There were some issues on exporting clips.

Where is the original thread? My memory is that export worked and the problem was with the importing tool..

thing was that I would like to export each text clip to a single .txt file
adding subject title-date-time of the clip, so these can be indexed by desktop indexing tools,
or combined to bigger .txt files based on subject, etc.

I went to add it but then had second thoughts.. I'm wondering if a better solution might be a standalone tool that would parse a CSV file and create separate text files from it.. Would be a more general solution that could solve your needs but be more configurable and general pupose..

Since it is being mentioned, I could actually use a tool like that and one that does opposite too.

as said, for me, ideal would be that
1. each clipboard-item is saved as a plain .txt file
2. stripping images, formatting
3. with clipboard-item header as filename
4. adding date -and- time to the name so to avoid clashing because of identical name.

or maybe...maybe as an extra option save the items as .rtf files keeping the formatting
(others might wish to have that?)

That's upto you.

personally I donot need a .csv file

I'm still thinking the best solution to this is to have CHS export in a standard csv (or add xml) format, and use a separate program to convert from csv to the standalone file solution that you want.

@mouser Any progress on this?
Exporting to separate files.

Note that exporting to .csv is not successful either, at least, with me.
I guess .csv is meant to be imported in Excel? With me all data is listed disorganized, there is nothing I can do with it.
Have you given it a try yourself?

Sorry to keep on nagging about this old request and most likely I am the only one :)

TEMPLATES to Export ' single .txt files (adding date-time)
« Reply #11 on: May 13, 2015, 07:25:35 AM »
Feature Summary   Request Date   Status
Templates to export one or each/all of variously selected clips to one, set (char/line/data length?) size or each to it's own file of specified filetype   2015-05-13 11:52:01 UTC   possibly new, not yet checked for redundancy on forum
This is from the perspective mostly of immediately how I wanted to use it,  primarily to help rapidly organize while keeping the database uncluttered with things I  do not prefer being in it, but also - for example to quickly notate a directory in windows explorer in a way I am pretty comfortable with relying on throughout quite an open forward looking expanse of potential changes whilst I maintain the digital information throughwixt.  :)


This is also a feature I would use to help address what another feature also applies to, which feature I have previously sought to describe: a modular style of clipsets which can be loaded and unloaded without disrupting the tree structure etc. necessarily, not displacing one another necessarily.


I hope to get situated -as practical- to address these needs directly - as I have some idea and great interest in working around or into brilliant simplicity and elegance the potential complexities there may be in the robust implementing of what I am suggesting and imagining.

Thanks again Mouser and all involved- the tool is brilliant, fitting in like a gem —of compatible enough, versatile enough, generally just enough and especially: creatively characteristic of its precious origin and authorship, nuanced enough; —between autohotkey  etc. and just not bothering- opening up the making feasible a vast realm of application dynamism which otherwise is the wide field of another after yet another disappointing instance where other software developments lack the sort of control interface I am inclined to prefer!  CHS is basically the glove  smoothing out the inconsistencies of many other applications.  BRAVO!
