I've tried to use Clipboard Help+Spell under English Windows 7 x64 in order to copy and paste some Cyrillic text. The behavior is quite interesting: CHS shows Cyrillic symbols correctly in the clips list and in the main window (clips manager) too. But when I paste the clip from the list into the target application's window, it puts Cyrillic symbols in some totally distorted form (a bit similar to some Eastern Asia hieroglyphs). It is well known issue, which usually points, that something is wrong with the encodings.

I've tried to paste in many different application, with or without Unicode support, plain text, HTML, RTF formats (from Notepad to LibreOffice Writer) - the result was always the same (see the screenshot).

Have you any idea, how to fix the problem?

Let me look into that -- if the clips are showing right in the grid, then it should be fixable..

i'm afraid not.. im guessing that maybe the source and target window are using different character sets? does that make sense? in other words did you copy the cyrillic text from one app and paste into another?

Nope. I had a similar idea too, but this issue appears even when copying a text fragment inside the same window of the same app.
