I just got started with using clippings today.  I made clipping file for each of the loci of systematic theology.  One thing that puzzles me, however, is when I do the right-click to save to a clipping file, only one of my clipping files appears; e.g. in the screenshot below, only the Christology file shows.  Why?  Shouldn't more of them appear?  What about all my other clipping files?

I too wish it would give us more than one to select from but it always defaults to the last one used. I guess the program assumes that you always want to add new clippings to the last one you had open. Usually, for me, this is true because I tend to title my clippings as a topic.

I don't have my desktop near me at the moment, but what happens when you have multiple clipping documents open?

If you have multiple clipping documents open you are prompted with the option to add a clipping to each of them (I haven't checked if there is an upper limit here)

At the last count (a minute ago) I had 97 Clippings files in my Documents. These are compiled for Sermon Preparation, Academic Research, Topic Exploration, Quotations. These are entitled carefully so as to produce a readily accessible list in the Documents menu (as in the screenshot:

I always have the Quotations Clippings file open in every layout. I then open (or create) the particular Clippings file(s) that I expect to be using.

Then when I find something that I want to add to my Clippings file, it is easy to right-click and add them. See screenshot:

Tagging particular Clippings items in the file, enables the Clippings that are of particular interest to be displayed. See screenshot:

Hope that is some help. This method works for me. Big Smile

Every blessing

I can't speak for the OP but that is pretty cool! Thanks, I had never thought of doing it that way.
