Step 1: Invoking QuickPaste

Bring up ClipMate, either by clicking on the drop-down arrow of the ClipBar, by clicking on an open ClipMate Window, using the "show ClipMate" hotkey: Ctrl+Alt+C or by clicking on the System Tray Icon.  Note the "target application" listed in the QuickPaste Toolbar, to ensure that it is the application where you will be pasting the data. If not, then click into the intended target, and re-activate ClipMate

Alternately - use the Legacy QuickPaste Hotkey:  Press the hotkey (Ctrl+Shift+Q by default), from within the target application.

Step 2: Select a Clip

Scroll down with the arrow key, or use the mouse to pick a clip.

Step 3: Send the Clip to the target.

Press ENTER or double-click the mouse to send the clip to the target application.  Depending on the state of the "goback" button, focus may remain in the target, or it may return to ClipMate.

Step 4: Fine Tuning

The Auto-Targeting works well, but sometimes needs to be "trained" to distinguish good and bad targets.  There is a section of the options dialog where you can fine-tune the targeting.

That's It!

That is the basic functionality of QuickPaste.  Bring it up with the hot key, arrow down to the clip you want, and press ENTER.  Zoom - it's right where you were working, and your hands don't have to leave the keyboard.

But wait, there's more! See:Advanced QuickPaste
