some things I could live with

Regular expression searching in thunderbird... may exist, but... eh? It would be nifty.

Also the ability to specify save-to folder in the actual message window (I'd like this for thunderbird as well as mail.app)

And while I'm at it, I'd love some way to save to multiple (named) copy/paste buffers in windows, the way vi does it. Hell, I'd love that for any and every OS.

Lazyweb? Spin me a dream? :)

is this different from how office xp allows multiple copy buffers?

I ... think so. At least somewhat practically. In vi, I have "a - "z and "A - "Z as buffers I can copy things into. So maybe if I could... ctrl-c followed by a character that labeled the buffer, that would be alright. and then ctrl-p followed by a character that labeled the buffer to unload it. Or number, or whatever. I don't really know how the xp thing works, for sure.

in Office 2000 and XP, Ctrl-C copies into a slot automatically. The slots appear in a window and you can select which one you want with the mouse.

I'm thinking there must be a way to access the various slots via some key combo or via vbscript in a macro. Gotta be some property, on an index of one.

Does this help you - dunno.

Well, I also don't have xp. But it theoretically could help. :) I forget--once you paste out of a slot, does it disappear? Or is there a little x to kill it, or...? :)

Hmmm... I think it stays. I'll check tomorrow at work.

Btw, this is with Win2K, but *Office* XP (works in win XP too) - its the suite, not the OS.

Hmmz.

I really want it as a global thing.

I may have to try to write something.

ew?

it is called "Office Clipboard". I can't help thinking there must be a way to fire it up without having an office app running.

I'll leave you to your devices now.
