Outbound Clip Filtering
When selected, this option prevents non-text formats like RTF and HTML from reaching the clipboard, causing data to be pasted as pure text. This has the same effect as the "strip non-text formats", except that it doesn't actually remove the data from the clip - it just affects how it is presented to the clipboard. Also, it's more convenient.
You can think of it as the Application Profile, in reverse. Where the Application Profile filters data from coming INTO ClipMate, this feature filters data going OUT to the system clipboard.
For example, you may have a clip copied from Internet Explorer, which would likely contain the same information as plain TEXT, but also in Rich Text Format (RTF) and HTML. Each format may behave differently when pasted, as the RTF and HTML will carry their formatting attributes (font, color, links, etc.) with them. It is often most useful to paste just the text, which then goes in as if you were typing at the keyboard, usually assuming the font/size/color/etc., present at the insertion point. Use this new filter, to cause ClipMate to put just the plain text onto the clipboard.
It also works with graphics. If you have a graphic clip, represented in multiple image formats (Bitmap, Metafile, Picture, OLE, and maybe some custom formats), you can force it to paste as just Bitmap, by using this feature. Since the same item will rarely have both TEXT and Bitmap, there isn't usually a conflict - but if there is, TEXT will have priority.
New in version 7: The filtering is now "active". You'll hear a special sound when ClipMate captures the data, indicating that it has also updated the clipboard with its "cleansed" version. There is no longer a need to invoke ClipMate as an intermediary when you do a straight copy/paste within an application or from one application to another, as you would have needed to do with ClipMate v6.5.
