Hi,
I was thinking, perhaps some way of making IDE or
editor integration would be sweet. Maybe make gcm a
bonoboo component, so apps could 'dock' a copy list.
This would be so huge for apps like glimmer or ajunita.
This combined with intelligent copying ie. options for
copying a single word, line, or function with one
middle click to send to the copy list, and one to paste
back...
or maybe even an applet would be cool. I think some
users may find an entire window a bit overkill.
just a thought.

    This is on our future todolist. Not our current because we
    first want to get all corefunctionality working before
    adding fancy functionality.

    Our first idea to support a non-bloated-window way of
    working will be that you can dock GCM in a panelapplet
    (and -what already works as a preference is to- remove all
    unnessesairy widgets. The only widget that remains will be
    the GtkCList with only the datapreview column shown).

    We have no plans to build GCM as a bonobo component (yet).
    If there is actually intrest from IDE's like Anjuta then we
    might consider this option. GCM, however, is not
    application specific. We want to build a Clipboard Manager
    for all applications .. not for one application like for
    example Microsoft Office and Microsoft Visual Studio.NET
    have.
