Help wanted to finish a project
I wrote a small app that puts an icon in the Taskbar that when right clicked shows a pop menu with choices of items to be placed on the clipboard. It's a first cut and needs some work. For example, an editor to allow changing the items in the list. Right now the .ini list is manually maintained.
The title should come from the list vs being hardcoded.
If anyone's interested, I'll post a zip of the source. There are very old classes I'm using that could be updated to use the modern versions. I'm definitely a "if it's not broken" type.

Uhm, Norm, you didn't export the source files.

No, I was fishing for volunteers. Are you willing? If so, I'll gather up the source.

Yep, go ahead. I'll PM my email address.

Here's a zip with the source.

First thing I'd like to change is getting rid of the ini file and using Preferences. ok?

No problem. I used an ini file so I could edit the choices in the list. If the program has an editor, then the list of choices could be anywhere.
One consideration would be to allow the same program to load a different list of choices via a commandline option which could be defined in a shortcut on Windows. I don't know how the icon could be availabel for each different choice of list.
They might have to be external files to allow differences. Or the jar file could have a bunch of them and the editor interface would allow the user to chose which one to use.

I thought about also being able to add new items, so you would not need that.

OK, first try. without sources. I have to comment and the add feature isn't finished. Double clickable jar inside the zip.
