Copy text to existing note

  • Moderator

    To the Right-click context menu add posibility for copying new text to existing note.
    Not only Copy to Note. Because, if you want add mulitple texts from page to notes, than create too many new notes.

    I second this. I wonder how this would be implemented, though, without it being cumbersome.

    @taka_ I suggest "Copy to selected note". You open the notes panel, select the note you want and in the context menu you should have "Copy to selected note". If no note is selected, it shows "Copy to note".

    @taka_ I agree that it would be cumbersome to implement.

    If you want to copy text to an existing note it is very easy, without adding any complexity to the interface. If you do use this method, get into the habit of ending notes with a paragraph break.

    • Open the Notes Panel
    • Select the note to which you want to add text.
    • Select the text on the page
    • Drag and drop the text into the note

    It could hardly be made any easier to do from the select text context menu where you would have to a submenu for your notes that would have to update dynamically as notes were added.

    Then the user would still have to navigate to the relevant note and acknowledge the copy operation.

    I mean something like this (pic below), just right click, and from the context menu select one of the existing notes. Without needed to opening panel, selecting note, and dragging the text into a note.

    @cheve11e_191 I like the design, but imagine if someone has tons of notes. It might get messy
