From the Ethervane Spellchecker dictionaries readme.txt:

Quote
If you change the default installation folder, Echo will not be able to find the dictionaries, and the spell checkoing feature will be disabled.

There is no "Clear History" command in the icon menu. There is "Clear Clipboard" - is this what's causing the problem you're describing?

What happens when you click the icon afterwards? Nothing at all?

(Remember you can always bring up Echo by pressing ehe activation hotkey, there should be no need to restart. But if I can find a problem with the tray icon, I'll fix it.)

I am not a big fan of that. I think the close icon should close and the minimize icon should minimize, if you know what I mean :) It's irritating when you try to exit the app and it only minimizes instead.

That said, I don't think it would make a difference in Echo, because Echo will automatically minimize when you switch to another application (or just click anywhere outside it, or press Escape). So instead of clicking the Close icon, it's much easier to just do nothing at all, and Echo will minimize by itself.

- What version of Windows, please? 32 or 64 bit?

- When the problem happens, can you still bring up Echo using the activation hotkey (Win+Insert by default) and work with Echo normally? This is important, since it would tell me where in Echo the problem may be occurring.

Thanks!

That's great news, thanks! I was worried there, because I don't have a 64-bit version of Windows handy to test on. But if that one function were causing problems, than Echo should not work at all, since it does much more extensive work with clipboard than just clearing it smiley

 and also after restarting or logging back in   echo screen pops up for    a second  sometimes in the last position it was in before logging off  sometimes like its heading toward the taskbar  that with your portable version and also the installed version

@hangdawg, the icon is automagically hidden on Windows Vista and 7 depending on it's use (click) and 'icon' changes, unless you change that setting yourself. As it's a user-driven feature, that's not normally controlled by an application.

That's probably something with your Windows setup, I suspect. undecided

I've set it to always show all icons (so I can't verify, but it does get a bit crowded at times, even though I've set the taskbar to double-height).

Great app - it's filled a long-standing need I have for a clipboard extender that doesn't screw up my development environment. I'm running it under Win7, both 32- & 64-bit. I think I've found a problem under 64-bit: the "Short" tab doesn't display any clips, no matter how short. As an experiment, I changed the filter to use "nrGreaterThanOrEqual" instead of "nrLessThanOrEqual", and then all clips were shown, even the very short ones! I haven't used it a lot under 64-bit, so there may be other funnies I haven't come across

I would like to second Tomos' request for an option to minimize to the tray when I hit the Close box - I know I can just click outside the window or hit the Minimize button, but I just can't get out of the habit of hitting Close when I've finished looking at the clips!

This shouldn't be a 32/64 bit issue, or else there would likely be trouble with all filters. Could you post a screenshot of the Filters tab of the view?

A few things to check:

- is the length filter the only one defined for the view? If it is not, what is the setting of the AND/OR option (match all filters or match any filter)? Filters can be combined, including filters of the same type, but if there was more than one length filter, results might be weird, depending on how the filters are configured.

- is the count value set properly? (just checking ;-)

- is the Reverse option set? (It should not be)

- If you use LessThan (or GreaterThan) instead of the "OrEqual" conditions, does that fix the problem?

I've just configured a new view from scratch, and it correctly shows clips of 10 or fewer characters. Yours should look similar to this:

Hey,

really great application - imho better then ditto Wink

(i am using v1.0.4b103 on win xp sp3)

bugs
  • when trying to add cf_dib or other formats to the store-in-echo-list, the application crashes when clicking the ok-button (Error [EEchoInternalError]: TClpFormatRegistry: Clipboard format "cf_dib" (type: System) already exists in the registry)
  • there is no confirmation dialog on deleting items here

feature requests
  • close to tray on pressing the X
  • possibility to configure the directory for saving the database
  • possibility to configure the directory for saving the application-settings (ini)
  • possibility to change shortcuts like F2
  • do not autopaste items on pressing enter - only copy them to the clipboard (like ctrl+shift+c)
  • always show date and time for last saved items instead of e.g. "8 minutes ago"
  • do not block capturing when editing an item internally or externally. sometimes it is useful to capture a part of an existing clip and save it to a new clip

that's it for now
it would be nice if you keep these issues in mind smiley

thanks in advance!
