Typing something you've typed before? Searching for that graphic file, web address or phone number you know you have somewhere? Want to browse your digital photos and paste them straight into your email or word processor?
You need Spartan. Spartan isn't just a multi clipboard. It's a complete information center for your PC.
You can save:
Often used text
Form letters to paste into emails or word processors.
Screen shots (There's an Inbuilt graphics editor to add text Etc.)
To do lists
Prompts for tele-sales operators
Notes for business contacts
Students web research
Recipes, poems, jokes, shopping lists, scripts......... Virtually anything you need to remember.
You can make things easy to find,
You can arrange things visually by position or by color and you can sort any group alphabetically.
And when you come to reuse your clips.
Spartan shows a preview of each clip and provides you with:
A picture browser for your digital photos
A browser launch button when the clip contains a web address
An email launch button when it contains an email address
A dial button when it contains a phone number
And a run or open button where it is a program or file on your computer.
The yellow area, containing 25 cells, is the multi clipboard. Each time you cut or copy, Spartan will capture the clip, save it to disk and display a default name for it in one of these cells.
The white area is the area where you store the clips you want to keep permanently.
To move clips from the clipboard area to the permanent area, you can either drag them or use cut, copy and paste. If you use dragging, dragging with the left mouse button moves the clip (equivalent to cut and paste) and dragging with the right mouse button copies the clip (equivalent to copy and paste). You can also use either of these methods to rearrange clips within the permanent area and you can use cut, copy and paste to move or copy clips from one sheet to another.
To paste back clips, leave the cursor at the place you want the clip in the program you are working in, bring up Spartan and click on the clip you want to paste.
The matrix of cells in the work sheet is 9 columns by 62 rows and there are 20 such sheets. You can change sheet from the Sheet menu.
