Delay pasting with 5.9 Beta 1

ProbablyMike
29 discussion posts
Since installing 5.9 Beta 1 yesterday there is a noticeable delay between selecting an item from the clipboard manager window and the item getting pasted, about a one second delay.

Doesn't matter what program it was copied from, or being pasted to, nor if I select with the mouse or keyboard.

Attached is a log where I pasted the 1st item from the clipboard manager into Notepad.

Hi Mike,

Does it matter what type of item your pasting?

Thanks!

Hi Owen,

Only tried with text before, just tested with a small image and get the same delay.

Once it's in Windows the clipboard it pastes with Ctrl+V instantly as usual, it's just from the clipboard manager.

Get the same delay if I select the 1st item multiple times, so it's not dependant on where it is in the list, but have noticed the delay in not all the time but about 70% of the time I would say.

Hi Mike,

Strange, I can't seem to reproduce that on my end. Does the issue persist if you roll back to the non-beta version?

Could you also send me over a backup of your settings? You can grab them in the Options tab of the ClipboardFusion settings window, using the "Export Settings" button.

Thanks!

Hi Owen,

I went back to 5.8.6 and the issue went, no matter how many times I selected an item it pasted immediately.
Did check for updates & let it install 5.9 beta 1 and the issue returned.

I've included the export of my settings.

I've recorded a little gif showing the issue in action

Have just tested this on a 2nd PC, and it has the delay but much less frequently, and also more when using the mouse to select an item, whereas on my main PC it's with the keyboard & mouse the delay happens.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for sending that over. It seems to be an issue with the "Keep Clipboard Manager open after losing focus" setting. If you enable that, does the issue persist?

Thanks!

Hi Owen,

Yes I think you have found it there.
If I enable "Keep clipboard manager open" the issue goes away, and comes back again if I turn it back off.

Hi Mike,

We've released ClipboardFusion v5.9 that should have this fixed up. Please let us know if you run into any more troubles after updating.

Hi Owen,

Looks good now, I've given it a test and have not had the delay now,

Many thanks,

Have noticed while using 5.9 all day, that when an item is chosen from the manager, the manager window will close, then very quickly show & close again!

Wasn't sure if I was imagining it, but have just watched and it does this every time, not a big thing, more of an annoyance when you catch it out the corner of you eye.

Also just found that enabling the "Keep Clipboard Manager open after losing focus" no longer keeps it open, but does stop the double-opening as above!

Hmmm okay, something is odd about the behaviour now.

I left the "Keep Clipboard Manager open after losing focus" enabled as it stopped the double flash of the window but would actually close (as my post above)

Switch on this morning and the manager window now stays open.
Disable the keep open option and the double flash is back.

Hi Mike,

Interesting, I can't seem to reproduce that double flash issue on my end. Have you adjusted any settings since sending over that backup?

Thanks!

Hi Owen,

Only setting I've changed back & forth was the "Keep window open" option.

I've just let my personal laptop update to 5.9 and it too has the double flash going on.

The only thing common between my work laptop & my personal laptop is they both run Windows 10.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for confirming that for me. I was able to reproduce it on my end, so I've added this to our list to fix up as well.

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the update & new beta.
I've updated to 5.9.1 Beta 1, and some good news & not so good!

The double-flash has gone if I select an item with the mouse, but it still happens if I use shortcuts 1-0 on the keyboard.

Hi Mike,

Thanks for letting us know, we'll take a look into those keyboard shortcuts as well.

Hi Keith,

Sorry to say I have also noticed that the delay in pasting is now back in the 5.9.1 beta.
The delay happens selecting using both the mouse or keyboard.

I have just rolled back to 5.9 and the delay is gone!
