Clipboard Gramplet

The Clipboard Gramplet provides an easy way to create collections of objects which are persistent over time.

You can select multiple items from any of the list views (except currently Family) and drag and drop them onto the Clipboard Gramplet.

To delete entries, select them and press the delete key.

Double-click selections to bring up the object editor.

Select one (or more) items, and then right-click gives the following popup menu options:

  • See Item details - will show the first selected item in an editor
  • Make Item active - will make the first selected item active in the item view
  • Create Filter from selected Items - will turn all of the selected items (which are of the same type as the first selected item) into a filter

Clipboards will remain persistent between sessions, and you can mix items from different databases. However, you can't currently drag and drop items from one database into another.

You can sort the columns (type, title, and value) of the gramplet.

Clicking on the title of the gramplet allows you to rename the frame.

You can watch the Clipboard Gramplet in action.
