    I thought cut or copy would replace what's on the clipboard. That doesn't seem to happen all the time. Under what circumstances does "copy" NOT clear the clipboard first?

    Sorry, but I've never seen this behavior. Whenever I copy something, as far as I know or can tell, it overwrites whatever is on the clip board.

    Sorry, but got nothing else. Except, maybe you didn't hit the Copy button just right and so it disappeared with you thinking it had copied? I've had that happen when I am not too careful of where I press...

    Indeed and frequently. I have since found two apps that work for this issue.

    1) Called "Clipboard", it has other features as well, but to clear or "clean" as they say, just open the app and hit the "settings" button
    and on the next page, hit "clean". I've not used the other features so I can't comment there...

    2) Called "iClear", SWEET! It lets you see what is currently on the clipboard before clearing it!

    HTH!

    Respectfully,
