Any way to copy/paste text from the web into EN and simultaneously automatically generate a source link?


Recommended Posts

When I'm collecting information from around the web on some topic, it would be awesome if a source link was automatically pasted along with the text so I don't have to take the additional step of doing that.  Anyone know how this can be done?

From memory if you cut and paste from the web into the legacy product that is exactly what it did. However the url became the note url so you could only do it once per note.

Alternatively you can select the text and open the webclipper. Make sure "selection" is chosen and then hit save clip. The url will become the note url. Again this is OK provided you only want one chunk of text per note. Unfortunately if you merge the notes only one of the urls is retained.

There are also external utilities (e.g. chrome plugins) that will copy text and the url to the clipboard. This sounds like a good option but I haven't tried any of them.
