Firefox extension to copy plain text with URLs?
« on: March 04, 2010, 05:23:01 PM »
Please, does anyone know of a Firefox extension to copy plain text with URLs in one go?  What I mean is something like this:

Quote
Hotlinks for ICT Systems Support Level 2

   Unit 401

<http://www.pat-testing.info>Page 3
Explains the UK legislation covering the legal duty to carry out PAT testing.

<http://www.grisoft.com>Page 26
Grisoft website, from which you can download the free version of the AVG anti-virus.

when the Web page looks like the screenshot below.  The page itself is Heinemann Hotlinks - ICT Systems Support Level 2.

At present I'm using an extension that copies the marked text as HTML, then stripping it in an editor, NoteTab Pro; just wondering if it could be made more seamless.

I thought CoLT only did one at a time.  Can it cope with a whole page at once?

I use Firefox add-on "QuoteURLText" for this. The last time I looked at it, it was good for Firefox v1.5 to v3

I use Firefox add-on "QuoteURLText" for this.

I found that one when searching, but ignored it because of this text in one of the reviews:

Quote

It could only be better if it included the URLs in the selection.

I assumed that meant that if you copied a section of a page containing a number of URLs, it wouldn't include both the text and the URL itself.  Is that so?

This is what it can do:

Clip:I assumed that meant that if you copied a section of a page containing a number of URLs, it wouldn't include both the text and the URL itself.  Is that so?

It is very fast and convenient. I set up my copy to show, "Accessed, Title, Source and Clip" but that can be changed. I use this to grab clips and to save where I got them. I save them to Advanced Clipboard Manager, but any clip capture should work. I've used ClipMate and Keynote to auto-capture with good results. For capturing multiple links within Firefox, I like the Firefox add-on, "Quicknote". You can add personal notes to that too. Any questions?
