Copy/Paste to/from specific memory

The topic title might be confusing but here is what I'd like to be able to do:
In the source page, I'd like to copy multiple items in certain order like Ctrl+C+1, Ctrl+C+2... and then I can paste with Ctrl+V+1 what was copied in 1 and so forth.
Is this type of operation configurable and if yes how can I do it?

How many items do you need to copy/paste at a time? If it's fewer than 10, you can set the "Quick Clipboard History Select HotKey Modifier" option on the Settings > Clipboard History tab. E.g. if you set it to Ctrl + Shift, then you can paste items 1-10 with Ctrl + Shift + 1-10.

Hope that helps!

Thank you Keith for you answer.
The problem with that solution is that I can't copy directly to first buffer. As I copy more text, the first item I copied gets shifted to higher number. Is there a way that what I copied stays in the buffer I coppied to?

For example, if I use shorcut key_a + Key_b + 3 I should be able to paste that with key_x + key_x + 3 at any time, regardless if I use copy/pate in betwee.

Can I use some shorctuc to copy and pin item directly to specific place [ 1, 2 ... ]?

Ah ok, I could write up a bunch of macros that would do that, you'd have 10 macros, one for each slot in the Local Pinned list, then you could use the Local Pinned Quick Hotkey to paste them.

Do you already have stuff in your Local Pinned list, or just the Local History? Just asking because these macros will overwrite the items in the Local Pinned list.

Hi Keith,
Yes, I have some items in the Local Pinned list but I can move them to Online Pinned List. Maybe in some future version there can be more than one Pinned List that can be selected either manually or depending on application you're using.

Anyway, thank you very much in advance for the macros, much appriciated!

Best,

Dejan

Ok, try these out then :)

You'll want to set the quick key on the Local Pinned Items in the Settings as well, for pasting them (see the attached screenshot).

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your help.

I set the quick key on the Local Pinned Items to Shift + Alt.

Now, how do I copy to slot 1 and then how do I paste form slot 1?

I imported the macros but I can't make it work.

After importing the macros, you need to set the key combination on each one. e.g. Ctrl + Alt + 1, Ctrl + Alt + 2, etc.

Then when you press Ctrl + Alt + 1, it should run the macro that puts the selected text in slot 1. If you press Shift + Alt + 1, it should paste from slot 1.

Hi Keith,

I've done as you instructed. However, after applying the shorcut to copy text to dedicated slot, I can't paste it - nothing gets pasted. I checked the pinned list items and it's empty. I tried changing the shortcuts (making sure that there is no conflict) but the pinned list item stays empty :'(

Thank you for your help!

Ah yep, that makes sense. It can't set the pinned item text if the item doesn't exist. It's not possible to create an item at a specific slot, the slots are created in order.

Could you try adding this to all of the macros, above the "BFS.ClipboardFusion.SetLocalPinned" line:

Hi Keith,

There is some progress.

However, when I use the key combination to store in slot #1 it goes to #2 and so on. Pasting from #1 gives the text: --placeholder--

Look at the content of Pinned Items.

Once again, thank you very much for your help.

Strange, they're working correctly for me. Could you try deleting the slot 01 macro and importing it again from the attached zip file?
