  • 1. Why is Clipà.Vu better than having a document opened on the side?
     

    Short answer: It is faster, organized, permanent, searchable, shareable across your computers, etc..

    Long answer: You do not need to copy-paste all the time, you only paste. It allows to switch contents there and back quickly. Another big advantage is that it stores the entries for weeks and months. It collects the entries automatically. It is extremely easy and fast to find the individual entries. You can paste by double-clicking or keyboard shortcuts (Desktop version). It offers often used favorites and other tools. Often you are not aware now you will need some content in the future but Clipà.Vu saves it for you. Often it saves content you otherwise lose because the original program crashes. It enables clip ‘nicknaming’ to make it even easier identify and use. It supports images. It allows to share your clipboards across your computers and mobile devices. Etc, etc... please watch our intro video or read help to learn more.

    Try it out yourself - you will get the idea very quickly!

  • 2. Why that unusual name? What does "Clipà.Vu" mean?
     

    It is a play on the words "Clipboard" and "Dejà Vu". It should evoke the fact that you already have had some content in your clipboard before. We make sure you can easily bring it back in front of your eyes and re-use it.

  • 3. Clipà.Vu Internet access
     

    When and how (often) does Clipà.Vu access the Internet?

    First of all please read our Privacy Policy

    If you switched on Cloud Sync feature we recommend to read its dedicated page, this article corresponds mainly to the "Performance data" chapter.

     

    Below we list the sources of Internet connection Clipà.Vu connect to Internet for these purposes:

    1) Analytics. We measure the usage of individual features, we look how many users use which version and some other very standard analytics tasks.

    2) Bug reporting. Every time the app crashes it sends us an info why that happen. Usually we try to fix within hours. Sometimes we do not leave the app crash completely in the uncritical case of some subsystem failure (not to interrupt your work and disturb you) but still the app sends bug report called "Warning". These we try to fix within few days.

    3) Licensing info. In case you activate new license the app reaches Clipà.Vu Licensing Server.

    4) New version available check. Happens once shortly after the app start.

    5) News check. Similar to version check above where we would get chance to inform you about any important news. From our side is this feature used very rarely.

    6) In case you enabled Cloud Sync feature then obviously the app communicates with your cloud provider. Of course the data communicated is encrypted as explained here.

    7) On very few occasions the app "pings" google.com address - just to verify your Internet connection is really working.

     

    You are always welcome to use some verification tools like the ones recommended here.

    In the improbable case you discover a connection not listed above please inform us on [email protected].

  • 7. How to make Clipboard Manager gadget "Always on top"?
     

    Right-click on the world 'filter' (bottom left) to get the default gadget context menu and select "Always on top". We apologize for the fact that this feature got bit hidden but it was a necessary compromise because the gadget platform does not support custom context menu out-of-the box.
