I need to be more specific.

Firstly, I'm on Win7 32bit, and CHS is installed in a custom location on C drive.

The CHS folder does show up under the extended All Programs section of the Start menu.

But it does not show up in the Recently Opened section (lower left) of the main Start Menu pane.

And when I navigate in Windows Explorer to the .exe location and right-click, or when I right-click on the .exe under the Start Menu / All Programs listing, I am not presented with the option to Pin to the Start Menu or the Quick Launch bar. I can do both these things with any other .exe I have ever encountered.

Thanks Skwire. Much of my testing was in Word07, maybe that was a factor. My Bible prog (theWord) monitors the clipboard looking for verse addresses, such as Jn 3:16. When it recognizes one it pops up the text of the verse, with options. It doesn't initiate any clipboard action unless there's a Copy event, to my knowledge.

Finally, I have no virtual program running.

I haven't seen the problem since I cycled CHS.

Thanks for getting back, mouser, especially so quickly.

Excellent license terms. Thank you.

I unchecked "reestablish", and the Bible program interference is gone. Thanks for the explanation.

"Order weight" – a ha!

The extra copy sounds don’t seem to be happening now, perhaps because I restarted CHS? They were coming maybe 5 secs after the copy event. If this reoccurs, I'll get back on it.

On the initial crashes, I'm not sure, but I may have set the Capture hotkey to Ctrl-c, while at the same time CHS was set to automatically monitor the clipboard. Perhaps that set up an internal conflict?

One other thing I noticed, CHS doesn’t seem to show up on the Win7 start menu, nor can I Pin it there.

Hi mouser and community,

I wanted to commend and thank you for CHS. Truly an awesome, high-quality program. Just what I was looking for since CLCL proved unworkable under Win7.

I have a few small problems, and then a few suggestions. The problems:

  • I initially got crashes, until I nulled out the "capture" hotkey. Not sure what that setting does.
  • Is there any benefit to "periodically reestablish clipboard"? Using it, my Bible program periodically would pickup spurious copy events and spawn its own corresponding popup window. Kill spurious events is enabled.
  • I'm getting extra Copy sound notifications after a copy. They don’t seem to do anything but are annoying.

And the suggestions:
  • Multi-column popup menu. This would be a great improvement from my perspective, rather than scrolling.
  • Any way to order peer subfolders in the tree?
  • Initial Setup option to place backup folder in appdata hierarchy (Vista or greater), to make user files backup easier (I know this can be done afterward).
  • Browse button for image editor option. Small deal, but I noticed it.

Also, I'm not clear if my registration will apply to more than one machine.

Thanks again. Brilliant program, obviously with a lot of care invested.

Tranglos, I joined this site to thank you for an amazing effort. This is a professionally-done piece of work that stands out among the many clipboard helpers available. Super solid and configurable.

The one area where I have lost ground in the switchover is the stickies. In my old CLCL, I could organize them in folders, in arbitrary order, and I could give them titles. I also could assign hotkeys for sticky clips. Titles enabled me to identify the clip, but to paste only the contents of the clip. I currently have Echo set to show one line only, which is the title, but I have to clean up the paste afterward.

Also, in that regard, I don't see any way to show more of the clip with a hover-over. This would be useful, but maybe I've missed it among all the options.

Thanks again,
