Is your Bookmarks menu overflowing with web page address? Having trouble remembering what half of them are for? By allowing you to store text and images with a web page address, iData 3 can help you keep a useful collection of thousands of web page address. You can later use iData's search and select funtions to find the pages you want.
With the click of a button or
pressing of a keystroke, iData Pro can get the title and URL
(web address) of a web page, create a new record in the current
datafile, and paste the title, URL, and contents of the
clipboard into the new record. This is useful because you can
later launch the web page by clicking the blue underlined link
in an iData Pro record. The keystroke for Grab Web Address is: command-option-G
Launch Web Address
If you click a link in iData Pro
such as http://www.robincasady.com
the system will open the web page in a new window of the default
web browser. If the browser is not running, it will launch the
browser and open the page. It will do this even if some other
browser is open.
Setting the Default Browser
The default web browser is set in the General tab of System Preferences.
Setting up iData Pro for Grabbing
See Datafile Settings - Web Address for instructions on specifying the Web Address settings.
Toggling the Paste Option
If you have enabled the paste clipboard option in the settings and want to grab a URL without pasting, there are two ways to do it.
When clicking the Grab link from Web browser toolbar button, hold down the option key. This will do the opposite of what is selected in the Datafile Settings...
