if I am capturing a webpage for a topic that I am researching I like to have it in the same program as the rest of my research notes.
This is a very valid point, and I've suffered in the past from having to have information scattered across several applications. I still like to use LWA to locally archive things that really matter to me.
BTW, the Firefox extension Scrapbook captures webpages as well as Local Website Archive IMO. If RightNote cannot capture a page - which occurs a bit more than I expected - I just capture it with Scrapbook, click the notification link to open the page in another tab, and then use RightNote to capture the Scrapbook page. This is especially handy when the webpage is a receipt or anything else that requires a secure login. Most programs have difficulty logging in and capturing such pages while Scrapbook scrapes them up perfectly.
Nifty! I suppose I'll have to look at Scrapbook
On the occasions where RN hasn't captured a page because it's a secure login, I've used the clipboard method, i.e., mark the area I want in the usual way, then Clip to New Note:
and Clip to Current Note:
as appropriate. You don't even need to press Ctrl+C, just whatever RN hotkeys you've defined. I don't know whether this gives a more accurate rendition than your method, but it's been good enough for me so far. It's also worth noting that Martin Aignesberger's flagship program WebSite-Watcher
can itself log in to web sites, and can also pass pages to Local Website Archive. I haven't tried this myself but it's in Help for my 2010 (10.5) Business Edition, and certainly RoboForm
treats WSW like a browser. Maybe similar functionality might be considered for a future iteration of RN, though it rather depends on how much Rael wants to make it a web-capture specialist.
