Dynalist Companion Clipper


#1

Thanks for the new Chrome Extension! Works well and particularly useful when given a keyboard shortcut via the Chrome Extensions menu.

btw enjoy your holiday :sunglasses:


#2

Yes, it’s a nice little surprise. I presume there will be other features added, like including the URL and Page title with the selected text.

Currently I use the Copy URL Chrome extension for this, with this code:
<opml><body><outline text="[${title}](${URL})" _note="${text}" /></body></opml>

But it would be great to have it bundled in this clipper.


#3

It does this. Click on the paperclip favicon in the menu bar or use an allocated keyboard shortcut.


#4

Ah, ok sorry. Just realised you probably meant with selected text. That’s true.


#5

Yes, I presume that’s coming.


#6

Could you possibly link to the chrome extention you using? Thank you.


#7

Sure, it’s https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/copy-url%20/capojgaalppngkaagaobmigigcgnidmn?hl=en


#8

Nice tip!


#9

We plan to make item title and note have customizable format, so it suits everyone’s needs. For example, you’ll be able to specify %selected_text% (from %page_title%).

Great news, Erica. In terms of workflow, it would also be better to make it keyboard-centric, so that hitting a return key, for instance, will close the dialogue and send the link. At the moment, having to locate and click the send button does tend to disrupt the flow.


#11

That’s added already! Will be released in the next update.

We’re going to use Ctrl/Cmd+Enter for now, anticipating that there might be need to enter actual newlines in the future. Ctrl+Enter should be a fairly standard shortcut for submitting something these days.


#12

Great work! Sadly I’ve moved to Firefox for improved privacy so won’t benefit (yet)! Will there be versions for other browsers?


#13

Yes, most likely. Covering both Chrome and Firefox is our goal.


#14

Is this the Rawbytz extension that has been around for a while, or is there now an official chrome extension? (I couldn’t find anything searching the chrome store…)


#15

Official one. See blog.


#16

Thanks. Here is a direct link so others don’t have to dig for it.


#17

It’s still in beta, so it’s only accessible by direct link right now.


#18

This is very useful, thanks for this!

Is there a way yet to make it clip to the TOP of the inbox instead of the BOTTOM?


#19

Just started using it and it works great! Thanks for the great new feature. :slight_smile:

That’s a setting you can change yourself in Settings - Preferences - Inbox - Move to location :slight_smile:
