There is a strange conflict or bug between your clipboard manager CHS (Clipboard Help+Spell) and TiniSpell+ (spelling utility, home page address ) at my Windows 7 x64 (English) system.

When the both CHS and TiniSpell+ are running, pasting a clip from Favorites clip or Recent clips list with a keyboard becomes a headache, because in many different target applications CHS pastes a letter "v" instead or adds this letter after the pasted clip(without a space) from a CHS list (I was not able to detect any clear algorithm between these two scenarios).

Say, in Windows 7 stock Notepad (also in other plain text editors AkelPad and Mark Editor) CHS pastes whether ONLY the single letter "v" or the required clip PLUS the letter "V".

MS Office Word 2013 x32:
a clip from Favorite clips list - OK
a clip from Recent clips list - pastes only letter "v"

Stickies ( - all is OK, no problems.

And so on, I've tried many different target apps, there no matter to list here every of them.

If I unload or disable TiniSpell+, the issue disappears. However when I tried to use TiniSpell+ with some other clipboard managers, say, Ditto, MyClip, Spartan MultiClipboard etc, there were no any troubles. Thus we need to conclude, that something is a bit wrong with CHS, say, it uses some very special hook to paste its clips in a target app.

The most interesting thing, that if I use a mouse to select a clip from the list (favorites or this recent clips etc), this problem does not appear. (However it is senseless for me, as I am a keyboard lover guy).


It seems, that there is a bug in CHS. If you have some ordered favorite clips and paste any of them several times (two or more) in a short time interval, this clip automatically goes the most top place in the Quick Paste Pop-up Menu and gets sticked there firmly, so new items just copied to clipboard get lower places (thus higher order numbers) than this sticked favorite clip. If you do than the same with another favorite clip, it goes up as well and take the place nr 1 before the previous - and so on, so you'll get at last the whole crowd of favorites in the beginning of the Quick Paste Pop-up Menu. It repeats every time with every favorite clips.

After tens of attempts and tests the only way I could invent to remove this favorite (or these favorites) from the Quick Paste Pop-up Menu is to delete them and their duplicates totally from any folder from CHS database.

At first I thought this to b a feature, but now I suspect, that it is a bug, because I could not any reasonable way neither to control this behavior nor to remove these clips from to top positions of the list. Have I missed anything?


What font (fontface and size) is used hear at this forum? It looks very pretty for, so I'd consider to use it in some my documents.

I've tried to use Clipboard Help+Spell under English Windows 7 x64 in order to copy and paste some Cyrillic text. The behavior is quite interesting: CHS shows Cyrillic symbols correctly in the clips list and in the main window (clips manager) too. But when I paste the clip from the list into the target application's window, it puts Cyrillic symbols in some totally distorted form (a bit similar to some Eastern Asia hieroglyphs). It is well known issue, which usually points, that something is wrong with the encodings.

I've tried to paste in many different application, with or without Unicode support, plain text, HTML, RTF formats (from Notepad to LibreOffice Writer) - the result was always the same (see the screenshot).

Have you any idea, how to fix the problem?

Hi to all!

Is there any option to re-order (manually) the clips in the favorites list?

It seems, that it must exist, but I was not able to find any way to do it. Imagine, I have the only clip in the favorites list, so I used to paste some favorite ABC clip by pressing the sequence Alt+C -> Q -> 1. Than I add another one... and it gets the number 1! Thus when I press Alt+C -> Q -> 1, I get pasted this new clip, so if I need to paste my older one, I need to get used to use Alt+C -> Q -> 2.
Well, I am able to learn this new combination too, But than I add another one... Well, you see, what I mean...

And I have not found a single word for this subject in the manual and at this forum as well. :o
