Version 5.2.5b9

  • Changed: New hidden pref "Popup Preview Always Opens Zoomed" (YES/NO).
  • Changed: Web Popups now open larger (at 1000 x 400)

Version 5.2.5b7

  • New: New hidden pref "Keep name always when copying into bin" (Boolean) for keeping the name of the bin even if the copied item comes its own suitable name already. This is useful when copying from FileMaker, for instance, where copied objects often have names assigned.
  • New: The Clip Set selection popup button can now have an up/down button next to it. To enable it, choose the Slim skin and set the Prefs key "clipSetsPopupMenuType override" to 2, e.g. with these commands:
    • defaults write com.irradiatedsoftware.iClip "clipSetsPopupMenuType override" 2

    • defaults write com.irradiatedsoftware.iClip "clipSetsPopupMenu rightAdjust" 6

Version 5.2.5b6

  • New: Items can be added to existing clippings in bins by holding down the Option (alt) key during dragging. Works only with text and file aliases, not with images and other types (sadly, most other apps do not properly check for the possibility of multiple items in the clipboard, hence this restriction). It is also planned to provide a Hot Key for this in the next beta release.
  • Improved: Multiple text items can now be dragged into a single bin.
  • Fixed: Menu command "Copy Text from All Bins" works again (got broken in b5).

    • New: 'text items separator' in 'application' class.
    • New: 'recording target' in 'application' class.

  • New: Hot Clicks for moving and copying a clip to a different Clip Set.

  • Fixed: Using the Copy command in an application, then quickly switching to another app, won't switch back to the previous app any more.
