Once upon a time, a user asked:
Is there any way to print the list of clips
so that one can get a birds eye
view to edit/sort/rename
There isn't a function in ClipMate to do this, but there IS a way to get the job done with the database SQL window.
Go to Config | SQL Window, and enter this query into the edit box on the top of the form:
select title from clip where del =
order by id;
Click ENTER SQL
Now you should have a list of clip titles, by age of clip, with the newest at the bottom.
You can then highlight the results, right-click, and you have a new clip, consisting of the "report" that we just ran.
There are other useful variations:
To order alphabetically:
select title from clip where del = false
order by title;
To select clips from just one collection:
First, find the collection ID:
Select ID, Title from coll
This returns the list of collections and IDs. Find the ID that you're interested in.
Then use that ID in the clip query. Let's suppose we're after the SAFE, which is ID=2:
select title from clip
where del = false
and collection_id = 2
order by title;
There you go - a list of clips from the SAFE collection, ordered by title.
You can include other columns in the query.
select title, creator, sourceurl from clip
Here is a list of useful columns
|Each clip has an ID that is sequentially generated.
|ID of the collection that this clip belongs to.
|Where did it come from?
|When did it arrive?
|Sort position within collection, if sorted by "sortkey" column.
|Original URL if copied from Internet Explorer
|Whether the title has been edited manually.
|Is the clip encrypted?
|Has it been deleted? Trashcan clips have DEL=TRUE.
|How big is it?
|When was it deleted?
|Which user inserted this clip (multi-user database)
