Echo version 1.1.3 build 128
FIXED: Fixed a bug that would cause use count to be unnecessarily incremented in some situations,. e.g. when capturing duplicate clips.more →
Echo version 1.1.2 build 126
This release fixes important bugs. Please download and install this release, especially if you are using version 1.1.1 (published February 21).
FIXED: A significant bug that would cause loss of certain clips when Echo performed database maintenance. This bug affected only certain installations, but was quite severe when it occurred.
FIXED: Minor change to allow Echo to paste clips into certain applications with non-standard windows that do not automatically regain focus (e.g. Stickes). Echo should ...more →
That last history entry was really opaque, so here’s the essence:
Keyboard shortcut to toggle the option to keep Echo always on top of other windows: Ctrl+Y.
Global hotkey to connect/disconnect from clipboard: Shift+Win+]. Disabled by default.
If you typically keep Echo open and on-top of other windows (rather than hidden in the tray), you may like the new option at Preferences -> Pasting clips -> FinalWindowAction. If you set it to waRestore, Echo will restore itself after it has minimized in order ...more →
Echo version 1.1.1 build 122
ADDED: Keyboard shortcut to toggle the option to keep Echo always on top of other windows: Ctrl+Y.
ADDED: Global hotkey to connect/disconnect from clipboard. By default this hotkey is disabled. The default hotkey is Shift+Win+] and it can be changed in Preferences -> Keyboard ->ConnectHotkeyKey and ConnectHotkeyModifier. To enable the hotkey, set UseConnectHotkey to True.
ADDED: An option to control what happens after Echo hides itself and pastes a clip into the active window: Preferences -> Pasting ...more →
DonationCoder has long been my favorite place on the net. Not just “my favorite place for talking about software” – my favorite place on the net, period. So in the kastlfew years, every time I wrote a little app that seemed fit for public consumption, I published it there first: ActiveHotkeys, StopWatch, and now Echo. (And yes, Radio too, but that isn’t quite ready yet!)
So, if you need support for any of the new ...more →
Echo version 1.1.0 build 117
CHANGED: This release uses a different editor control for the “edit clip” dialog. The change was necessary, because the editor I originally used had some random-looking problems with the Addict spellchecker, such as ignoring obvious misspellings, even though they were recognized as such and got the proper red wavy underline. The new editor has an almost identical functionality, with a few minor differences, e.g. no support for marking modified lines. At the moment URL highlighting ...more →
Echo version 1.0.6, build 110
ADDED: Echo can now store its database and configuration files in any user-specified folder (by request). This works the same way for both the desktop and portable editions. Custom folder can be specified on the command line or in the master.config file. This is useful for example if you want Echo to keep its data and configuration in a folder that you can easily include in your backup.
ADDED: A new option to keep main program ...more →
Echo version 1.0.5, build 108
ADDED: When you copy or paste a clip, Echo would always update the clip’s timestamp, so that the clip would move to the top of the list when sorted by date. This is now optional: Preferences -> Pasting clips -> UpdateClipTimeStamp. This setting is still True by default, so that Echo’s behavior does not change unless you modify this setting. (Thanks, Easye!)
ADDED (by popular request): Option to minimize Echo when the Close button on the ...more →
Echo version 1.0.4, build 103
First out-of-beta release, so not many new features this time.
ADDED: System-wide hotkey to paste clipboard contents as plain text. By default this action is assigned to Shift+Win+Insert. When you press this hotkey, Echo checks if the clipboard contains text. If so, Echo removes from clipboard all formats that are not plain text (in effect, “clears” the clipboard of any rich data) and performs a paste in whatever application is current. This gives you a “Paste ...more →
