MX 17 Repository: The CopyQ Thread

#1 Post by Stevo » Mon Apr 02, 2018 3:14 pm

We now have the latest CopyQ 3.3.0 in our test repository, backported from Debian testing now that it's in the mothership's repositories.

Edit: for more features, also install the copyq-plugins package. It's only recommended, so MX will not add it by default.

CopyQ is a very featureful Qt-based clipboard manager.

CopyQ monitors system clipboard and saves its content in customized tabs. Saved clipboard can be later copied and pasted directly into any application.

Items can be:

* edited with internal editor or with preferred text editor,
* moved to other tabs,
* drag'n'dropped to applications,
* marked with tag or a note,
* passed to or changed by custom commands,
* or simply removed.

Features:

* Support for Linux, Windows and OS X 10.9+
* Store text, HTML, images or any other custom formats
* Quickly browse and filter items in clipboard history
* Sort, create, edit, remove, copy/paste, drag'n'drop items in tabs
* Add notes or tags to items
* System-wide shortcuts with customizable commands
* Paste items with shortcut or from tray or main window
* Fully customizable appearance
* Advanced command-line interface and scripting
* Ignore clipboard copied from some windows or containing some text
* Support for simple Vim-like editor and shortcuts
* Many more features

Installed fine and parked itself in the tray when run. I tried a number of the basic functions and had a look at the documentation. Everything worked as advertised and CopyQ is a very useful tool. I find Clipit more convenient for my relatively simple needs - it requires fewer clicks for the operations I most commonly use. I don't think it's worth investing my time in learning CopyQ's keyboard controls, which would probably make things faster.

I will leave it installed - I could be tempted to try again some time.

I have been using it since yesterday and have had no issues with it. I do like it and will retire clipit.

CopyQ is the best. Be sure to check out its Snippets plugin. Nice to see the latest version made easily available here for everyone.
