Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: Some thoughts on the next version

You guys are awesome. Thank you for taking the time to help, I hope in some ways I am able to assist others like you have done.

I guess that really only leaves one issue that causes me trouble, the shifting when I cntrl+C

It does not happen in all groups, seems to occur in groups with a lot of clips.

Ok, tried Emptying the Recycle bin, it's still empty

Deleted selected clip,

clip not deleted from the group, and not in the bin

ok, exited the regular version, installed portable version. Clean database. Made a clip in Clipboard, and yes, it deleted it. Gone.

Made a new group, added three clips, and no, cannot delete every time.  :(    I can right click the group and Delete All clips in this group, and they go....

Again, like Ian said, this is not a priority A for me, because I simply re-use clips instead of deleting them that's ok. If you cannot replicate the issue, don't worry about it, I can love with it.

The Cntrl+C jumping is the Priority A issue for me. I unchecked the scroll bar setting, but I still see the interface jump to a different clip when I ctrl+C in a clip....

Edit: I am testing regular version again for Ctrl+C, getting different outcomes depending on which Groups I use.

In some Groups, I select a clip and copy a portion of the text in the clip, and it does not jump to another clip.

In other Groups, maybe they have more clips, I still see the jumping.... strange

I did right click the Recycle bin and emptied, and it did make them go away. Tried making a test clip in a normal group and deleted selected clip, still not deleting.

I will try that, with the portable version.

While I am installing the portable version and testing, let me add, the colors of child clips may be affected by my changes in Options/Custom Appearance/ Customize Main Fonts, I will play with that and see.

see my new note above about disabling that option about scrolling to bottom of clip group -- if you uncheck that does it solve the issue with Ctrl+C trying to jump to a new clip?

No sir, does not fix that for me. When I ctrl-C in a clip, it jumps to another clip.

I am using 2.32.

That scroll bar does keep the scroll bar at the top, though.  :up:

Edit: yes, I do see clips in the Recycle Folder, 527 rows. Cannot delete from there either...

I can add an option for that.

Actually this is already an option, uncheck this:

Oh, outstanding, I should have seen that.  :-[

This is by design -- and you'll notice the clips are colored differently based on whether they are in parent or child; the design idea was that clips should only be in leaf children, and that this would be a nice way of being able to filter/search/browse clips under a certain level of the hierarchy.  I can consider making this an option though.

I may be missing another setting, but where are clips differnet colors? All mine seem to be black text, white background.... I see under Options/Custom Appearance "Grid Child Row" but when I change that color, all clips, Parent and Child seem to take on the new color.

this surprises me -- can you tell me how you are trying to delete a clip and what happens?
can you experiment a bit and see if its really the case that you cant delete any clips or maybe it's just certain clips in certain circumstances?

Yeah, my work around for the last 2 years is, since I cannot delete a clip, to empty the contents and reuse it.  8)   But I have been puzzled why I cannot delete.
When I try to delete a clip, I click on the clip, part of it is highlighted, and I click on the icon with the red X, "delete selected clip(s)"

But nothing happens. I also try using Edit, Deleted Selected Clip.

Yes sir, I am usually working in a different group than New.

Edit: considering the issue I stated with sub groups, if that is a lot of work, I have a work around; that is, I don't use subgroups, I just add more Groups, and think of them as "subgroups".

Thanks for the input.  :Thmbsup:  Right now, CHS works very well as a PIM at the level I need it, except for the funky behaviors listed above. I would certainly make an additional donation for an upgrade, I believe in rewarding work.

I use CSH a lot. I keep a lot of code and html, signatures and often used verbiage, and info in clips. I use it store password hints, and account emails and urls. I go and copy parts of CSH clips and paste into webpages, and visa versa. There a are a few major issues I have with CSH:

When I select a clip,  and highlight then ctrl-c a piece of the clip to place into a webpage or form, the CSH interface instantly shifts to some other, unrelated clip. I am no longer in the selected clip, and I have to find it and re-orient myself. What I would like to see is, when I highlight and copy, the interface stays the same, nothing happens. I am still in the selected clip, and my highlighted text is still highlighted.

Same when I have copied a bit of code or text from outside of CSH, and I go and select a clip and I want to paste it into the CHS clip. I should see the pasted text, in the selected clip, with not shifting and changing of the interface.

When I select a portion of a clip, I would like to be able to right click and get the copy paste menu, as with all the other Windows programs.

Also, when I go to a Group, it should have the windows vertical scroll bar at the top. As it works now, when I change groups, the scroll bar is at the bottom, even though I have the clips ordered. CSH is the only window or program where the scroll bar starts at the bottom.

The sub Groups: the clips in the sub groups are also in the parent group. I don't see why, I want the clips separate. I have sub groups under parent groups because they are related, but I don't want all the sub groups clips also duplicated in the parent group.

And I still cannot delete a selected clip. Never have been able to.

This is a terrific program, and I support your work.  I hope you can find time to add these improvements into the next version.

« on: November 10, 2015, 11:08 PM »
Started up CHS this evening and it popped up a prompt about  "Free License (renewal has been required for 2 days)"

Does that mean my license is only good for a year?

You're very welcome sir!

Ok, you can disregard this problem, I followed the steps in this thread and it seems to have fixed the problem

thanks :-*

Hi, registered long time user of this great app. Recently, I began getting an error when I open CHS, see attached. Now the Memo section does not display the contents of the clip I click on. I tried restoring to a recent db, no joy. Suggestions? Thanks.

For some reason the CHS icon has an X on it now... any ideas?

Hi, sorry about the delay in responding.

I routinely make edits to saved clips, adding material and often editing existing clips. For example, I have a clip called "Member comments" where I add the occasional comment from members of the site that I can use at the end of the year in our Christmas message. So, when I see a new comment on the forum, I will copy it and paste it into the clip.

I will try to make notes and test the copy and paste characteristics, see if I can describe it better.

BTW, there appears to be a limit to how much data a clip can hold, is that a setting I can adjust?

Ok, several weeks since I migrated to CHS, I am really loving it. Some obervations/questions:

Is there an Undo button? I don't see one, nor does Undo appear in the Edit dropdown. I searched this forum, does Ctrl-Z work as an undo command? I have tried it and it appears to.

Any time I make an addition or change to a clip in the bottom pane, it does not require "saving" the clip, the change just goes in without any additional moves by me. Is that by design?

Last, when I am switching from an app such as vBulletin or Word, and CHS, it seems that CHS does not return in the place where I was working. For example: if I am C&Ping from part of a clip in the bottom pane, when I go to Word and paste it, then back to CHS, sometimes I am no longer in that part of the clip, or even the same clip.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hey, that's a great way to manage images, cool, thanks. :D

Is there a way to change the ID of a clip, so I can rearrange them?

Yes, I like the grid view with the thumbnails, but your system is great,   :Thmbsup:   I am getting used to the change.

It's what I call the layout, sort of resembles tabbed browsers.

Clipboard Help+Spell / Life after Cliptrakker
« on: November 07, 2013, 09:42 AM »
So, since 1999 or so I have relying on Cliptrakker, a shareware app that I gladly paid for. Since my Windows 7 laptop won't run it, and it is no longer supported  :( I have been looking for a replacement and arrived at Clipboard Help+Spell.  Two things that got my attention, a search function (which Cliptrakker did not have and was needed) and the really good video explaining how the features and how the app works.

So, far, so good. I miss the familiar tabbed icon format of Cliptrakker but other than that, Clipboard Help+Spell is working well for me.
