is there any chance that Jumpcut does not gets / steals the current focus? For example, if you're just renameing a file in Finder and opening the Jumpcut history by commandkey, the renaming operation is aborted because JC gets the focus. This would be _really_ nice!

    This is probably a Mac User Interface mechanism. You can paste into a filename using the menubar item.

    I agree that this looks like an inconsistency.

    Tobias, I'm not sure this is possible, but I'll note it. In general, if Jumpcut doesn't have focus, as far as I know there's no easy way to capture keystrokes and thus allow the user to navigate to her selected clip. For the specific case of Finder file renaming, I'm not sure if I can manage this, but there may be some sort of possibility. Thanks for the suggestion.
