CF Error Window

Dennis Hays' profile on WallpaperFusion.com
While editing a manuscript and using a set of QuickMacros I developed, I'm seeing this box pop up from time to time. I don't believe I'm seeing any errors, but hope you can shed some light.

That's the preview popup for HTML colour codes (which are 6 digits long). Does it only come up when you copy numbers that are 6 digits long? You can disable that, on the Settings > Options tab. The option is called "Show Clipboard preview popup (for HTML Colours and Images).

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the quick help. I didn't realize it was the HTML/image popup and thought I was getting a random CF error. Most of my work when I get a popup is something like this:

“Two interviews today, at 4:00 [delete ‘4:00’ replace with ‘four’] and 5:00 [delete ‘5:00’ replace with ‘five’], then, four tomorrow beginning at 9:00 [delete ‘9:00’ replace with ‘nine’]

Using the first item, I select 4:00 in the text, and then press a hot key (Alt-Shift+D) and my macro program copies the first instance of 4:00 - my selection, writes

[delete '4:00' replace with '

At this point I get a popup to type in the replacement text, four, and Quick Macros writes this and finishes the edit with

four']

From what you wrote, I gather the 4:00 time is triggering the popup.

Interesting! It does indeed appear that the scrubbed times are being detected as HTML colour codes, though I'm not sure why. I've added this to our list, and we'll let you know as soon as we get that fixed up :)

Thanks for helping track that down!
