Seems like I either had this problem before and fixed it, or I just learned to live with it. ANy ideas? Thanks!

I find that things sometimes get locked if they're nor "Running As Administrator."  Maybe try that?

Ok, closed the program, then r-click and Run as Administrator. No, that didn't work.

Does everyone else have the ability to delete clips? I've tried deleting clips with no contents and clips with contents, nothing happens....

I'm wondering, is there a way to install a 2nd copy of CHS? Maybe to test it out?

Or should I backup the db, uninstall, and reinstall the latest version. I believe I have paid for this twice, which is not a problem, I just want it to delete, would make life simpler for me than recycling clips :)

There are portable and install versions available. Probably best to make sure they not both running at the same time. It's possible they both will use the same default folder for clips (you can choose folder in settings if you want to change)

I can check later re deleting clips.

I'm able to delete clips here with portable CHS on Windows 7
All three methods work:
Select the clip in the main pane then:
  • press delete key
  • right click + delete
  • click delete icon

Maybe a repair database might help (backup first)
In Options, Other Stuff >Backup Maintenance

Sorry, I forgot, I'm actually using the Alpha version (see below) -- it's very stable, the Alpha aspect is related to being able to copy/save clips with formatting.

DOWNLOAD Alpha Version:

Repair db, ok. But no change to deletion

Alpha version seems to work.

Ah, the alpha version is jacked up, doesn't show the excerpt in the preview pane, clip text or whatever....  :mad:

Well, after a lot of struggling, I've switched to the Alpha version, so hopefully it will continue to function reliably.

do you still have this problem? (I dont, but on Win 7 now)
if it is still a problem, probably best report it in the alpha thread and mouser should sort it

No, the alpha v2.55.0 is now working as expected, I don't know what changed between running it last week and running it yesterday. The first time I tried it, the preview window was gone and I searched the settings but could not find it.

I set the regular version not to start with Windows and the alpha version to start with Windows.

BTW, where is this alpha thread? Thanks for the reply.
