Clipboard Manager stops updating

It seems that my CM periodically stops updating. If I close the app and reopen, it resumes updating without issue. I'm not using clipboard sync. Has anyone seen this?

I haven't run into that before! Do you have to fully restart ClipboardFusion, or just close the Clipboard Manager window and re-open it?

Fully restart the application. I've experienced this on more than one machine. FWIW, I do use it heavily and maintain a lengthy 90d history. I did have history set to 500 items. I've reduced this to 60d/350 items to see if it would help but no change. Happens 1x-2x daily.

As another note, it seems to happen after clipping images more often than not. I can't stay with 100% certainty but that's what I've noticed the past 2x.

When it happens next, if you just clear the history without restarting ClipboardFusion (if you're ok with that), does that resolve it?

So that does fix it, however it's less than ideal of a solution. Any other ideas?

Ok, I think this may be a known issue that's on our list to fix for the next version. The next time this happens, can you check to see if there are any entries in the Clipboard History listed as
"[Whitespace]"
?

Confirmed, it happened again today and I do see [Whitespace]. Interestingly enough, I can do screenshots to the clipboard and those update but text does not update clipboard manager.

Also, if I remove the [Whitespace] entry, CM resumes normal operation! I'll keep testing this and confirm if this qualifies as a feasible workaround (for now hopefully).

Ok great, thanks for confirming! This issue is on our list to fix for the next version, so we'll be sure to let you know when it's been released.

Thanks!

Just a quick update to let you know that this issue (the history/recent items not updating correctly) should be all fixed up in ClipboardFusion 5.7 Beta 3.

Thanks!
