Right now, if I create a hook link from Zotero and, say, paste that into Textedit, it creates an hyperlink pointing to the Zotero item showing the item title (title of the paper, book, etc.)
For instance, creating a hook with
Abbas, M., Lipiński, W. P., Nakashima, K. K., Huck, W. T. S., & Spruijt, E. (2021). A short peptide synthon for liquid–liquid phase separation. Nature Chemistry, 1–9. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41557-021-00788-x
and pasting the hook link leaves us with the text
A short peptide synthon for liquid–liquid phase separation.
I think it could be quite useful to be able to paste in the (author,date) format — widely used both in humanities and various STEM fields.
Use case: inserting (author,date) references to Obsidian. Currently, I copy the (author,date) text with Zotero’s native shortcuts, paste that into Obsidian, then go on to copy the hook link and paste it “over” the text in Obsidian.
