v1.15

Added
1. Command "Copy full filename" in context menu of application name field
2. In text field of file clip short name is selected after focus, if selection was absent
3. Command "Mark favorite" added to context menu of clip list
4. Setting "Ignored applications in capturing clips"
5. Command "Ignore the application" in main menu

Fixed
1. Cutting first char when displaying beginning of large text
2. Changing focus to text field by TAB key
3. Occurrences of text filter with service char "%" were sometimes not highlighted in text
4. Changed keyboard shortcuts for "Mark favorite" and "Unmark favorite"

--

Nice find - program did have some issues when I tried it (1.15), couldn't close the window and when I Exit-ed it did close, but after a few seconds Windows gave a crashed error message "do you want to report/look for solution" dialog.

1.16

Fixed
1. Focus shifted erroneously from list to clip text field when switching to another clip in edit mode
2. Sometimes window at first opening did not take focus
3. In html field Escape key and the paste send commands did not work
4. On program close an error occurred and settings were not saved if list of ignored applications was never edited
5. Multipaste command inserted without separating end of line many copies of one clip

I hope everything was fixed. If not then try uncheck "Fast window open" in Settings dialog.

So far I'm really impressed by this program. The highlight at the top of the screen that tells you the window name and program name is really helpful. The additional data at the bottom (time, characters, size, etc) are also excellent.

Wishlist:

  • A way to customize the hotkeys. CTRL+F3 for example is an autotext feature in LibreOffice.

  • A way to paste to text without opening the main window

  • Right now there's a history depth, but I'd also like a time depth (e.g. nothing older than 2 weeks)

  • Integration with WinMergePortable and/or other merge programs

  • Optional detection of successive, duplicate copy elements (e.g. if I hit CTRL+C twice, there should be only one item added).

  • Similar to the duplicate check above, it might also be useful to detect any copied item already copied in the list and just promote it to the top rather than adding to the list.

  • Optionally A "quick save" that saves to a pre-determined directory (in the portable version, a folder in the local directory) would be really helpful.

  • Minimize/close to the tray (workaround: use DesktopOK)

  • Favorites

    • Alt+Q should let you both enable favorite status as well as disable it

    • Currently you can't disable favorite status from the menu, you have to click the star icon in the right window.

  • Images

    • Ability to right-click on the image and choose view, edit, save, open with, or other items

    • Ability to disable/minimize the image statistics (e.g. 400x300 Pixel 32) at the top of each image

    • When saving images, ability to do so in PNG

1. CTRL+F3 as described in description is reserved (fixed) hotkey for many text editors to search selected text without saving it in search history. So it cannot be changed. It is not independent hotkey for dupblicating standart copy hotkey (CTRL+C). If you need one, describe case when it will be nessisarry. Customization of all global hotkeys is already present except this exceptional hotkey. Or do you want cutomization of all internal hotkeys?

2. A way to paste to text without opening the main window. Good shot. Task created.

3. Time depth. Task created.

4. Integration with WinMergePortable and/or other merge programs is present by option "Text compare application". If it is not working for you describe details.

5. Optional detection of successive, duplicate copy elements. This detection is present but no option to switch it off. So let me know if you want such option. Duplicate detection works on binary level. So it is possible for HTML and especially RTF clips to look like duplacates and even to have same byte size but binary they are not. I can add option to detect duplicates on text level instead of binary.

6. To detect any copied item already copied in the list and just promote it to the top rather than adding to the list is present also (p.5). I don't understand what is the diffenrence with p.5 . May be example wil help me to understand.

7. Custom directory for saving temp clip files. Task created. But file names will remain in old numeric style (example "Clip 4356.txt"). In what cases this feature will be usefull for you? Why temp folder is not usefull?

8. Minimize/close to the tray is present by "Fast window open"=OFF. When it is ON I found no way to make this behavour without reasonable unpleasant effects (only always shown or always hidden in taskbar).

9. Alt+Q should let you both enable favorite status as well as disable it. I don't think that it is good idead. Now you are sure that favorite mark is set event if you ocassionally press ALT+Q twice. There is no big visual indicator of favorite mark. So it is important to be sure only by press. Have you any idea how to make better favorite mark indicator?

10. "Unmark favorite" command is in the Clip menu and no one in list context menu because it is used much rare that "Mark favorite". I don't think it is good idead to add rarely used command to context menu. If you use it frequently, describe your case/example.

11. "Save clip to file" command and "Open clip file with" submenu I plan to add for all clip types.

12. Ability to disable/minimize the image statistics. I will make it much smaller.

13. When saving images, ability to do so in PNG. Actually they are PNG. BMP extension is a bug. Bug created.

I've been using ClipMate for as long as I can remember (at least 12 years). It's commerical (I think I paid 49.95 for it back in the day) but I've definitely gotten my money's worth out of it. One of the (many) reasons I continue to use it is because it had the option of being portable.

It's still around but there hasn't been any active development on it for at least the last 7 or 8 years.

So, I'm always on the lookout for a possible replacement. I haven't downloaded this app but looked through the images and the first thing that I noticed was what seemed to be the lack of a tree structure. Clipmate allows the creation of "folders" and "sub-folders" inside of the app where the user can organize like items (i.e., code snippets, text, pics, etc.). It's not a requirement but it keeps clips organized. It's also possible to customize each folder so that the clips are never deleted or they are deleted after a certain period of time or after a certain number of clips have been stored.

It's also possible to create separate databases to keep work clips separate from home clips or have different databases for different projects as an example. I kind of equate it to MS Outlook where you can have a pst for work, home, hobbies, or whatever.

My question is did I miss something with ClipAngel on this? Is there a way to organize and separate clips within the app?

Thanks,
Bill

Have a look at Clipboard Help+Spell which has also been discussed in the forum, perhaps this is what you need.

I have no plans to add tree of categories. To switch databases and settings you can use portable mode in 2 different copies of app (for example one catalog called ClipAngelHome and other called ClipAngelWork). This way does not require change in code and I think is easier than switch database in UI.
