The User Interface > ClipMate Classic
ClipMate Classic closely resembles previous versions of ClipMate, and takes up much less space than ClipMate Explorer. It features a menu, a toolbar, and a drop-down list of Clips (the ClipList). In the picture to the right, it is shown in the "dropped-down" state, where you see a ClipList and a slimmed-down version of the preview/edit window.

If you are in Explorer, use the "Switch Between Classic / Explorer" button [PICTURE clip0025.bmp] to go back and forth, or use Ctrl+E. If Classic is already loaded (but hidden from the screen), it should come up instantly. Otherwise there will be a slight delay while the Classic window is constructed and populated. If you use Classic frequently, you can opt to have it load at startup. See the Visual tab in the options dialog.
QuickPaste and Classic
Since QuickPaste is now universally available in any ClipList, including Explorer, ClipMate Classic no longer has a specific "quickpaste mode" as in version 6. If you would like to see dual ClipLists, or show/hide the viewer, you can do that easily. See View | Classic Options, and there are options for hiding/showing the second ClipList and the Viewer.
For convenience and familiarity for version 6 users, the old QuickPaste Hotkey, Ctrl+Shift+Q, will continue to bring up Classic in "drop-down" mode.
Classic and the ClipBar
When you click the drop-down arrow in the ClipBar, the list of clips that appears is actually ClipMate Classic. ClipMate Classic retains two sets of size/position/visibility - one for "regular Classic" and one for "ClipBar Classic". This allows it to appear to be integrated more closely with the ClipBar. So it's normal to see it slide around when you use it in different ways.
