Clippings for Thunderbird 5.7.1 released!

A minor update to Clippings for Thunderbird 5.7 has been released and is available for download from the AE Creations website.

If you already have an older version of Clippings for Thunderbird installed, it will be upgraded for you if automatic extension updates are enabled. Otherwise, open Add-ons Manager (from the Thunderbird menu, click Add-ons), then right-click on the entry for Clippings in the list of installed extensions and choose Find Updates.

Please note: Clippings for Thunderbird is not available from Thunderbird Add-ons.

What's New
  • Displays a message when Thunderbird starts up about Clippings not being compatible with Thunderbird 78

Things You Should Know About
  • Clippings 5.7 is compatible with Thunderbird 68. It is not compatible with Thunderbird 60. Users of Thunderbird 60 should install Clippings for Thunderbird 5.6, available from the AE Creations website.
  • It is not possible to rearrange clippings and folders in Clippings Manager by drag and drop in the clippings tree. Instead, use the Move toolbar button to select a folder to move or copy to, or right-click and select the Cut, Copy and Paste menu options. To rearrange items within a folder, select the folder, click the Arrange toolbar button, then in the dialog that appears, you can use drag and drop to arrange the items in the selected folder.
  • To display the extension preferences dialog, open Clippings Manager, then select Tools → Options. The Clippings preferences dialog is not accessible from Add-ons Manager.
  • If a shortcut key is assigned to a synced clipping, and the shortcut key assignment conflicts with another clipping, the synced clipping will lose its assigned key in favor of the other clipping.

Not Compatible With Thunderbird 78

Current users who want to continue using Clippings for Thunderbird should consider staying on Thunderbird 68.   For more information, read this blog post.
