1. Due to the recent site upgrade, the iPadForums (iPF) App will no longer work. The new iPadForums.net website has been designed from the ground up to work perfectly from any mobile, tablet, or desktop computer using the built in internet browser. Create a shortcut to iPadForums.net on your home screen by following these steps: Create an icon for iPadForums.net

I have another question....

    Great! Where the hell is it?

    That's a whole 'nother ipad and plan for Accessible Clipboard!
    :D That iPad is $1199, unlimited clipboard access not to exceed 1gb/month $97.99/month

    (sorry, couldn't resist - for those who don't realize, the above is not true)

    the clipboard is in the system memory. Whenever you tap-hold and paste, whatever is in the clipboard gets pasted.

    The clip board just holds the last thing you saved so that it can be pasted where ever (I think that is one word?) you want.

    Clear as mud, eh?

    The clipboard is like a one item treasure box. You put something in it, but you have to Paste it somewhere to find out what it is. It remembers what the item is when you last pressed Copy. It could have been 10 seconds ago, it also could have been three days ago.

    AFIK, you can only get the last thing you put in there. Whenever you save something, it pushes out what was in there.

    Confused yet???

    It depends on what it is. But the cheapest (free) and universal way is to paste it into your Mail app. Start an email and Paste the items in the new email. It will paste your pic or text. Then you can save the the email as a draft for storage later.

    Or if you have an app that handles pics and text (like a third party notebook type app), you can paste it there.

    If you put several items into the clipboard, you'll only get what you last put in. Sorry.

    So really the clip board holds just one thing? So it should say:

    "saved to your clip board so kiss it good bye"

    Lol!

    There is no clip board. That is just the term used to say that the item you wanted copied is copied and that the iPad will remember it until you decide to paste it somewhere. Its not an actual thing that can be accessed. If you have used Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, Me, 98, 95 or Apple OS8, OS9, OSX or any linux distro or Android or iOS3.x or iOS4.x or Windows Mobile or Symbian or Palm OS, it pretty much works the same way.
