New Feature - Suspend ClipboardFusion

Dennis Hays' profile on WallpaperFusion.com
At some point I'd like to see a hot key/content menu item to suspend cf from operation - not grabbing from the system clipboard. If implemented, changing the color of the system tray icon or adding an overlay to the icon would indicate whether CF is active again.

I use another macro program and some of the routines copy multiple instances of text during a single session. There is no need for cf to become involved and grab any clipboard text during this time.

I've added this to our feature request list, and we'll post an update if/when we're able to implement this functionality :)

Thanks!

We've just released a new beta version of ClipboardFusion (https://www.clipboardfusion.com/Download/Beta) and there's now a "Pause/Resume ClipboardFusion" hotkey. Please let us know if you run into any trouble after updating.

Thanks!

The Pause/Resume hotkey feature is working perfectly. Great addition to CF.

The only problem I have with Beta 4 is sometimes the tray icon disappears indicating to me it's not loaded. However, upon going to the Start menu, I get a message it's already running. The "cure" is to use Windows Task Manager to kill the process and then reload. Not a big problem, just somewhat annoying.

Strange, I've never run into that before. Which version of Windows are you running?

I've seen this on both Windows 7 Professional and Windows 10 Professional. I also have running in the system tray:
Quick Macros
Roboform
PNotes.NET
WordWeb
Listary

One or more of the above may be associated with this error as I have the same things running on both computers. It's the only commonality I can find.

As this is a sporadic problem and only annoying, I wouldn't put this anywhere near the top of your list. :)

No worries! If you notice any steps that can reproduce this, just let me know. Also, next time it happens, can you check the tray overflow area to see if it maybe moved there for some reason?
