Title: TECHNIQUES FOR ENHANCED PASTEBOARD USAGE
Abstract:
Techniques are described herein for reducing the number of inputs required by a user to utilize copied/cut content to perform various operations. In various implementations, it may be determined that new content has been added to a pasteboard data structure stored in memory of a computing device. The new content may be ready to be provided as input to one or more applications in response to a paste command. The new content may be analyzed to identify attribute(s) of the new content. Additionally or alternatively, dynamic attribute(s) of a state of the computing device may be identified. In various implementations, based on the attribute(s) of the new content and/or the dynamic attribute(s), candidate action(s) may be identified that are performable using the new content as input. Output may be generated and provided that is based the candidate action(s).
