QuickTextPaste

Editors' Review

by   / June 24, 2013

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.
