SuperClip allows you to save images from any source
on one convenient clipboard. Convert images from one type to another for
your use. SuperClip allows you also to capture screens, copy windows and
copy screen areas. With the SuperClip you can name your object (graphics,
text,...) and automatically SuperClip adds them to your SuperClip library.

library. You create them by copying items from any application or window

In QuikScripts, the SuperClip items will have the special SuperClip character
next to them along with the text used in the SuperClip item name as the
Long Form (see below). They may not be edited, however they can be deleted.

menu must be invoked (Ctrl: see above) in order to delete an item from
the library or change its name:
If SuperClip is not installed or loaded the SuperClip symbol will not
appear in QuikScripts or Create New Abbreviation. Any attempt to use a
SuperClip Short Form will be ignored. That is if the Short Form is typed
in it will be left alone and no action will be taken by QuikScripts (since
SuperClip is not then available to help QuikScripts).
Operating Reminder! If there is a SuperClip item in QuikScripts (but
deleted from the SuperClipboard) or if the SuperClip item has been changed
in QuikScripts (using the Change command see above figure) then invoking
that particular Short Form will simply PASTE WHATEVER IS IN THE CLIPBOARD.
The SuperClipboard will only be updated from the Create New Abbreviation
dialog box when in QuikScripts.
