Is there a way to make ditto paste text instantly on enter click after selection on Windows7? (Also see here)

My flow is :

  1. Bring ditto by clicking CTRL+'
  2. Select desired text.
  3. Click ENTER.
  4. Now I need to do CTRL+V to paste it. I want that on the ENTER the text will be pasted.

Also, if you can recommend another clipboard manager for Windows7, it can help me as well.

Edit(1) My options in ditto were already set to paste clip in active window after selection

I had the same problem with Ditto with Visual Studio 2012. The problem was I run VS2012 with elevated rights eg. Administrator Mode. My Ditto did not. I had run my Ditto also in administrator mode. Then it worked.

Hope this helpes.

Under Options/General, turn on Paste clip in Active Window after double click.

Now you can put the caret in the target textbox, bring up the Ditto window, double click the clip you want, and it will automatically paste into the textbox.

Thanks for your answer. However, it does not seem to help me. Please see my updated question. – Andrey Rubshtein Feb 9 '12 at 9:16

This functionality works fine for me, are you trying it perhaps in applications that don't accept Ctrl + V?

If that is the case - go to the help and look for "Custom Keystrokes" (should be file:///C:/Program%20Files/Ditto/Help/DittoCustomKeys.htm)

There it explains how you can "program" Ditto to send the appropriate paste signal to specific applications.

Example: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ditto\PasteStrings\SecureCRT.exe=+{INS} -> This will send Shift + Ins when running in SecureCrt.

Thanks for your answer. Did you mean CTRL+V in your first sentence? – Andrey Rubshtein Mar 21 '12 at 11:26
Yes, Thank you for pointing it out. I updated the answer now. – RonK Mar 21 '12 at 11:30
