I just want to add a couple more features before posting an official new release :)
Great. Looking forward to it. Could you look at my post re: clip previews on the pop-up?

Clipboard Help+Spell / Clip preview size on pop-up
« on: October 08, 2012, 07:25 AM »
Hi,

I can't seem to find a way of increasing the size of the 'hover' clip preview on the pop-up. I'm copying chunks of text with, perhaps, small differences between them. I make heavy use of the pop-up as it's very convenient on a large screen, but I can't see enough of each clip in it's (truncated) preview to choose correctly. Can I change this setting somewhere?

Thanks,
Jeremy

...So if I simply added an additional key that captured the object under the red box and immediately let you stay in the red box mode to capture more objects, that would do what you want?
I vote 'yes' for this feature.

+1 That would convince me to use Screenshot Captor

And thank you for helping me solve a long standing bug!  :up:

New official version will be posted later this week for all.

With double click to paste from the main window and the pop-up working?  :) (See my other post this morning)

Duh...as per my other thread / post, I can see double click to paste is working in this version. Should have checked...sorry.

Ok, I'll look into it and report.

Excellent. Thank you very much.

Just wondered if you made any progress with this...?

Apologies - I can see double click to paste is working in last nights 'Alpha'... (should have checked that before posting!)

Yep, this is the same problem.

Now, the new version is likely to "fix" this problem for you that you may not want fixed.  Thankfully if that's the case just go to the Image Capture tab option and set CHS to "Force DPI" to 300.  That will get you back to old behavior.

Your new version works perfectly, and IMO as it should work. You've now provided default behaviour that 'mimicks' normal use of the Windows clipboard but allows maximum flexibility by choosing to manually resize the image to make it smaller if you wish (exactly what IainB is doing but 'in reverse' so to speak), and / or forcing a different size on the pasted image if this is the way you work on a particular project / job. Importantly, CH&S pastes an image in the same way that any other clipboard extender does. So I'm happy. Thanks.

This is what I get: With CH&S and then without it. Same object pasted into a blank e-mail.

Ok, will try there.
Here's something you could do for me.

Run this program "c:\windows\system32\clipbrd.exe" which should be installed on your pc by default; it reports on the format in the clipbard.  Well it doesnt really report on it but in the VIEW menu you can see info about what format the data is in.

What I'd like to know is what the View menu says when you are not using CHS to paste the image into the program, vs what it says when CHS is controlling the image.  When CHS is doing it, the View menu should just show two formats at the bottom (DIB, Bitmap).


I have no such file on this machine. Searched Drive C: for it. Win 7 Pro.

EDIT: Just found a post on sevenforums: clipbrd.exe doesn't exist on Win 7.

OK, I downloaded clipbrd.exe from a forum and tested capturing / pasting a screen clip to an Outlook e-mail, with and without CH&S. No difference at all on the View menu in Clipbook Viewer. It has 'DIB Bitmap' and 'Bitmap' at the bottom of the View menu for both scenarios.

Can you tell me some example programs where pasting it results in this small size.  You say email but you dont say what email client, etc.  I need to reproduce the problem before I can solve it.

Outlook, Word & PowerPoint 2010. All with the same result.

it has to be something related to how CHS puts bitmaps on the clipboard and not putting dpi information with it.. probably something very simple.

Something like that. The screen-shot programme I use has a specific option to preserve the original dpi which is ticked in it's settings. Undoubtedly that's happening when I paste without CH&S in the way, so the dpi information is being lost...

EDIT: Although when I drag the image out it looks OK in terms of resolution. Is that the same as the X / Y (image size) data? It's the physical size that seems to be wrong.

by unchecking PNG image optimization the image stays the same size.

you can find this option here:
View>Options>Image Capture> [ ] Save as PNG not BMP (same quality, much less disk space)




I'm afraid it doesn't. I've just tried that, even tried exiting and restarting CH&S. I still get a pasted image that's significantly smaller than the captured image, and if repeat the capture with CH&S closed, and then paste - no problem, the full size image clip is pasted.

I wonder about this as well -- it's come up before -- it has to be something about the default DPI assumed when pasting.  Anyone have any ideas about this?

Do most apps copy images to the clipboard that get pasted in your email at the correct size?

In my experience (and I've used a few) - yes, they do.

Try this version:
https://www.donation...elpAndSpellSetup.exe
(just install over current version).

NOTE: to get the new feature to work you need to go to the Interface Options tab and check the new checkbox at the bottom labeled "After selecting clip from system tray left+click menu, paste into last active window."

Just tried this myself. Very useful...

Hi,

I may be missing a trick, but if I use a screen capture app to capture a screen-shot of an area of the desktop (say), although I can view the screen-shot in the main CH&S window at full size, when I paste into an e-mail (say) I get a tiny, almost thumbnail image as a result. Sure I can use the grab handles to increase the size and I find that the image is at the correct resolution but I just wondered why CH&S doesn't paste a screen-shot at the 'captured size' by default.

Thanks.

