Clip preview size on pop-up
« on: October 08, 2012, 07:25:54 AM »
Hi,

I can't seem to find a way of increasing the size of the 'hover' clip preview on the pop-up. I'm copying chunks of text with, perhaps, small differences between them. I make heavy use of the pop-up as it's very convenient on a large screen, but I can't see enough of each clip in it's (truncated) preview to choose correctly. Can I change this setting somewhere?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Next version will have an improvement and option for this, where you can change the maximum excerpt size to 255 (see Tweak tab of options), and hint on clip hover will now show full excerpt size with newlines preserved.

The new beta is up if you want to try it.

Hmmm...doesn't seem to be working at all. I can't get a full size excerpt and the 'excerpt size' setting doesn't seem to do anything.

Change the excerpt size to 255 on the Tweak page, and then capture NEW clips.  It won't affect old ones.

Yep. Sorry to mess you about - I got that and replied in the 'beta' thread but I never get a full size excerpt / new lines are not preserved.

We're talking about on the Quick Paste popup menu right? (Ctrl+Alt+Q hotkey by default).
