Enjoy collections of clipboard clips and paste using shortcuts, with CLCL
The problem with clipboard extenders is that they suddenly stop co-operating with the clipboard or even lead to system crashes. This is a rare case with CLCL, a portable freeware that works almost flawlessly storing simple or rich text and images.
In case of images, CLCL seems to have problems. After I copy 10 images or more, suddenly I discover that I can’t paste anymore to the image editor. Obviously CLCL blocked the clipboard. Only restarting CLCL fixes the problem. This is why I started using ArsClip instead of CLCL.
You can have permanent collections of stored clips, paste using shortcut keys, extend the program with plugins. It is not accidental, I guess, that the author preferred a distribution without plugins, some of which may cause problems. I think that the meta-file capture plugin is problematic. In any case, my suggestion is to try each plugin, if you need it, and remove it if it causes problems. CLCL by itself works fine and fast.
