Regarding the Windows clipboard functionality:
[SHIFT] + [Insert] == [CTRL] + [V]
[CTRL] + [Insert] == [CTRL] + [C]
So the insert key being completely useless...I'll guess we disagree there. It is a nice alternative if you happen to work with software that hogs the [CTRL] based hotkeys and/or in VMs.
For issue 2:
It might be as simple as FARR remembering the height of its window between user sessions.
Say, for example, you made a FARR search that resulted in perhaps 1 or 2 results and you adjusted the height of the FARR window because of this. The next time you start and/or use FARR, its window height remains the same, but now you have lots of results. Each entry in the result list must have a default height, which is usually absolute. The other parts of the FARR window can have relative width and height. A cut-off is often the compromise between window items with absolute values in a window supporting relative width and height.
If that is the case with FARR, introducing a minimum width and/or height for the relative values section of the FARR window could prevent the cut-off for the results in the list view. Whether you do that with adjusting the height of the offending window yourself or the author of the software...
Ah, Mouser's answer indicates that there options to control the height of entry results in the list view from FARR, which makes it much easier for you. There are many pieces of software out there who do not have such control built into them and for those the ramblings above are still valid.
