Share Clip 1.2
There’s not much to brag about the GUI as the utility adopts a minimalist layout that gives you quick access to only a few parameters. You can also preview the clipboard text directly in the main window of the program and view information about the connection status and local IP address.
How it works
Share Clip makes use of a smart feature, called automatic clipboard monitoring mode, which reveals the clipboard text data right in the main window without requiring pasting actions from your side. The text content can be copied from any third-party programs that offer support for copying options, text editors or web browsers.
What’s more, you can undo your actions, cut, copy, paste or delete clipboard content, clear the entire workspace with just one click, as well as make use of hotkeys for fast actions (they cannot be reassigned).
When it comes to connection parameters, the tool gives you the possibility to enter the IP address of the target computer. In addition, Share Clip keeps a list with recently used connections so you can easily enable the preferred one.
All things considered, Share Clip offers a straightforward software solution for helping you share information between two computers, and is suitable for rookies and professionals alike. Bad news is that the utility hasn’t been updated for a long time, so you may encounter several compatibility issues especially on newer operating systems.

- Proper UNICODE support across all platforms! This means you can copy smart quotes, French quote characters, euro signs, math symbols etc. back and forth between Windows and OS X without losing them along the way. Note that your application needs to support these characters too, some old applications don't support extended character sets. Text in the normal ASCII range should work as normal regardless.
- I have set the font on the clipboard text preview to Courier, as the default windows system font does not support most UTF8 characters. Hopefully this will not cause any issues.
- The Share Clip window now shows the local IP address, so you can easily see the address you need to connect to.
- Please be aware that I have not tested the Linux build - if you have problems with it, please let me know.
