Pin Items

This page describes how to pin selected items in a tab so they cannot be accidentally removed or moved from current row.

Why pin items?

There are two main reasons to pin items.

If a new item is added to a list (e.g. automatically when clipboard changed), rest of the items need to move one row down, except pinned items which stay on the same row. This is useful to pin important items to the top of the list.

If a tab is full (see option “Maximum number of items in history” in “History” configuration tab), adding a new item removes old item from bottom of the list. Pinned items cannot be removed so the last unpinned item is removed instead.

Note

New items cannot be added to a tab if all its items are pinned and the tab is full.

Configuration

Note

On Windows, to enable this feature you need to install “Pinned Items” plugin.

Add menu items and keyboard shortcuts for Pin and Unpin actions.

  1. Open “Preferences” (Ctrl+P shortcut),

  2. go to “Items” tab,

  3. select “Pinned Items”,

    Add Pin and Unpin menu items
  4. click “Add Actions to Menu and Toolbar”,

  5. optionally change keyboard shortcuts for the two new menu items,

    Set Pin and Unpin shortcuts
  6. click OK to save changes.

Note

Keyboard shortcut for both menu items can be the same since at most one of the menu items is always visible.

Pinning Items

If set up correctly, when you select items, Pin action should be available in toolbar, context menu and “Item” menu.

Selecting the Pin menu item (or pressing assigned keyboard shortcut) will pin selected items to their current rows.

Pinned items will show with gray bar on the right side in the list.

Deleting pinned items won’t work, unpin the items first. Unpin action is available if an pinned item is selected.

Pinned items also will stay in same rows unless you move them with mouse or using keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+Up/Down/Home/End).
