[GUI Plugin] Clipboard Search

This plugin offers several shortcuts to execute a Calibre search using whatever text is on the clipboard (Windows shortcut keys shown).

I mostly use it when browsing the web and spot an author or title that I want to see if I already have in Calibre. Copy the web text to the clipboard, switch focus to Calibre then hit Ctrl+S (or it's alternative).

It can also be handy when resolving duplicates within Calibre as you can select the title of the book and do Ctrl+C, Ctrl+S to execute a search on it (the Calibre built-in "Similar search" option does not include titles as an option). Likewise it can also offer a fast way to help find authors that differ in minor ways such as spaces between initials, names reversed etc.

Main Features of v1.3.0:
  • Ctrl+S - Execute a text search (no quotes around clipboard text)
  • Ctrl+Shift+S - Execute an exact text search (adds "" around clipboard text)
  • Customizable keyboard shortcuts and toolbar button default action

Special Notes:
  • Requires Calibre 0.8.18 or later.

Installation Steps:
  • Download the attached zip file and install the plugin/restart Calibre as described in the Introduction to plugins thread.
  • Note as this is primarily shortcut driven it does not *have* to be added to your toolbar/context menu to work.

Paypal Donations:
  • If you find this or any of my other plugins useful please feel free to show your appreciation. I have spent many hundreds of unpaid hours in their development and support so any encouragement for me to continue is appreciated!

v1.1 Released

A relatively minor update as it's a fairly basic plugin. You should however uninstall the previous version if you have it as I have renamed the plugin from "Search From Clipboard" to "Clipboard Search". Takes up less room on the toolbar with a shorter name!

Changes in v1.1:
  • Renamed from "Search From Clipboard" to "Clipboard Search"
  • Shortcut keys now configurable via preferences dialog
  • Added images in case user decides to add this plugin to their toolbar or context menu
  • Customize the default action when toolbar button is clicked
  • Rewritten internally to be consistent with other recent plugin updates of mine

v1.3.0 Released

Changes in this release:
  • Support centralised keyboard shortcuts introduced in Calibre 0.8.14

As with most of my plugins over the next week or two, this release is to remove any shortcut configuration that used to be hard-coded into this plugin and instead delegate it to the Preferences->Keyboard functionality in Calibre that was added recently.
