[Goodie] How to clip text to CN using mouse gestures

Sometimes it's just more convenient to use only the mouse. Alas, CintaNotes yet doesn't support direct drag-and-drop from other applications.
However, there's an easy solution to this problem! If you follow the instructions below, you'll be able to clip selected text via holding right mouse button and drawing "<" !

1) Download a free utility called StrokesPlus from
2) Install and run it
3) Right-click on its tray icon, select "Actions"
4) Add a new action called "Clip to CN"
5) Define a gesture for it (I used a gesture which resembles CN's logo, looking like "<", starting from top to bottom)
6) In the "Lua script" window, write:

Code: Select all


Note that this is for default clipping hotkey Ctrl+F12. If you have a different clipping hotkey, you need to change the parameter
accordingly. For example, I have
acSendKeys("@q") for Win+Q.
7) Press OK and that's it - now you can select some text with the mouse, draw < while holding the Right mouse button, and the text will go straight to CN!

Enjoy! ;)

Another way to do this is using the great program FastKeys ( ).

It's not free ($10) but can do way more things than just mouse gestures. Based on AutoHotkey code.

For doing the same thing, create a Mouse Gesture with the path you want, and add this code:

Code: Select all

Type: Send
Command: ^{F12}
