There are two useful functions in EmEditor Help
1. Clipboard Data history
Refer to EmEditor Help – Macro Reference – clipboardData Object – getData
This macro “displays the clipboard history, and selecting an item will insert that text.”
It much better than use Cycle Clipboard Ring command (CTRL+SHIFT+V).
Because if I have more than 3 or 4 recently copied items, it will be not easy to remember and paste what I need.
Although we can found another similar function in menu Tools – All Commands – Edit – Paste, but this way is in deep menu, and can not set hotkey.
So, suggest to add this macro as default, or create a new Clipboard Data Bar in the right or left side for more convenient.
2. Google search
Refer to EmEditor Help – Frequently Asked Questions – Tools – How can I do a Google search…
Suggest add this useful function in the default External Tools bar.July 29, 2017 at 4:43 am #22134
The “Paste Recent” command is even better than macro, because it can use Shortcut to select which item for paste.
But it can not set hotkey directly, after study, I got workaround solution:
1. Use Customize Menus, specify “Paste Recent” command in “User Menu (2)”.
2. Set hotkey for “User Menu (2)”.
Hope it can set hotkey for “Paste Recent” command in the future.
