copy and combine multiple text
« on: January 25, 2012, 03:29:48 PM »
hello!

I want to use a special key and copy multiple texts (one by one) and then use another key to paste all that text combined (each text, seperated in a newline)

any suggestion?

thanks!

Are these snippets simple plain-text?  As in, they're not copied from Word or Excel docs, right?

If they're just simple plain-text snippets, you could use something like this:

Code: Autohotkey
  1. ^g:: ; Ctrl+G to copy.
  2. {
  3.     SendInput, ^c ; Copy selected text to clipboard.
  4.     myBlock .= Clipboard . "`n" ; Concatenate block of saved text.
  5. }
  6. Return
  7.  
  8. ^h:: ; Ctrl+H to paste.
  9. {
  10.     Clipboard := myBlock ; Put saved block of text on clipboard.
  11.     SendInput, ^v ; Paste into application.
  12.     myBlock := "" ; Clear block of text.
  13. }
  14. Return
  15.

Umm, I think can do all that - and more - in mouser's Clipboard Help and Spell. It's called "merge clips" - and they don't have to be sequential either.
And no restrictions on whether you are copying from plain-text, Word, Excel or any other docs.

I just tried that

the problem is that the program does not offer a display of all clips stored with the timestamp on which, each clip was created and the application from which, each clip was created, so that I can easily choose which to merge (basically, there is no column that displays the clip content)

Ah, I think I understand. In this instance, a picture is probably worth a thousand words...

Pues me he enganchado a Cliptrap aunque utilizo Ditto.
Gracias skwire. Aunque lo hiciste combinando con ArsClip, también es útil combinado con Ditto
