Clipboard Help+Spell / CHS on Linux
« on: June 24, 2015, 09:24 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with CHS on Linux? I've been working on a VM of Mint 17.1 (mate), in WMWare Player on Win7, all 32 bit. I copied the my documents \ chs folder over to Mint. CHS seems to have picked up the database fine, but not all the settings, which is weird (missing some hotkeys; the Presets are there).

The immediate problem I'm having is in making Ctrl-Alt- hotkeys work. But I'm wondering if the constraints of operating in a VM window have anything to do with that. I've exited CHS in Windows during the testing.


Clipboard Help+Spell / [Request] Line-wrap in editor
« on: June 18, 2015, 06:02 AM »
I just went to a permanent clip I have to see if it needed changes, and found that there doesn't seem to be any way, or at least a quick way, to wrap the lines of the clip to the editor's window so I can see all the text. The text is wrapped in the Modify/Format Case popup, but no editing is possible there. Wouldn't a line wrap toggle on the toolbar be a good idea?


Clipboard Help+Spell / How to use spellcheck
« on: May 30, 2015, 04:06 PM »
I just want to make sure I'm not missing something. The way I see it, CHS's spellchecker is used by copying a selection to clipboard, then running spellcheck on it within the CHS window. There is no way to use CHS to spellcheck text while it's within the target application, specifycally on the fly there.

I ask because I'm considering the need for a system spellchecker.


Clipboard Help+Spell / Password problem
« on: April 08, 2015, 08:50 PM »
This is not earth-shaking, but I thought I'd share it.

I use hotkeyz to open programs and do other things. One task I use it for is to paste a few passwords into various progs. The problem is that the PWs are picked up by CHS and stored. My machine is pretty secure, but in principle this is not ideal.

The ideal solution for me would be, I think, if CHS had hotkeys for specific stored clips, and also the ability to exclude these clips from the history. That creates the problem of where to store them. I guess that would necessitate a PW-protected area of the prog.

Not sure that is practical, but I thought I'd share it.


Find And Run Robot / Installation switches?
« on: November 02, 2014, 03:41 PM »
I just began using FARR, and think it's awesome. I intend on deploying it on the laptops I refurb, and am interested in finding any installation switches there might be to make the install as automatic as possible. After the install I copy the .ini file over via batch file.


Clipboard Help+Spell / Add short excerpt to clip Title in main window
« on: October 22, 2014, 02:00 PM »
Currently I have a clip's date and source application listed in the Title column of the main window. Both are helpful, but is there a way to get a short excerpt of the clip itself there, similar to the quick paste popup? I've added %shortexcerpt% to clipboard/clip naming option, and restarted the prog, to no avail.


Clipboard Help+Spell / Does CHS handle Rich Text?
« on: January 15, 2014, 08:24 PM »
I'm confused about rich text. There is a limit setting for it in options. I changed that from 0 to 10000. But I'm still not getting any rich text capture. Am I missing something or does CHS not handle rich text? Thanks.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Phantom CHS taskbar icon
« on: August 01, 2013, 11:02 AM »
A couple of times a day I'm getting a CHS taskbar icon in Win7 32 bit. Right-clicking it only shows "Close". I just click on the icon and it closes itself. But I can't see what is causing this. I don't seem to have any settings that would be relevant. It seems to happen at random times.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Starting CHS via batch file quandary
« on: January 10, 2013, 07:14 AM »

I'm trying to call CHS along with some other programs via a batch file that will delay their opening upon boot up. The problem I'm having is that if I just place the file path to CHS on a line, it opens fine, but the batch processing goes into wait mode and nothing else gets done. But if I use a Start command, a second CMD windows spawns but CHS does not execute. I'm not clear on why the Start command does not successfully execute CHS.


Clipboard Help+Spell / Interaction with the keyboard layout hook?
« on: August 11, 2012, 07:06 AM »

I'm just wondering if CHS has any interaction with the Windows keyboard hook, because a problem has developed here.

I'm on Win7 Ultimate /32bit (upgraded from Vista Business). On this machine I have the keyboard set to the Dvorak layout. I even removed the more common QWERTY layout from the system, to prevent accidentally switching back to it.

In the Opera 12.50 browser I was composing a forum post in a multiline vBulletin text box, and I used CHS to append some BBC formatting to some selected text via a custom Formatting Preset. As soon as I did so, the system blinked noticeably, and immediately the text box began responding to the QWERTY layout scheme rather than Dvorak.

I opened metapad, and there Dvorak was recognized, so I assumed the problem was Opera's. The Opera 12 series has been very buggy, so this made sense. I cycled Opera, and the problem disappeared.

That seemed to be that, until once again the system reverted to QWERTY last evening. This time, there was no Formatting Preset event, and now the reversion seemed to be systemic, affecting global hotkeys I have set up with the program Hotkeyz (on reflection, I don't really know if the problem was systemic, or affecting only Hotkeyz).

But I haven't had this problem in a very long time, and now I've got it again. The only other program I installed lately is SoftMaker Office. I don't use it much, and I don't see anything resident from it.

So that initial blink at the CHS Format Preset application has me wondering if is it possible that CHS is somehow affecting the keyboard hook.

Thanks for any input.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Newbie's observations, suggestions
« on: August 08, 2012, 11:58 AM »
Hi mouser and community,

I wanted to commend and thank you for CHS. Truly an awesome, high-quality program. Just what I was looking for since CLCL proved unworkable under Win7.

I have a few small problems, and then a few suggestions. The problems:

  • I initially got crashes, until I nulled out the "capture" hotkey. Not sure what that setting does.
  • Is there any benefit to "periodically reestablish clipboard"? Using it, my Bible program periodically would pickup spurious copy events and spawn its own corresponding popup window. Kill spurious events is enabled.
  • I'm getting extra Copy sound notifications after a copy. They don’t seem to do anything but are annoying.

And the suggestions:
  • Multi-column popup menu. This would be a great improvement from my perspective, rather than scrolling.
  • Any way to order peer subfolders in the tree?
  • Initial Setup option to place backup folder in appdata hierarchy (Vista or greater), to make user files backup easier (I know this can be done afterward).
  • Browse button for image editor option. Small deal, but I noticed it.

Also, I'm not clear if my registration will apply to more than one machine.

Thanks again. Brilliant program, obviously with a lot of care invested.
