Clipboard monitoring

Alex Jenter 8 years ago updated 5 years ago 4
This feature would create a setting in CN that will automatically copy the contents of the system clipboard into either a new note(s) or accumulate it into a single note.

Many information managers (treepad, whiz folders, treedb) now have this pasteboard feature.

This is especially true since CN doesn't capture all the available text information on a page (it copies link names, but not the link addresses).

For instance, currently if you want to collect a link name and its address, its a 2 or 3 step process, requiring you to go back and forth between CN and a web page. If you have an auto paste-board running, you would only have to copy the name of the link, and then copy the address of the link, and the information would be automatically collected into a note in the background.

This feature is also useful when you are picking and choosing what parts of an information source you want to save (skipping biographical info, advertisements, etc.) or quickly combining multiple sources (like the contents of a separate linked page).

Thanks for listening,
Mark

Thanks for the idea, JeffW! We used to have a similar suggestion, which was closed due to lack of popularity. Now merged your idea into that one (that's 3 votes for you, for free) and reopening it to give it a second chance.
