Tuesday Tip: Bookmarklet Shortcuts

If you are using our brand new ‘Clip to DEVONthink’ bookmarklet, you may find it useful to know that you can activate bookmarks in Safari’s bookmark bar with Command plus a number. So if ‘Clip to DEVONthink’ is your fourth bookmark from the left, you can activate it with Command-4.

PS: Check out the new design of the ‘Clip to DEVONthink’ bookmarklet. We have also fixed a number of bugs and glitches. But you don’t need to update anything on your machine, the bookmarklet is loaded anew from our server every time you call it.

    In some cases, the buttons at the bottom slide out of the bookmarklet window.
    It seems it depends on the web page which has the focus.
    Works with this URL http://www.orange.fr/ while it does not with this one http://www.macway.com/fr/path/1/stockage/26/graveur-externe.html .
    Note also that some advertising banners (see also Macway site listed above)overrides part of the bookmarklet (e.g. the X to quit the bookmarklet). As the bookmarklet is fixed in the screen, it comes to be difficult to use it.
    And (sorry for that), I do not like so much the dark transparency of this new version.
    That’s all at that moment (small grin).

    Thank you for your comments! I’ve just tried, in both Safari 4 and Firefox, and it looked good in both of them. And there is little that can be done against advertising banners popping up when they’re using the same layer technique.

    Thank you for your answer.
    I think I have found the cause of the displacement of the buttons. Actually, my browser (Safari 4) is set with “never use font size smaller than 12” and this font size is too big for the bookmarklet window, which induces the sliding of the buttons out from it.
    Up to the font size 11, works fine but beyond, the bookmarklet content exceeds the fixed size of the bookmarklet frame.
    My small contribution to these small glitches.
