Pros: Its power and security.

Spartan is one of the great but little-known treasures of the Web. It can be used for more than just clipboard management. I often prepare documents that contain unusual symbols or sequences of symbols. With Spartan, I can have several different sets of such symbols, each one made functional by name or description. This is much faster than using a word processor's "insert special character" command.

Because Spartan supports good encryption, I can use Spartan to manage passwords. When I change a password, I can simply edit the password in Spartan. I have to memorize only one password (Spartan's master password). I also arrange my passwords by strength, so I can match passwords appropriately (one should not simply use the strongest possible password everywhere).

Spartan also functions as a convenient place to store names and addresses of colleagues or friends.

Spartan is stable and reliable.

Cons: There are certain features that I would like to have, but aren't in Spartan. Above all, I would like Spartan to hot-link a clip from a spreadsheet, database or URI.

My wife found Spartan's interface intimidating at first. This is probably my fault, because I use color-coding and grouping of clips, so when a Spartan page appears on screen, it looks very complex, although it's really just a bunch of clips arranged by function and name.

Overall: Because I write complex documents and spreadsheets that must function for users with diverse needs, I use Spartan many times a day. For me, Spartan has become a major tool, just like a part of the operating system.

Pros: Massive clipboard database generally easy to get to, use and re-use stored clips. A great way to also do periodic clips of work-in-progress text as a type of auto-save.

Cons: The UI has a very old UI look akin to a very early Windows or Visual Basic project / barely GUI. This is easily correctable (e.g., in Adobe Director 12, to a more modern 'flat design'). The smaller window -- movable by holding down the control key and dragging should be sizable, and the text/font in it should be editable and allow at least basic text editing size, bold, underling, italic etc. Ideally the text cell widths of a Spartan sheet (or one or more columns thereof) should also be adjustable e.g., in width, height and allow for bold titles. Cell ranges in a sheet should allow for coloring collectively vs. painstaking one at-a-time edits (e.g., 'select column' or cell range / edit color -- e.g., accessing Spartan's new Hex color grabber). Make the alpha-numeric column in a sheet draggable. Change 'browse pictures on this sheet' to 'browse pictures on any one or more sheets' -- allowing copying and pasting interchangeably. Make a one-click 'Export this sheet' for easy transfer to another PC running Spartan (and/or provide network access to a Spartan sheet database to view clips on hme networked (or business) computers. Do all of the above for Mac/Apple computers -- also something that Adobe Director 12 does quite easily). Make the menu bar of a sheet more conformed to what WIndows users are used to. The UI for the 'Views & Sheets Control Panel' is unnecesarily confusing. Also make any cell anywhere editable by double-click, not a separate window.

Overall: Very good experience. I use it daily and would readily recommend it to others. I have found nothing better.

Pros: With Spartan Clipboard, you can virtually copy-paste anything you can think of- photos, signatures, special characters you often use, ready-made messages and answers. One cool feature is that you can also copy any document path (which you can rename) to retrieve computer files such as word, excel, OO files... -and thus create as many shortcuts as you want to open the model files you often use. You can also copy web-pages and websites and rename them too. Another cool feature of SC is the numerous editing possibilities, which allow you to create titles for often used clips, and it's super easy to organise your clips visually, using different colours. The paid-version Spartan window can contain as many clips as you want, and you can see them all at one glance. That is very convenient and avoids annoying scrolling gestures to find the one clip you need. Another feature that is worth mentioning is the floating columns, which, once open, stay open and do not take much space on your desktop. This is very useful to copy-paste formulae, addresses when you write repetitive mails. The feature that enables you to access and open the clipboard, by moving the mouse arrow to the screen top, bottom, left and right edge -you can decide which one(s) you prefer-is incredibly time-saving. There is also a USB portable version to use on any Windows computer, but I am not interested in that particular feature as I only use my personal computer to work.

Cons: None I can think of apart from the slightly dull interface, which is not visually very exciting, but it is a productivity app and you get used to it very easily.

Overall: I have used this clipboard for about a year and wish there was a Spartan Mac version with online features which would allow users to have access to their clips from any computer and OS.

Pros: Spartan Clipboard has long been an indispensable tool of mine. It excels at capturing text copied to the clipboard and enables saving captures, forever if desired. Captured elements that are saved can be renamed, and displayed in a variety of colours, making them easy to spot. I truly use it several times a day and would be lost without it. There are other clipboard managers like Ditto out there for free. Spartan costs a bit of cash, but it's well worth it.

If I do have a problem Spartan also offers email support which is generally fast and reliable.

Cons: Spartan is quite a powerful program. There are some functions that, even with the built in instructions, I just don't understand. I'm sure if I made the effort I could figure them out, but I basically use Spartan for saving plain text or URLs from the clipboard and that is extremely straightforward.

