[Taking] Taking note without appearence of the main window

Postby wiznews » Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:40 pm

I think that in most of cases we don't need the main window at all when we take a note (at least, that's a case with me). Usually, I select text in some web page, press hotkeys, edit the note, put tags etc. and click to OK at the end. After a note was taken the main window (which doesn't have any function in such case) still remains on the screen and I always must close it after the each note taking.

So, I ask an option for taking notes with hotkeys which will open only the editor.

I apologize if someone still wrote the same idea.

Thanks for a excellent application, BTW.

Hi wiznews, thanks for the suggestion!
Actually this is already possible.

1) Turn Options/Clipping/Silent mode on.
2) Turn Options/Clipping/After Clipping/Open in editor on.
3) Minimize main window to tray.
4) Select text in any app and press the clipping hotkey.

Great! It works. :)

I was always in belief that the silent mode means "take a note immediately" and that this option disables not only the appearance of the main window but the appearance of the editor too. Obviously wrong, it works exactly in a way I like.

Thanks a lot Alex.
