PhraseExpander Like PhraseExpress, this program is more than just a clipboard manager. This is a very cool program, and might just end up replacing my trusty ArsClip + AutoCorrect.ahk combo.
PhraseExpress PhraseExpress is more than just a clipboard manager.

The program seems to have some issues with large clips. For example, if I copy a large amount of text to the clipboard, and then want to paste it somewhere using PhraseExpress, the program takes for ever (while it tells me it is ‘executing’ the current clip). During this time, I also cannot type in other programs. This is obviously a deal breaker.
