Quick Paste Menu improvements
« on: April 29, 2013, 05:21:22 AM »
Hi mouser

I have a few suggestions to improve the Quick Paste Menu dialog:


1.)
[X] Show length of clip

in the Quick Paste Menu after the clip, example:

1 - Clipboard Help+Spell is a text-based clipboard utility with the following features:(503)
2 - - Clipboard Help+Spell is a text-based clipboard utility with the following features:(85)
3 - · Super easy search function. (29)
4 - · Keep special list of favorite clips. (38)
5 - · High-quality spellcheck. (26)



2.)
ToolTip Size: [ 80]

because often I need to see which clip is longer or shorter to decide which to paste.

For example this two clips looks same in Quick Paste Menu, but I don't know which I should chose to paste:
1 - Clipboard Help+Spell is a text-based clipboard utility with the following features:(503)
2 - - Clipboard Help+Spell is a text-based clipboard utility with the following features:(85)


3.)
Give us more options for what to see in QuickPaste,
I mean can we get this options in Quick Paste Menu 2 dialog like :
[  ] Stack Operation
[X] All Clips
[  ] Show Options
[X] Show Main window
[  ] Cancel
[  ] Print


Thanks

#1 sounds great idea, i shall add it.
#2 i dont understand how that differs from request #1

#3 are you saying you just want to be able to hide some of the existing quick paste menu items?

Yes, #1 and #2 are both to better distinguish which item I rather want to paste.

Often I have that many same looking items I can't tell which one is the right.

So #1 will show me the length of the item so I can better guess which one will suit better.


#2 has the advantage to actually SEE what is going to paste in whole (well, more or less) by extending the amount of displaying tool tip  text.

IOW: the amount of text in the tool tip is not enough for my needs.

#3, yes, I want to disable some of the menu items which I don't need to "clean-up" the menu and get more room to show clips.


Thanks.

Regards the quick paste, the one thing I mess from "Ditto" is the ability to type a few characters at the bottom of the quick paste menu and filter out non-matching entries.  Same thing as you do in main window but do it in QP as well
