(Archived) Clip text without creating a new Note in Chrome Extension


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to clip text on web pages into a note instead of creating a new note in the selected notebook every time we clip the text.

Eg: I want to clip the words or just a few sentences which makes sense in an article I read. When I clip the text (in present Chrome Extension),it shows me the notebooks to be selected in which a new note will be created for every word or sentence which is really annoying. The same thing for different articles,can't save them in same note through Google extension.

No. But there are a couple of workarounds.

1. Copy and paste into existing note via web or desktop client. Might help to pop out the target note to a new window.

2. Use Merge notes after the fact to create a single note from the clips.

I do something like this when I want to add selected comments to an article clip. e.g.

- Pop out new article clip from web client

- Edit mode for note

Then for each comment I want to append

- Select and copy <Ctrl+C> comment from source

- Click target note then

-- <Ctrl+End> to position to end of note

-- <Shift+Enter>, Click horizontal line tool,<Shift+Enter> to create separator for comment

-- <Ctrl+V> to paste copied comment

Repeat as needed. Save when done.
