Does anyone know of a simple clipboard manager that supports .cdr objects. I've just been playing around with Ditto, but can't get it to support CorelDraw.Just want to be able to store multiple object/s on the clipboard without them being converted to a bitmap. Possible with text and bitmaps but is it possible with CorelDraw objects.
soething like the Connect tray included on the newest versions of CorelDRAW?
Not sure what that does.. There are several ways of saving objects in Draw, but a cdr compatible clipboard manager would be very useful.
It's amazing that my Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone can do this, but neither Windows nor OS X natively support it.

I know about clipboard managers that handle text and some types of images, and some other clipboard formats, but I am unaware of one that can save multiple clips of the full "custom data" that CorelDRAW can copy/paste. If you ever find out about such a clipboard manager, then please let us know!
You mention in another post that there are other ways of saving objects in Draw. I wrote a little bit of VBA code to make it easier to use one of those ways: storing the objects in CorelDRAW documents.
When run, this macro carries out a "Save As Copy" of the active document, including only the active selection. The filename is based on the name of the active document, and also adds a time stamp - e.g., "From MyDocument 2018-05-24 230256.cdr". In the current version of the macro, the folder path is specified as a constant.
The files that are created can then be imported into CorelDRAW documents using drag-and-drop from that folder. It's not exactly like copying/pasting, to the extent that the imported content comes in as a group.
VIDEO: Save Selection To Temporary
For recording that video, I used DeskPins to keep that folder in front of the CorelDRAW window. For CorelDRAW versions that have it, another alternative is to use the Connect docker to access the contents of that folder.
That's very useful. CD12 has the Scrapbook Manager that is very similar. By dragging and dropping into the Scrapbook docker window you can save selections to a predetermined folder. You can then just drag selections from the Scrapbook window to the page when required.The only issue is that it uses a default icon and no visual preview. Each selection saved is named scrap1, scrap2 etc, so not even a name that relates to the object saved. It has its uses, and does save permanently, but not quite a clipboard manager.
