One issue I ran into was the copy link as markdown with Ulysses since it uses brackets to signify a link so it actually doesn't store the link in the title. Any workarounds on this?


Hi Brian, On the Mac it's easy - just use a Smart Paste into Ulysses. Just ⌘⇧V in Ulysses and you'll be presented with a popup to paste in different formats including Markdown. I haven't found a solution pasting in iOS but I've logged a call with Ulysses support.

No one seems to have mentioned ClipMenu. I've been using it for years, and it's brilliant. Not quite so wide-ranging as Copied, but a real dependable workhorse. Like Don, I use Alfred quite a lot and tried their version of all this, but I find ClipMenu a better, integrated, and straightforward choice. And, as far as I recall, free.

Rules in Copied: You create a rule and select SAFARI ater clicking on the "+" . But in my case, whe I select "+" I have a different result ad don;'t access to Finder : i have the options to
-Add application rule
-add Host Name Rule
-Add regular expression rule
And none take me to Finder
How can I select an application and create a rule?
Thank you so much!
