Hello,

Thank you for a great software for organizing notes!

I have found the link function over Internet as well as my local files very helpful! Do you plan to expand the function to other files than web browser's, such as MSWord file or Outlook Express? I guess this would help me a lot to organize local information very much.

I appreciate your kind attention.

Hello, thanks for your message and sorry for the delayed answer,

unfortunately there's no general way to extract the information about currently edited document from any application.
So it will be necessary to hack into the internals of each app individually, which is tedious and error-prone.
This is why I'm leaving it now just as an idea for the future.
