Automatically remove clipboard formatting

ClipboardFusion is a simple free tool which can automatically remove the formatting from text copied to your clipboard. And so if you copy a paragraph from a web page and paste it into a document, say, you won't get the links, colours, and other formatting: it'll just be plain text, nothing else at all.

This can work entirely automatically, too. Once installed, the program runs in the background, monitoring your clipboard. Copy some formatted text there, and ClipboardFusion will immediately recognise this, remove any formatting, and display a pop-up message to warn you that this has happened.

In some situations you may want to keep the formatting, of course, but the program can easily be reconfigured to suit your needs. You might set it up to scrub the clipboard only when an item is copied there twice, for instance. Or you could disable the automatic scrubbing entirely, and have the program remove clipboard formatting only when you press a particular hotkey.

This kind of cleanup capability is just the start, though. ClipboardFusion can also be set to replace any given text with a predefined string. So if you're regularly copying text containing your old email address, say, you could set up the program to automatically replace it with your new one, an excellent time-saver.

If you need more power, the program even has the capability to run macros on your text, transforming it in any way you like. These are written in C#, so not exactly aimed at beginners, but there are some useful prebuilt macros to help you get started (change text case, make comma delimited, sort, replace spaces with hyphens, and many more).

There's also a more powerful commercial edition available, ClipboardFusion Pro ($9 for a lifetime license). The big addition is that it saves your clipboard text online, making it accessible from other computers. And it's also available for many more platforms: OS X, Linux, iOS, Android, Blackberry, and from within a browser.

v4.1 (Changelog)

  • Fix: Improved the speed of the Popup Window with images
  • Fix: Resolved some DPI scaling issues in Windows 10
  • Fix: Clearing the clipboard will no longer cause issues with images in the Clipboard History
  • Fix: The Tray Icon will now update correctly when selecting Clipboard History and Online Items

ClipboardFusion is great at removing formatting from clipboard text, and its search and replace feature may be useful, too

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