Spartan has various other functions such as a Calendar which I've never used. That's not a criticism. Just a note that it is a program with many different functions. Being a minimalist, I basically use it as a powerful clipboard manager which is enough for me.

Overall: I'm a writer and do quite a bit research. I like to save portions of articles as I work, and then collate them into a document later. Spartan is great for that. I can copy 25 or more pieces of text to the clipboard, and then go through them later, rather than jump back and forth while I am reading the research document.

Very occasionally something doesn't get copied. I used to think that was Spartan fouling up, but I did a test, and if Spartan didn't capture an element, then neither did Ditto or another clipboard manager I ran at the same time as a test. So, it seems the problem when that happens is not with Spartan but with Windows itself.

Pros: The time-saving elements are fantastic, ranging from providing announcements, emails, inside the course messages to forty or more students. You can customize each message by "building" the message with clips and or specific paragraphs on almost any subject, special and unique "how to's" or directions of working an online problem or glitch, or setting up quizzes, exams and even grading schemes. In addition, it is easy to set up specific "sheets" for each semester to keep all conversations, messages etc in its own file. It is also valuable to keep a ready file to insert various "action" verbs to elicit lively conversations and responses.

Cons: The inability to be able to effectively transfer a compendium of information that is very flexible from a "base" computer to a laptop the use on trips and still be able to use the original information. The transferred information by using a flash drive for example. I have purchased and attempted to use the "travel" form of the Spartan Clipboard. It is not in the same league as the original.

Overall: I have used the Spartan Clipboard for over ten years and am organized with word sections, subject sections, message sections to save many hours and still be assured that the information is available but a click away and in the correct form and quality. The inclusion of photos, diagrams and charts are also simple to aggregate. In summary, the Spartan Clipboard accelerates communications and work by changing the basic elements for operating in specific words to integrated paragraphs or blocks of words, data, and supplemental visual aids. Love the flexibility and time savings. Not proud yet of the portability.

Pros: Ability to save repetitive info on different clipboards. Saves time, and for me, typing as I have a disability which makes using a keyboard rather difficult. I use cut & paste w/a mouse as much as possible. This program is something I've looked for for a long time. I like the ability to past info in various formats. The program is highly configurable for just about any applications including spreadsheets, docs, etc.

The ability to edit a clip & yet keep the original is especially handy. I use it to quickly fill out forms-I don't entrust any browser to safely keep my info private. I even keep credit card info in one of the clipboards.

The only thing that limits this program is your imagination in using it. I keep finding new way to use Spartan.

I can transfer the clipboards to another computer. I use this program more times a day than any other program. It makes writing batch files a breeze where repetitive info is required, which it often is.

Program is very easy on resources, and a real bargain as to cost vs value. (I've been involved w/computers since Bill Gates was 10 yrs old & only wish a program like this would have been available many yrs ago!)

The program maintains a search-able history of past clips, which you can clear if need be. Spartan has many excellent helps! Great support.

I can save data from an online form for future ref, esp if the form doesn't permit sending me a copy. Just buy it & see for yourself! Can't really say enough about it!

Cons: Can't change size of edit box to free up some screen. otherwise, I love the program!

Overall: Actually, I think I covered a lot of these in the pros. The program is so versatile I would not want to be w/o it! Saves so much time, which is really money. You can always make or get more money, but not so w/TIME.

Pros: Spartan's interface couldn't be any easier. The Hotkey combos are right there to see

The toolsets for each type of copy material is pretty full-featured for 'a clipboard utility'

The pricepoint for the middle Spartan version is to the point where the purchase decision should be automatic.

I received customer support during the middle of one of the World Cup soccer matches, which impresses me, being from Canada where the World Cup is reserved for HOCKEY!! Still, it showed a dedication to support that was appreciated.

Despite the toolsets for text and pictures, it's not SO over-run by features that you get lost.

It perfectly cures my MAIN reason for having a clipboard, naming graphic selections of screens easily (copy the text you want, copy the screen clip, rename the file you just created in saving the clip with the text previously saved ... )

Cons: I occasionally have issues recalling a previous clip into an entry field I'm currently in if I DON'T use hotkeys.

I had the limitation in SpartanLite for resizing the window.

Never found the combo in the settings (spread out over too many dialogs) for closing the View after I've successfully pasted the clip somewhere.

Overall: I tried out M8 and could have happily continued using it. It solved most of my clipboard needs and didn't interfere with my programming where I do a LOT of copying and pasting. But after a while, I realized this was a good product by people that took the time to make video tutorials and a good help file to go with a successful niche-filler. I had tried, by my count a total of more than 25 competing products in a computer career that goes back to the '70s with a very low serial number Apple ][. I transitioned to IBM PC's late in the decade and have been searching for just the right clipboard utility since. That's something close to 30 years. Spartan Lite works for me. It SHOULD work for just anybody who uses a PC. And if they get the programming bug, the regular version of Spartan can satisfy that need too. Automation is important for those of getting on in years.

