I know this isn't what was mentioned, but I figure there are enough knowledgeable people looking here that maybe someone could help me with a similar request. I am in a situation where I have several clips I need to paste in various fields in an online form. It doesn't need to remain in memory beyond that particular set of pastes, but it does need to remain available while that set of clips is being used. What I am looking for is a very simple way to use ctrl-c to copy them into predefined slots not unlike Ditto, CHS, etc. Then, use an easy to reach keyboard shortcut to retrieve them from these slots (ctrl-1 for slot one, for example). What I don't want (that all these have) is mandatory view of all the clips. I want this to work behind the scenes (though being able to bring up a sample in case you forget what is where may be useful, just not default or mandatory to recover clips).
Probably the best way I can think of to accomplish this would be where I highlight what I want copied then press ctrl-c. Then I highlight the next piece and press ctrl-c, then the next until I have them all copied. Once they are copied, I can go back and press ctrl-1 to paste that in, then ctrl-2 to paste that in, etc. Once it is all done, when I press ctrl-c next time, it overwrites slot 1 with the new data. Alternatively there could be a hotkey for clearing the clipboard.
As implied, Ditto, ArsClip, etc. will accomplish this, in fact I use Ditto now. However, I find it tedious to copy it into the database, call up the database, then go to where I want to paste it and double click on the desired clip to get it to paste. In Ditto, the global quick-clips help but don't work quite right. For one thing, it doesn't work if the database isn't open (even though it should from what I read). Anyone know of anything like this?
