Quick Paste Confusion
« on: January 12, 2013, 12:40:39 PM »
I think I'm getting old - or something has changed.

I already have a list of Favorites (none of which appear in the 'Quick Paste' group) which is fine. On the pop-up, I have my Favorites listed and any new clips above that. I've just added a new clip to Favorites which worked fine but it stubbornly stays in the Quick Paste group as well - which I don't want! I now have the same clip duplicated, and if I delete from Quick Paste it also deletes from Favorites. Can I achieve what I want? I did at some point, but can't remember how...

This is a good question, though a bit tricky and advanced.

The "Quick Paste" group is a "virtual" group, which is created dynamically based on the date of clips.  So it will always show recent clips, even if those clips are in other groups.'

You can't physically remove clips from the "Quick Paste" groups, and if you delete a post shown in "Quick Paste" group it will be deleted from its real/home group.

However, what you can do is CHANGE the rules for the Quick Paste group to tell it to never show clips that are in your Favorites.

Here's how you do that:
  • Show the main window of CHS.
  • Right click on the "Quick Paste" group and select "Edit this Group"
  • In rules, add this to the end:  AND (IsFavorite=false)


Your final "Quick Paste" group should look like:

Now you should find that favorites are never listed in the Quick Paste group/popup.

Perfect - thanks! I tried to do something similar but got the syntax wrong.

While I've got your attention  :) ... any news on the next version?
