View Full Version : Fastest way to save websites?
I normally surf the web using Firefox. When I want to save a website in UR, I drag the urlbar icon to the UR window in the taskbar. UR then maximizes, and I can drag the item to the right place. This works great, but I find it a little slow (particularly when UR has a lot of nodes open), and I wonder if there is a faster way, which I have overlooked. (I love the Win-V shortcut for pasting into imported items from any program!).

Probably the fastest way to import data from the browser is:
1) Alt+D (select the url)
2) Ctrl+C (place the url on the clipboard)
[ or with the mouse: right-click on the url, then click Copy ]
3) Win+V (paste the url into Ultra Recall)
Alternatively, if you want to place the data at a specific location in an Info Database (without waiting on the autoscroll feature of the Data Explorer Pane), you can instead use this sequence after copying the source URL or web page:
1) Win+Z (activate the last UR Info Database displayed)
2) Ctrl+1 (activate the Data Explorer Pane)
3) navigate to the appropriate location
4) Ctrl+V (to paste the url at the selected Info Item)
Thanks! This probably falls in the 'Why didn't I think of that' category because it is so obvious. I just assumed that Win-V'ing the URL would create a new info item with the URL as the contents, but of course you had thought of this :) This works exactly as I want, I am so glad I asked the question.
(FYI: in Firefox ctrl-L selects the location bar, so the sequence becomes: ctrl-L, ctrl-C, win-V)
