Ditto - clipboard extender from SourceForge

review from ClifNotes, Mar 2007, permalink Clipboard Utilities

 

I simply refuse to use a PC for any length of time without a clipboard tool. When you have a good clipboard tool installed and running, you never have to worry about losing anything that you copy, cut or paste in Windows.

 

Until recently, I've been using one called clcl, and it works great. One day on a whim, I decided to see what the folks at SourceForge had in the way of clipboard utilities and I found this tool called "Ditto". After reviewing the features and giving it a brief try, Ditto is now my favorite.

 

Ditto is an open source program and has an active forum if you need help. I also noticed that they are working on a portable version and I've already found that simply copying Ditto's program folder still allows it to run on a thumb drive. However, it still stores it's default settings in the registry and it doesn't support relative drive paths to it's clipping data base.

 

Ditto's search feature is what really sold me on using it. When Ditto is activated by it's hot key, it displays the most recent clips and is also in a default search mode. As soon as you start typing, Ditto searches all of it's clippings for the characters you enter and displays the most likely clippings that contain those characters.

 

When you combine the search feature with Ditto's ability to permanently store your favorite text snippets and you have a real time saving database full of answers right at your finger tips.
