+ action="simul">&Ctrl;&Alt;<keycap>V</keycap> </keycombo>. Previous
+ clipboard entries are shown at the top of the pop-up menu which
+ appears. Selecting one of these copies it to the clipboard, from
+ where it can be pasted into any &kde; or X application as
+ usual.</para>
+
+<para>You can search through the clipboard history by opening it
+(click on &klipper;) and typing your query. The results are updated as
+you type. In case you're wondering how to use the accelerator keys in
+the &klipper; menu, just press &Alt; and the accelerator you want. For
+example, to clear the clipboard history when the &klipper; menu is
+open, press <keycombo action="simul">&Alt;<keycap>L</keycap>

+<title>Actions</title>
+
+<para>&klipper; can perform actions on the contents of the clipboard,
+based on whether they match a particular regular expression. For
+example, any clipboard contents starting with <quote>http://</quote> can
+be passed to &Netscape; or &konqueror; as &URL;s to open.</para>
+
+<para>To use this feature, just copy a &URL; or filename to the
+clipboard. If there is a matching regular expression in &klipper;'s
+list, a menu will appear showing you the options you have (&eg; Open
+&URL; in &konqueror;, open &URL; in &Netscape;). Use the mouse or
+keyboard to select the option you want, and &klipper; will run the
+program you have selected, opening the address pointed to by the
+clipboard contents.</para>
+
+<para>If you do not want to perform any actions on the clipboard
+contents, select <guimenuitem>Do Nothing</guimenuitem> on the pop-up menu
+to return to what you were doing before. If you leave the menu, it will
+disappear, leaving you to continue your work. You can change the time
+that the menu remains for in the <guilabel>Configure Klipper...</guilabel>
+dialog, with the option <guilabel>Timeout for action pop-ups</guilabel>
+under the <guilabel>General</guilabel> tab.</para>
+
+<para>Actions can be disabled completely by clicking on &klipper; and
+selecting <guimenuitem>Actions Enabled</guimenuitem>, or by pressing
+<keycombo action="simul">&Ctrl;&Alt;<keycap>X</keycap></keycombo>.</para>
+
+<para>Clipboard contents which match a regular expression can also be
+edited before performing an action on them. Select <guimenuitem>Edit contents...</guimenuitem> on the &klipper; pop-up menu, and you can
+change the clipboard contents in the dialog which appears, before
+clicking the <guibutton>OK</guibutton> button to run the appropriate
+action.</para>

+<para>
+In order to change clipboard/selection behavior, select

+and in the dialog box that appears, select the
+<guilabel>General</guilabel> tab. Selecting <guilabel>Separate clipboard and
+selection</guilabel> makes the clipboard and selection function as completely
+separate buffers as described above. With this option set, the option
+<guilabel>Ignore selection</guilabel> will prevent &klipper; from
+including the contents of the selection in its clipboard history and from
+performing actions on the contents of the selection. Selecting
+<guilabel>Synchronize contents of the clipboard and the selection</guilabel>
+causes the clipboard and selection buffers to always be the same, meaning that
+text in the selection can be pasted with either the
