|I have been using it for 3 years now. It works great and doesn't take up too much memory. All it does is create a clipboard that saves all the Ctrl - C copies you do and when you need them you just click on the systray icon, click the copy you want to use currently and then paste it into your document. Then go back and get the next one. (further information...) |
