Sept 24, 2013 - ZoneAlarm has done it again!!  ZoneAlarm is falsely reporitng a virus/trojan in ClipMate 7.5.  And it DELETES ClipMate and PREVENTS you from re-installing.   This is a FALSE POSITIVE.  Please report to ZoneAlarm so that they too, can share the pain that they are causing.
ClipMate 7.5 features both 32-bit and 64-bit ClipBar support in both Windows7 and Windows8.  It is a free update to all ClipMate v7 users.  Just install over your current 7.3, and you'll upgrade it "in-place".
Users of the WebRoot firewall will need to make an adjustment to the WebRoot settings in order to allow ClipMate to capture clipboard data from web browsers. Otherwise WebRoot will BLOCK such access! It may also be causing WHITE SCREEN CAPTURES as it may be blocking the PrintScreen key.

User Testimonials
Click To View All, or add your own!I've been using the screen graphic clipping ability now to measure screen widths of various browser displays. I have two monitors so that I can put menu bars of graphics programs out of the way of the main graphic display screen. This works great to make comparisons of various pages. I can put a clip of prices I paid for investments on one monitor and current prices on the main monitor and readily see what's working and what's not!

Q&A - Answers to common press questions.

Q: How much does ClipMate cost?
A: ClipMate sells for $34.95 for an "unlock code", delivered electronically. Users can also purchase a CD for an additional $9.95, which includes free shipping.  Since everything is downloadable, the $34.95 option is the most popular.  A single-user license allows a single user to run ClipMate on one or two computers.  If they need to add users, multi-user discounts are available.  Also, for households with lots of computers, we offer a "whole house" 5-pack for $79.95.

Q: What is the limit on how many items ClipMate can hold?
A: ClipMate can store hundreds, or even thousands of items. (We've tested with over 30,000 items).  Data is written to disk immediately after being captured, so there is no "save" operation.  We find that most users keep around 300 items in ClipMate.

Q: Is there a manual included?
A: Not any more.  But there is a downloadable/printable PDF file.  .

Q: How long have you been selling ClipMate?
A: ClipMate was first uploaded to CompuServe in December 1991. Since then, it has gone through five  major revisions, and has supported all major Windows platforms (Windows 3.0, Windows 3.1/WfW, Windows95, Windows98, WindowsME, Windows NT, 2000, and XP).  There are no plans for Mac, OS/2, BE, or Unix.

Q: Is ClipMate available in the retail channel?
A: No. Most of our sales are direct.

Q: What does ClipMate Do?
A: ClipMate is a clipboard extender that "remembers" everything that you copy to the Clipboard. By selecting an item within ClipMate's history, it is placed back onto the internal Windows clipboard, ready for pasting into any application.
Please take our tutorial! and better yet, watch some of the online demos.

Q: Does ClipMate use Adware/Spyware?
A: No.  ClipMate is pure Shareware.  Try before you buy, 30-day evaluation, no "phone home" activation, and the program does not send data back to us.
