Hi,
i do use a nice app named "HovText" that can modify the clipboard to store text-only.
This app has an quick icon to toggle between regular clipboard (with formatting) and text-only clipboard.

I'd prefer following behaviour:
[CTRL-C] once -> regular clipboard.
[CTRL-C] twice (e.g. within the mouse double-click time) -> text-only clipboard.

That would really be a huge increase in comfort, isn't it?

Could anyone achieve that piece of magic?

Regards
Michel

My favorite Clipboard Manager ArsClip (just a 860 KB exe) offers an extra hotkey for pasting as plain text.

Example configuration:
CTRL + V = Paste (normal)
WIN + V = Paste as plain text

Some other features:
  • Multiple permanent items groups
  • Picture, RichText, File Copy, Unicode, HTML support
  • Keypress emulation
  • Form Mode for pasting multiple fields
  • Highly configurable

 smiley Not pretending to have all the answers, but isn't it more natural to give this option to Paste instead of Copy (and Cut)?


PlainPaste
- Press Ctrl-V once to paste regularly, Ctrl-V twice within 1/3 of a second to paste as text.

Great idea, by the way!

Hi
i do not mind if it is done on the ctrl-c or the ctrl-v side, maybe the second option would be more tricky to programm, isn't it!
in the first option, after the first click the data is in one defined place (the clipboard) with the second option the data would be in the receiving programm...

 smiley Try PlainPaste v1.1.

I've just combined PlainPaste and PlainCopy into one app, and added PlainCut.

[edit: skrommel you specified the .exe name in the img link so it wasn't showing; i've changed it to gif - mouser]

Tip for some other functions:
1. When you have copied a file/files, running the app will paste only the filename/filenames (with full path)
2. Make possible to run the app => Removes formatting, pastes the text and exits. => You could place a shortcut to the app on your desktop and assign it a hotkey: CTRL-ALT-V for instance.

The hints are stolen from a RemoveClipboardformatting app that I does not remember where I got:-(

I have two slight modification ideas:
- change the three hotkeys to "tap Ctrl, then Ctrl+V [or C or X]" (with the current shortcut, the slight pause when normally pasting throws me off)
- (less important) a few toggle-able string processing commands (like collapse multiple newlines to just one, delete beginning and trailing newline(s), or maybe just user-customizable regexp capability)

I second both of awefawe's suggestions.  The user-definable newline collapsing would helps tremendously when copy-pasting from an email.

You might want to look at mouser's Clipboard Help and Spell because it can accept user-defined filters, so you can roll your own.  Or try Clippy, dedicated clipboard modifier, which offers these features:

  - Align right
  - Case capitalise
  - Case invert
  - Case lower

  - Count of words
  - Convert all spaces to tabs
  - Convert leading spaces to tabs
  - Convert tabs to spaces
  - Quote
  - Remove blank lines
  - Remove duplicate lines
  - Remove line

  - Strip HTML
