Using PopClip 2024.5.1 (4586) MacBook Air M1 - doesn’t do anything except enter after copying highlighted text using PopClip then going to another field and highlighting text and using PopClip again to use the Paste+Enter - I’m expecting the highlighted text to be replaced, and the enter key inputted. Instead the highlighted text does not get replaced, only the enter key is inserted. If I just use the other two PopClip paste functions (paste, and paste =), the text is replaced, without the enter key of course.

I’ve gone through all the usual trouble shooting items in the list, but can’t get this to work again. I remember at some point it did work - but no longer. Is there a more detailed structured check list to follow?

I was testing the paste+enter function in: Finder, Safari, and textedit. I did discover that when using textedit, paste and paste+= work correctly. When using the paste+enter function, the highlighted text is replaced with two (2) enters - changing the replace text on one line to two lines - 2x enter.

I’m going to try closing all programs running in the background to see what is causing this and see if I can isolate the program interfering, if at all.

Without anything running in the background that occur when starting up macOS (no login items etc), the problem is still reproducible. :cry:

Hi @MBehr!

Sorry for the trouble. This one is just literally a stupid error of mine which I’ve just looked in the code and facepalmed. When I posted “fixed” above I thought it was, but in fact it was just pressing enter.

But easily remedied – please install the updated version of Paste and Enter now at Paste and Enter — PopClip Extensions

Just tested, after removing the paste+enter extension, restarting PopClip, and adding the updated Paste+Enter extension.

Sadly no change - using my test text file, and copying one word (highlight and copy with PopClicp), and then highlighting another word, and selecting Paste+Enter, still inserts two returns/enters without the copied text. Something is still amiss @nick

Let me know how else I can assist.


Seems I hadn’t uploaded the new file to the server. I have double checked and updated it now. In case there is any server caching issue, I have also attached it to this post.

(Thankfully I am about to update the extensions directoty backend and extensions will actually have version numbers on them at long last…)

Confirmed fixed and working. Thank you. Surprisingly this already worked on my iMac (intel) and still functions. Not sure why that is. But all good now.

On your Intel Mac I suspect you may have had an even older version of the same extension which carried on working oblivious though everything like a little trooper :smiley:

I think it is necessary for me to always add some small error into every release just to test if people are still using the app :wink:
