There are some questions I get asked a lot by customers, colleagues and people I meet at conferences. One of them is why there isn’t an easy way to copy links detected in Notes documents using LiveText to the clipboard. And I must admit that it is odd. To remedy I’ve actually developed a plugin that installs into Notes 8 to add an action item to links in Notes documents. After installing the plugin an action to the Copy Link Location to the clipboard is added to all links in the Notes client.
The plugin really highlights the power of Notes, LiveText and the plugin architecture in Notes. As you will probably recall – plugins are fun!!!
Besides that a right-click context menu is also added when right-clicking Notes documents to copy the Notes link (notes://) to the clipboard. It’s all part of the same package.
To see how to install etc. head over to my Notes 8 Utils page.

That is a fantastic idea. Nice job.
Very cool! One feature request: Add an action "Open with default browser" that uses Eclipse’s org.eclipse.swt.program.Program.launch(String url); to launch the URL in the system standard browser.
Sure but how is that different from the built-in action?
Ok, you’re right. Looks like my Mac Notes Client is configured to open the links internally – which I could change to the system browser. 🙂
