chrome Clipping yourhighlights from Kindle

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I clipped highlights and notes from my books at

https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights

 

If I clip a note "by hand", I correctly get this sort of link to a Kindle locations:Read more at location 1896: kindle://book?action=open&asin=B004ZIOXKG&location=1896

When I click on the link, it launches my "Kindle for PC" program and shows the highlight in context, which is cool.

 

If I use Web Clipper with the add-on for Chrome, the link becomes instead: https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlightskindle://book?action=open&asin=B004ZIOXKG&location=1895

This link is unusable in Evernote or anywhere else: the first part of the string ""https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights" should not be there.

 

Is there a way to avoid this problem? 

 

Best

Francesco

I'm having the same problem. Copy & paste preserves the links correctly. I suspect the clipper is interpreting the kindle:// urls as relative urls and is trying to make the links work from Evernote by appending the kindle.amazon.com domain. That's a good feature for many websites, but it breaks the Kindle links.
