Thank you. I added instructions below to my notes.
Perhaps this could be added to program options?

OFF TOPIC: I am not asking you to change the app, take this solely as user feedback:
It took me three days on my new system to figure out that the annoying sound was coming from Clipboard Help+Spell default options to make a sound every time copy function was executed.

Most app sounds should usually be set to off by default with an *option* to turn sounds on.



Clipboard data is stored in the Windows Documents folder.
To set a custom location where clipboard data is stored, separate from where the program is installed, for example, to set Clipboard data location as E:\Program Files\Clipboard Help+Spell

Exit the program.
Use Notepad to open C:\Program Files (x86)\Clipboard Help+Spell\ConfigDir.ini
Edit line
// CONFIGDIR = %MYDOCUMENTS%
So that it says
CONFIGDIR = E:\Program Files\Clipboard Help+Spell
[Without // in the beginning of the line.]
Save the edited file and restart the program.

The program uses folder Documents\DonationCoder\Clipboard Help+Spell to store everything there.

People sometimes move the Documents folder away from C: drive and to a custom location which gets backed up frequently.
We certainly *do not* want everything we ever copy-pasted to be included in those backups and the only way to avoid that is to have a custom storage location that Clipboard Help+Spell could use.

How do we do that?
How do we stop Clipboard Help+Spell from using the Windows Documents folder to store sensitive information in it?
Thank you.

Could you open the attached file in Wordpad. It contains a regular cell phone text smiley.
What would it take for it to remain in the buffer instead of two question marks ?? when you copy it...

EDIT:... I don't know why it is not showing up in the post, it is a .zip file...

So a couple of versions later now, has any of this been implemented and if not, are there any plans for any of them in the future:


1. Tray icon flash disable (preferably by default, but at least an option).

2. Flush Clip History, as a 1-click option on the main menu, right above where it says Exit.
(Probably the most important request, since Flush Clip History would get rid of copied credit card number and other sensitive data someone might be temporarily working with.)

3. This should be default: Misc. Options 1 > CHECK: Update clip modification date on paste.

Aha. Recent Topics you posted in. That's the one.


In my humble opinion, every forum should have that link front and center and separate from everything else since after people come back to the forums, they are most interested in status of threads they already posting in... Thanks again...