Pros: I love this program, I am able to use it every day and have for many years. I use it when I need to copy one loan file to another. Spartan will remember 25 of the last items that I copied, so I can refer back to them as needed. I can go in and copy 5 or 10 items (really up to 25) on one form, go to the other form and paste them all in another form, no more; copy 1 item, paste 1 item, repeat, then repeat, then repeat! When I first started using this program I had several occasions that I needed to contact support, that was so easy and they were always within easy reach. I have not needed support for many years, so I don't know how it is now, but that is how it was in the beginning, as I said earlier, I have been using this for many, many years.

Cons: The only con is that this can only be used on one computer at a time and cannot have a copy of it printed. I guess this is a safety issue, but when I go on a working vacation, I do not access to it and have to write the items I want on a piece of paper before leaving.

Overall: I am a mortgage processor and have to get into many mortgage banks accounts and I keep all my usernames, AE's names and numbers and their FHA and VA numbers on the screen, so that all I have to to when filling out the forms in each of their websites, all I have to do is to click the box where I have that info saved. I use it for all my loan officers info to also fill in the many forms that need their names, phone numbers, email addresses and registration numbers.

Pros: I do a LOT of cutting-and-pasting. And I have a LOT of "snippets" I like to keep handy -- some for days, some for weeks, months, years -- that really don't fit into my other productivity tools. And I want instant access, when I want access at all; and I want to NOT see the application at all when I don't need access.

It'll sound odd but Spartan Clipboard is simply invisible in terms of, I don't even think about it. It's simply "there" -- for many years, now -- and I use it multiple times per hour, every hour I'm at my PC.

It's just a jack-of-all-trades tool, indispensable. I have tried other tools -- on other PC's where I hadn't installed Spartan. Nothing has even come close.

Cons: I can't think of a single thing I don't like. In fact, research I performed before writing this review made me realize that I've been entirely happy with a version that does only a fraction of what current versions do; and, I've been entirely happy using only a fraction of the functions even inside THAT version.

Overall: I wear many hats -- multiple businesses, and multiple roles. I have tried a lot of productivity tools; some I've kept, most I've dumped. Spartan Clipboard has the biggest impact on my ability to Get Stuff Done of all the tools I use. It's there when I need it, not there when I don't, it does things that simply don't fit well with any of my other tools, and it does them beautifully. Well conceived, easy to use.

Pros: 1. Multiple Views (clip saved lists( allow me to keep a running list of clips (copied text) in View 1, deleted clips (for rescue) in View 2, odds & ends clips in Views 3 thru 8; but best of all is View 9 for my "hot key" clips (activated by CTRL key combos) for my repetitious (over and over!) clips. What a time saver!

2. Selectable screen edge parking (top, right, left, bottom - I use the top); minimize the clipboard to the system tray at the bottom of the screen, then position your cursor at the top of the screen, the word "Clipboard" appears under your cursor, click on it and view 1 appears with the most recent clip highlighted. Want a different one? Select it with a mouse click and it will autocopy to the spot in your document where the cursor was left last.

Cons: Because there are so many options available, the learning curve can be a bit daunting. However, you can start with the simple single clipboard and just ease into using the other clipboards one at a time.

Overall: Although daunted by the multitude of options at first, I just started using it for a multiple save clipboard, but as I got more comfortable I tried the other options and now could not operate without this valuable tool.

I could not live without this software!

Pros: *Increases my efficiency 10 fold

*The developer is always working to improve it

*Wonderful and informative "how to" videos to get you up and running and getting the most from your software

*Ability to sync clips between devices

*Ability to control the way it pastes the data

Cons: That it doesn't come in a mobile version

Overall: In my work, I am constantly typing the same data over and over. And my passwords are required to change frequently. It is such a time saver to have all of those things tucked neatly in spartan for pasting with one click, and never having to remember what my new password is! I can't imagine the hours of work it has saved me over the past 5 years that I've been using it. I love that the developer, is always working on ways to improve it. I also appreciate the videos on how to use and get the most out of the software. This software does have a bit of a learning curve to it, but take an afternoon to watch the videos, get the software, get started with it and learn as you go. You will not regret this purchase if you are in a job that requires the same info to be typed over and over. Even if it's a whole email, you can save it as a clip with a label and every time you need it, it is only a click away! Anytime I set up a new computer, the very first thing that gets installed is Spartan Clipboard!!

