A few items of feedback

This has the potential to be the best single clipboard utility on windows. I've used several and with some updates this could really take the cake. Here's a few thoughts from my first usage of it and maybe consider some of the functionality I've suggested.

1. Improve GUI interaction & consistency.

Size of the popup should have a option to set max height/width, to prevent the entire list from showing if more items are saved.

2. Autotag each clip with the window that is is saved from. (snagit does this and it allows some basic organization to find clips more easily)

3. Allow basic rules based on regex based on window title or contained text. (regex for password could automatically remove passwords or obfuscate, certain apps could be ignored)

4. Allow copies performed within time frame to be ignored, ie autohotkey script changes clipboard a few times, if user sets ignore 1000 ms change in this time frame then those extra copies would be ignored.

5. GUI popup additional button actions (like a pin to pin the clip, or a tag to separate into a more permanent tagged category to come back to)

6. Basic API/command option to disable monitor and renable. For those of us that use autohotkey or any scripting, I'd like to avoid the noise that any clipboard manipulation I setup might generate.

7. Ignore windows via text or regex

Ditto has less potentional, but some great ideas if you take a look at it.

Thanks for letting me shot through some feedback. I look forward to see where this app is heading!

Thanks! We'll add these to our list :)

For #3: You can ignore certain programs on the Settings > Ignore Programs tab.
For #4: Are you just trying to prevent the same text from ending up on the clipboard twice?

#4 - yes and no. Yes, I want to eliminate duplicate entries. However, if a script is changing the keyboard rapidly, then having a threshold for acceptable amount of changes to accept in a timeframe would be helpful. Clipboard manipulation is common with scripts with autohotkey etc, so that feature is nice to have to ensure quick manipulation with a script doesn't clutter the keyboard.

Regarding ignoring... ignoring a program is helpful, except that so much is webdriven. For example, lastpass passwords in the webvault still run under chrome, however, extending functionality to the window title/description text would make this more flexible. Combine this with the ability to monitor the clipboard and parse rules/actions based on regex + window/title... and his app would have a great deal of functionality beyond simply remembering clips. In fact, a lot of the sophisicated c# scripts you guys provide would be more powerful as you could potentionally trigger off one of the scripts based on a regex match. I do this right now with Autohotkey for example. If a TFS ticket is copied to the clipboard a regex match is made on 5-6 consecutive digits and a small message prompt appears in corner with a 2 sec timeout offering to proceed with opening the item in visual studio if I press 1 or in the TFS web viewer if I press 2. Saves so much time!

Ok, thanks! I've added these items to our list and we'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement them :)

We've just released a new beta version of ClipboardFusion ( and these items are now resolved:
  • Ability to pin items directly from the History menu (right-click them)
  • Ability to resize the History menu (now called the Clipboard Manager)
  • Command line options: -pause | -resume | -settings
  • Option to ignore clipboard changes from external programs if they happen too quickly
  • Show what program the text was copied from in tooltip

Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

I believe the rest of the items on your list should now be possible with the new Triggers feature. Please let us know if you have any questions at all :)
