Like the Windows Clipboard, the TreePad Clipboard acts as temporary storage for data on its way to final destinations. Whereas the Windows Clipboard is a repository for text and images, the TreePad Clipboard is somewhat more specialized and holds nodes, subtrees, accompanying images and even node addresses. By having this second channel, TreePad reduces data congestion and enables you to use both simultaneously.
The TreePad Clipboard retains its data even after you exit the program, unless you tell it not to. This means that you can create a frequently used form in an article, give the node a name such as My template, copy it to the TreePad Clipboard, return next day and continue pasting it in where needed!
What and where is the TreePad Clipboard?
The TreePad Clipboard consists of one or more TreePad files with a reserved name and location.
As soon as you Copy or Cut a node or subtree, a file named clipboard.hjt is created in the Windows folder for temporary files until you or TreePad deletes it.
If the copied node or subtree contains user-assigned node icons or images, a second file, clipboard.tpz, is created to store them. If the next node or subtree copied to the TreePad Clipboard does not contain any such icons or images, clipboard.tpz will automatically be deleted.
