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
Mike (Gonzologist)

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.

Kind regards,

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.
