METZ Clp2File is a utility which will copy a bitmap from the
clipboard to a file. The bitmap saved by Clp2File can be used
with the various METZ Software application screen savers.

PLEASE NOTE: This application only supports Windows version 2.0
bitmaps, although the bitmaps can be displayed by the METZ Software
application when running under either version of Windows. We have
released a Windows 3.0 version called Clp2Disk to support our
Windows 3.0 products.

Using Clp2File

If you wish to create your own custom bitmap for use with the
Screen Blanking option available in several METZ Software products
please follow these steps:

1. Using a graphics application such as Microsoft Paint, create
an image.
2. Cut or Copy the image to the clipboard.
3. Run Clp2File. If the clipboard contains a bitmap, Clp2File
will display it on the screen.
4. Select Save As to place the bitmap in a file.
5. The file you saved can now be used with the METZ Software
products. (All METZ Software products will be re-released
to correctly support this bitmap file format.)

Non-registered users
This product is provided at no charge to METZ Software users to
support the METZ Software products. Use for any other purpose requires
payment of a registration fee. Please contact METZ Software for more

------------ METZ Clipboard to File version history ------------------

Version 1.21
* Maintenance release, no major changes.

Version 1.2
* An Open option option has been added to the File menu. If the
bitmap you open was created under a different display resolution
than the one you are currently using, the bitmap will not be
legible. The bitmaps saved by Clp2File are not device independent,
so a bitmap created on an EGA screen will not appear correctly
under VGA, and vice versa.

Version 1.11
* An empty clipboard option has been added to the File menu.

Version 1.0 - released 7/90

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
