ClipMon remembers for each text and for each image which program has copied it to the clipboard.

While some other clipboard managers only have limited editing features,
ClipMon History Browser offers all the editing power of your installed graphic-
ClipMon History Browser allows you to edit and manipulate text in its internal text editor, also using customizable scripts.

While some other clipboard utilities only allow to copy previous clipboard items back to the clipboard,
ClipMon allows the user to quickly and directly send the actual or a previous clipboard item in a customizable format to a preset mail recipient or to a preset custom directory.
