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 :( )

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.

(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.

(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.

Sorry, I think I posted in the wrong place before so this is a double post but hopefully now where it should be...?


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...
