Look at some of the code in NoteTab's Libraries such as
SampleCode and Utilities. Also see Help under Clip Language -
Introduction, Clip Basics, and Create Clipbook Libraries.
You can download the Clip Class from the following link. Be sure
to read the Introduction. Open ClipClass.clb and then click on
the Clip Class Outline Clip to open the Outline. It may be a
little slow for you, but it will get you started and some of the
references it mentions.
All the contents of the zip file go in NoteTab's Libraries folder:

Text or graphics elements designed to be used over and over. For
example, you could create a boilerplate for a fax message that
contains all the standard fax information that doesn't change,
such as your name, address, and phone number. Then whenever you
want to create a new fax, you need only insert the boilerplate
rather than retyping the information.
A boilerplate is similar to a template, but whereas a template
holds layout and style information, a boilerplate contains actual
text or graphics. Many applications, however, combine the two
