auto-copying

Post by ronaldjeremy »

Today someone mentioned this utility in a discussion at lifehacker dot com.

basically, they said this utility has the ability to ro unix-style text copying, where all you have to do is highlight some text and that text automatically gets copied to the clipboard.

I have downloaded XMouse and cannot figure out how to get this functionality working?

If XMouse cannot currently do this, I would like to make it a feature request -- there is an extremely high demand for this functionality done right.

I think you have got my software confused with someone else's.
My software \"X-Mouse Button Control\" is not \"True X-Mouse Gizmo\" but I can see how the names could be confused..

It looks like your after the \"download\" link of this page
http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/nt/TXMouse/

Then again, some of those ideas look kind'a neat and could be integrated into XMBC in the future!

Thanks,
Phil

Actually the reason I came here is because the gizmo is unreliable (always "turns its back" on me), and doesnt give you the option to disable the x middle mouse button and autofocus windows. All I am really looking for is simple copy-text-on-highlight.

If you can make that happen, that would rock! lifehackers would be all over it.

I'll see what I can do for the next release, but I'm rather busy right now with other things, so I cant promise anything quickly.

Thanks,
Phil

You havent met the support requirements to deserve a response. From the TXMouse page:

I'm with ronaldjeremy. I'm also looking for such an application that can automagically copy selected text, however which doesn't brake the ability to use middle-button under e.g. Firefox simultaneously.

(I use autocopy addon for Firefox which works great there; wondering if it is possible to use X-Mouse Button Control under any other Windows application same way).

Looking forward to hearing news from you, phil

these emots are nut!

anyway, thanks for helping. I knew both DrakKing and X-Mouse Gizmo, but they didn't work fine to me. However, I reconfigure my mouse settings (by defining the 4th/5th key to paste) and now this combo works pretty well.

thank you.

Nope, after a day of testing this topic comes back.

Gizmo/DrakKing would be great if they could:
- copy selected text to a \"second clipboard\" (which could be e.g. some string stored in the memory; it is important not to interrupt the windows clipboard, I believe);
- paste copied this way content in middle-button-click (however, you could specify under which application it works/doesn't work - e.g. I love the idea of opening new/closing existing tabs under Firefox),

What do you think?
Is it possible to add such a functionality to XMouse Button Control?
