Greetings,
I have been trolling for a Portable clipBoard program:

Basically, I want a clipB program that will autoSave all copied images (with original FileType).
AutoSave all copied text (as separate file * ),
but (optional) prompt for a TAG for 'saved text Category'
(FolderName = TagName, FileName = date/time):
User defined BUTTON TagNames: Quote,  Html, Url, Colors, ReVisit, ToDo, EmailTo,  
C-programming, HotBasicProgramming, Default, Research, etc...
(maybe user defined TagNames in  *.ini file).  

* but also keep a running tab of all text copy's (as one file),
since last 'user defined' interval (new day, or last startup, or date time).
And be able to go back and Edit/ReTag an item.

If there is already a cbProgram that does the above, pls, let me know.

Thanks...vmars316

So, just to rephrase to make sure I understand -- if you clip an image or a text item, you want your clipboard manager to save each item as a separate file?  And then at each clip, ask you for a tag, and use that tag info for the foldername (using the time stamp as the filename)?  With buttons for the tags you tend to use frequently?  Also, if it's text, keep a copy in a running file as well, with each snippet time stamped so you can clean out the items that are older than your time limit?  And portable as well?

Fwiw I just use Ditto (http://ditto-cp.sourceforge.net/), which is fantastic for my use but unfortunately will not satisfy your needs.

My Clipboard Help+Spell  will run portably, will save each captured image to its own image file, will capture all text.  but will does not save text clips in plaintext files, does not prompt for tags.

So, just to rephrase to make sure I understand -- if you clip an image or a text item, you want your clipboard manager to save each item as a separate file?
Yes.

Quote
  And then at each clip, ask you for a tag
At each Text clip, yes.
Actually, It would be better, to set an option to SaveAsDefaultTag  OR
   PromptForTagEachTIme, for each Text clip.
But then when TaskBar_Icon is LeftClicked, cbPgm auto_opens to the last item in running file.
Which allows user to change Tag.
Which is good reason to have all the ButtonTags visible.
Also, I would like the program to be invisible, except for TaskBar Icon.
I don't care for TaskTray icons, because it often requires more strokes.

Quote
and use that tag info for the foldername (using the time stamp as the filename)?
Yes.

Quote
  With buttons for the tags you tend to use frequently?
Yes. User defined Tags.

Quote
Also, if it's text, keep a copy in a running file as well.

Yes.

Quote
with each snippet time stamped

Yes. And each snippet contains its initial TAG.
And each snippet in the running file, is a separate entity,
so that it can be CLICKed, which allows cbPgm (clipboardProgram)
to edit the snippet(and even change the TAG).


Quote
so you can clean out the items that are older than your time limit?
No. The time limit has to do with when cbPgm ENDs the current running file, 
and starts a new running file.
   
Quote
And portable as well?
Yes please.

I have downloaded/tried 12 freeware cb programs so far.
But none do the above.

Hmm...
I am looking at your Clip Help&Spell (CHS),
The ClipNaming screen looks promising.

Use it for keeping hierarchical notes - search, sort, filter by text, modification date, last view date
How does the "keeping hierarchical notes - search" work?

it just means that CHS was designed to let you easily quickly search your clips, no matter how you organize them -- just type in some text at the top in the search field and it will filter your clips.  you can filter by application captured from or by text in the clips.

i wouldn't pay too much attention to the hierarchical part -- though you can arrange hierarchies of groups, CHS has not developed into a full fledged notetaker, at least by my way of thinking.

however you can manually add tag fields to your clips, and create virtual groups that automatically show all clips with certain tags, etc.

Greets,
I just watched the 2 'Clipboard Help+Spell' videos.
Wow, chs does a lot. So I am trying it out.
Maybe i'll just type in a TAG, after copy,
or is there a list of TAGs that i could build & Click on?

Normally i use FastStone_Capture, but 'screenShot captor' looks interesting,
so i downloaded it to.   
Thanks...vm

One thing i could add to CHS is a kind of "persistant" tag that you could set whenever you wanted.

So if you were going to spend a few hours on project X, you could tell CHS: tag everything from now on with a tag of "project x"
And when you were done you would clear the persistant tag so it would stop being applied.

Not sure if that would be of use to you or others, but it would be similar to the "Quick Field" that Screenshot Captor has.

Hmm...
"persistant tag"...sounds interesting.

I can see an image that i copied "'on the popup from 'leftclick TaskTray icon'",
but it doesn't show on the main menu.
How to show in main window?
Thanks...vm

hmm that's an interesting point -- it won't show on the grid at a glance but it will show when you select an item that has an image, and you should have a virtual group which only lists the clips with images.
