A New ArsClip for the New Year

ArsClip v3.2.0 has officially been released. The goal of this version was to go back to older sections of the program and clean up clutter and fix old problems. This did, however, require adding new functionality and features to alleviate some of these issues.

The Configuration window has received quite a bit of work. I've added settings that were previously only found on the Popup window and re-categorized/re-organized the options. Options should be easier to find and the more important options should appear first in the list for each page.

The default view of the popup has been simplified for new installs. This makes learning the program much easier by having much less clutter and implicitly adds value to the 'Full Mode' menu command.

External Editor support adds a convenient way to edit clips directly in the programs associated with text files and bitmaps. This automates almost all of the steps required to edit clips in your favorite editor.

Lastly, I've replaced the the Shift+Select and Ctrl+Select keystroke commands with user definable actions. This adds a quick way to execute any command normally found on the right-click menu.

The new menus aren't the only improvements, and Joe is working on it at a rapid pace.  Look at the list of changes in the beta section...

Agreed.  The new popup seems much more responsive than the previous one.

They might not be the only changes, but the most obvious.  :)

I think that's a large part of why I like ArsClip is that the basic features are so obvious and easy to use.  On the other hand, it sometimes feels like it's hiding its light under a bushel by making the more advanced features slightly too hidden.
