The vector clips from Freehand shown here are identical:
Ok, so what you are saying is you copied something multiple times, and CHS is not figuring out that the clips are identical and should be regarded as duplicates?
I noticed this happening in firefox too, but as you point out, the hashes were different, so I'm guessing that their is something in the blob data that is NOT identical, like perhaps a timestamp.
The solution to this is:
- 1. Live with it and don't worry about having duplicate clips in such a case since it won't happen too often.
- 2. Wait for rules that would let you ignore blob items irrelevant to the content, which could solve your problem if the timestamp (or whatever) is not the main vector content.
- 3. I may add display of hash values for the individual format chunks in a blob so you could ID which one is changing..
I'll also try to add a better caption in the quick paste menu for blob data that has no text.
It might be nice to have a hex viewer dialog you could bring up for blob contents so you could actually see the raw contents of the blob data for this kind of debugging.
