clipLogger_v1.4 ReadMe

At one point I needed a quick way to combine copied text snippets. Rather than deal with the full power and complexity (read: extra clicks) of a clipboard manager I created this thing. It logs text copied to the clipboard, putting everything in one textbox for easy access. Clipboard captures can be separated & labeled with a timestamp, or just appended by themselves. It can also log the paths of copied or dragged&dropped files. Aside from manipulating the captured text within the editor, you can paste it all at once into another document, or export it to a file.

Usage Notes

Version 4 or better of the .net framework is recommended. Get it from Microsoft.

No installation; just unpack and run. A settings file and ancillary files may be created in the program folder.

When started: use the checkboxes at the top set what you want to capture (these can also be set from the tray icon's menu); then watch it work while you copy. Wee.

If you want to save the contents of the clipboard buffer between sessions, be sure to go into settings and check 'Backup contents to file'.

Also in settings are the hotkey settings, which I consider a must-have for this sort of program. A hotkey for the main window can be set by checking the 'Add Shortcut to Start Menu' box, then clicking the edit link. You can add a hotkey there (under 'shortcut key'). There's also a "Quick Access" menu you can associated with a hotkey directly from the settings dialog. This menu works like a right-click menu you can use in every application: it comes up next to the mouse when you hit the hotkey, and disappears when it loses focus. Its main purpose is to let you clear or paste ClipLogger's contents when you're working in another application. The commands on the Quick Access menu all have key's assigned to them, so it can be used exclusively from the keyboard.
