Windows Clipboard Manager - ^c ^c ^c ^v ^v ^v
« on: June 13, 2020, 01:14 PM »
Hello!

I'm looking for a clipboard manager that pastes back items in the same order they were copied using only ctrl-V.
The key feature for me is to NOT be forced to use special key combos to access each individual clipboard item (like Ditto).

So far I've found only one app that claims to do this, KlipMan, and it was last updated in 2017 (Can't get it to work in 2020-06).

Obviously this app should only be active while doing certain tasks (like filling out forms), and an always-on-top graphic overlay would probably be a good idea.

User Story:

1. User activates this app - sees a big translucent zero on the screen because the copy queue is empty
2. User copies a name, an address, a phone number
3. User sees the number go from 1, to 2, to 3
4. User goes to a form and pastes 3 times, ^v, ^v, ^v - the 3 items are pasted in a FIFO queue style.
5. User sees the big translucent number go from 2, 1, 0 (because the queue has been emptied)
6. User deactivates this app so that normal clipboard function is restored.

Sound interesting?

The main times I've ever needed an app like this was while filling out forms with text.


But if graphics would be just as easy to handle, I imagine that might be useful for pasting multiple clips in Photoshop!

I'm doing it! :Thmbsup:

Awesome! Text-only for v0.1 --we can improve upon initial version to enable images :)

Give me some days as the public domain releases are re-activating, with daily releases now!

Cheers!

OK, I've moved this topic (since it's the active one) to the correct area, and deleted the other one that was already in this section (but didn't gain any replies for some reason).

Carry on :D

Just fyi

1) clibor has a FIFO mode it seems @ https://www.portable...om/index.php?id=2777
2) if you use AutoHotkey the CL3 script mentions FIFO @ https://github.com/hi5/CL3 (you can also burst multiple items to the clipboard in one go it seems so select three lines and made it three items in the clipboard in a certain order 1, 2, 3 or 3, 2 ,1)

Edit 3) CH+S has FIFO as well https://www.donation...index.php?board=49.0 (Help: https://www.donation...om_highlightsub=fifo)

investigating these - thanks!

result:

Clibor looked like it a FIFO mode but I couldn't figure out how to get it to work.

^c^c^c ^v^v^v didn't work when I tried it.

Hello again! The core "^c^c^c ^v^v^v" functionality is programmed! :up:

Currently adding the "bells & whistles" (i.e. icon, single-instance and so on) to package & publish.

while doing certain tasks (like filling out forms)

If you're doing that, wouldn't you be usually pasting fixed text, like lines of an address?  In which case, wouldn't permanent clips be the answer?

I'm pretty sure mouser's Clipboard Help+Spell (CHS) can do what you want.  As an alternative, here's part of the Help file for ArsClip:
Combining Multiple Clips

In this example, the user copies three clips and wants to paste the items using the order they were copied. Notice below that the "last" copied clip is actually first on the popup, so the item numbers are reversed:

Clip 1 - [POPUPITEM=2]
Clip 2 - [POPUPITEM=1]
Clip 3 - [POPUPITEM=0]

I use AHK scripts all the time to paste in fixed text strings.
This app I'm hoping for is for filling out forms (or Excel sheets) with constantly changing input data.
I'll look at Clipboard Help+Spell too!

Thanks

Looks good!
Nice idea showing a list of the queued strings.
I hope they disappear from the list as each one is pasted!

Yep! It works that way.

BTW just sent you a pre-release download link by PM (Github), for you to check main functionality :)

Okay, text-mode is complete! (thanks for your confirmation)

But if graphics would be just as easy to handle, I imagine that might be useful for pasting multiple clips in Photoshop!

Next version comes with image support :)

Question: Should it have the option to start with Windows?

Cheers & many thanks again,

No need. I can put a shortcut in my startup folder if necessary

Got it! Adding image support to call it feature-complete :up:

Will "ping" as soon as it's done.

Thanks.
Just to reiterate my PM bug reports.

text copy-paste is not working yet.
I still can't duplicate the behavior seen in the video - https://www.youtube..../watch?v=WqhK_wDCVv4

I'm Windows 10 - 1909, with no other clipboard managers running

Looking forward to v0.2.0 !