Pros: Allows one to collect repeated text like passwords, email addresses, credit card info -whatever you use frequently- in one place and paste it in with no typos. Unless you really need to practice your typing, this saves a lot of time and frustration. Also, by collecting your favorite items, you don't have to look info up repeatedly because it is right there (well, look it up once only). One of the best things since sliced bread.

Cons: difficult to sync database across multiple devices. requires creative copying of database, which is not crystal clear what that file is. Sync can be done, but is a totally manual and time-consuming operation from my experience.

Overall: I keep dozens of email addresses, mailing addresses, credit card info, bank info, login ID's and passwords on one sheet. That pretty much does it for me. I have not used more than one sheet but it has a boatload of them if you have that much data to NOT retype every time you need it. The fact that it guarantees accurate entries is major. You are not trying to "fix" your typos constantly. I use it all day long and really like it. You will, too, after you set it up and get some experience with the interface (not difficult at all).

Pros: I've been using FreeClip and Spartan Clipboard for at least eight (8) years. I am an Executive Assistant to C-Suite Executives plus I own and operate several of my own small businesses. I use it at home and at work.

It is a superb way to store many items that I reuse or to grab a few items I want to address and have them at my fingertips. For example, when I am surfing the web and I see some sites I want to check out later, I "clip" all of them.

It is a huge time-saver for me.

I am so used to using it, every day, many times a day. I struggle to function when I am using a computer that does not have the application installed. I've tried other clipping applications and nothing compares to Spartan Clipboard.

I tout its benefits to everyone I meet.

Cons: The only thing I recommend is that its look and user interface feel be updated periodically, to keep it fresh and current. I feel some folks that I show it to, think it looks "so yesterday".

Overall: Customer service is fabulous and I am happy with Spartan Clipboard, overall.

Pros: It remembers everything you want it to remember even if you close the program or restart your computer. Never type your email address or passwords, bank account numbers, phone numbers and even whole documents. Even pictures. I never came close to using up space for more data to save for future input. I hate Windows built in clipboard and I love Spartan Clipboard. I'm sold for life.

Cons: Image files can be tricky because there are so many settings and preferences it is easy to mess up image files because there are so many different ways to do it. However they support their software with stellar email support. They get back to you within a day and are very helpful.

Overall: I love it from day one of using it. I have used it for years. 10 maybe and they even have a portable version that you can carry on a USB drive. I know there are other clipboards out there but I don't care, this one saves a ton of time and never had a problem. It backs up so I even keep my clips accross reformatting the hard drive too. As long as I use a windows machine I must have Spartan! It's cheap too, no monthly or yearly fees! Buy it once and it's yours forever.

Pros: Spartan Clipboard makes it possible for me to complete my online editing of essays with ease. I am able to have dozens of pre-written comments related to grammar, essay structure, etc. loaded into Spartan and with two keystrokes, I can add in an extended comment complete with hyperlinks and emojis into an essay to explain a correction or make a suggestion. I've been using Spartan for at least 5 years and consider it an indispensable tool for my job!

Cons: I transitioned from the free version to the paid version. I know the free version was a bit clunky to use initially, but that was 5 years ago. I've had no issues with the paid version and it runs without a hitch.

Pros: It is a very useful tool for the clipboard. It is totally transparent to the old cut and paste (i.e. that works just as you are used to) but add an incredible versatility and extended functions to it. You have almost limitless possibilities for storing clips both short term and long term. It's very handy when you have to copy things in parts as you do not need to jump forward and back for each part you copy, but you can copy them all in a series and then go to where you want to paste them and paste them one by one or all in one shot.

It has a lot of features which I do not really use, but they are there if you need them.

Cons: I never got the activation to make spartan the active window with the shortcut to work well. Even though the spartan window pops up I still have to move over to it with the mouse to continue. So that could be made a bit smoother.

Overall: It's a small utility, but it's pretty much a vital necessity for me. I feel absolutely handicapped without it.

Pros: Easy to use.

Clip organization with colored title bars.

Paid version is much better.

Love the flash drive version.

Multiple windows for organization of various clips.

Cons: Having to close one window to get to another clip window.

The clip preview window being way off to the side.

Overall: We use Service Now for ticketing on our mobility support desk. I can create and close tickets quickly using Spartan because I have all of my ticket groups organized. A lot of calls are redundant so I can take the call, create the ticket using Spartan and close the call, then close the ticket within a few minutes. Less typing and take more calls. Answer a lot of email requests and I have clip groups setup for each email that comes in. Can create and close tickets quickly with ease!

My supervisor said I create and close so many tickets that they will leave my name out of the weekly report because I bog the system down with my stats alone! I can thank Spartan for my good yearly reviews and raises too! I've tried to get my coworkers to use this software to save time but none of them have caught on. Their loss, my gain!

