Clipboard Help+Spell / Re: clipboard enhancements
« on: January 24, 2006, 11:39 AM »
Nope, saw that stuff.  Let's say I copy this text with the CHS shortcut, launching CHS.  I do my spellchecking and I want to send it back to the application.  There are buttons there for sending to clipboard and sendign to active window -- I was wondering how to access those functions sans mouse.

AceText uses one file per collection, you can have as many or as few collections open at a time as you wish--so if you have a lot of big ones, don't keep them all open.  Makes for a lot fewer files to process, at any rate, which would be a lot quicker than individual files if it's being run from a portable drive.  CHS is the only clipboard thing-a-mo-bob that can run effectively off a thumb drive, the rest love the registry. . . you could tout that point ;)

Databases are definitely faster for large collections . . . one nice thing about not using a database, though, would be images -- when CHS supports them, being able to just grab them out of a folder rather than going through the loops to export them would be pretty handy.  Especially for snapping a screenshot with the intent to upload it.

Glad to see this thread -- CHS as an acronym isn't bad, though it says nothing about what it does. Clipboard Help & Spell on the other hand is a bit too straight forward and uninspired ;)

From this thread, I liked "Jack of all Clipboards", ClipSuit and ClipSweet.

"Yet Another ClipBoard Extender" (YACE) -- heh, if you have a southern drawl, it's a bit like yes. "Yace, yace, more . . . clips" ;)

ClipFever
SnippetSnatcher (Ungh)
Mary Poppin's Bag (Terrible, yes, I know . . . but CHS is bottomless after all )
ClipRight (Surprisingly, this doesn't seem to be in use . . .)

"The Marsupial" -- Animal names have always been popular-- "The Bat", "Firefox", "Panther".  Marsupial, perhaps too subtly, hints at that storage pouch that goes everywhere you do (if you're a marsupial, anyway)

now press the icon that looks like a clipboard with an arrow leaving it to the right, that will copy the spellchecked text back over your original text.

There wouldn't be a keyboard shortcut for the buttons for sending to clipboard/send to active window would there?

Yeah, let someone else do the ground work--piggy back off  their knowledge, add your own unique touch and let the users decide what does the job best for them.  ClipMate is unarguably an amazing program -- only reason I even look at other things is the size and importability of CM.  It goes so far beyond the call of duty for a clipboard extender, it would probably be better referred to as a data management solution with Clip Board monitoring support ;)

AceText (by JG Soft, same guy who makes EditPad/EditPad Pro) is a newer player in the clipboard extender game.  One thing I really like about it is that its data is stored in text files rather than databases.  I like this for portability--unfortunately AceText still requires the registry for its settings and registration info.  There goes portability.  I do like file-based storage because I tend to, when I can, open files and manually work in them when I need to do batch operations with regex, etc.

I haven't tried running CHS from a portable drive--would it work?  I peaked in the folder and it appears that most everything is stored within the program directory including the settings.  So in theory, it should be a fully portable clipboard extender, right?

Little bug of course--CHS doesn't check to see if it's already running when it launches.  So launching another instance results in a bunch of database error feedback and necessitates ctrl+alt+delete to kill the second instance.
