In order to get around the problem of Scrivener changing my window size when importing web pages (when “convert to text” remains unchecked) [url]https://forum.literatureandlatte.com/t/long-url-on-web-page-import/12751/1], I am now importing all my web research with “convert to text” checked.
Things are now much better. Window size does not change and I can edit the resulting text document and take out things I don’t need. Very cool.
However, I do add one thing now to all my web page -> text imports. I add a link at the bottom that will take me back to the original web page. Very handy.
It would be nice if there was a suboption added to “Convert HTML files to text” that allowed “Add Web page URL link at”, and then a subsuboption of two radio buttons for “Top” and “Bottom”.
Or nirvana would be to simply support “Open -> Original URL in Browser” for such text documents. I say “simply” only from the end user perspective. I understand that this might actually be harder since text documents don’t currently have such metadata associated with them. But it shouldn’t be that hard to add, correct?
