Diodon - GTK+ Clipboard Manager

New history dialog with filtering as you type

Registered by Oliver Sauder on 2011-03-19

The indicator was a good start for Diodon. However for usability reasons it would be much more desirable to have a history dialog which appears when pressing the hot key. In such a dialog there should be two ways to select an item.
1. With the arrow keys up and down as now in the indicator
2. with a filter as you type feature

Furthermore, we have to decide if such a dialog will replace the application indicator altogether or they will work side by side.

Whiteboard

It might be considered to have three different modes in such a history dialog. One for images, files and text.
For the unity integration it should be considered to implement a lens.

[sao 2011-06-02]
The idea has been brought up that a filter as you type or may be rather jump as you type feature could be added to the indicator as well.

[sao 2011-06-08]
Unity Lens is implemented and will be released with version 0.4.0. However this blueprint is not completed yet. Therefore just removing milestone, so we can come back another time.
