Suggestions for Clipboard Help + Spell
« on: September 09, 2007, 08:48:24 AM »
- ability to organize images with an image preview in the contextmenu

- support for RTF text (with option to convert RTF text to plain text)

- preference window just should have one tab row for easier reading
Find+Run Robot 2.90.01

i really do agree with this and i *will* be adding this (will be optional so those who use chs for plaintext only wont be affected)

i agree as well -- again optional.  the database is already set up for this so it's not that much work.

--

the real reason these things aren't implemented is that, in truth, i have no use for these features, and my experience after using a clipboard tool with image and rtf support, is that i really don't use these features.

there is no doubt that having images and rtf on the clipboard itself is needed -- but i just never found myself needing to store such clips for longer periods of time which is of course what clipboard tools like chs are for.  though i don't doubt that some people have need for these so i will be adding rtf support for sure.  but my focus has been on plaintext features just because i think thats 95% of the use.

Could features like these, i.e. storing clips in various formats, be implemented through plugins? Now that you have a good plugin system in FARR, I suppose you could add this to some of your other apps too :tellme:

it's a very good idea -- i wrote the plugin system to be very general and easy to add to different programs.
however i think RTF and image data are best implemented as part of core system and i do plan to do so.

You'll hear no complaints from me about that ;)
