Alternatives to Ditto
« on: June 24, 2010, 11:04:38 AM »
After install the local area network and some other sort of programs I am having problems with Ditto I don't resolve in the specific forum.
Sometimes clip are order changed and when invoke one clip with the hotkeys are not corresponding. This is very annoying.
Sometimes hangs under xp sp3. Or the paste method don't obey me.
I am very used to this splendid program, specially to the keyboards short keys to paste quickly the last ten clips. CTRL+1 , CTRL+2 , CTRL+3 to 0
And the utility to share clips with the other pc is very useful.
And is portable and I can share in each pc between my systems xp sp3 (by my original terror to windows xp pro i am used to have several times the same system in each pc).
So. I am looking for an alternative to Ditto :

a) Portable
b) with ten keyboards short keys to paste the last 10 clips. (or more)(must be the same CTRL+1 to CTRL+0)
c) Plays in local area network sharing the clips.

is it possible ? I was thinking about similar programs from Mouse zone, but I would like to receive a first advice to help me to select.

Best Regards.

ac'tivAid has an extension ("MultiClipboard") which does that.

Not quite as you want - ArsClip, which is both free and portable, has a single hotkey, Control-Shift-Z by default, that pops up a list of clips where each clip is numbered and has the icon of the program it was clipped from.  Entering the number pastes the clip.

[Edit]
If you Enable the Tooltip Popup in Configuration, you can move up and down the clip list with Ctrl-Shift-X and Ctrl-Shift-C (again by default), pasting the clip you want, when you get to it, by pressing Shift on its own.  But, that's getting a fair way away from the method I understand you to use now with Ditto.

 :)

Note : Ditto saves un unlimited number of clips. And send clips between the terminal in the local area network.
Note : The keys combination CTRL+1 to CTRL+0 don't go well. Are different the numbers from the numpad that from the keyboard and don't go well because when I put WINDOWS+SHIFT+2 (number from the keyboard alfa numeric appear " )

I don't see function to send clips from one terminal to the other and don't have ten short key : CTRL+1 , CTRL+2, etc to paste ten clips.

Hi Contro

According to the softmaker  textBEAST woks well on Network
Here is the site an if you like it there is a special offer on June 27

http://www.asbware.com/

I use Phrase Express in local mode and have specific utilities for format text automation.
I don't the shortkeys CTRL+1 to 0

Only 20 clips from the clipboard. With ditto i can configure. At the present moment I use 500.
With Phrase Express there is no limitation.

Or perhaps i have don't understand well because has unlimited clips too :

What's special about textBEAST?

    * Unlike other clipboard managers, textBEAST can not only store an endless number of clips, but it can also very rapidly access these stored items so they can be pasted quickly. You can organize your clips into meaningful groups with your own custom names, allowing you to navigate very quickly to the clips you need. This makes textBEAST extremely well-suited for  boilerplate text used in letters, emails, and reports. This is much faster than performing a search for needed items, and much easier than having to remember "autotext" shortcut commands.
    * In addition to its function as a clipboard manager, textBEAST can also be used for document automation, and is used in this manner by a number of our current clients in the legal and medical professions.
    * Navigation buttons are customized by typing directly onto them.
    * Unlike "clipboard extenders" that keep everything that passes through the Windows clipboard, textBEAST copies only what you want, avoiding unnecessary clutter, but also keeps the last 20 items that passed through the Windows clipboard in the "auto clipboard".

I have no clear.

I have found this :

TextBeast share clips on the net ?

Hi Contro

textBEAST can access a data file on a network and the data file can be opened from a textbeast on different computers, but not at the same time.  We may be able to make this possible, depending on the complexity and demand

Hi Contro

If you clarify more regarding Share Clips on The Net, then will be good, So how did you used this function in Ditto.

Okis.

I have three pc : two desktop and one portatile.
When capture a new clip automatically is sent to the other two terminals. In wire o wireless mode.
I use also Stickies to take notes that allows me to send notes over the net knowing the IP or the email of the other part.

 :P

So in the Ditto Control window appear all the clips from the other terminals in each pc. You are sharing continously the clips in the local area network.

I am smiling again .

I think my problems with autocad 2002 , ditto and the clips in the net are because a bad configuration in the clips over the net.

I only have three pc in net and was repeating all twice.
And sending clips to the same pc .

Now I am proofing. I think now goes well.

I'll inform. This was a terrible problem for me.

Please note that I have updated the post Re: Clipboard Managing-Which one?.
UPDATE 2010-12-23: I just found ClipGuru v2.9.0 as at 2010-03-10 on freewarefiles.com.
I have also saved this for people to download from Box.net in case it goes from freewarefiles.com.