Pros: I love the ease of use that Spartan has. It allows for a lot of configuration, but for those who don't want or need the full extent of its power, it allows you to perform the basic tasks easily. The service is fantastic and quick. The hotkey assignment brings up the window in a flash, unlike other managers that take a few seconds (or more) to show themselves.

Cons: Truly, there are very few cons to this software. I have used every single clipboard manager out there, and this one is the best by far. The only complaint I have is that Spartan does not allow installation (portable) in an extreme locked down environment. But that is not an issue related to Spartan specifically. No other managers are able to do that. But if Spartan were able to be used in such environments, my life would be complete...

Overall: What more can be said than it saves me mountains of time. As I log into sites, send emails, and other business and personal functions, I use Spartan all through the day.

Pros: I publish textbooks. My "library" consists of a huge quantity of snippets (or clippets) I need to move from one place in my databases to other places. Spartan does it and does it well.

Cons: Yes, I have a beef. Let's say I have a series of twenty snippets that are useful. I keep mine in a certain order, usually alphabetically, depending on the book I am building. So a new source shows and I want to use it as a n additional snippet. Ah, so I have to manually move many of the preexisting snippets to make room. How much better for me if I could just paste it in where I want it and the others would "move" down a row. Similarly, I could remove an unneeded snippet and the others would effortlessly move up to fill the now blank space.

Overall: Spartan is a huge timesaver for me. If that one little auto-shift "bug" could be addressed I might just be happy forever. Auto-insert for my "library" is the way to go just as it works in a word processor.

LOVE IT! I USE IT ALL DAY LONG!!

Pros: *Fast access to various clips of information, webpages, logins, etc.

*Ability to encrypt data/logins/passwords

*Stores last 25 copy items

Cons: *Selecting clips to move between sheets is clunky. Doesn't like to select ranges of clip/cells that have blank clip in-between. Would like the ability to select as many clips as possible on a sheet and then move/copy those selected to another sheet all at once.

Overall: It's debatably the most powerful program on my workstation that is full of various top professional software. And that's because it complements most other professional software. I use it all day long for various things. And I only have only taken the time to learn to use a fraction of what the amazingly powerful software is capable of. It's an extremely high-value for the money you spend on it! You don't know how much it saves you time and efforts until you start using it and then find that it might be the most powerful program on your computer in regards to your overall computer activity.

I love Spartan Clipboard! The most flexible and powerful clipboard I've found.

Pros: - A huge list of visible clipboard text items that I can easily paste, edit, color code, and organznize with drag and drop.

- 20 sheets (pages) of these lists so I can have dedicated sheets for dedicated tasks that I do all the time.

- sizable window to make it as big or as small as I need

- I can save 10 unique views (layouts) customized for specific tasks

- I can turn capturing on or off

- great tool tip panel for features

Cons: - It's name. I can never remember Spartan.

- It is so flexible that it may seem overwhelming at first.

Overall: I am able to set up sheets that are customized to particular filling in field tasks. That allows me to have open a clipboard sheet with items needed just for that specific task. Without that feature instead of seeing 20 copy and paste options needed for that task, I'd be looking at all the copy and paste options for all my tasks. It also saves me from having to set the clipboard sheets up each time I need them. I can have them set up, close the program, open it up the next day and my clipboard sheets are still there exactly as I left them. The ability to color each clipboard text item makes it easy to find specific items at a glance. I also love that I can see the text that I'm about to paste (instead of each clip just being a numbered slot like in other multi-clipboards I've tried). I've tried so many multi-clipboards and this is the best.

Pros: 1. You c an store tons of your clipboard memory

2. Some you can make permanent, some remain volatile and you can choose which ones are to be what

3. You have enough space to store a lot of permanent clipboard memory

Cons: 1. Once you give focus to spartan it keeps hanging there till you minimize it, I wish it would auto minimize after sometime. It occupies a lot of screen space and hampers your work and irritates you

2. I wish it could like sync across all your computers and accounts like currently Microsoft is doing with its own clipboard

3. I wish it would be picked up by filehippo app manager or other third party apps or it would have its own pop up bubble to tell you that an update or an upgrade is available.

Overall: I use it a lot when I am working with multiple excel sheets

Pros: Inclusion of programming capability to create customized trans-application macros.

Cons: No cons from my experience. Everything works as advertised.

Overall: Spartan assists me in all aspects of my business. I am able to program Spartan to work with several windows applications, one right after the other and to do so interactively. As an example - I use Spartan to maintain my on-line, subscription based, restricted-access on-line forums membership roles.

With just one such Spartan created program I am able to process several aspects of a new membership. The several steps of a new member sign-up process include; using Putty to generate a new User-Name and Password, adding the new member to an Excel database, testing of the new login credentials using the Opera browser, and finally creating and sending a greeting email containing the credentials to the new member.

