Feature Request: Sync settings between machines

Dave Warren
9 discussion posts
I'm currently playing with ClipboardFusion's online sync stuff and actually using macros to do more than a basic "Convert to plain text", so far with great results.
The one thing that keeps tripping me up is that I regularly work on multiple computers and my settings are always out of sync.
Would it be possible to have the paid version automatically sync settings through my online account? I'd envision this happening automatically in the background, so that the only thing I need to do is install and enter my username/password.
I realize ClipboardFusion isn't being developed on a day by day basis, but if you'd consider this for a future release, I'd appreciate it!

We actually are considering this for a future version, so we'll be sure to post an update if/when we're able to add it

Great! In the mean time, is there a way to do this manually (possibly via the registry?)

There sure is! You can just export the following registry key and import it on your other machines. Just make sure to exit ClipboardFusion before importing the registry settings.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Binary Fortress Software\ClipboardFusion

Unfortunately macros don't seem to get exported.
I do see "Macro_0_Code"= in the .reg file, but it doesn't get re-archived. Very odd, I suspect it's a regedit limitation.
Handling this supported natively would be amazing.

Interesting! I'm seeing the same behaviour here. Never noticed that before

I'll look into that to see if there's a way around it. We may also be adding online sync for the ClipboardFusion Macros, so I'll definitely post an update if we're able to do that as well.

Thanks!

Ok, I've looked into this further, and it seems that the exported registry keys don't import correctly because of the line breaks in the Macro_X_Code values. So, there isn't really a good way around this at the moment. However, we'll definitely post an update if/when we're able to add online syncing of the macros. If we can't add it, we'll at least hopefully be able to add a better way to backup/restore the settings

Thanks!
