Is there a way to disable the Clipboard

Recommended Posts

Yes that seems to do it. 

 

Thanks.

 

This other company that makes iclipboard felt one of my other programs that has a clipboard feature might be causing a problem with iClipboard. I seemed to isolate it to Alfred but I'm not sure. Anyway, I thought if I turn off Alfred's clipboard feature rather than not running Alfred I'll see if this supposed conflict is eliminated. The iClipboard people are saying that if I can isolate the clipboard software that is causing the interference then by not running it the conflict will go away. I don't want to not run Alfred so I'll see if this does the trick or if even Alfred is the one. It's tricky testing these things to isolate for sure which is causing the problem.

 

Thanks David

Not sure from the response if you actually found the setting but if you go to Alfred's Prefs->Features->Clipboard there is an option at the top that is titled Clipboard History. Says Persist for <dropbox>. Just untick that option. That turns off the clipboard history feature.

Hey Andrew,

 

Thanks very much. Yes, that's what I found and as soon as I turned it off when I clipped something nothing appeared in Alfred's history.

 

So, that's exactly what I was looking for.

That was David helping, not me :)
