I'm wondering what clipboard programs anyone here is using. E.g. when replying to long posts, you may want to quote parts of a post and intersperse your replies. I find I need to do this a lot. I also need to save quite a few links and repaste them in one at a time.

There are many clipboard programs that will temporarily save and keep track of 10, 25, 101 separate contents of the clipboard. I just found 17 on a quick search. I'm trying a couple of these now.

I note that Jarte, a free simplified wordprocessor which I've started using, has this built in multiple clipboard capability. They say if you don't want a battleship of a word processor, try something lighter - Jarte.

I'd be interested to hear what others are using for these purposes.

Another aspect of this is that some of the clipboard programs do a lot more too. So it's a question of what combination of features you want in one program.

You can do this in GMail --The program quotes the entire message you're replying to, and there's a line down the left side of the page that indents the original, so you just space a couple of times below the paragraph you're replying to so that you're typing out at the margin, then after you've finished that segment space a couple of times to drop the next quote from the original below it. Rinse and repeat. I think you can do it in other mail programs too.

I used to put my replies in a different-colored font in between paragraphs so they stood out more, but I don't even bother with that any more.

I also use a draft mail for saving multiple links, messages to myself, and stuff from computer A that I want to copy to computer B. Started all that when computer B was out of commission for a while. Much easier than clipboard-type programs or going outside the email program.

happy friday

Here are the 17 clipboard programs, I mentioned. And there are more still. As I say some of these do a lot more than handling the clipboard. Some of these are freeware, some not.

JK: Thanks for pointing that out. I have Gmail but don't use it. I prefer Yahoo mail. You can do the same in Yahoo but I put >> in front of the quoted text or use different colors. You see what I've done in reply to this post - very primitive, although this forum offers multiquote and the quote bubble. I often put my initials at the start for clarity even if I set off the quoted material with > or >>

JK: I hadn't thought of that one. I do send myself emails at Gmail to store some things.

On Yahoo forums, which I visit a lot, I haven't seen any easy way to reply to separate sections of a post, as there is with mail programs.
