It used to be one of my favorite features!

Formerly, from the C# (for example) code editor in the IDE, open the 'Tool Box' tab, and there was a stack of all the things you'd put on the clipboard while editing. 

I can't seem to figure out where it went too...hopefully not the bit bucket...

TIA,

Howard Hoffman

Howard,

The clipboard ring still exists, though it's no longer exposed through the toolbox.  In order to access it, hit Ctrl+Shift+V multiple times and it will cycle through the clipboard ring.

Hope that helps!

In VS 2005 is there a way to clear the clipboard ring

That's pity that Clipboard ring is not visible in VS 2005.

Why the convinient functionality was removed from IDE

Do you have any plans to make it visible again in  a future release

If the Clipboard ring is no longer available this is a travesty. This was such a useful and time saving feature that it is incomprehensible that it has been removed. I truly hope that an update to VS2005 will put it back.

I dont think the feature is completely off the IDE. All you need to do is switch back to Code Editor and make the Toolbox visible. Now copy the text you want to work with and in the toolbox, right click and select Paste. This could be repeated. The only thing that have got eliminated is the tab 'Clipboard Ring' :-( and not the feature :-)

HTH.
