Save URL even if selection empty

Now if we press the clipping hotkey in a web browser without selecting anything, CintaNotes creates a new note but leaves the "Link" field empty. It would be great if the "Link" field would be filled with the page URL.
taking/clipping complexity:medium
Would make for a nice stand alone crossbrowser bookmarking utility.
I find myself in this situation many times a day. From the hundreds of pages google delivers for a word, I want to keep few and unfortunately I have to type the tag (my search) and copy and paste the link...
I constantly fight with this problem, and CN inserting the URL into the Link field when no text is selected would be great :)

I remind myself times when it wasn't able :P

Yeah it was quite annoying!

Great option, alex u are great!

I just ran into this restriction again after fighting with Firefox bookmarks and wishing for a simple bookmarker in CN.  With nothing selected, I get just the title.  I can select the URL and get it copied into the body of the note, but still not into the Link field.  I know the complexity of this feature is listed as medium (I'd call it a bugfix) - still, eight years to ponder its complexity should be enough :-).