The creator and lead programmer of Spartan is available to assist whenever (very rarely now) I have had a question I didn't find in the excellent on-line tutorials.

Pros: * All copied data is saved

* All copies are available to be selected for re-pasting

* Some copies can be made permanent (references, for example, for re-pasting in a research article)

* A bell rings to verify that a copy has been successful

* Archived copies can be categorized and arranged

Cons: It's a bit awkward to be constantly resident in the task bar, but it's a slight price to pay.

Overall: In cases where I need to copy several items without a chance to paste them before moving to another document, Spartan Clipboard allows me to paste them at will and in whatever order is needed. And the library of "recent copies" seems to be endless--I've never reached its limit. Even more fascinating is the ability to archive certain copies, which puts them in reach whenever and wherever they are needed in the future. This is irreplaceable in doing research--the library of sources can be kept in the very copy routine!

A Multiclip clipboard like Spartan is a necessity in this multi-dimensional online world.

Pros: I like that it will capture a variety of classes of content. Selecting a complete Scrolling section even when it flows off the current screen is vital to be sure I get everything I need to paste elsewhere.

I also like that it allows me to permanently save captured content by easily moving it to an empty slot. The ability to quickly capture an isolated section of a page and then comment it in the editor is my favorite compound use. It saves me having to take multiple steps to accomplish the same idea.

Cons: Unpredictable failures to capture scroll area and I have to manually switch through the various types of captures and try many of them before I get one that works this time.

Overall: Overall, it really shortens the amount of time and frustration I spend fleshing out a concept or idea to make it visually obvious.

Pros: There are too many features to mention here, but first and foremost it works every time. I use this to put full reports together, I have blocks for customer contact info, blocks for report captions, it has helped me automate almost everything I do. I have some "sensitive" information buried in one of the many Sheets to stop prying eyes. It remembers my last 20 or so clips, I could go on and on!

Cons: My old eyes might appreciate being able to size the screen. I don't think I can do that now, bigger could be better.

Overall: I remember some years ago having a question or 2 and needed support. My rep was very quick to respond and was very friendly. Each time I reload my HDD or get a new computer, the program moves over very easily and the data transfer is flawless. I love this software!!

Pros: Spartan Clipboard is highly functional, 100% customizable and adaptable, and has made our work immensely easier since Day 1. We are thrilled with its ability to do so many things that we need and some we didn't even know we could. Customer service is knowledgeable and respectful and top drawer in every regard. We are happy, happy customers! Truly the best decision ever. THANK YOU, Spartan!!

Cons: None that we can think of. It does everything we need and more and lacks for nothing. Truly aces!

Overall: From beginning to end for many years now, Spartan has fulfilled all of its promises. Customer service, as well as the program itself, is everything we could ever want. It's so heartwarming to be able to do business with a group like this and know that the product AND the service will exceed expectations. We are more than satisfied; we are delighted!

Pros: I have used this software for the past 6 years and recently purchased and installed it on a new machine. I feel handicapped working without it. It has so many useful functions from changing captured text to Proper Case to a full blown Filing System. I have saved my self countless hours working on spreadsheets filling rows of data with single clicks.

Cons: It is not pretty. :-) Totally functional and efficient but I don't believe it will win a UI design award anytime soon.

Overall: It saves Captures and Clicks. It often reduces what would normally take me 6 to 7 clicks to complete a task down to 2 clicks.

If any of our team members have to do repetitive spreadsheet or database work that they need to complete quickly and accurately then Spartan Clipboard is the first thing I encourage them to install on their computers.

Pros: Everything! Reliable, error free, flexible with numerous features that I use. Never goes down and is entirely hassle free. I compile and edit a daily news report. Spartan allows me to collate, place articles in priority order, edit and stores articles for later use. I have evaluated other multi clipboards, but Spartan is way better. The help from the owner is excellent. He has responded to my queries after hours and even on week ends.

Cons: Spartan does not have an automatic update system. So every year or so, I upgrade without being reminded.

Overall: Representative has made certain improvements on my request, and has an open mind to all suggestions. He keeps on introducing improvements, fixes bugs etc.

I have used Spartan daily for the last 8 years, and never once has it let me down!

Pros: It makes software development faster with easy to use clips, macros and hot-keys. Being able to paste custom text (like date and time)into file names is a great help when saving files. Having clips etc. backed up automatically (if I want) has saved me from a big self-induced problem when I accidentally deleted a mass of clips.

Cons: The user interface is a little quirky (not typical Windows application layout) but once you get on to it you find it has been designed to make your life as easy as possible.

Overall: I use it most in software development for code snippets and copy/paste of code ... because that's what I do the most. Being able to easily date/time stamp screen snapshots I save to disk is invaluable. If I didn't have Spartan Clipboard I'd have to search for something else that wouldn't be as good.

