My idea comes from clipstep
They have similar and different features. But they should be better
I don't need any search feature like Ditto do, because I use hotstring for my most used text and cmd... And I think searching for clips means slow and inefficient. because most of the time we copy text when we just only need it! If it deserves you to search it, it should be in your HotString.CCCCtrl usage
How to copy? --- Hold both Ctrl and C first
(don't release!), then
select any text. A popup will be display in you bottom right
of the screen(just like C _ _ C _ C C
How to paste? --- Hold both Ctrl and V. A popup also will be display in you bottom right
of the screen. The highlight switch between C _ _ C _ C C
Ctrl V until the target one is hightlighted.CCCCtrl
is great, but it seems a little difficult to handle it. Just like playing Piano tiles
, I'm not good at it.
Even thought I can slow down the CCCCtrlC's scroll speed but I can't figure out what exactly I'm chosen(C _ _ C _ C C
only show one popup clip item when I hold the Ctrl key.I think
The clipboard content should be divided into four parts.
To the normal
- private(should be delete after paste it), such as when you fill the excel Mike, 84997979, [email protected], Los Angeles...
- Sequential(Stack, the first coped one should be the first paste one)
, just click
Ctrl+c/v/x like what we do on Windows.To the private(maybe email, password or something important)
, just like what CCCCtrlC do——Hold
the Ctrl+C first
then select the target text. But this kind of clips content have no influence to the normal one(as I said, they are divided
.) Hold the Ctrl+V to paste the content in private part.
In this way the clips content will be auto deleted when we finish the paste action(PRIVATE
!!!).To the enumeration
, just like what ClipStep
do——Click ctrl+c to copy the text, hold
the Ctrl key then tap V/C(v to forward, c to backward) one by one until you find the target and then release the Ctrl key.
But ClipStep has a big drawback
, thinking about that you copy and copy, and paste and paste continuously, tap the C/V to switch your target...... then you have no idea where you are!!!
So we need a list(configurable number to display, maybe can have multi column to display more content.) My idea is that when we hold the Ctrl and tap C for once, it comes out a popup list(highlight the current one and blur the others). Then we know where we are and thus we can still tap C to navigate or simply click the desire one. The popup lost disappear when we complete the paste action.
Or you can just see the picture
below.To the Sequential
, maybe we can use the ctrl+,(to copy) and ctrl+.(to paste). namely 111(ctrl+,), 222(ctrl+,), 333(ctrl+,) then (ctrl+.)three times output is 111 222 333 but not 333 222 111
this is just my idea, but not a request.
sorry for my English.
Any better way to improve?
