Is there an easy way to insert text at the top of a note created via Web Clipper?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to be able to add a simple comment or note to myself at the top of web pages I've added to EN via the Web Clipper.

If I remember when clipping, I can add a comment, which appears before the clip of the web page, but I can't find an easy way for when I forget. I usually delete the note and do it again, but I'm hoping there's a better way.

If this was a webpage editor I'd click the <> button which would show me the html/txt version, allowing me to insert some lines of plain text. Is there a way to do something like this with an EN Note?

Thanks!

Roland

If you use code block formatting, your comment doesn't get mixed in with the clipping

On my Mac, I can flip over to the "content.enml" file and do direct text edits.
On Windows, edits can be done via a .enex export/import.

Thanks, but most websites have some sort of header, and the block code box appears right in the middle of it, not before.

If I could find a way to insert something BEFORE the first thing in the note, that would probably do it, but you're already positioned in the web page's html

Thanks :(

I guess for now I'll just delete and start over with something inserted via "add remark." 

Thanks for the suggestion.

If I forget to add a comment,  I'll usually add it to a new note with the same title and then merge the two (on a desktop).
