Paste with image and web address

  1. 3 years ago

    How do I include the copied images and web page address when I copy and paste from the internet? I assumed pasting as "html" would include the images and link to the copied web page like Onenote does. Also, any way to set the paste option to html or rtf instead of having to select paste as everytime? I have already selected "auto mark urls" in settings.

    There's no way (at the moment) to include remote images in with the pasted HTML. I can make it option in the settings as the HTML paste was an initial request from some other users who didn't want images but wanted some formatting.

    At the moment, until the feature is implemented, the way to get an image into the Document would be to RightClick+"Copy Image" from the web browser, than paste that into the Document. Or you could use the "Capture Part of Desktop" from within doogiePIM.

    Warning; Having a feature to download and include all images from a pasted HTML will result in having lots of unnecessary images in your content - such as buttons, clipart etc. This would inflate your document database size for little reason. I would say it's better to be selective, but I will implement the feature in a future version.

    Do you really need all that HTML format and images?

  3. Thanks for your reply. I only copy and paste what I need from the webpage or as a print so no extra. Most have diagrams to go along with the instructions or an image that I need to be included.
    Right now I am using Onenote and Zoot because they both include the graphics along with the web links but I have to manually link the emails, sent and received or edits that are done and then use doogiepim or EPIM to email and another program to handle edits and emails. Both doogiepim and EPIM auto-link contact emails.

  4. Is there a way to copy / paste the HTML style used in the web page? I tried 'Paste as > HTML format' option but it does not work as I expected. I tried the same thing in MyInfo and it works and I copied from MyInfo and pasted in doogiePIM and it works!

    I can try to improve the HTML paste as best as I can, but it won't be exactly the same result due to how the format of rich text is handled in doogiePIM to that of a browser.

    Perhaps a web-to-pdf or htm capture/edit/annotate tool, or the ability to keep whatever parts of the page we want & delete the rest is asking a lot, but I know I would get a lot of use out of it.

    Web to pdf seems almost commonplace, nowadays. Many apps & browser extensions for this are available, but I prefer to keep my related information in DoogiePIM, where I have the most functional options available for my needs.

    I'll try pasting or exporting from one of these apps into documents & see what happens.
