CHS Feature Request: visual at copy, or, paste
« on: May 13, 2009, 12:55:06 PM »
For users who may not be able to or want an audio confirmation sound on capture, is there a way, or could there be a way, to have some kind of visual confirmation/indication "fire" when copying or pasting?  Thanks.

that's not a bad idea -- would a brief icon change be noticeable enough i wonder? it would be the easiest thing to do, but you'd really have to be looking at it to notice it i think.

Good idea, Icon change would suffice, but an optional tray balloon tip might be nice as well.

Hope it's OK to jump in here for quick comment.  I feel that one becomes accustomed to just about any visual change/flash/momentary icon color when you know it's going to or supposed to happen.  For instance all that might be necessary for most users may be a change in the tray "clipboard" icon color, or a momentary indication on near the position of the copy/or paste.

Well, I'm beginning to see how difficult it is to "whittle" down a lot of bright ideas, so, thats my take and hope it can help for the future.  Thanks for your attention.

Nick

Seems like a cursor change would make more sense than an icon change...  Folks will typically be using the mouse/watching the curser when selecting text to copy...  (or not?)  -steve

Thank you for implementing this change.  I have found it a useful indicator and my "eye" makes a quick look to see if I have made the copy.  Surprising how many times I have to re-do! Thanks again.  Nick
