  • Great article, thank you so much for the list of clipboards. this is awesome and i can’t wait to try a couple. i wanted to ask if some of them remembered thier entries even after a reboot?

    i know that by nature a clipboard is only a working board for that session. i cant tell you though the number of timex i have wasted hours and hours making a reply or content, i copy to clipboard as a safeguard because some sites time out or reset the page if one piece of required info was not filled in. Bang, there goes my time intensive and thoughtful reply or info, sometimes even just a quick reply or entry and its gone. i try to paste from the clipboard as i purposly saved it there right? only to find that is gone or not working either.

    It can be so frustrating and time consuming.

    There are a couple entries you referenced saving for later use or permenant entries for multiple time usage or form filling etc, wondered if you knew if any would survive a reboot?

    Thanks again for a great article.
    Greg
