Reset to defaults
« on: August 20, 2013, 08:44:31 AM »
I forgot the default hotkeys and am not sure how to reset them.

Changed capture/view/spell to ctrl+c and paste last clip as plaintext to ctrl+v

Now, after each capture, CHS crashes.
Relaunched it half a dozen times, each time, same error.

I don't think there is a "Reset to Defaults," but it might be a good idea if there were.  Mouser?

Otherwise, though, where did all the "Geen" entries come from?  My non-active keys all say "None."  You get that by putting the cursor in the box and pressing Backspace.  Or is "Geen" just another language?

Sorry, Geen = other language for 'None'.

Have been playing with the hotkeys for a short while.
-capture/view/spell: none 
-paste last clip as plaintext = ctrl-v
result: ctrl-c does not copy anything.

-capture/view/spell: none 
-plaste last clip as plaintext = none
result: ctrl-c/ctrl-v works fine

for the time being will leave both hotkeys : none.

I thought there might be an ini file that could be deleted - but if so, I couldnt find it. Mouser ? :)

@tomos:
I have an INI file, but, I'm running CHS as portable, and as you'd expect it's in the same directory as the .EXE.  Are you getting caught out by the Virtual Store or something?

@dcwul62:
Might you have a hotkey conflict with another program?  Have you tried disabling everything, then putting keys back one by one?  Are you using the latest version of CHS?  Mine says it's v2.19.01.  For what little it's worth, a screenshot of my minimal hotkey list is attached.

hi rj, in the installed version, there's only a "ConfigDir.ini" file in install folder.
I had a look under users but couldnt find anything relevant - but when just having a look, user folders are always a bit of a lottery (/nightmare) I find - too many options/directories.

I have:
c:\NoInst\ClipboardHelpAndSpell\
ClipboardHelpAndSpell.ini
ClipboardHelpAndSpell_UserTools.ini
ConfigDir.ini
ConfigDir_Default.ini
ConfigDir_Sample.ini


user folders are always a bit of a lottery (/nightmare) I find - too many options/directories.
Too right  :(  How about using Everything or another file finder?

^well I rarely search, but when I need to, I use XYplorer - so I tried that - did a search for "ClipboardHelpAndSpell.ini" on C:
I didnt find it but got this odd message:

Screenshot - 2013-08-22 , 00_11_11.pngReset to defaults

but not feeling dedicated enough to follow up on the mysterious "41 items are hidden" ... :-\ :)


edit/ - configdir.ini is the only ini file in the install folder.

On windows vista/7/8, for installed version, the ClipboardHelpAndSpell.ini file, as well as database files, should be in your documents folder in a subdirectory ApplicationData\DontionCoder\ClipboardHelpAndSpell, or something to that effect.

Exit CHS, delete those files, and restart and you'll have reset all settings.
