Hi Yuri,

Can you add a option for backing up the whole clipboard Manager history with all the clips retained? This would be great for when I need to reinstall windows and want to retain all my clips Smile

Also any chance you can add an option to edit the text clips? Like for example right clicking on a text clip and clicking edit.

Thanks Smile

Yes, I'll add this feature.

BTW. to restore the clips, you have to restore the folder:
PHP Code:
%appdata%\Tordex\True Launch Bar\Clipboard Manager 

Restoring this folder before restoring TLB will save your clips.

I wanted to test this so I saved the clipboard manager folder from %appdata%\Tordex\True Launch Bar\Clipboard Manager then I emptied my clipboard manager.

But when I placed the backed up folder back to %appdata%\Tordex\True Launch Bar\Clipboard Manager the clipboard manager now remains empty with no clips.

What did I do wrong?

Currently there are two places that store CM information. The folder "%appdata%\Tordex\True Launch Bar\Clipboard Manager" contain the clipboard data (in files). And the plugins file (something like Clipboard Manager.tlbplugin) in your toolbar folder contain the list of items. You have to backup and restore both of thses items.

So that's why I could not recover all my clips. I saved the folder but not the tlbplugin. I am Really looking forward to a much simpler way of backing up the clipboard Smile

Thanks again Smile
