	ClipBook - Store multiple text & graphic clips for later use




	Nick Portalski


	I spent a couple of summers working on Macs writing documentation.  
	One of the most useful tools was the Mac Scrapbook, which allows you 
	to store any number of 'clips' (text and graphics) and then copy any
	one to the clipboard so you can paste it into applications.  
	Items were placed in the scrapbook via the normal cut'n'paste keys.  
	In fact, I liked it so much that I wrote this -  The Amiga 
	Clipbook commodity.

	The Clipbook allows you to store text and graphics clips, scan through
	them and copy any of them to the standard Amiga clipboard.  
	They can then be pasted into applications.  To put something into 
	the Clipbook you simply have to copy it from an application and paste
 	it into the Clipbook.

	Each clip in the Clipbook is displayed if possible.  At the moment
	only FTXT and ILBM clips are shown.  Others can be stored but not

	This is useful for logos, 'standard' blocks of text, graphics you use
	often etc etc.  If you use a particular graphics brush often then 
	instead of having to load it (and remember the path!) each time you 
	can simply store it in the clipboard and copy it out each time you 
	need it. 


	Clipbook opens on publicscreens.

	Can be forced to open on *any* screen. (Useful as you don't
	have to keep flicking between screens.)

	Displays ILBM clips.

	Each clip can be named, so even clips it can't display can be

	Can use any viewer to view the whole clip. (Such as Multiview)

	Can use different viewers for different types of clips

	Can be controlled completely from the keyboard (and mouse of course!)

	Can load clips into the Clipbook from any IFF file. 

	Can be told to automatically paste anything that's cut/copied
	directly into the Clipbook.

	It's a commodity, so has hotkey and other normal Commodity goodies
