I hate it when I have a whole bunch of separate text snippets I need to copy and paste between windows. If you've ever found yourself pulling out Notepad(++) so that you can hold 2 or three distinct strings to choose from, I'm sure you've felt my frustration
Sure, there's Ditto which maintains a list of recent clips, but I just want something that will stay there when I put it there, not move around, and be accessible by an intuitive keyboard shortcut.
So, a few days ago, I used this excuse to dive into AutoHotKey, a nifty platform for writing relatively simple programs primarily based on keyboard and mouse actions.
Ctrl+C+# and Ctrl+V reads or assigns you selected text to a "bin" (choose a number between 1 and 3). Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V default actions are delayed until keyup, but functionally, they're not affected-- they still read and write directly to/from the clipboard.
Don't think I'll be working to hard on this one-- I'll add more bins sometime and change it as my needs change, but feel free to download the script (or the compiled exe if you don't have AHK installed) and play around with it.
