When researching, I take a lot of notes in the Apple Notes app - including a lot of links for reference.
The steps I was following to add a link for reference to a note was:
- Copy the title from the page in Safari
- Paste it in to Notes
- Go back to Safari
⌘+Lto get the address bar, copy
- Back to Notes again
- Select the title and
⌘+Kto create a link, pasting the URL
Quite painful when doing 1 or 2, very frustrating when doing any more!
So I’ve finally created a little Alfred workflow to simplify this, which makes the flow like this:
- Paste in Notes
That’s it! 2 steps, and the same result: a link in Notes linking to the webpage.
If you like, you can find the workflow on Github.
Special thanks to Shane Stanley, who posted some AppleScript I used as a base.