It sounds like the double click of the tray icon may be confusing CHS about what the last active window was..


That's my theory too.


Does it also work fine and reliably if you bring up the main CHS window by using the hotkey (ctrl+alt+W by default), or via the quick popup hotkey and then hitting w (ctrl+alt+Q followed by W)?

Yes to both.

If you try a straightforward Ctrl+V afterwards, does it paste the correct clip?


Yes, it does.


This is my experience with an outliner (InfoQube) that uses Internet Explorer for it's text pane (html) - I'm not sure whose 'fault' that is.

I dont use Outlook myself so cannot confirm, but I'm wondering if it uses the IE engine as well for html text.


Not sure myself. I tried performing the same 'double click paste' to a web form field with same result - no paste. The double click paste also fails after single left clicking the tray icon and selecting 'Show Main Window'. Bizarrely though, if the main CH&S window is already open the double click paste works, and it also works if I bring up the main CH&S window by right clicking on the tray icon and selecting 'Show CH&S main window'.

FWIW, I have no problem pasting in a forum I frequent that uses html formatting (not BBCode) - but I always use Firefox. (Just tried it in IE, the forum doesnt work properly there :( )

Clipboard Help+Spell / Newbie question on Dbl. Click to paste.
« on: September 24, 2012, 06:25 AM »
Apologies in advance if this has been covered, but I couldn't find a definitive answer:

I have a problem with double clicking a cell to paste to the active window. If I follow this process it doesn't work:

1) Open a new blank Outlook email and ensure it is the current active window
2) Open the main window of CH&S by double clicking on the tray icon
3) Double click on a clip cell which also happens to be a 'Favorite'
4) Nothing happens, even though the CH&S main window confirms Outlook to be the current active window.

Thanks. Otherwise, very nice.

N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012 Release: Ethervane Echo
« on: March 02, 2012, 05:14 AM »
(a) Can you give me the link for this application? I'd have to run it to see what happens. There are several reasons pasting might not work.

http://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/stickies/

(b) When you paste in Stickies, does it work with Ctrl+V and Shift+Insert? Or only one of these key combinations?

Works with both.

(c) Try: Tools -> Preferences -> Pasting clips -> PasteMethod. By default this is set to Ctrl+V. Try changing it to Shift+Insert and see if it helps. (Although this might affect other applications).

Tried that. Makes no difference. No kind of 'Quick Paste' works to a desktop 'sticky note'. How is it working with Ditto?

This was added in one of the recent versions: Tools -> Preferences -> Display -> MinimizeOnCloseButton -> set it to True. However, remember that Echo will minimize whenever you click outside of it (or switch to another application). In practice, there is almost never any need to minimize Echo manually, it will minimize itself if you allow it.

Found it. Don't know how I missed it!

(a) Are you using the standard or portable version? (Or have you changed from one to the other?)

Standard on Win 7 Pro X64. Standard version is all I've used.

(b) Does Echo display any other dictionaries (US English, for example)? Or are no dictionaries available at all?

Spell checking while editing simply produces an error pop-up that tells me 'No Spelling dictionaries are available...' On installing EE initially I chose English (UK) and un-ticked the other 2 languages. In the Spellchecker section in Preferences it showed 'Last Language' as being English (US). After using the separate spell-checker installer the Spellchecker section appears as in my screen-shot here - no 'LastLanguage' and no 'DictionaryPath'. Changing the 'DictionaryPath' to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Ethervane\Common\Spell" (which is where the English (UK).adm file is) makes no difference. It still doesn't work, with the same error as above.
 
(c) Click Tools -> Database information, and scroll down to the bottom. Near the end of the list you'll see "Spelling dictionary folders". There should be one or two directories listed there. Check if these directories exist and if they contain the dictionaries. If not, you can download and install the dictionaries separately on the Echo download page.

My second screen-shot shows you what's there. Both exist, except that the 'second part' of the 'Spelling Dictionary Folders' path (C:\Program Files (x86)\Ethervane\Echo) does not contain any dictionary related information that I can see.

« on: March 01, 2012, 03:58 PM »
Sorry, I think I posted in the wrong place before so this is a double post but hopefully now where it should be...?

Hi,

New to Ethervane Echo. Prefer the interface to Ditto - much clearer, and the tabs are excellent. Also love the fact that if a clip is sticky it cannot be deleted - which it can in Ditto.

I run an application called 'Stickies' which is a very well known , very popular desktop sticky / notes application. However whereas Ditto will paste directly into a desktop 'sticky' note, EE will not - other than using a 'manual' Ctrl-V. Any thoughts on that?

Things I do miss from Ditto:

The ability to close the main window to the system tray using the X. Seems that isn't possible with EE and I've closed it completely by accident a few times this evening.

And ummm...images. I understand why they're not covered by EE but, for example, my daughter uses this extensively in her college work copying multiple image 'snippets' from the web to put into her assignment documents. Would it not be possible / acceptable to include the functionality in EE even if it's turned off by default?

Oh....and I can't get the English UK spell checking to work. EE can't find the dictionary...
