yes i will; now that image support is added, proper unicode and richtext seem to be the next logical steps.-Mouser
New version released January 27: 220.127.116.11Thanks a lot, Marek!
ADDED: Echo can now store its database and configuration files in any user-specified folder. This works the same way for both the desktop and portable editions. Custom folder can be specified on the command line or in the master.config file. This is useful for example if you want Echo to keep its data and configuration in a folder that you can easily include in your backup.-tranglos (January 26, 2012, 08:19 PM)
Hooray - thanks in advancepossibility to configure the directory for saving the database

Done, the next release will have it. The custom folder can be specified in the master.config file or on command-line; the Help file will have all the details.-tranglos (January 22, 2012, 05:07 PM)
New version released January 20: 18.104.22.168-tranglos (January 19, 2012, 09:14 PM)
ADDED (by popular request): Option to minimize Echo when the Close button on the title bar is clicked. This option is disabled by default. To enable it, click Tools -> Preferences -> Display -> MinimizeOnCloseButton and set the option to True. When enabled, you must use the File -> Exit command (or press Alt+F4) to really quit Echo.Thanks a lot!-tranglos (January 19, 2012, 09:14 PM)
...Echo is not a very good note-takerI do not need one - I need Echo as it is (with some small improvements)-tranglos (January 19, 2012, 09:01 AM)
And though I hate to admit it, I'm starting to feel a need for some additional metadata on clips. Not necessarily categories or tags, and not a tree hierarchy at all - just some way of "naming" or describing clips to find them easier. For example, every month I pay my bills online and need to find and paste a bunch of bank account numbers. But I can't find them by their digits So it would help to name a clip "electricity bill account", "tax account" etc.Clipmate has such a feature-tranglos (January 19, 2012, 07:53 AM)
That's a possibility, although you cannot scroll a tooltip and it requires the mouse. Also, a tooltip would only show the "display text" part of a clip, which for larger clips may not be the complete text (depending on your settings).You'll make the right decision (the need of using a mouse is )
I've been thinking about a read-only side panel that can be hidden if not used. Maybe even with an optional binary / hex view so that you can inspect all formats of a clip besides just the plain text.-tranglos (January 19, 2012, 07:53 AM)
Found and fixed. I'll upload a new release by the end of the week, but for now you can just replace your ethervaneecho.exe with the one attached to this message.Great support - thanks a lot!
I use some automatic mechanisms for my backups. Therefore I store all my application-configurartions in special folders.possibility to configure the directory for saving the databaseCould you explain why this would be useful? It'd help me design the best way to implement this. Echo already uses a fairly involved logic to figure out where to store the database and config (are we portable? Are we running from a removable drive? Is the removable drive read-only? etc.), and I have to be careful making any changes to these parts of the code.

Would it be sufficient if I added a command-line argument to specify the config and database directories? You could add it to the shortcut used to start Echo.Yeah, that would be really nice
I don't think it would be practicable to use more than one shortcut for one function. Let's leave it as thatpossibility to change shortcuts like F2What would you use instead? I can easily add more than one shortcut for some functions. A complete keyboard customization would take more time. And there would be certain limitations, e.g. you cannot assign certain keys which are used when editing clips in-place or are necessary to navigate the tree, etc. It could be more trouble than it's worth.
I do not need that (I like what Ditto does). From my point of view you may disable it entirely But I think i'll be better to make it customizable.do not autopaste items on pressing enter - only copy them to the clipboard (like ctrl+shift+c)Disable pasting entirely, or just swap the function of (Shift+)Enter and (Shift+)Ctrl+C?
Oops - I have overseen that - sorry.always show date and time for last saved items instead of e.g. "8 minutes ago"Preferences -> Display -> Friendly dates -> set to False
If it's a secondary storage location them you're at the Admin's mercy as to what can be done with it.It is-Stoic Joker (June 20, 2011, 02:44 PM)
