Thanks for reaching out!

I will add your vote for Web Clipper tool, we already have this feature request in our list.

However at the moment we have some difficulties with importing heavy formatted text with the pictures from web.
So we want to fix first our HTML to RTF parser to be able to import the web pages correctly.
After it will be done, the tool itself will be easy to develop as we have all the features needed for its functional:
- Print to Outline option to send the PFSs of the webpages to Outline;
- Send to Outline option to send the selected pieces to the app (at the moment without the pictures, but we're working on it);
- Partial support of web page formatting (that's the most difficult part of the work, the work is in progress at the moment);
- Saving the selected screen captures to the clipboard to paste them later to Outline.

Please write to me if you have questions on any of the options I mentioned.
I will help!

I've noticed that web clipping neither copy+paste and "Send to Outline" does not include the "Pasted from" with url link anymore.

I can't recall the version prior to 3.21.2(39.212.500) that this feature did work, though in current version this feature works periodically to the point of when it works I'm surprised.

Not sure what happened, though looks to be some regression occurred.
