Roam users may be interested to learn that you can use Hook with Roam (Roam research) as follows.
Copy Linkon a Roam page, and use anywhere.
- copy any link or simple URL, then use
Hook to Copied Linkon a Roam page.
- Hook has a handy
Copy Markdown Linkthat you can use on all linkable resources. You can paste markdown links in Roam, hit the return key, and Roam gives you a live named link.
- If you use Hook’s
Copy Linkon an object and then paste in Roam, Roam actually uses the name of the link, not the URL.
- if you paste a URL (e.g., copied from OmniFocus without Hook, or from plain text), that link will not be live, it will be plain text. So rather than using the app’s native
Copy as Link, you’re better off using Hook’s
Copy Markdown Linkto paste links into Roam if you want to be able to click them.
Above is my understanding/experience anyway. Roam is evolving fast.
