Re: why do we have to copy instead of just select

I've tried out many of the other note-grabbing programs, like SOHO
Notes and Journler and Eagle Filer. Each of them requires only that
you SELECT the text and invoke its grab command. This makes me
wonder why Yojimbo, which I prefer in every other way, requires that
we SELECT then COPY the text before we grab it. Any thoughts?


Just about every application supports copying, whereas there are many
commonly-used apps which don't support getting the selected text.

Thus, Yojimbo uses the clipboard to make collecting data as consistent and
reliable as possible.

There is an alternative way to import selected text without using the
clipboard. Yojimbo includes an Import Text service (found under the
Services menu in your current application's main menu).

I've also written a standalone service that does more or less the same
thing: http://anoved.net/2007/05/import-yojimbo-note.html The main
difference is that my service imports the text as plain text whereas
Yojimbo's service seems to retain color and style information. Mine
also opens the new note window so that you can edit the note title or
tags.

Hope these methods give you some ideas.

Jim
