Works ok, but Typer Task is much better imo.

Been looking for a desktop program like this. It uses virtually the same interface as e.ggtimer.com, which I've been using for while.

Outstanding program for pulling bits of text out of menu items that resist other tools. I use it at least once every few days for writing HOWTOs or bug reports.

Very nice and quite useful thanks for your work.
