Paste a URL and have it "auto-resolve" to the webpage title

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)
