gli Appunti
Explanation:
if it is the Italian translation you want:
official Macintosh and Microsoft translation is Appunti (capital A for Macintosh).
Used in various applications (Adobe, Macromedia, etc.) as Copy to Clipboard, Paste from Clipboard, etc.
Copia sugli Appunti, Incolla dagli Appunti, etc.

In a general, colloquial sense, and often in the trade press, you can also found "la clipboard", but this is a colloquial expression, NOT to be used in actual sw documentation.

(If it is the English translation of this colloquial Italian term, then it is simply Clipboard.)

It refers to the memory area used for copy/paste operation in and between applications. Some applications (i.e. Illustrator) use their own format for copying objects to the clipboard, and you would normally get a message such as "intendete convertire il contenuto degli Appunti per renderlo disponibile in altre applicazioni?" when you quit the program, so that whatever was copied from, say, Illustrator, can be pasted in a Word document.

clipboard


Explanation:
Dopo aver reperito un certo numero di citazioni, con il bottone "Add to Clipboard" e' possibile memorizzarle nel clipboard, un'area temporanea che viene cancellata dopo un'ora di inattivita' e che puo' contenere fino a 500 citazioni. Dal clipboard le citazioni possono essere ordinate (per mezzo del menu a tendina "Sort") per rivista, autore e data di pubblicazione (dopo aver scelto il criterio di ordinamento e' necessario premere di nuovo il pulsante Display). http://www.lotusnet.org/it/reperio/search/msg/20000826.htm

CLIPBOARD
Related Terms
copy

cut

paste


A special file or memory area (buffer) where data is stored temporarily before being copied to another location. Many word processors, for example, use a clipboard for cutting and pasting. When you cut a block of text, the word processor copies the block to the clipboard; when you paste the block, the word processor copies it from the clipboard to its final destination. In Microsoft Windows and the Apple Macintosh operating system, the Clipboard (with a capital C) can be used to copy data from one application to another.
The Macintosh uses two types of clipboards. The one it calls the Clipboard can hold only one item at a time and is flushed when you turn the computer off. The other, called the Scrapbook, can hold several items at once and retains its contents from one working session to another.
