I often copy blocks of text from large documents on the web and paste them into Word or text documents to compile research for writing, and I thought ClipMerge would be really handy for that.
However, I find that, with no apparent rhyme or reason, ClipMerge will only add a handful (the number varies from maybe four to zero) of items to the clipboard.
In the Clipboard tab of LB Preferences, I checked the box next to "Enable Clipboard History," I set the Capacity to 100, I have the Action set to "Copy and Paste," and I have checked the box next to "Enable ClipMerge."
Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong? Does ClipMerge work properly for you?
To test it, I made a MS Word document, and put the numerals
etc up to
on individual, separate lines, then hit Cmd-C on 1, Cmd-C Cmd-C on 2, Cmd-C Cmd-C on 3, etc.
But I only get the "clip" sound about 50% of the time, and when I do it on 20 lines, and then hit Cmd-V at the end, all I get is "20" ... in other words, all I get is the last item copied. Sometimes, however, with maybe three items, ClipMerge works as expected and advertised, so it's not that it never works; it's that it only works intermittently and unpredictably, which is arguably worse.
Thanks in advance for any ideas...
P.S.If it matters, I'm using LB 6.9.1 on a 2010 Mac Pro under Sierra 10.12.6
