Config number of clipboard history items that are displayed per page

When you open Clipdiary you see the newest items of clipboard history. There are 50 clips per page by default. To see the previous 50 clips you should go to the previous page (click navigation buttons '<' at the bottom of clipboard history viewer window).

Users often ask how to change number of clips that are displayed per page. There is no such option in GUI but you can do the following:

  1. Close Clipdiary
  2. Open config file - C:\Documents and Settings\User name\ApplicationData\Clipdiary\clipdiary.cfg in any text editor
  3. Find "[Options]"
  4. Write "CountClipAtPage=40" on the next line. 40 is number of clips that are displayed per page. If you want 30 or 10, write "CountClipAtPage=30" or "CountClipAtPage=10".
You should get something like

Then start Clipdiary and make sure that you see as many clips per page, as you want.

So you can change a number of clips to avoid the need to use the vertical scrollbar in Clipdiary main window.
Now that is the only way to config number of clipboard history items that are displayed per page. We suppose to add this option to GUI in the next versions.

Starting with version 2.8 you can config number of clipboard history items per page in the program options.

Drag&drop clips

Now you can drag-and-drop clips from Clipdiary to any edit field.
That is a great feature! I myself use it very often, it saves my time.
For example, you need to copy and paste several text fragments from one application to some other.
First you should copy the first fragment and paste it to new place, then the second fragment and so on. Now you can do the following:
1. Copy all the fragments, all of them will be saved in clipboard history.
2. Open Clipdiary.
3. Tell Clipdiary to stay on top (click File->Always on Top).
4. Drag&drop items to needed application.

You'd especially like this feature if you prefer working with mouse rather than with keyboard.

Give to clips your own names

Today I am going to describe an ability to assign names to clips.
There were lots of users who asked us to implement such feature, and you can see it now in Clipdiary.
Starting with version 2.4 you can give own name to any clip. So if you copied information that may be needed some time later, but you do not know where to write it down, you can save it in Clipdiary. You give clip appropriate name to find it easier later.

How it works?
1. Copy text to the clipboard. It automatically will be recorded by Clipdiary and saved in clipboard history.
2. Open Clipdiary (Ctrl+D by default, or click Clipdiary's icon in the system tray).
3. Select the item and press F2 on keyboard, or right-click the item and choose "Rename" from the context menu.
4. Enter new title for this clipboard history entry and press OK.
5. Now you see your item with suitable title, so you can find it easily later.

We hope this feature will help you safely store data and easily find it.
