Custom Paste option to include special formatting
« on: July 13, 2015, 11:00:10 AM »
I often need to cut and paste text to create lists such a a list of names or folders etc.  After each paste, I always have to hit "return" twice,  or I end up with a bunch of run together lines. 

Is there a way to "pre-load" the paste option with two carriage returns such that any time i use (Copy/Paste) or (Cut/Paste) it would result in the item being pasted PLUS two carriage returns?   This would make each pasted item <end> and then be separated by a blank before the next one.  If not, is there a 3rd party solution that offers customizable copy/cut/paste options other than the one built into windows?

It might be best to create a special option such as "paste+" where the "+" would be paste plus (in this case) two carriage returns rather than changing the Windows default but it is a shame there is not a way to set the defaults built in to Windows anyway.  I can think of many cases where having a custom preset preference for paste would be handy.  Such as changing fonts or other similar for the items "copied or cut" so they end up being "pasted" already pre-configured to the task at hand.

When you say special options and "paste+" are you talking about using a specific clipboard utility?
