Copying hyperlinks in notes (external not other notes)


Becky M.

Idea

In the legacy version, it used to be possible to right-click on any hyperlink and get the option "copy link."  Now in version 10+, you have to highlight the surrounding text and the hyperlink, the right-click and select "copy" and then "paste" the link and delete the extra text if you are copying the link into an email for example. This is not to be confused with sharing a note or notebook, but a hyperlink for a separate website/form/etc. outside of Evernote.  I would love to have the ease of a single right-click on the hyperlink to copy the full link and then paste be included back in Version 10+.

Totally agree with this! This is one of those little details that makes a big difference in the efficiency of using the app. 

Also, not sure why, but I can't "upvote" this post. Anyone know what I'm missing? Can you only upvote certain types of posts here in the forum?

I  moved the discussion from the Issues forum to the Requests forum     
As a request, there's a user vote button at the top left corner of the discussion

I agree. The easiest sequence i've found (on windows desktop) is:

  • hover over the link text and then select edit OR right click and edit
  • <tab> (cursor moves to the link field and the entire link is automatically highlighted)
  • ctrl-C

This works for internal note links as well. The note url has a "copy url" option and it would be nice for consistency if that was also true for links  - both external websites and internal note links.

Evernote please. Just implement this. It was in previous versions. There is already an "Unlink" option when you right click anywhere on an external link, so your app already knows it's a link!!! I used this 10+ times a day in the legacy versions. It's just so simple. It's an option in Chrome, Safari, Slack, and who knows how many other apps. Please just add it
