Plain Clip Version History

Back to application description

2.5.2, 10/18/2018

  • When using the optional conversion from smart quotes to dumb quotes, the text was inadvertently converted to ASCII. This is fixed.

2.5.1, 11/22/2015

  • Added a preference for converting smart quotes to dumb quotes, i.e.: replaces all occurrences of any of the characters „ “ ” » « with " and all occurrences of › ‹ ‚ ‘ ’ with '

2.5, 02/23/2015

  • Added a preference for performing normalization to Unicode Normalization Form C. Like all preferences, this is turned off by default, but is recommended to turn on.

2.4.8., 09/22/2013

  • Fixed a problem where in certain cases triggering Plain Clip from a shortcut manager could interfere with sending the Cmd-V shortcut.

2.4.7, 01/13/2013

  • Changed the order of the processing steps so that when tabs are replaced with spaces and consecutive spaces are replaced by a single one, it will result in consecutive tabs being replaced by a single space.

2.4.6, 08/12/2012

  • Corrects a mistake which made Plain Clip ignore some command-line switches

2.4.5, 08/09/2012
