There are several tabs in Clipboard Manager: "
History" (Clipboard History), "
Pinned" (Local Pinned), "
Online Recent", "
Online Pinned", and "
Macros."
Clipboard Manager Tabs
Clipboard Manager Tabs Toggle Menu
Right-clicking on any of the tabs displays the full tab list. Clicking on the name of any tab within that menu toggles between enabled and disabled states. If one of your tabs is missing from the Clipboard Manager, it has been disabled and can be reenabled via this right-click tab list.
"History" and "Pinned" list items are added to the local system clipboard. "Online Recent" and "Online Pinned" are for clipboard items to be synced across multiple systems. Consider these tab lists 'in-the-cloud' versions of your local "History" and "Pinned" item lists. "Macros" lists your saved Macros and can also be synced.
For quick understanding of clipboard items, icons are displayed in the left-most column representing text
, images
, and files
.
To preview the copied item, hover over it with your mouse.
Hover Preview
The top 10 items in each tab of the Clipboard Manager have numbers
through
next to them.
Quick Select Items
These allow for quick selection using the corresponding number beside the clipboard item. Depending on the tab and ClipboardFusion settings, quick selection will behave differently.
When using the quick selection numbers on the "
Macros" tab, the corresponding Macro will run using the current clipboard data as input (if needed).
Quick selection use on the remaining tabs results in more standard clipboard activity. With the Clipboard Manager active, pressing the number on the keyboard will copy that item again (the same action as selecting "
Copy to Clipboard" from the right-click menu), moving that copied item into the top position of "
History" (and "
Online Recent" if configured to automatically sync copied text).
"
Pinned" and "
Online Pinned" items will not change their order when quick selection is used
.
To have this quick selection action automatically paste the item instead of merely copying it, go to the "
Settings" menu, click the "
Clipboard Manager" tab, and enable the checkbox by "Auto-paste on Clipboard Manager selection."
Auto-Paste Option
The tabs "
History", "
Pinned" and "
Online Pinned" allow for HotKey Modifiers to be used with the corresponding item list number. To configure the HotKey Modifiers for the "History" and "Pinned" tabs, go to the "
Settings" menu and click on the "
Clipboard History" tab. For the "Online Pinned" tab, click the "
Clipboard Syncing" tab instead.
