I noticed that already Matthias, but I don’t mind, because virtually every time the website content that I wanted to save to Obsidian is picked up and placed in the .md file… I do check the contents of the note in Obsidian (I have two beautiful 27" screens, so I’ll have Obsidian note on the right screen, and the original .html on my main screen) and if there is a wee chunk or two of text on the original that I want to save, I’ll just copy/paste it into my Obsidian note. Most of the time I don’t even need to.
Thanks for the MarkDownload suggestion, it’s not as good as if I could just drag the browser tab to Obsidian and the contents would automatically get copied to the Obsidian note… but, it’s close enough, just about 3 extra clicks.
OMG! I just finished typing that last sentence and I thought… wait… why don’t I try that, click and drag a tab from my browser to an open Obsidian note on the second screen… and you know what???
It doesn’t work, BUT… if I highlight any text, and then drag that highlight onto the open Obsidian note, it copies that text into that note… no need to Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V. Now that is handy! And fast! Whoohoo!
Maybe someone might want to try that, someone who doesn’t have Markdownload installed… I wonder if it would work? Even if you don’t have 2 screens, you could have the left part of the screen as a browser window, and the other half of the screen a window with an open Obsidian note… and see if you highlighted text and dragged it to the Obsidian note, if it would automatically paste the text to the note.
Ah, likely that won’t work, no… I just tried highlighting text here and dragging it to an open notepad.exe window, and it didn’t work, so looks like highlighting text and dragging it to an Obsidian note is a feature of Markdownload.
So now you know a shortcut to using Markdownload. Much faster!
