I'm using Ditto Clipboard Manager and wish to share the clipboard on multiple machines on my home network. I've heard that you can do this but haven't found any help on it.

You know... you might be able to do it with DropBox.

  1. Install DropBox and set up an account. You get 2 GB for free.
  2. Move the Ditto program folder into your Shared DropBox folder
  3. That will now be available to all other computers in which you have your DropBox running.

I was unable to sync the db since DropBox couldn't sync the file because Ditto have it open. –  Eduardo Molteni Feb 21 '13 at 21:34

Bring up the list (Ctrl + ' or whatever). Right click and export. Save file and transfer to other machine. You can then import by right clicking on the notification icon.

As for syncing automatically, there is the friends tab in options but I don't really think it helps. You can specify the database location though, so maybe setting that as the same network location for all machines could work?

You can do what David said, or you can install the portable version, and create links in the startup folder to run the same version on both machines. Works like a charm!

I found the best way to do it is to copy the db from one computer to another. navigate to /users/your name/appdata/roaming/ditto/ditto.db and copy "ditto.db"

the path may be different dependinbg on your OS, but the point is you can copy the database, including whatever hot keys you have programed.

reverse the process on the other computer & paste it.

I understand you can make the computers to sync ditto if they are on the same network, but I have not been able to get that to work.

I believe you have to be running Ditto on both machines.

Done that. Now how do I sync the DB's or refer to the same DB? –  Guy Oct 8 '09 at 2:49
