preference for it, which does not work in ML. Maybe it does so in older systems, but not now. This is the ONE most important function of such a program. It does what is needed, though, when the clip is selected in the black "Scrapbook window". But why then are the clips also shown in the drop down menu? Maybe it works with some modifier key, but why doesn't it work as you'd expect? Furthermore, the program is overloaded with functions instead of being focussed on what really matters. The "idle timer" has nothing to do with the program's purpose - why is it there, and why can't we at least hide it from the menu? Why do the "Bonjour" entries still show up in the menu when the function has been switched off in the preferences? Why are "options" and "preferences" separated?

I agree with the last paragraph - why the extra functions having to do with machine sleep. But I've used the program for several months, and it works great in 10.8. There are some bugs - it says it has a lot of contextual menu functions (Ctrl-click), but they don't work for me. But if those functions did not exist I would not miss them.

Dear Frankof, thanks for your reply. We had a lot of some trouble with sandboxing ... Apple needed a lot of time to figure out that there is a bug in Xcode! But after all we upgraded Scrapbook for Mountain Lion and Retina Display. The bad news is that we had to remove some features because of Apple's sandboxing! We tried everything but there is no way. You don't need the Idle Timer? What do you suggest how we could improve it? Please feel free to send us an email. Thanks a lot. @Reegor: We cannot find any issues with ctrl-click. Please send us an email so we can figure out the problem. Thanks

I agree with both of you guys prevent sleep function is not needed. Now that I upgraded to 10.8.3 its causing some kind of hang up at shutdown. i see "de.ariessoulutions.Scrapbook.GNTPClentService" & "0x7fb963c36520.anonymous.de.ariessolutio" saying its dirty or something. I am running version 1.3.2 auto pasting feature is needed. I know apple is stickler for sandbox but perhaps there is way around it. they can offer use some kind of warning at first instance of auto pasting like The unarchiver warns you about files being extracted or Movist does when you attempt to play movies from other then default locations. alternatively offer un-sandboxed version directly on their website. I am just saying I know mplayer x opted out of apple store cause of sandbox issues, I am not saying these guys should do the same. all i ask is some kind of work around.

@Adarkenigma We will investigate the hang up. If you have more information please send us an e-mail. thx. Apple is very strict! We tried hard but couldn't find a way how to implement pasting! Every time we got rejected and so we decided to update it without it. We are very sorry about this. Right now a non-MAS version is on the way :) Please stay tuned ...

Woks fine. You just have to hit Open in the drop down Menu to see what's there instead of it just opening when clicking Menu.

I recently purchased Scrapbook (it's a bargain at $0.99 and I collect clipboard utilities...). It's very easy to use and in normal use "just works" and then gets out of your way. However, it also has many extra features (search with expandable search criteria, customizable fonts and colors, editing of clips, etc.) and is very customizable if you want to "play." For example, you can set up "Snippets," which let you define folders to keep certain clips you use a lot. Scrapbook can also use Bonjour to sync clippings between computers. One powerful feature of Scrapbook is it's ability to define and use Javascript-based "filters." These filters operate on the selected clipping and there are a number of supplied filters. The supplied filters do things like trim leading and trailing white space, convert to upper or lower case, extract filenames from the clipping, and lots more. Finally, I should mention that the support is great. I had one suggestion and then later reported a small bug. In both cases the developer replied within a few hours at most. I'm told that the suggestion has been incorporated and the bug found and fixed in the new version that's due to be released soon! All in all a great clipboard manager at a bargain price!

Es scheint ein Problem mit 'Help' zu sein; wenn ich erst 'Welcome to Scrapbook!' clicke und dann den Innhalt von irgend etwas, dann kann ich nur ein kurzen Augenblick sehen was drin steht und sofort verschwindet er!

It would be insanely great if Scrapbook would synchronize between hosts automatically--such as via a DropBox folder. I move between Macs throughout the day and don't like having to manually send/receive clippings. If I need a clipping from earlier in the day, I just want it to be there--no manual interaction, no hunting for which scrapbook it's on. Often a clipping I need is even on a Mac that's powered down. Of course if a cloud storage service like DropBox is to be used, clippings must be strongly encrypted with a private key to keep even DropBox administrators' eyes out.

Scrapbook is the most full-featured clipboard manager I have come across. It works well, their customer support is excellent, and the price is right (free, at least when I got it). I recommend it!

I appreciate Scrapbook a lot, but I am afraid I need some help understanding something. I can't figure out how to actually use the filters. I've read the Scrapbook help, which gives an example of a filter, and it's pretty obvious what they are supposed to do (reverse the characters in a string, for example) - but I've been clicking, copying, and pasting in various combinations for 45 minutes trying to get that to work, and I have not been able to get a string to reverse even once! Can you please give me an example of how to actually apply a filter? As in, what needs to be highlighted, what needs to be left-clicked / right-clicked, where should the reversed string be visible, etc. Thanks!

Hi Mithralas, to use a filter you have two options: 1. you can click on the menubaricon and go to Filter and choose for example the Reverse filter from the Strings folder. This will reverse the FIRST clip of your scrapbook. 2. or you open the Scrapbook window, right mouse click on one of your clips and choose Filter->Strings->Reverse. When the filter is finished it will create a new clip in the Scrapbook. Hope this helps? If you still have problems please send an email to "support[at] ariessolutions .de" Thanks a lot.

Update, about 2 weeks after my original post: The response from Aries did not resolve the problem I was having, so I contacted them by email as they suggested in their reply. They were VERY responsive to my concerns. As it turned out, I had uncovered a bug. Within a week, I noticed an updated version of Scrapbook on the Mac app store, which fixed the bug. I was very impressed with the interest they showed in pursuing my problem, and with their swift resolution of it. This is what excellent customer support looks like.

I love this app. Great start. I love the convenience of having snippets directly available in the same window as clippings. Javascript text filters are interesting to have available too. A user-defined hotkey will be a welcome addition. Also, the ability to exclude certain apps from copy/cut capture would be handy. Perhaps there could even be a hot key available for cut/copy without including in the clippings list. (like option-cmd-c or -x) Anyway, I'm enjoying this.

I take that back—Scrapbook does already have tha bility to ignore clipboard events from specific apps. I just wasn't looking close enough.
