Screenshot of clipboard in MS Word
Hi, Excuse me if this is the wrong place for an enhancement request but it is where I ended up, being new here.
The request is for an integrated clipboard manager as in MS Word 2003. This enables a number of clipboard items to be stored and be accessible from a side panel, so that by simply clicking on one of the clipboard items it pastes it into the document.
I am aware that there are clipboard manager apps out there but having one integrated into the Word window saves a stack of time on some of the documents I use and is the only reason I do not junk MS Word completely. The screenshot shows the clipboard panel as it appears in Word.
Regards & best wishes
Operating System: All
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
Thanks for reporting! I altered the title a bit, to make it more sense.
I also mark this report as Enhancement request.
I tried to search for already-existing enhancement reports, but I couldn't find any. Therefore I mark it as NEW. Also I set this to 'high' because of the difficulty to implement such feature.
In 4.4.1 still no clipboard manager.
It will not be a problem when using Linux desktop (KDE/Gnome) since we can use the system clipboard manager. However it will be a problem running under Windows since no such system manager.
Adding design team to the loop. This seems a bit out of scope. Maybe best left to a 3rd party extension?

The clipboard is out of scope and up to the operating system. So yes, let's resolve this as WF.
