Suggestion: Add [Copy] to 'Merged Clips' window panel
« on: August 31, 2013, 04:09:44 AM »

Suggestion..  IF(!) at all possible and nót too complicated . . .

Right now, when merging clips, the steps are as follows:
1. select two or more clips
2. click on the 'merge' button
3. click 'OK'
4. Click on 'Copy clip to clipboard' (CHS automatically selects the merged clip)


When adding a [Copy]  button:
1. select two or more clips
2. click on the 'merge' button
3. click on [Copy] button

Now, there are to options:

4.a. Click on 'OK' (the merged clip is saved), or
4.b. Click on 'Cancel'  - the merged clip is nót saved

Comments on 4.b. - if the merged clip is just meant for a, let's say, 'one-off pasting' into whatever other application, then the merged clip is not needed anymore for future use.
Thus it does not make so much sense to store it in the database: lateron it has to be deleted, which I admit, is indeed a piece of cake, but nonetheless often forgotten.

The normal procedure (4.a) remains in place of course.

It's just an idea...

Seems like a good idea to me, and well argued. I will add it.

Yes, it is a bit quiet, but I am sure a new version will be released soon...??

This has actually been in the beta for a month, I just never updated the change list.
So re-download the latest beta and you should see it:

hi mouser, maybe what traciwil meant is whether the clipboard suggestion has been implemented (??)
which is not yet the case as the idea was dated aug.31 and the latest version is aug.29, 2013, so it can't yet be in the CHS  :)
sure, it will be included not long from now.
keep up the good work!

ps: pls note that ClipMate will not be developed any further. Due to spam, the forum has already been closed for quite a while.
At the time it was still up and running and whilst users were puzzling about the future of ClipMate, I recommended to check out CHS.
Though ClipMate is still okay and running fine right now (why shouldn't it?), likely people might gradually move over to some other tool
bearing in mind that CM will 'end'.  Hopefully they will pick CHS as it roughly has the same layout ('explorer'-view)

don't underestimate my time traveling abilities..
The copy to clipboard button has been added to the Merge dialog.

Is that in the pop-up window? With me in 2.20.01 it reads [Cancel]-[OK].
Or should I look elsewhere?
