The ability to assign hotkeys for pasting History items 1-9 are not working in my pc. My OS is Windows 10.

Are you running ClipboardFusion 4.2 or 5.0 Beta 2?

Hi again. I try both 4.2 and 5.0 beta, but neither is working. Is the shortcuts only for paid version?

They should work even in the Free version. Could you send me a backup of your ClipboardFusion Settings? (Settings > Options > Export)

Tried this yesterday in a Windows 7 VM - in both versions the option is only working within the pro trial-period, as soon as the trial-license is removed the 'Quick Clipboard History Select HotKey' does nothing.

Currently using this macro instead:

Code



More annoying is the clip-index behaviour in the v5-beta, because every time a clip/text is inserted with the macro it's moved to the top of the clipboard history - 'HistoryText(0)', which is quite not useful when trying to e.g. fill out form-fields or other listed data that require a certain order/sequence of copied text snippets. So please add an program-option or macro-parameter to preserve the clip-index when quick-pasting over hotkeys.

It looks like I might be wrong on those being available in the free version. I will check into that for sure though.

I've added a feature request to our list as well for an option to not have the history items move to the top of the list when they're selected.

Hi! I think I may have a solution to your problem. It's possible to get ClipboardFusion to ignore the text returned from a Macro by returning null on the last line, and there is also a way to get ClipboardFusion to ignore any changes to the Clipboard. I've modified the code in your post to get it to do what you want

We've just released 5.0 Beta 7, and the hotkeys for pasting history items are now available in the free version.

We've just released a new ClipboardFusion Beta (http://www.clipboardfusion.com/Download/Beta) and on the Settings > Clipboard History tab, there's now a "Show Clipboard changes made by ClipboardFusion" option. If you disable that, pasted history items won't be moved to the top of the list.

Hope that helps!

Solution from Thomas worked like a charm for me, thanks!

@MK007: In 5.0 final, you can disable the "Show Clipboard changes made by ClipboardFusion" option on the Settings > Clipboard History tab as well

Can the Windows (WIN) key used as 'Select Modifier' at all with a standard keyboard layout when running Windows OS? All key-combinations (SHIFT/CTRL/ALT+WIN) seem to be already assigned by the system. Is this choice as modifier-key only available for the Linux-version of CF?

Windows reserves a whole bunch of Win + key, and their respective Ctrl/Alt/Shift + Win + key combinations, even ones that don't do anything

Some still work, like Ctrl + Win + X, so it's a bit of trial and error, unfortunately.

Win + [0-9] can be used to switch between open/pinned applications in the taskbar. CF does differentiate between 'regular' numbers (row below function-keys) and numpad numbers, or at least latter aren't bind to be used with the current 'Quick Clipboard History Select' modifier. Maybe an (advanced) setting would be beneficial to choose/toggle if the regular numbers-row or the numbers from the numpad (numeric keypad) should be used to quickly select/paste items from the clipboard history or pinned ones. Numpad keystrokes can be used within Firefox (Ctrl+[1-9] to switch between tabs) but are ignored by the system predefined Win-key bindings, thus Win + [numpad number] could be utilized by CF, or Ctrl + [1-9] by CF and another application (depending on the toggle-option/choice within CF settings). One still always could resort to creating macros instead, yet a simple boolean-option would be more comfortable and faster to change.

Ah I see, thanks for the extra info! I will put a request on our list for an option to use the numpad numbers instead of the number row.

Thanks!

We've just posted ClipboardFusion 5.8 Beta 1, and there's now an option in the Settings to use the NumPad with the quick hotkeys.

Thanks!