It is definately the most useful software I have ever used and my day would be hours longer without it. I would highly recommend it to everyone wanting to save time.

Pros: It works! I use it with almost every email I send, which are many. I don't know what I'd do without Spartan Clips!

Cons: Sometimes it seems to glitch and doesn't copy to the clipboard. Honestly there may be a reason for this and I haven't even taken the time to look into it so I can't say I'm blaming Spartan for that. Could be user error for all I know.

Overall: I have so many standard things I need to write over and over again in my email communications. Being able to save all of this and at the click of my mouse be able to drop that content in has been invaluable in my business.

When I have had any questions I get an immediate response. I feel like they don't sleep! Rarely have I experienced such immediate and consistently great customer service for any virtual/online product.

I HIGHLY recommend Spartan Clips and for the price it's a no-brainer!

I work as a digital designer and have an internet store and a team of Creative girls who make up display pages to advertise my digital "Kits" hence there are always links to be posted taking people from adverts directly to my store etc.. and in many other areas I use Spartan daily and have recommended it to everyone I can. It is a priceless time saver

Cons: There really isnt anything I can think of that I don't like?? and I have been using it for a long time now

Overall: I have never encountered any problem using Spartan. It is a time saver and invaluable for keeping links I need for long periods of time as well. I mean it when I say - How did I live without it? It is a simple little software but fabulous.

Pros: Does what it claims without a lot of drawing attention to itself. Rock solid behavior. Very responsive support

Cons: Just picking a nit. The spreadsheet layout is a little busy. It feels like there might be a better way to present this information. Unfortunately, I'm not clever enough to come up with a good idea.

Overall: At one point, Spartan was conflicting with a software KVM program I was running. The fault was with the other software. I reported it to both developers and reps was very prompt and patient. The two developers copied me on their conversation, so I was able to follow what they were doing. Both were professional, and reps were able to explain the mistake the other developer was making. The other guy eventually had time to correct the code, and the two utilities now coexist easily together.

Cons: This isn't anything I don't like about Spartan, but one thing I have always wanted was a way to triggers Spartan to open in a minimal window right at the current mouse cursor position.

Overall: Overall experience has been stellar. Everyone at my office that has seen me using this software has purchased it themselves and use it daily. I searched for a long time for a multi-clipboard app and until Spartan they all had something that didn't work for me, or critical features missing. It's been great and probably the most value from a piece of software that I've ever purchased.

It change the way I do my work as an engineer and electronic support of new tech products we manufacture. A lot of recommendations and links for technical information are stored at Spartan and with a sigle click I can add to my mails!

Cons: I do not find any problem. This version is perfect

Overall: We use it to store some phrases that I use for a good description of tech recommendations. I do not have a need to think it twice... I use it too for brief explanation of our products. Now a email reply is only a Click+Click+Click work...

Very often I use it when edit images because now I can copy several parts one by one. And then using Spartan we can paste it in the same order

Pros: Storage of a large number of clips - easy paste features for the functional clipboard

I work as an instructor and editor - so make many comments that are similar and need to be repeated

I can store a large number of sets of comments in the non-functional area and move them to the clipboard - so thumbs up on that.

Cons: It took quite a while to learn how to efficiently group comments in the storage area and then move them back to the clipboard - how to select the comments, etc.

The tech - (written support) was a bit hard to locate and vague - and therefore not the easiest to use

Overall: Overall a good product - there is a learning curve and the support for the product can use improving

Pros: This multi-clipboard stores 25 clips which can be pasted or dragged into other environments including email. Each clip can be edited. Current clips can be moved to a permanent storage area. I use it every day for routine copying and pasting single clips. The program is ideal when I am writing articles or books, as it is always kept open either at the side of one monitor or on a separate monitor. It contains multiple Views and Sheets. It can be Backed-up or Restored. Help from the authors in England is immediate.

Cons: I sometimes get confused by 'Views' and 'Sheets' but the authors then help me.

Overall: It is essential to have a 'holding area' when editing students' work or my own.

Pros: It is very easy to learn to use and it is very easy to make edits as they are needed. Our staff uses the Spartan Clipboard to answer customer questions both via email and via live chat. It works better than the software that comes with the "live chat" feature on our website.

Cons: It would be nice to have the option to automatically "clear the clipboard" when you shut down the software.

Overall: Our staff uses the Spartan Clipboard to facilitate typing often used phrases. It saves a ton of time and effort. The best part is that management can review the phrases that they are using and make sure they are written properly and that they are effective.

Pros: I love having a place where I can store my commonly used clips. I have short clips and rather long clips each with a short title that reminds me what the clip is. Using the various color to ID my various clips is very helpful. Being about to sort them into the order that makes sense to me is very helpful.

