Exclude applications from Clipboard Viewer

Recommended Posts

Certain tools (eg. IntelliJ IDEA or Android Studio) have the buildin  functionality of clipboard history.

They may even do it better in context of the app eg. When writing code they don't display images on clipboard on history list and have better (horizontal) preview (Again this mainly makes sense in context of this certain app)

 

It would be nice to have a way to define app exclusion list - if we shortcut to run Alfred Clipboard history and app is excluded then this keystroke goes to the app and run app native clipboard history (This would allow having a consistent shortcut for clipboard history across all apps).

Hi Igor, welcome to the forum!

There is an app exclusion list.

 

To be clear, are you asking for an option to deactivate the Clipboard Viewer Hotkey when one of these applications is active, in addition to ignoring copied text?

 

If so, you could work around that fairly simply using a workflow.

Exactly

 

Can you help me with defining this workflow?

The Clipboard Viewer doesn't allow you to include/exclude applications, but the Hotkey trigger in a workflow does.

 

So you use a workflow's "smart" Hotkey to call your Clipboard Viewer's "dumb" one. (Note: It's super important to do step 4 before step 5.)

 

  1. Delete your Clipboard Viewer Hotkey

  2. In a new or existing workflow, add a Hotkey trigger and configure it with your preferred Clipboard Viewer keyboard shortcut and included/excluded applications

  3. Connect the Hotkey trigger to a Dispatch Key Combo output

  4. Assign the Dispatch Key Combo the weirdest key combination you can think of

  5. Set the Clipboard Viewer Hotkey to the same weird key combination
