Ah I understand now!
You are repeatedly pressing the HOTKEY to show the quick paste menu.. I thought you were bringing up the tray icon menu.

Ok I can reproduce this now.  I will fix -- though it's not really a problem per se, it is disconcerting.

OK, thank you! :)

Does it happen with right-click too or just left-click?  Does it happen with any other programs?

Do the old menus that are shown actually "work" -- that is, can you click items on them? Or are they just graphics artifacts left on screen?

I don't click any mouse button. I press the hotkey for the menu, move the mouse and press the hotkey again, move the mouse again and so on.

This bug occurs in Notepad++, Notepad, WordPad, Word, Firefox,... seems to occur in every program.

The old menus are not clickable, but strangely they react to the hotkey for showing/hiding the menu.

Some more details: CHS v2.17.1.0 (portable)

Maybe it has something to do with the video card?
I attached a video clip showing this behavior.

Is it possible to let CHS behave like a clipboard stack by default? I would like pasted items to be removed automatically without setting a stack marker and using a separate hotkey for stack pop.

I experience a bug displaying the menu (Windows 7 Pro x64, SP1): Show the menu, move the mouse and then show the menu again. The menu at the old location will remain.

Here is a screenshot:

Hello anatabai!

About 1)
Making sessions would involve storing the file path of the executable that owns the windows, and i don't think there's a way to access that information. (it's possible to know the name of the executable, but not its full path, afaik).
Saving a window layout to be applied when those same windows are open would be feasable and would make sense, though.

I thought only about explorer windows. After browsing a little bit on this forum I found a post about Microsoft's GroupBar. It has so called snapshots which is what I wanted as "sessions". It can remember the paths. But I think, it is not ripe yet. It has only a rigid (max.) 3x2 grid :(

About 2)
This really is a program completely different from gridmove. Someone recently made a similar request, and i answered that there's a program that does exactly that, but unfortunatelly i still can't remember its name :(
It would be great if you could recall it :)

i am now finishing my university course
Good luck!  :Thmbsup:

Hi JGPaive,

thank you for GridMove!

I have two requests/suggestions:

1. sessions:
Position your windows and save the current arrangement. Later, e.g. after a reboot, restore the arrangement so all earlier opened windows will be opened again (just like sessions in internet browsers).

2. variable arrangement:
Instead of a rigid grid one have a completely flexible workspace. At start the first window grabs all desktop space. The 2nd window can be placed/inserted above, under, to the left or right of the first window. The 3rd window can then be placed/inserted similarly relative to the 1st or second window:
If it is placed above or under the 2nd window, the space occupied by the 2nd window is split into two equal halves, where the two windows (2nd and 3rd) are placed.
And so on with a lot of windows.
Perhaps one inconvenience is that one must handle all the positioning with the mouse, but it is the price for variability.
Some applications - like eclipse - have this feature to rearrange their GUI elements.
