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.

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.

Future Work

  1. grey out unavailable rows, rather than removing text
  2. enable search (add to ScratchPad)
  3. delete with delete key, but only removes half... why?
  4. allow control+c to copy items to the clipboard