Plus having recent clips readily available to use, modify, edit is very helpful.

I really rely on my Spartan Clipboard for my business and personal information.

Cons: Not having it available on my iPad and iPhone when I am away from my PC.

Overall: It has made my business and personal dramatically better. Having ready access to my commonly used clips is something I really depend on.

Pros: I like having at least 20 of my previous copies on file. Being able to get a popup list by simply moving the mouse to an edge is great, and now that it copies graphics as well it's so useful.

Cons: I've been using M8 Free Clipboard but upgraded to Spartan. I like the additional features and the price was very inexpensive, but I have had to stop using Spartan and go back to M8 Free. Why? My password manager is Roboform and I depend on it all day. It has a popup feature to present a search box to pull any of my 500 saved passwords with only a mouse "hover." This popup feature no longer worked when Spartan was installed. I finally went back to M8 Free and my Roboform popup feature started working. I guess the 2 programs are incompatible, at least the feature I like the best is incompatible.

Overall: I liked being able to give names and labels to saved information, and the larger storage was a plus. If it wasn't for my password manager I'd still have it running. If you do not have Roboform installed, get Spartan. You will like it.

It works as advertised. I have no issues with it. I switched from a different clipboard manager that counted licenses. I've never regretted switching to Spartan Clipboard.

Overall: Overall experience: it just works. And it's very easy to use.

Pros: The ability to copy paste in itself the best feature of this app. Well, this app can remember hundreds of items that you can copy and paste. It can also copy and paste any graphic/image/jpeg/etc. Another major feature is the ability to save certain items so that you can use them when and where needed.

Cons: I have an older version that sometimes has an issue copy pasting a format.

Other than that I really don't have any complaints.

Overall: The ability to save repetitive text/emails that I send out daily with minor changes saves me the time I so desperately need to do other things. This software has more than paid for itself over the years that I have used it. Hands down the best software/app I have ever purchased.

The ability to to build multiple pages for different usecases saves time with reptitive code and clippings. Saving, modifing, and color coding clippings also helps to keep things organized.

Right-click options are also helpful to allow plain text, all caps, or proper case paste options.

Auto-close option also comes in handly to minimize clipboard once desired clipping is selected.

Cons: Software conflicts with other application(s) at times on some computers? I have been unable to pinpoint the cause for one of my computers.

So much more than just a clipboard manager.

Pros: I started using Spartan Clipboard several years ago, and it continues to impress with each new release. It's a very flexible piece of software--- but that's also one of its cons *if the user doesn't take the time to view the videos the developer has posted*.

To me, Spartan is a near-instantly accessible database of regularly accessed records that can have various properties (images, text, links)....much more than a 'mere' clipboard cache/manager.

Cons: It's not intuitive, and it's not like any other program I've used. But the videos and documentation (especially the videos) explain why the program looks and behaves the way it does.

Pros: Spartan saves me time every day. Easy access to the history of copies and cuts, plus the ability to store macros saves significant time on repetitive tasks.

Cons: It's almost too much. I'm not using a fraction of the capability because after the first few sheets, it became hard to recall where particular entries are stored. The ability to label, colour and search clips negates some of that, but even so, the ability to store thousands of clips makes a bunch of them not very sueful.

Overall: I can automate entry for certain repetitive entries like particular details of common trouble tickets , as well as key key email addresses, account info, and data that have to be entered into an online form on a regular basis.

Pros: I researched many clip board add-ons before purchasing this one. The additional sheets of custom clips you can create and export was just what I needed for a project I was working on. Next, it was a great time saver working on a help desk to quickly send canned responses to user problems. I continue to use it on my computer every day for other projects and routine tasks. It allows you to organize clips into two columns: 1) a running list of everything you copy and 2) another list of the clips that you can organize and save to use later.

Cons: No cons, but because it has a lot of features, including a new Yearly Planner, you need to take a few minutes to look through the Option Sections to get the most out of Spartan M8.

Overall: I've reached out to the author once concerning an upgrade question and found him to be quite helpful. This is a product that has more depth than many simple clipboard add-ons, which is why I still keep it in my tool kit. I recommend it as a great productivity tool.

Pros: Spartan works in practically all applications and, if in some cases it is not possible to paste on the first click, the object is still copied to the system clipboard and can be pasted with ctrl-V.

Cons: The "views and sheets control panel" menu is a little laborious to use, I would prefer that the choice of sheets was inserted in a row at the bottom of the front end.

Overall: I tried a lot of helpers for the clipboard but I always came back to Spartan.

There is nothing better to memorize sentences to be reused later, sentences in a foreign language to be reused in an article or URL and passwords.

In particular, floating columns are a great help to categorize addresses and notes.
