Re: [Zim-wiki] How to paste formatted (rich) text to Zim editor? (Feature request?)

2016-04-20 Thread JP Vossen

If you are a CLI junky:

sudo apt-get install xsel
alias gc='xsel -b'  # Get Clipboard
alias pc='xsel -bi' # Put Clipboard

Now you can do many awesome things by reading/writing the clipboard and 
using CLI tools!


Then:
alias strip='xsel -b | xsel -bi'# Strip  for Zim

You might be able to add something like that to a launcher.  Worst case 
you could write a 2 line shell script and add that to a Mint launcher. 
I personally find it easier to flip to my CLI and do it, but whatever.


FYI, I'm writing this from Thunderbird on Mint 17. :-)

That is strange, I can copy formatted text to Zim without problems, for
example when copy/paste formatted text from Zotero (the text is pasted as
unformatted text in Zim). What OS are you on (I am on Linux)?
