Slightly OT: Clipboard Ring?

Whatever happened to the Clipboard Ring that used to be in the VS.NET toolbox?
I haven't seen it in such a long time that I'm wondering whether MS removed
it from VS.NET 2005. Is there a favorite clipboard ring replacement amongst
R# fans? I bet someone could build an interesting clipboard ring plugin using
R#, maybe even a code tree like the Find Usages result that could show where
it was copied from, pasted to, etc.

My understanding of the Clipboard Ring is limited, but I believe R#'s clipboard popup supercedes the behavior. You can try it if you have the IDEA KB Layout by using CTRL_SHIFT_V.

If you want drag and drop capabilities, you can open your toolbox, create a tab, and start dragging code to and from it

VS2005 also introduced code snippets which are like live templates.

Hope that helps
Ciao

I, in fact, have confirmed the Clipboard ring is no longer accessible via the Toolbox in VS 2005, it is only accessible through the shortcut CTRL-SHIFT-V, which R# replaces with their own version of the clipboard ring (which I find considerably better than cycling through a bunch of old clipboard text copies)

I didn't even know of the R# replacement! I will have to check it out.
