I'm going to try to make a couple more screencast videos about CHS and maybe redo the old introductory video.  Just going over tips and tricks and some of the more unusual features.  Let me know if there are some features or operations you'd like me to hit on.

Old existing screencasts are here: http://www.donationcoder.com/screencasts/chs

I've added a couple of important features to the beta; i'd appreciate any bug reports.

New stuff:
  • [Feature] New clip grid menu items for creating new groups based on selection (moves clips) or search (creates a virtual group).
  • [Feature] Group tree drop target is now highlighting while dragging over it.
  • [Feature] Quick search/filter now provides a drop-down of favorite searches; set favorites in the Misc. Options 2 tab.
  • [Feature] Better statusbar info about selected group; reports total # clips in view and # selected.

That is a nice idea, putting it on my todo list.
104  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Question about "Add note" to right-click CHS tray menu on: October 05, 2014, 10:20:56 AM
And don't forget you can also use the quick search box at the top to filter the clips you want and then drag and drop them into a different group.

In fact you've given me a good great idea to make a new item in the right-click grid menu to help you to make a new VIRTUAL FOLDER group with just the searched for clips -- i think that will help people use the virtual folder idea.  Working on that now..
105  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Question about "Add note" to right-click CHS tray menu on: October 05, 2014, 09:53:12 AM
The Add Note feature is something that has always been in CHS, it's just normally triggered with a hotkey (see hotkey tab).
It's a way to quickly add a hand written note to the database to the group of your choice.
So you're not meant to use the clipboard at all in such a case.

108  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / How much value would there be in an optional floating small clip window? on: October 04, 2014, 06:23:35 PM
I think this has come up before, and I have been considering adding it.  It would be a non-trivial amount of work so i'm trying to figure out if it would be something that would be really useful to more than a handful of users.
The idea is for an optional tiny window (much smaller than the main window) which could be made-semi transparent and dragged around and resized on screen and would stay on top of other program windows.
It would show clips (only their excerpts, similar to what quick paste menu does) from a single group, and would server one and only one purpose: to let you double click an item to paste it into the last active window.

So essentially it is a hybrid of the quick paste (or group-specific popup) menu and the full window, and offers no features that the main window doesn't offer; the only benefit is that it would be much smaller than the normal window and could be left on top of the screen while you are working on something to allow you to quickly double-click a clip to paste it into the main window.

I'd like to hear from folks who think this would be useful or not..

The ftp feature of beyond compare and the ability to compare local and ftp servers, is wonderful.

I went to add it but then had second thoughts.. I'm wondering if a better solution might be a standalone tool that would parse a CSV file and create separate text files from it.. Would be a more general solution that could solve your needs but be more configurable and general pupose..

You just might end up identifying the cause to the item 2. Letter "v" is output on a Paste that I mentioned above.

i suspect so.  if you'd like to try the new beta, email me (mouser@donationcoder.com) and i'll send you a link.
113  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS conflicts with TinySpell+ when pasting a clip into target app with KEYBOARD on: October 03, 2014, 04:13:28 PM
Working with leopoldus over email we seem to have fixed the problem -- at least on initial testing.  Now we wait to see if it holds up...

As for visualizing a room or multiple rooms, i would *highly* recommend HomeDesigner; i didn't see anything about counter tops not being in suite version -- that would surprise me.  i suggest you look into that.

Using SketchUp was painful, but was the best tool i could find for sketching a single item with unique details (like a bed).

However the question is, what exactly happens

Hopefully that is a question we will be able to partly answer as we experiment with fixes.
If I had to guess, my guess is that TinySpell is performing some action between the multiple steps that CHS performs as it tries to paste into the target application.
CHS has to switch the focus to the target app, wait for the target app to get focus, then send some keystrokes that involve pretending that the Control key is pressed.  It could be that Tiny Spell is intruding into this and interrupting one of the actions.
Based on your described behavior, it sounds like maybe its doing something to the keystate to cancel the keyboard ControlKey-Down state.

That's just a guess though.  Adding a small delay between steps might tell us a lot more, or might solve the problem completely.

Thanks for reminding me -- i started adding it but then didn't finish -- i'll try to get to it this weekend.
117  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS conflicts with TinySpell+ when pasting a clip into target app with KEYBOARD on: October 03, 2014, 10:58:36 AM
Following up on Iain's observations, one of the thing I could add to help narrow down the problem is an option user-defined delay between some of the paste actions that happen during a paste (simulating keypresses, etc.).  That might help identify the problem.
118  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: CHS conflicts with TinySpell+ when pasting a clip into target app with KEYBOARD on: October 03, 2014, 10:51:32 AM
That's an interesting discovery, and the first time i've heard of it.
The fact that it happens with CHS but not some other clipboard tools, and that it doesn't occur if you paste with mouse suggests that it's something related to the way CHS simulates the press of Control+V in the target application..
Can you email me (mouser@donationcoder.com) so that I might send you some test versions to try?

Also, can you walk me through exactly how you are selecting and trying to paste clips using the keyboard?  Are you using Ctrl+Alt+Q hotkey to bring up the quick paste menu and then selecting with the enter key? Or with a specific # key? does it make a difference?

Oops!
I left in a debug message when the capture wasn't found to be solid -- i think thatt must be causing the problems.
Can you try to redownload again and see if i've fixed the bugs?

yes, exactly the same.

Great.
Thank you for your patience!

Am I likely to need to do the same with Screenshot Captor? It messed around the same at first but has been quieter for the last day or so.
it seems likely, but it might be worth leaving it as it and seeing if it behaves.
123  DonationCoder.com Software / Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Presets not saved - CHS on: October 02, 2014, 02:02:18 PM
ah my mistake.  so just edit ConfigDir.ini no need to rename it.
124  DonationCoder.com Software / Screenshot Captor / Re: LATEST VERSION INFO THREAD - ScreenshotCaptor - v4.8.8 Beta - Sep 30, 2014 on: October 02, 2014, 12:53:26 PM
So, one of the things in the new version is, it will (unless the option is disabled), check each newly captured image to see if it is all one solid color, and if so, it will display an error and suggest that the user may have a security program blocking Screenshot Captor from capturing images.

This was added because of the recent trend of security apps blocking screenshot taking without telling the user what is going on.  The check for a solid color capture seems to take place fast enough that it's not noticeable (milliseconds), so it shouldn't be a concern (though it can be disabled from options).
