The long awaited 1.4.0 is finally OUT. There have been a lot of changes and I hope you enjoy the additions as much as I do. Here are the most important changes:
- Automatic paste — You can enable this in the preferences, and it means that automatically after you select an item from the history menu, ClipIt will execute a ‘Ctrl+v’ combination to automatically paste the item into the currently highlighted window/widget. This will not be compatible with all programs (terminal windows for example) but I hope this pleases most people. In some programs you can even change the key combination for paste (like in terminals for example. The default is usually Ctrl+Shift+v there, but normally it can be changed to Ctrl+v). P.S. You need to have xdotool installed for automatic paste to work.
- We are shipping a separate icon with ClipIt, so you can change the tray icon, without chaing the stock_paste icon, which also affects other programs. To use a custom icon, just place an image with the name ‘trayicon.svg’ in ClipIt’s DATA_DIR/pixmaps folder (usually /home/yourusername/.local/share/clipit/pixmaps).
- 1-0 Shortcuts for history menu — This means that while your history menu is open, you can press the numbers keys (1,2,3, etc) so that the entry with that number gets selected. If you have automatic paste enabled, the item will also be pasted automatically, this should enable a much faster operation with ClipIt.
- Search-as-you-type in the “Manage history” dialog.
- Multiple item selection in the “Manage history” dialog. You can now select multiple items in the “Manage history” dialog for deletion.
- [Enter] and [Delete] shortcuts for the “Manage history” dialog. [Enter] will select the currently selected item just like double-clicking it would (only works if there is a single item selected) and [Delete] will delete all selected items.
- Re-enabled the indicator icon as it should now be fixed in Ubuntu.
Static entries and a couple more cool features will come in 1.4.1. Until then, have fun and please report bugs.
