Summary0001703: Quick clipboard renaming

I'm now using the clipboard manager a lot, but there's a certain aspect that's really slowing me down. While it's possible to name the clips as a reminder of what each one is, you have to set up the number of clipboards, copy something from the pattern editor, go back to the clipboard manager to double click on the new copy, then rename it. Then you start over for the next clipping.

What I'd like to be able to do is make a copy of something in the pattern editor and automatically a little window opens up to allow me to rename the clip immediately. Just press return and it goes into the next available slot (the next one marked 'unused' or perhaps unnamed as yet).

Now of course I don't want to do this every time I copy something from the pattern editor, so I'm thinking the conditions must be that the copied information is not already saved AND the clipboard manager window is open, or instead of all that, there's a keyboard shortcut to toggle the quick name feature automatically.

Perhaps an extra function in the quickname window would be a toggle to add a new clipboard in case all the others are previously named.

TagsNo tags attached.

To me it sounds like the most sensible way to achieve this would be to have a new keyboard shortcut specifically for copying to a new clipboard item, which would also directly prompt for the name of that item?

Sounds workable from a user pov. I'd probly just replace the good-old ctrl-v with the new shortcut, and if it was a temporary clip that i didnt need to name, i would just hit Enter or Esc. I'll try that if you'll implement it. �
