CNET Editors' review

Quick TextPaste allows pasting pre-defined text and running programs and commands via assigned keyboard shortcuts. Although this program is fast, easy to install, and has a small footprint, there is no discernible user help to learn how to use this program apart from a short information file.

Quick TextPaste downloads as a portable application with no need for installation. The program's interface is quite plain and might seem rather confusing for novice users. Main links are located on the upper menu, and under the Preferences pane there are three buttons for deleting, copying, and editing text and its assigned shortcut. These buttons are not as intuitive as one would expect and the Edit button doesn't seem to allow for any edits except for text. However, you can add text, assign a shortcut, add its menu text, as well as edit everything from the Add text pane. When adding text, you are limited to 4,000 characters. The program does not give the option of defining your own shortcuts. A drop-down list gives you set options, but you cannot choose anything that is not on the list to make a combination for your shortcut. By default, the application minimizes to tray if closed but you can change this via the Options button.

Even though Quick TextPaste seems to be geared to more advanced users, it can also come in handy for regular users who need a way to quickly copy/paste text or run certain programs. The program could benefit from additional and clearer instructions and a more intuitive user interface, though, to be more useful to the less experienced user.

    "Once figured out, quite handy"

    August 7, 2012  |   By bergyo1

    Version: QuickTextPaste 1.33

    Pros

    A really neat little program letting you define text, numbers, symbols, etc. to be entered by Windows key plus one you pick.

    Cons

    No instruction and not obvious how to use it. Hint: delete their samples and start all over.
    ALSO, the download added a new search engine toolbar and changed my home page even though I unchecked the box during installation. That really ticks me off CNET!

    Summary

    When you finally understand how to use this program and delete the unwanted new toolbar and home page, it's a good program. Program gets 5 stars, the download 1 star!

    Updated on Aug 14, 2012

    After a few days of using this little gem, I LOVE it! I just keep adding more and more phrases, addresses, e mails, credit card #s, etc.
