Quick Cliq 1.3.3 preview

Hello, friends!
We were working on new Quick Cliq GUI design since the last version, and here is the first screenshot how it will be looking:

The man, running something out from Quick Cliq

Important changes:

  • All item’s properties moved to separate float window, which appears when you right click on the item.
  • Each menu’s colors will be shown inside the list and any changes can be seen instantly
  • Buttons replaced with toolbar
  • Improved appearance of the list

There also will be various bug fixes & improvements we got from your feedback, and new copyto special command, which will help you perform a quick copy of selected files to the specified folders.

Thank you for using Quick Cliq!

Quick Cliq Updated to Version 1.3.07

Hey everyone! We updated Quick Cliq last night to version 1.3.07 which includes a brand new 64 bit version for those users running Windows 64.

Here is a rundown of everything that has changed:

  • Added a new memos encryption system
  • Added an option to just show icons with a tooltip in the main menu
  • Added an option to remove all windows theme styles from Quick Cliq windows
  • Added a few new thank you’s to the about box
  • Bug Fixes:
    • S-Menus now work properly again (Did anyone notice??)
    • Numberpad hotkeys are now available
    • Global gesture button not turning off when changed
    • Clips save/restore function fixed
    • Added an error message if QC could not write to the settings file because of permissions
    • Fixed the font change in memos
    • Fixed bug where changing a memo in the On-Top viewer would not save properly
    • Many small fixes and improvements!

 

I said before that we have now a 64 bit version for our 64 bit users. If you run a 64bit machine it is highly recommended that you use this version. If you wish to make the switch, head over to the Quick Cliq page and download this version. You can just replace your old Quick Cliq.exe with the new 64 bit version. Just make sure you have exited Quick Cliq first.

Aside from the new version we have some big news as well! Pavel and I have decided to make Quick Cliq open source. We are in the process of moving the source from github to source forge now but until then we have put up a download to the most current source in a zip file. So if you have been wanting to see how QC works go check it out! We do have to apologize as right now the source is not well documented but we will work on changing this. If you have any questions please let us know and we will be happy to answer them.

Stay Quick!

Quick Cliq updated to version 1.3.00!

Hey all
Good news here, we’ve been able to slowly finish the work on new Quick Cliq version 🙂
Here is the changes it brings to you:

  • A full Unicode support. For now it gives a possibility to name shortcuts with your own language, not english only. It also improves the way Clips and Memos work.
  • Few useful windows manipulation commands have been added:
    • win_tileh – Tile Windows Horizontally
      win_tilev – Tile Windows Vertically
      win_min – Minimize: All Windows
      win_unmin – Minimize: Undo
      win_togd – Toggle Desktop
      win_tasksw – Task Switcher (Vista+ only)
      win_casc – Cascade Windows

    And some of them also available through Windows menu. You can find them in System Shortcuts window under “Windows Commands” label

  • New menu for icons choosing added. It appears when you click on the icon inside main Quick Cliq window. You can define a set of custom icons by placing them in “\Data\user_icons” folder and easily access them through that menu later.
  • Two new appearance options added – one is to divide menu by columns and another is to show icons only without shortcuts labels. So now you can make your menu really compact & smart.
  • A few more changes have been added, which you can see in the changelog.

    Important!
    Make sure you are convert your encrypted memos back to the plain text before this update, since it temporarily removes “Encryption” option. It will be returned back in improved form later.
    Since unicode support added some of your shortcuts may become empty due to removed restrictions for names. You should recheck your targets and fix them if needed.

We have created a tool to fix old “menu_items.ini” (from QC version before 1.3.00) to the new format. Please use it after update.

Have fun with Quick Cliq and leave us some comments so we could know what you think 😉

Hey There

Hello, friends
Here is a few lines about how we planning to develop Quick Cliq in future:

  • Unicode – the Quick Cliq going to become fully unicode-support application which means a more people around the world can do things faster with their native language. This will also fix a few bugs and remove restrictions on shortcut names, clips and memos text.
  • Improved icons support – we made an easy way to change or use your own icons for shortcuts
  • A few options added to change menu appearance – now you will be able to divide menu by columns or show icons without text
  • We know that Quick Cliq interface looking a bit rude and some people may not use it just because of that. We going to fix this
  • Different languages support
  • We are working on improving the Help section, which is, you know, looking quite old now
  • More videos about how to use Quick Cliq should appear soon

Stay Quick! 🙂

Quick Cliq updated to version 1.2.05!

Well, we rolled out another update last night to version 1.2.05.

There were a few issues that were fixed and some really cool new features that were added including the ability to have custom hot keys for menu items! We also created a feature that allows you to use keywords inside of Memos and Clips that will represent the date or time (You will find some syntax help in the memo edit window and the clips viewer). You can now save your clips when you exit Quick Cliq to have them loaded in the clip on the next start up and you can change the hot key modifiers for the clip’s copy, paste, and append functions.

Here is the full change log:

New: Custom Hotkeys feature added, allowing you to define hotkey for any shortcut/menu.
New: “CHK” special shortcut command added, which opens the list of all custom hotkeys you defined (you can also access this window through “Settings” menu in main window).
New: Added “Autosave” option for target field. Availble through “Settings” menu in main window
New: Added “Light-Style menu” option which removes all colors/icons from menu. Available on “Additional” tab in options
New: Any folder shortcut target with “^” symbol at the end now works as fast folder switch for active window. So now you can define hotkey for this type of shortcut.


Fix: GDI leak fixed
Fix: Few improvments to fast folder switching so it now works better
Fix: Fixed bug when right mouse button starts working as gesture button after main Quick Cliq window closing
Fix: Changed the way main window opening, so it’s now more obvious what Quick Cliq is doing when idle for a long time


Change: “Default colors” options moved to “Settings” menu
Clips New: Added option to define hotkey modifiers for copy, append, paste clip commands
Clips New: “Remove extra lines” edit option added
Clips New: Added option to save clips on Quick Cliq exit and restore them on start
Recent New: Added option to log recently used shortcuts
Recent Fix: Fixed huge amount of page faults when “Log closed folders” option enabled

New: Date and Time syntax added for Clips and Memos
