Clipper extension - what inputs should it have when you click its icon in browser?

  • Change the behavior: Only ask for the %title% variable. The %url% should always come from the address bar, and the markdown for Title and Note should always come from settings. You just press tab, type something, hit enter. Easy.
  • Keep current behavior: Ask user to edit the full, populated markdown. For example you prefer to select text from Title: [Super long title that goes way past the width of the field so you have to scroll drag to find the end](URL that you for some reason want to be editing) Note: [Super long title that goes way past the width of the field so you have to scroll drag to find the end](URL that you for some reason want to be editing) or whatever your default markdown may be.

I would love a third option, which is for it to send the payload to my inbox without any further action.

So clipping a web page with no selection would be a one-step process (press clipper), and clipping a selection would be a two-step process (highlight text to select, press clipper). If I want to add a note or otherwise modify what’s clipped, I can always do that later in Dynalist.

You could set a keyboard shortcut in chrome://extensions/shortcuts and “AutoHotkey” the process.

I’d love if I have something similar to Roam Highlighter … where i can actually highlight a bunch of things and then send them together as one item… or something like that.

I am currently annoyed with the fact that I can only add quotes one by one with defuses the purpose of highlighting some text as you go.

For reference: Roam Highlighter
