This clipboard manager looks promising but too many actions are required to just paste. I think it should behave a bit like PTHPasteboard, meaning :
- only 1 click on the menubar icon to show the window (Ctrl-click to show menu)
- auto-selection on mouse over (doesn't work for me on 10.6)
- only 1 click to paste AND close the window
[Version 0.5.1]

Hello ELMARCO,

thank you for having taken the time to post your thoughts on MatchCut.

I'd like to answer to the points you have made.

- only 1 click on the menubar icon to show the window (Ctrl-click to show menu)

Maybe MatchCut is a bit too keyboard centred, probably because my personal preference is to start it with the 'hotkey'. But there should be a faster way for people who prefer using the mouse, agreed.

- auto-selection on mouse over (doesn't work for me on 10.6)

At this time, all what mouse over does is to make MatchCut the active application (if that doesn't work for you, that would be clearly a bug).

- only 1 click to paste AND close the window

Right now, one click just selects the item at this time, to allow other functions to be used on the item. This could also be addressed differently , though.

People may want to paste more than one item in a row. To automatically close the window would be counterproductive then. But this seems to be a perfect candidate for a preference setting.

Much food for thought, thanks again for that,

Dirk

MatchCut helps in finding a specific clipping with search and sort functions to get the right one without having to browse through material that's not needed at this time.

MatchCut is easy to operate, but comes with a help file that details its functions.

MatchCut is currently in beta.
