    OK, I downloaded iClip 3.7 from maczot when they were giving it away for free. I read nothing but raves on macupdate and everywhere else...

    ...but I hate it. Makes me think it's me that's the problem... think I'm definitely missing something.

    Here's what I like about it: you can position it anywhere, seems to really work as far as grabbing whatever i copy and also works when I want to paste. So far so good.

    Here's what I absolutely hate: it is sooooooo limited!!!!!! Every clipboard has a handfull of bins, and when you run out of bins, it's supposed to store your clips in the clipboard recorder... WELL IT DOESN'T!!

    I also hate the fact - absolutely hate - that the clipboard will push out new clips when the bins are full, which happens REAL FAST. Poof! You just lost your clip! I lost tons of stuff that I was copying, important stuff. It's not in the clipboard recorder, it is nowhere.

    I guess what I was hoping was for something that would store almost an unlimited number of clips, or at least ARCHIVE them!!! NOT LOSE THEM???!!!

    If all iClip is, is simply a slightly souped up regular clipboard that has a few more clips, then this is not worth bothering about - and I'm junking this app immediately.

    What I want is something like iClip, but that STORES tons of clips as many as I wish AND DOES NOT LOSE THEM.

    Is there such an app? TIA!

    You could try using the Shelf and Clipboard in Quicksilver that you can set up to use with up to 50? clips...
