Is it possible to copy an item’s text without entering edit mode?
I hope I’m right, but I didn’t find any other way to do it (unless selecting the words with the mouse / copy, but it’s faster to edit / copy).
I’m not aware of something like crtl+c, but you can export (ex).
Probably just in time, please take a look at the coming new RTF export: Export to Rich Text
I’ll certainly use the new RTF export feature to get lists into Google Docs but in this case I’m looking for a quick way to grab the text of a single list item. Not a big deal, I was just hoping there was a way faster than ee + Control+C + Esc.
I totally agree. I am constantly wanting to be able to share a chunk of items with other people over iMessage, Email or Slack. You would think that highlighting a set of items and then
CTRL + C or
CMD + C would copy the text of the item to your clipboard in a simple text format but no luck .
Absolutely LOVE checkvist. This would make it perfect for me.
Speaking of implementation
- should subnodes be copied as well or it should depend on whether the node is collapsed?
- if multiple selection is used, should the copied nodes be prefixed with ‘-’?
- should Markdown styling be processed or original text (from ‘ee’) should be copied?
Good question. I think all subnodes should be copied - that is what a typical user would expect.
I think so, yes.
I vote for original text (raw markdown) because I think most users would benefit from being able to paste that text somewhere else (which might support markdown). Like in a discourse post or in slack, or on stack overflow, etc.
Depends on if node is collapsed.
Other two questions: I don’t have a strong opinion but both sound like good ideas.
It should depend on whether the node is collapsed.
An option / preference?
Thanks for the feedback. You may test how Ctrl+C now works on https://beta.checkvist.com
When you use Chrome, you may expect RTF copy when you paste into a RTF-capeable editor
Other browsers copy only plain indented text.
Expand/collapse is respected. Second and further levels are prefixed with ‘-’
The implementation is not very polished, if you notice something painful, please let me know.
First few tests of this and I am getting exactly what I had hoped for. Thank you!!!
Nice job! I like that the default action on pressing Enter is to copy to Clipboard.
