Quick Cliq interface

I love Quick Cliq and wouldn’t be without it now but I feel it could be improved a couple of areas. A single mouse click in the command line box to add an entry, with it automatically saving when leaving that box, would be an improvement. Another big time saver would be the ability to easily bookmark a webpage. A ‘bookmark in quick cliq’ option in the context menu would be handy and if it isn’t too much too ask, suggest the favicon.ico for that url when available.

Otherwise brilliant.

    Hey, Pete
    i think Quick Cliq already has all you mentioned except bookmarking:
    1. You can add a new command to the shortcut by double clicking on empty place inside box ( btw, double click on command to edit it )
    2. If you have “autosave” option enabled, all editing you do on command will be saved automatically

There seems to be a problem with parts 1 and 3 of my main QC window.
Some icons there do not correspond to their “function” and some icons are “invisible”…
I have downloaded this latest version and replaced the 3 files, leaving everything else in my installation folder… Was that a mistake for some reason???

Please see my print screen:

In the past I have been using Fast Launcher (freeware) and a shareware similar to FL until recently I began to use Quick Cliq to replace the former two. So far so good but there are some small annoyance or suggestion:
1. The software supports ‘Drag and Drop’ of shortcuts but it does not always drop to the location I release the mouse button. The dropped shortcut would ‘jump’ to some unexpected location. I have to move it back to the correct location.
2. The default mouse gesture to pop up the launcher is right-click + downward motion. But this interferes with normal drag and drop of files using the right mouse button. So I change to use middle mouse button instead.
3. Some shortcuts like those of Acrobat and MS Office doesn’t work if drag to drop to QC because the contents of these shortcuts doesn’t point to the correct executable. I have to find out the exact path and add it to QC manually.
4. The current screen size is OK but option to adjust the size (larger) is welcome.

How many shortcuts does it take to slow down the “Building Menu, Please Wait…”?
I have 40 top level shortcuts, including 8 submenus.

In total, the submenus hold 82 shortcuts. So, I have 114 shortcuts and 8 submenus.

I think one of the submenus got copied into another one – or maybe because I keep clicking on the system tray instead of waiting for the menu to show up.

Cheers,

Mitch

hi, Mitchell
it should be faster enough to build such menu
it may be slow in case when menu is rebuilding after the long time PC was idle because of many file-reading operations. This issue will be solved in next 1.4 version, which i plan to release in a month..
Sure, it may also take some time if you have very very old PC and very very slow hard disk 🙂
Anyway – don’t care about how many items menu can hold without loosing in performance, – it is a big enough.

    Thanks, Pavel. I’m running a fairly new laptop, so maybe I should just be more patient. 🙂

    Cheers,

Am having 2 problems with QuickCliq_(2.0.0b1)__x64
1. Hovering over some but not all Folder Menu items causes QC to crash. The crash makes the mouse cursor go crazy and it’s tough to shut down QC. My best guess is that it has to do with something in the folder specified by the Folder Menu. QC ver 1 has no problems with Folder Menus specifying the folders that ver 2 crashes on.

2. I use AutoHotkey to have a trackball button send win-z. It works with QC ver 1.37 but not ver 2. I get a beep with ver 2. The operable line is:

XButton1::send #z

With ver 1, it needs lower case “z” to work properly. With ver 2 neither upper nor lower case “z” works.

    Hi,
    1. Can you tell on which items exactly QC crashes in folder menu? Is it always the same items?
    2. It’s strange it worked earlier, because you actually using the same hotkey and one of them should not work. It is best to just change win+z to something else
