Clipboard merging shortcut is just a bit too fast

Recommended Posts

What you were doing when the issue happened

Whether you were able to replicate it
Include any screenshots that might help us
Include the version and build number from Alfred's General preferences (bottom left)
 
The Command+C+C shortcut works a bit too quickly, so if I'm just a hair slow (even when I'm consciously trying to be quick) it'll just copy a new entry. This happens maybe a third of the time for me, even when I'm using it multiple times in a row.
 
When that happens I can use the Snippet viewer to reselect my previous entry and try again, but this is inconvenient.
 
A screenshot wouldn't help, but I'd be happy to record some audio of me gathering clipboard snippets if that would.
 
I'm using 2.8.3 (435), but this doesn't seem to be specific to pre-release versions.

The Cmd + C + C is akin to the speed of double clicking the mouse.

 

Can I just clarify how you're trying to use it? Let's say I'm copying two words; First, I copy the first word normally with Cmd + C, which stores it in Alfred's clipboard. Then I select the second word and then, pressing the Cmd key, I press C twice. This doesn't have to be particularly quick, about the same as the threshold OS X uses to consider something a double-click rather than two separate clicks.

 

I'll pop this in Noted, and we'll keep it in mind :)

 

Cheers,

Vero

That's how I'm using it, yeah. :) Just sometimes it doesn't seem to register the Cmd+CC like it normally would. I'll frequently use it ~10 times in a row and it'll work 5 times, fail once, and work 4 more times.

 

I am generally pressing it faster than my double-click threshold seems to be (just in testing how slow I can click to register a double-click) but I'm not sure if I'm just slow that one time when it fails?

 

Not a big deal, just something that was nagging at me a bit. At least I have a clipboard history to pull from!

I'm going to take a look at the logic of the clip merge before v3 release - It will almost certainly be a timing issue, and probably a too fast timing issue, i.e. Alfred is only seeing one item in the clipboard, not two separate identical items.

 

Cheers,

Andrew

Sounds good. I'll watch the pre-release versions and will let you know if any noted changes make a difference.

Let me know if there's ever anything specific you'd like me to test. Thanks y’all!
