I’m not sure how this might work, my only context is that I’ve seen it happen before in other apps.
The idea is you paste a link, and instead of currnet behaviour where it becomes a clickable “
Scatman (ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop) Official Video HD - Scatman John - YouTube”, it would instead auto-resolve to the title of the page, something like: " Scatman (ski-ba-bop-ba-dop-bop) Official Video HD - Scatman John - YouTube"
Right now this feels a little to magical and hard to predicate for me.
Note that if you drag a URL from (at least Safari or Chrome) and drop it into your Bike outline then the page title is already used as you suggest. But I feel like if someone copies text that is also a URL then I don’t want to magically replace that text when they paste.
I personally paste web links with automatically copied web page titles by using the Keyboard Maestro macro below to:
copy URL and Title to the clipboard together (in Bike and MD formats),
from the front tab of Safari or Chrome (or various other applications)
A single keystroke (I happen to use ⌘⌥M) to copy selected items as Markdown links from a variety of browsers and other applications. This is a working draft of a group containing a main macro and a number of supporting sub-macros: A main macro...
