Dragging a URL from web browser

Dragging a URL onto a view background

Drag a URL from Safari or other web browser onto a view window background to make a note whose $URL attribute is the dropped URL, and whose $ViewInBrowser to true. $URL as a key attribute.

Map adornments are considered equivalent to the view's background as possible recipients for Safari URL and text drag/drops.

Dragging a URL onto a view (as opposed to a note window) creates a new note. To ease correct setting of drop-target in Outline view if the drop is onto the right half of the note entry (i.e. where if moving a note a drop would result in a move inside the note) the result is to set $URL for the that note. The target HTML file's data - if obtainable - is used as the note's name.</p> <p>The Badge is set to 'web' and the map icon height of the is the default height for a new note's icon.</p> <p>If the URL is dragged from applications like newsreaders such as NetNewsWire, the created note's text will be set to that item's Description tag.</p> <p><b>Dragging a URL onto a note icon in a view</b></p> <p>Dragging a URL onto a note icon in a view window creates a new bookmark note, using the URL data for the title.</p> <p>Dragging a URL from Safari or other web browser onto a note icon sets the note's <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/URL.html">$URL</a> value, and adds URL to the <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/KeyAttributes.html">$KeyAttributes</a> of the note. The <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/ViewInBrowser.html">$ViewInBrowser</a> value is no longer set and remains false (i.e. the default value). In Outline and Map view, there you see a special enactment (a disappearing 'URL' caption') when making a drop onto a note.</p> <p>In Outline view, dropping onto a note icon is just that - the icon at left and not its badge or title.</p> <p><b>Dragging a URL onto a note's text</b></p> <p>Dragging a URL onto the text area of the text pane results in a web link with the anchor text in the form [URL title]+[space]+[URL]. Dragging a web link from a web page results in a Tinderbox web link with the same format, though in this case the actual URL will be the target of the source link not the page from which it was dragged.</p> <p>Dragging a URL into a text window sets the note's <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/URL.html">$URL</a> value and also adds it to the <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/KeyAttributes.html">$KeyAttributes</a> of the note (bearing in mind this breaks inheritance of that attribute). The <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/ViewInBrowser.html">$ViewInBrowser</a> is value is not affected. The result is the same as if dragging the URL onto the note's view icon.</p> <p>If the URL is dragged onto the Key Attributes <i>and</i> the drop target is a <a href="../ObjectsConcepts/Concepts/Attributes/AttributesDataTypes/URLDataType.html">$URL</a> data type attribute, then that attribute <i>rather than</i> <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList/URL.html">$URL</a> receives the dropped URL as its value.</p> <p>Dragging a text selection from a Safari page onto a note's text</p> <p>From v7.2.0, When dragging a snippet from Safari into the text pane, the URL of the original page is now stored in the destination note’s $URL. If the note already has a URL, it is not changed.</p> <p><b>Resolving the link title</b></p> <p>If the browser does not supply enough data, a drag to the text window results in the just the URL string being added to the note as text.</p> <p>If the dragged object is a bookmark (e.g. from Yojimbo), the note name will be taken from the bookmark. If the dragged object is a bare URL, Tinderbox will attempt to fetch the title from the URL and set the note name accordingly.</p> <p><b>Dragging images from Safari</b></p> <p>Dragging an image from Safari to a note window imports the referenced image as opposed to setting the URL attribute. </p> </div> <hr> <!-- Links here --> <div id="footertable"> <p id="uplink">Up: <a href="../Import.html">Import</a></p> <div id="prevnextlinks"> <p><span id="prevlink">Previous: <a href="Draggedfolderlinks.html">Dragged folder links</a> </span> <span id="nextlink">Next: <a href="DraggingAddressinfointoT.html">Dragging Address info into Tinderbox</a> </span></p> </div> <hr> <div id="footertablecookietrail"> <p class="cookietrail"><b><a href="../../index.html">A Tinderbox Reference File</a> : <a href="../Import.html">Import</a> : Dragging a URL from web browser</b></p> </div> </div> <hr> </article> <footer> <p id="qlbottom" class="quicklinks">Quicklinks: <a href="../Attributes/SystemAttributeList.html">Attributes</a> | <a href="../ActionsRules/Operators/FullOperatorList.html">Action Codes</a> | <a href="../ExportCodes/ExportCodes-FullListing.html">Export Codes</a> | <a href="../ObjectsConcepts/Concepts/Actions/Designators.html">Designators</a> | <a href="../Formatting/DateFormats.html">Date Formats</a> | <a href="../../aTbRefSiteMap.html">aTbRef Site Map</a> | <a href="http://www.acrobatfaq.com/atbref7/index/Import/DraggingaURLfromwebbrows.html">Here</a></p> <!-- End links --> <div id="translatebox5"> <div id="google_translate_element"></div> </div> <p><i>[Last updated: 2 Jul 2018, using v7.5.4]</i></p> <hr> <div> <p class="bold">Search within aTbRef7 website:</p> <script> (function() { var cx = '000400443220506600232:mndqtckldko'; var gcse = document.createElement('script'); gcse.type = 'text/javascript'; gcse.async = true; gcse.src = 'https://cse.google.com/cse.js?cx=' + cx; var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s); })(); </script> <gcse:search></gcse:search> </div> <hr> <p><a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/"><img alt="Creative Commons Licence" src="https://i.creativecommons.org/l/by-nc-sa/4.0/88x31.png" /></a></p> <p class="credits"><span xmlns:dct="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" property="dct:title">A Tinderbox Reference File (‘aTbRef’)</span> by <a xmlns:cc="http://creativecommons.org/ns#" href="http://atbref.com/" property="cc:attributionName" rel="cc:attributionURL">Mark Anderson</a> is licensed under a <a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/">Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License</a>.</p> <p class="credits">Based on a work at <a xmlns:dct="http://purl.org/dc/terms/" href="http://atbref.com/" rel="dct:source">atbref.com/</a>.</p> <p class="credits">[Also see aTbRef CC licence <a href="../AboutaTbRef/CreativeCommonsLicence.html">Attribution & Waiver</a> information]</p> <p class="credits">Made in <a href="http://www.eastgate.com/Tinderbox/index.html" title="Tinderbox from Eastgate Systems Inc." target="new">Tinderbox 7</a>.
