ClipPaste (Paste clipboard to various destinations)

ClipPaste pastes the clipboard to various destinations. The type of paste is determined by parameters.

Parameters

ClipPaste INTONEWCOLLECTION

Creates a dated collection and pastes files from the clipboard into it. Provides an easy way to get results from an Everything window into Opus. Just select and copy in Everything and run the command in Opus or send it to Opus via DOpusRT.

ClipPaste PASTE

Pastes the clipboard as a dated text file into the source, if the clipboard contains text. Uses Opus' standard paste in all other cases.

ClipPaste SNIP

Pastes the clipboard as a dated text file into a Snipfolder /User\PIM (defined in the script, please personalize), if the clipboard contains text. Does nothing in all other cases. Useful if you like to create/keep notes in a central place.

ClipPaste URL

Splits the clipboard contents by lines and whitespaces and pastes it as Internet Shortcuts into the source (one .url file per line), if the clipboard contains text. Does nothing in all other cases. Useful if you manage bookmarks with Opus and want to bring bookmarks from e.g. Chrome into a folder.

NOLOG

Append to suppress logging in the log panel.
