Let me know if this isn't the right forum for this.
Like most, over time I have collected a large number of program downloads, pdf's, etc. Recently I have started "cataloging," as such, some of my new downloads, documents, etc. I have been trying out a couple of notetaking programs for this. The ones I have tried have the ability of clicking on a pasted complete filepath link and it will take you to the directory if it is a saved program or for documents load the associated program and the document.
Here are the steps I use now:
From a browser or program (Word for instance) I use the "Save as" selection, find the directory and at times sub-(or sub-sub-sub) directory to save to, leave the file name and file type as it is or change it and save. Then I have to open a file manager, drill back down through the directories to where it was saved, copy the filepath, paste to the note page I am creating and add any tags/notes. I also like this way because I can also add a screenshot to the note if I want to.
I'm trying to minimize the steps a little.
After doing the "Save as" I'd like to not have to go back through and find the saved file with a file manager to get a copy of the complete file path to paste to the note page. Here's what I'm wondering... Is there a way to also send a copy of the complete "Save as" file path to the clipboard (or to Clipboard Help+Spell) at the same time as the file is being saved? I could then just bring up the clipboard (or CH+S), paste it to the note and add whichever extra is needed for the program to recognize it as a link.
I have searched through the forums here and on some other sites but haven't found anything similar discussed.
