Screen Shots

Screenshot 1

This first screenshot shows Clipboard Format Spy's main window after copying some text from OpenOffice 2. The Rich Text clipboard format has been selected and right-clicked to display the context menu. The menu shows there are three viewers available for this format – the Rich Text "primary" viewer that renders the rich text, a Text viewer to display the RTF code as text and the Binary viewer that shows the raw data as hex. Each of these viewers can be seen below.
