i dont know of any program that will do that, but plenty of clipboard programs will remember every text you copy to the clipboard, and then let you paste a whole batch of them to ms word all at once when you go to paste.

ClipX (www.clipx.org)
claims to be able to paste items 1 to 9 from the clipboard via shortcutkeys plus [1 to 9] but just trying it out now: it's not working for me...

It does paste the first two entries in the same order as they are copied
~ copy me first
~ copy me second

using shortcut Ctrl+Alt+V [then hitting enter] twice in a row, I get them pasted in the same order
~ copy me first
~ copy me second

I know there's been quite a few different mini-apps related to copy paste here at dc - have you done a search?

is this any help:

I'm looking for a simple clipboard programme for capturing multiple items of plain text such as web site URLs and so on to a single text file.
[...]
Each time I copy a piece of text to this clipboard it should be added to the end of the list without deleting the existing contents.

You could try the last free version of ClipCache, 1.41, available from e.g. http://www.woundedmoon.org/ legacy Windows software links (other repositories have it as well).  It normally saves each clip separately, but once you have it running, right-click on the tray icon and select Append Text Captures.  If you want something simpler that does just what you want and no more, there was a 1994-vintage PC Magazine utility by Robert Lausevic called PasteBoard, and an unrelated 2005 one of the same name by Mike Sanders but that one seems to have escaped from my hard disk  - ah, found it online: http://fuzzbox.hypermart.net/pasteboard/index.html

You may also like to know that Horst Schaeffer's command-line utility ClipText for transferring text between files and the clipboard also has an append feature.

I have added the feature to Clipboard Help+Spell to let you merge clips in reverse order.. Not sure it will serve your needs but i think it's a good option to add to the "Merge Clips" function.

I will try to release a new version of CHS in the next day or so (which also hopefully fixes a longstanding rare bug) with this change as well.

I have uploaded a new beta of Clipboard Help+Spell here if you want to try it:
http://www.donationcoder....oardHelpAndSpellSetup.exe

To use the reverse clip pasting feature, you would first use ctrl+C as normal to copy each item in whatever software you are using, one at a time.
Then you would show the main CHS menu (Ctrl+Alt+Q then W) then select the clips from the list, and right-click then choose "Merge", and then check the box at bottom left to assemble in reverse order.

If items you were interested in only showed up in the clipboard because you copied them with a hotkey (default Ctrl-C), then it would be easy to write a script that:
  1. copies the selected text to the clipboard
  2. remembers the current window and activates the open Word window
  3. pastes the text
  4. adds a linefeed
  5. returns to the original window

Say you assigned the script to Shift-Ctrl-C.  Then anytime you hit the hotkey when text was selected, it would be automatic.

Monitoring the clipboard for text that showed up there automatically, or via a mouse-click (right-click,copy), would make this more complicated.  But if you were always going to use the keyboard, this would be easy.

AndyM, you are right! but i want to copy text, images and formatted text! if copying will be in background, it will be better, but your variant also is good!

If you can select the image or formatted text, can't you copy it with a hotkey?

The links tomos quoted are for plain-text programs.  If that was all you wanted, I'd also have pointed out that even the free version of the NoteTab editor allows you to assign a file as a collector for clips.  But, if you must have images and formatted text, I expect you will have to pay for shareware like ClipMate or possibly the payware version of ClipCache, which I haven't tried.  The latter does have a feature to merge clips in various ways.
