    'Hotkey for screenshot' popup; no way to disable

    GodzFire · 3 · Last reply by Yaroslav

    Hello. I keep getting a 'Hotkey for screenshot' balloon popup from the tray icon. I have looked at all the app settings and found no way to disable this obtrusive message. I have disabled screenshots as well. How can this message be permanently turned off?

    Selection copied incorrectly

    Working on a word document with tables and table of content section. If I highlight the text( inc tables, sections etc.) I get the copied noise. If  I then paste with formatting, I only get a single word.

    If I do a copy (ctrl + C) it will then be stored correctly

    copying rich text w/formatting from OneNote results in plaintext clip in ClipClip

    ClipClip · 2 · Last reply by ClipClip

    Here is the use case:

    1. In Microsoft OneNote, have rich text with formatting (bold/italic, bullet list, etc.).

    2. Copy the text.

    3. As a test, paste the text into Microsoft Word. See that it is copied with all formatting intact.

    4. In ClipClip, see that the clip is plain text. When copying the clip out of ClipClip, the text does not include formatting.

    How to produce a ClipClip clip with rich formatting from OneNote?

    At startup always get error message

    Chinatablet · 1 · Last reply by Chinatablet

    Could not load clips. They might be empty or in use by another program.

    My guess is that it's trying to load the 5 clips I have saved in a OneDrive folder, and that OneDrive hasn't yet completed startup. I'm currently in Northern India (for next 7 weeks or so) and internet here is very laggy. Some locations have ping times of .2 to .4 seconds.

    Doesn't seem to be a way to upload images, only fetch from URLs, and it won't fetch from a Dropbox URL either, apparently. So, here's my Dropbox url to the image:

    Paste menu does not work properly when using multiple screens

    Luca Zenari · 2 · Last reply by Yaroslav

    My PC runs Windows 10, and is set up to use 3 screens; main screen is 4k, secondary screens are 1080p (I don't know if it's relevant, I'm just giving as much information as I can)

    Whenever I try to paste from the paste menu into a window in my main screen, everything is fine.

    When I try to do the same on my 2nd or 3rd screen, the paste menu pops up and I can correctly select a clip from the list to paste; but if I try to use any of the other functions (e.g. click on the

    persistent upgrade FAILURE

    Tony Minnichsoffer · 0 · Posted

    Every time I sign on I get a message that there's another upgrade. However, when I click to upgrade nothing happens. What a mess! How much more annoying can you make your system?

    I don't want something that constantly asks me to upgrade. Fix it. I am not interested in being your beta test UNLESS YOU PAY ME!

    Configuration has no way to save / apply / close

    There doesn't seem to be any way to close the Configuration window except ALT+F4 which doesn't apply changes, so essentially no configuration changes can be made.

    Folder List Position

    Peter Symes · 1 · Last reply by Yaroslav


    Just starting with ClipClip (W10) - thanks for a great utility.  Still exploring (does the manual referenced on the website exist??) but one issue. 

    I hit Ctrl-Shift-V and the ClipClip window opens.  I move the mouse to the stored clips line, and the arrow that calls up the folder list.  Sometimes the list appears right alongside the arrow, sometimes elsewhere (like on the far corner of the screen), sometimes low down so that only some of the folders are visible, sometimes not at all(probably off-screen).

    Am I doing something silly??

    Cannot fully uninstall

    Rob · 1 · Last reply by Yaroslav

    I installed clip clip, wan't a huge fan (sorry) and then uninstalled (Windows 10 pro).

    Even though the app is going, the CTRL+SHIFT+V function still brings up the clipclip method of pasting.  

    How can I get rid of that function?

    Thank you

    It seems like clipclip only runs with administrator rights?
