Adding a multiple cut/paste feature to MS Word

A sample application using ClipManagerX

This example shows how an additional function can be added to MS Word so that multiple clips of text are made available to the user in a listbox, for pasting. The ActiveX control ClipManagerX is used to provide the extended clipboard funtionality, with a small amount of VBA programming required to customise for use in Word.

To use this demo, you will need to download two files:

Trial version of the ActiveX control ClipManagerX. (681kB)

Sample MS Word Template for Demo. (8kB)

A screenshot of the final application is shown below:

Word Clipboard 1


Install ClipManagerX, then extract the file from the zip file and place it in the Word startup folder. This is usually "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Startup"", but this can be confirmed by opening Word and looking in the "File Locations" tab under Tools/Options.

The functionality will now be available automatically every time Word is started as indicated by the ClipMan toolbar being displayed.
