I set CTRL+1 as paste without Line Feeds.

But, after hitting CTRL+C and then CTRL+1 nothing gets pasted.

What do you think is happening?  Using Version 3.22.

Right-clicking on the icon in the system tray after pressing
ctrl-c
I can choose
Paste Special > Remove Line Feeds BUT...
That pastes just...  the letter "v"?
Then, I can press control V again and...it does work.
But...this is pretty inefficient.
What do you think is happening?

Pasting to Word.  Pasting to Notepad the Second image process works.

Hi BILL!
Ah!  Strange thing is that...it DOES work correctly in Notepad now.
But, in Word I'm still getting that strange issue where
CTRL-`  first to pop up Ditto, then press CTRL-1 -->
the letter "v"?
I'm, sadly, guessing this has to do with all the Macros I've got in Word.
What do you think?
Sincerely,

Did you remove the old mapping for CTRL-1 in Ditto, I think you will need to do that if you want to use it for your action now.

Hi Bill,
Yep.  Had that done.
And, seems like it is not the Macros.  Just tried a Macro-less word template for Normal.
Still getting the
v
and once even
v...
Seems like Ditto is...not so user friendly!
Basically, I need a Clipboard Monitor that can - out of the box - take over CTRL + C and has a predefined paste without returns found in PDF text.  So that:

Is there one you recommend?
Thanks!

I don't use it, and it requires some "scripting" work, but you could look at Auto Hot Key (AHK).  I know Luis Diaz here on EE has been doing a lot with that, you could review some of his related recent questions, and/or reach out to him in a private message.  He's a great guy and I'm sure would share his experiences with it.

I personally don't use any "fancy" clipboard managers so can't immediately recommend an alternative.
