moderated Re: clipboard question
Hi, Cristóbal. You don't need to copy a blank line to the clipboard to clear it. Just use CONTROL plus C the first time you want to copy something to the clipboard, and Windows will ask you if you want to overwrite the clipboard. If you answer Yes, the clipboard will be overwritten, and only the last thing you copied to the clipboard will be in the clipboard. Then you can resume using INSERT plus WINDOWS key plus C to append to that first item.

If you want to append multiple items to the clipboard with Jaws, it would be insert+Windows key+C. The you could then do the layered command insert+space bar then C to view the multiple items copied. The only thing with appending multiple items, is that you you have to get into the habit of selecting and copying a blank space first. Kind of like clearing the clipboard. Otherwise, you’ll have a bunch of copied stuff you don’t’ want.

Hmmm. The JAWS layered command option only seems to be showing the last thing I copied to the clipboard. I supposed this is useful in some cases, such as to see if you grabbed what you wanted to copy, but not what I needed. Still nice to now know of the Windows clipboard history, the Office clipboard keystrokes, and the Ditto application.

The Jaws layered command insert+space bar then C gives you the following according to Jaws: “opens the Clipboard Text Viewer and displays all text copied and appended to the Clipboard. You can then select and copy text from the viewer and paste it in other applications.”
Bob, or someone,
Could you enlighten me on how to use the Jaws clipboard?
I tried to find it in the Jaws settings center and came up with a big fat 0.

Here’s a sample scenario I’d like help with. I’ll copy a paragraph of text in one program that I need to move to another. As I’m moving to that other document, I’ll notice something and accidentally copy another item to the clipboard. Is there a way to still access the first paragraph I had copied without having to go back to the original location, reselect the text, and re-copy it? That is, does the clipboard retain more than just the most recently copied item and can I access the history? Using Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS Build 19041.867), Office 365, and JAWS 2021.
