How to set up a Text Listener in Clipstory
Below I want to talk about how to set up text listeners for the Clipstory application.
First of all you should have read this:
or access the application help files (they contain the same information).
To setup a Text listener do the following:
- Open Clipstory and switch to the 'Define Filters' tab
- Press the "Text" button near the 'Add Listeneners For' label
- This will popup a window in which you can define a new text listener.
- in this window all you have to do is simply enter the full path to an existing file name.
This could be: C:\Test\myTextFile.txt
- then after you have entered the file press the 'Add Listener' button. If a warning appears that the file is not created or does not exist then make sure it is created and then press the 'Add Listener' button again.
- the text listener window will be closed and the text listener you have just defined will be presented in the big list from the 'Define Filters' tab. This is actually the list containing all listeners.
- at this point you have your text listener defined and active and it will remain so as long as Clipstory is active. The next time you open Clipstory, all listeners will be activated again.
- all you have to do now is simply continue to work with your computer by copying and pasting text as you normally do. Clipstory will intercept each Copy command (CTRL - V) and will store the copied text into the active listener you have just defined. You can define as many text listeners as you want but each should work with its own file.
Of course that you have to remember the path of the file used above if you want to access it yourself for example using Windows Explorer.
You can also access that file using Clipstory by double clicking the Text listener you have defined and then in the window which pops up you should press the 'Open File' button.
To deactivate a listener you will have to double click it and make sure the 'Enabled' check box is unchecked. Then don't forget to press the 'Add Listener' button to save the listener.
In the 'Text Listener Definition' window (which allows you to define a text listener) you can create a file which doesn't exist by specifying a path like:
but the folder path must exist:
because Clipstory will create the file in that folder if that folder exists.
You can also see the location of the file where all the texts are stored, by looking in the listeners list (make sure you are in the 'Define Filters' tab) under the Location column.
