When you run SuperClip(double clicking on SuperClip icon), you might see a menu something like this

On the left you see a group of graphic windows with a slider bar on their right. On the right you might see(if the graphics are named) typical named items with dates and times with a slider bar on their right.
The named items on the right are your SuperClip library. You create them by copying items from any application or window and then naming them by double clicking on them in the SuperClip board. This library is automatically saved when you leave SuperClip and the available titles are recalled when SuperClip is launched. To load an item from the hard disk to the SuperClipboard simply double click on the title or drag and drop the item from the right to the left. When the graphic exceeds the size of the graphic display window small sliders appear in the item display window. These sliders are active and may be used to scroll the graphic through the display window.

File menu:

Open allows you to load graphic and text from any storage device in your computer. That is from drives a-z and any subdirectories. SuperClip support a list of Data format including:

Meta files(*.wmf,*.emf),

Save As permits you to export the SuperClip files you have named in any storage device. You may also select the format as above in Open. Remember SuperClip will automatically save all named SuperClip items in the Library in the SuperClip directory when you quit or leave Windows. In addition all unnamed items (up to the memory limit you set in Options-see below) will be saved and restored at your next session along with the Library (named items).

Options gives you the opportunity to set the maximum memory limits (we recommend no less then 1024 Kbytes for graphics applications, more is better).

Un-named items will be automatically saved at the end of a session up to the option limit set here. During the session if the limit is approached or exceeded SuperClip will throw away the oldest (first) items to make way for any new items.

Using SuperClipboard with QuikScripts

To use SuperClip within QuikScripts go to the Edit or New abbreviation dialog. Make the Short Form
. Start the Long Form by holding down Alt and pressing [ followed by the text of the title of the SuperClip item. As shown below the Alt [ will be replaced by a SuperClip icon character and the characters will become the name of the item in the SuperClip library.

Click OK. Whenever the Short Form is typed the SuperClip item designated will be pasted in place of the Short Form. If SuperClip is not loaded then nothing will be substituted for the Short Form and the special SuperClipboard character will not appear in QuikScripts.
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. Please note that an item deleted or changed from the QuikScripts Word List is NOT deleted or changed in the SuperClip library. The SuperClip 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.
