Version 1.0 beta 16   Release Date: 4/25/08
  • - a new contextual menu plugin which lets the mouse go on the "Copy to Archive..." menu command to copy to the next free slot in the current Archive.
  • - new key command, i.e. command + double c (c and then c again) which allows copying directly to the next free slot in the current Archive
  • - the menu which drops down from the floating icon shows some of the preferences which you can be set faster here than from the preferences window.
Version 1.0 beta 15   Release Date: 4/18/08
  • - the latest Bean sources are adapted to the CopyPaste requirements and the new Bean is in the bundle.It is as usual necessary to delete all other versions of Bean, including those in older CopyPaste versions (don't keep old versions of copypaste around), which the Finder will not show in search results. also to work perfectly CopyPaste should be installed into the applications folder.
  • - this one implements a new "lost password" button in the preferences,
  • - the CopyPaste menu from the floating icon now works correctly
  • - the Make Sticky command from the contextual menu on the background of the browser works
  • - the delay for Quick Copy is adjustable (pieter's not peter's idea)
  • - bug fixes
Version 1.0 beta 14   Release Date: 4/15/08
  • - can now open the browser using the small clipboard icon.
  • - a click on the small clipboard icon now turns the browser.
  • - click and hold (or ctrl-click) on the small clipboard icon shows the copypaste menu
  • these three all work if the small clipboard icon is showing and that is controlled in the preferences.
  • - quick copy function (from the old copypaste) can now be enabled in the preferences. select something and hold the mouse button for one second and it copies. click somewhere and hold the button for one second and it pastes.
Version 1.0 beta 13   Release Date: 3/30/08
  • - a new button in the preferences allows to import clipsets from copypaste-x (note that if you have existing copypaste-pro archives with the same name, this command will effectively replace clips in these archives.) make sure to back up any old copypaste archives before using this.
  • - the floating clipboard icon (if on in the preferences) smartly hides itself if dvd player, vlc, eyetv is in front.
  • - the preferences now stores the users e-mail and password and compares them at launch time. this makes it necessary to enter the registration information again. exterminator@work still works but will expire soon.
  • - a new contextual menu which avoids crashes when copypaste is not running. this installs itself automatically, but you should quit mail and safari and start them again. the reason is that the system always makes a copy of all contextual menu plugins in memory for each running program. therefore even if you install a new contextual menu plugin, the old one is used as long as you do not restart every program. thats the reason why you sometimes have to restart the whole computer.
  • - other bug fixes.
Version 1.0 beta 12   Release Date: 3/27/08
Version 1.0 beta 9   Release Date: 2/20/08
  • - You can copy directly to the archive from the menubar-menu. Highlight some text then you select an existing slot, the clip goes there. If you let go on the "Copy to Archive:.." parent menu item, you add the clip with the next free hotkey to the Archive. To set a different hotkey for that archive you have to either use the keyboard command-c-# or you can later changed any assigned hotkey from the Clip Browser.
  • - If you activate the "show browser on command mouse at screen edge" you get the browser with archive view from the RIGHT side and from the LEFT side you get the browser in history view. its a fast way to view the clips. The command-c to return from archive to history and vice versa is still working
  • - The e-mail comment now breaks the line after 80 characters ( less if the word boundary is later)
  • - You can edit each clip by holding the command key and going to the menu of history items and selecting it. Doing that will open the clip in Bean This also works in the contextual menu.
  • - You can reverse the preferences setting to paste without styles on the fly by pressing the option key and choosing the paste from the menu. That means if you normally paste text with styles and you press the option key, it pastes plain text without styles.
  • This works in the contextual menu as well.
  • - One remark indicated the little triangle is hard to hit in the browser. It is not necessary to hit the triangle if you use the right mouse button, (or two-finger-on-trackpad click). The triangle is there for those who do not know how to locate the menu with right mouse click.
  • - One new tool is "Open selection in Editor"
  • - One new tool is "Send selection in Mail"
  • - One new tool is "Open selection as URL"
  • - The installer for the contextual menu now removes the old CopyPaste-X plugin along with the previous pro plugin.
  • - Make sure to install the new contextual menu plugin. The contextual menu plugin is updated as well and has to be replaced to be compatible with the changes above.
Version 1.0 beta 8   Release Date: 2/14/08
  • - bean (the clip editor) is built in. open via the clip browser.
  • IMPORTANT
  • 1. older versions of Bean and CopyPastePro have to be removed from the Applications folder
  • 2. CopyPaste has to be copied into the Applications folder
  • 3. You have to restart the system (or log out&in) to notify the system of Bean inside CopyPaste.
  • - the clip browser is off by default and can be turned on in the prefs.
  • - speedup in all functions.
  • m a n u a l
  • it has not been updated yet for this new version. it will be as soon this week after we get this beta out. anyone (any beta tester) who enjoys working on manuals is welcome to join me in updating and improving it.
  • b u g s
  • in the last version there was a certain delay when using the clip archives with command-# key-combo which caused pasting wrong clips. this should be fixed. the clip archives did not work at all on overwriting existing slots. this is fixed
  • b e a n (the word processor)
  • bean now is integrated into copypaste (the application bundle), which is a good thing, but (important) you have to take care of three things:
  • 1. older versions of bean and copypastepro have to be removed from the applications folder
  • 2. copypaste has to be copied into the applications folder
  • 3. you have to restart the system (or log out&in) to notify the system of bean inside copypaste.
  • until you do these three things, you have no clipboard editing feature using the built in bean.
  • p r e f e r e n c e s
  • the preferences have been cleaned up quite a bit and the defaults set to be least confusing.
  • the "launch at login" now is a checkbox and it simply reflects the system setting and acts on it, which means you see whether *any* copypaste version is registered for start at login. if you disable and then enable the checkbox, you can make sure that the current version of copypastepro is registered to start at login. if you later use the system preferences to unregister copypastepro, the checkbox will reflect that correctly and will not try to re-register copypastepro. that was one misbehavior in copypaste-x.
  • also there is a new setting for opening the browser on command-mouse-move-to-screen-edge. this is off by default. the behavior has changed a little, so that you first have to hold down the command-key and then move the mouse. it was quite disturbing to have the mouse at the screen edge and get the browser when you wanted to use the command key for other functions. the behavior now should be satisfying.
  • a u t o m a t i cu p d a t e s
  • the update mechanism has changed before it worked but put up a status window that sometimes would be behind other windows and need to be dismissed unfortunately leaving copypaste menus all grayed out and people wondering how to quit copypaste.
Version 1.0 beta 7   Release Date: 12/12/07
  • - new technique to access the horizontal browser. hold the command key and move the cursor all the way to the right or left of the window.
  • - new tool in the clip browser contextual menu to send a clip via mail.
  • - many fixes.
  • - removed the vertical clip browser (it will return in a different form).
  • - check updates menu and code added (is not setup to work yet).
  • - bean editor added for editing and saving back clips (history or archives)
  • - display clips in the browser as RTF which means styles and colors are included.
  • - horizontal browser now works better and faster with even 50 or more clips in the history.
  • - registration added.
  • - many other things....
