A release candidate of Clippings 6.3 is now available for testers and early adopters craving the latest and greatest! This will become the official release unless any last-minute showstopper bugs are found.
Read on to learn what's new in version 6.3, and how to get it.
- Improvements to Clippings Manager. On Windows, Clippings Manager now remembers its window size and position (issue #314)

Clippings popup windows and dialogs will now be positioned within the browser window from which they were opened, instead of always centered on the primary display (issue #346).

- In Clippings Manager, the Details Pane can be shown or hidden by pressing CTRL+D (Command+D on macOS)
