I'm well versed with Office and the clipboard but this issue is frustrating me as I can't figure out why it's happening nor any way to stop it. The clipboard is set to Collect without showing but to provide the notification on the taskbar and ideally I don't want to change that. However, while it will collect clips okay within 1 session, I'm finding now (and think this only started this past week or so) that it clears the entire clipboard of items on closing Word - I've tried it now a few times but haven't had any success in changing this and since I quite often collect items for use much later on, and don't want to keep Word open, it's a real issue now for me to try and resolve.
I've hunted everywhere within the Options but couldn't find any setting that might be useful - anyone any knowledge of this and how to stop it happening??
