Clips

Clips would be much more useful if you could have them in a pane on the right so you could just mouse over and click one, instead of going through the context menu.

It would also be nice if you could specify the position of the cursor after pasting in the clip. I used some program where you could do this. There you
would define a clip:
prt <p class="rt">*</p>
and the cursor would be at the asterisk. to use a asterisk in the definition you escaped it \*.

But being able to put them in a pane so they are immediately available would be much more useful.

I believe you can leave the Clip editor (Tools:Clips) open and use it your way.
"Paste Clip" works at/on the selection

Yes, a two-click process is simpler than the context menu, but a single-click would be still better. I'll just use AutoHotKey instead, then I don't have to take my hands from the keyboard.
