Hello, is it possible to combine these two elements into one? For example take the link and apply it as a Hyperlink to the text and then remove the visible link now that its embedded as a hyperlink?

Hey James,

Welcome to the forum!   :smile:

I'm not clear on what you mean.

Jim's macro creates a markdown link. Period.

Are you wanting to create a Rich-Text-Link?


A rich-text-link sounds like what I’m looking for.

I did find this: Copy and paste webpage URL and title

…which does seem to work well for my purposes. It has a few extras I wish it didn’t have (I’m not advanced with this software or it’s coding) but it works for the most part for my purpose I suppose.

Okay, look here:

Set Clipboard to RTF Hyperlink & Plain Text MD Link

You can also search the forum for: “rich text link”.

I’ll give that a try. Thanks!

That somewhat works, however I would like it to automatically grab the title and url and merge them together without a pop up window so I can just paste the Hyperlink into a cell in OneNote. Ill have to modify it somehow. Thank you.
