ClipBuddy could be THE killer app as a clipboard extension software, but isn't.
It is most obviously a copy from the PC application "ClipMate", which is unfortunately not available under Mac OSX, and which has much more features than ClipBuddy, but all features ClipBuddy has.
I use ClipBuddy, version 2.10.4 since maybe half a year and I only use it, because I made a shortcut to force close and restart it. This is the only way to use this extremely buggy software.
The support is very friendly but totally incompetent.
I reported so many bugs, but nearly none of them ever were fixed.
There is also this great application "ClipMenu" which is unfortunately not anymore developed, but much more stable. I only use ClipBuddy instead, because it has this genius (but buggy) feature of preview with shortcut (coming from ClipMate).
The actual version 2.10.26 is worse than the 2.10.4 (less features, unstable as well).

Dear Clip Buddy:
Thank you for your concern .
I don't want to take the time .
Maybe it's my system ... maybe it's not
As I stated .
I loaded it on my system and then click the icon and it would not start .
Nothing
I look for software that simplifies my life not adds more maintenance to it.
Thank you
Duncan Adams

Has the Textexpander issue resolved? I keep trying a new version only to find that it still doesn't support it.

uttercrap ClipBuddy should be renamed ClipBUMMER. Total waste of time! got 1.65.3 from bitsdajour which worked fine for a few weeks now all i get is error message:

ClipBuddy quit unexpectedly.
Click Reopen to open the application again. Click Report to see more detailed information and send a report to Apple.

MAC OS X 10.8.2 MOUNTAIN LION

ADVICE > USERS: get clipmenu for now (needs a search function)

ADVICE > DEVELOPER: limited to hold only last 200 entries??? ive got 10,000 clips w/ clipmenu. all u need 2 do is copy/clone clipmagic/clipmate on win to mac and PRESTO perfect clipboard

you should give me free lifetime license for the suggestion!

After 6 weeks of playing with this product, I've decided it's the best clipboard manager of the many I've tried. Especially after the new feature that provides a rolling "node" of clipboard data that doesn't get loaded into custom nodes I've built. It's fast and gets in and out of the way quickly. I can see a large group of clips I've saved for boiler plate replies easily and the find is really useful.

What is the point of giving out a free license if it's going to be made invalid a few weeks later? This developer is a scam!!!

The non-upgradeable marketing approach that this company takes is atrocious. They claim in their giveaways and when their products are included in bundles that they are worth $X. Well the version that can be upgraded is worth $X. The version that quickly falls out of date and cannot be upgraded is basically a glorified trial version. I've stopped looking at anything this company ha to offer due to this horrible practice and sincerely advise you to do the same.

ClipBuddy's keyboard shortcut for it's history browser is CMD + H (⌘ H), which is Apple's default shortcut for hiding an app, and it seems to be system wide. So when you try to hide an app using the standard kb shortcut, ClipBuddy's history browser pops up instead.

I have notified the developer and they have said they will address the issue.

I would have given this program much higher mark if it supported one feature - ignore outputs from programs such as Textexpander. I wrote to the developers several times, but never heard back from them. It's too bad.

The suggestion to put TextExpander to ignore doesn't work. I wrote to the developer after it didn't work.

Everything was working fine until two days ago, now the app crashes when launching. Sent it to support but haven't heard back to a fix. Either something got corrupted or an update elsewhere is conflicting with Clipbuddy. I hope a fix comes soon as I use this everyday.

No reply a week later. Not a good sign. That said, I did a search for Clipbuddy, deleted every file on my HD. Reinstalled, entered serial number and all is OK now although I do have to rebuild all my templates. Something somewhere got corrupted.
