  • great application ff great

  • Great tool. The main feature I want is a keyboard shortcut to activate an items. I see an "Access Key" field which accepts on character, but how is it used? Thanks for the extension!

  • Excelent !

  • Brilliant for adding formatted links to blogs and forum posts. Simple, but so useful.

  • Удобно и просто.

  • Hi! I'm a Colt User and I really love the ability to Copy Link Text or Location.

    Can I make a suggestion? This should make it more intuitive to pick your menus.

    CURRENT:
    - Copy Link Text
    - Copy Link Location

    INTUITIVE:
    - Copy Link Text "Amazon.com Online Shopp..."
    - Copy Link Location "http://www.amazon.com/"


    I'd love your menus to become Intuitive as illustrated above. This eliminates misclicks among those options (I frequently misclick :-/).

    So putting a preview of what we are about to copy would be very nice!

    Thank you dude for making this plugin, and I look forward to improvements! :D

  • Спасибо!

  • I have used this addon for a long time and really like it.

  • Feature request: You could make a tweak for Wikipedia for the parens?

    ===

    Example

    Here's the url copy and pasted from the address bar:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat%27s_Eye_%281985_film%29

    Here's the url via the add-on:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat%27s_Eye_(1985_film)

    If you post the url (via the add-on) in a forum - it breaks.

    "Export Custom Formats" have not a local language setting...!!

    colt-2.6.0-fx\chrome\content\colt.js
    "Only show the menu items if we're on a link and it's not a mailto link" should have a GUI setting...!!!

  • it's a good plugin.

  • Very useful

  • Funktioniert gut. Einfache Bedienung.

  • Great work, Jonah! If possible though, please add the ability to filter for email addresses in bulk.

    Just today I found myself wishing I could copy all of the email addresses on a webpage (and nothing else but that, with a *@*.* filter maybe, or even *.*@*.*) Oh, and ideally you'd also be able to automatically append each address with a comma and a space (so that, yes, the whole lot of them could immediately be pasted into the Recipient field of a new email message).

    Oh-h-h yeah.

  • It is really useful add-on and it allows to save a lot of time. It is easy and simple. It uses zero resources not slowing a browser in any way.

  • Of the 5 that I tried, this is the only one that did what I wanted. The other extensions either copy all the links on the page (not what I wanted) or didn't copy the link text (the extension was broken). This is the extension that I wanted.

  • Однозначно полезно тем, кто общаясь в Сети, когда-нибудь передаёт ссылки в письмах или в сообщениях в IM-клиентах.
    Порадовало, что можно по-разному копировать ссылки: с текстом, в формате блога и в HTML. Удобный и простой в применении инструмент, который всегда под рукой в нужный момент!
    Автору огромное спасибо!

  • Excellent and much-needed tool; I highly recommend it. My one gripe is that I haven't figured out how to use the rich text feature; some explanation on the CoLT Custom Formats page would be nice.

    Two suggestions to make it more useful:

    1. provide the option of tagging a particular format as being intended for Link Context, Page Context, or both; and have that format only show up in the appropriate context menu.

    2. Conditional formatting. Give me the ability to delimit a portion of the format so that it only shows up if a particular variable isn't empty. For example:

    %T <%U>%[I (%I) ]%

    Everything appearing within %[I ... ]% would only get used if %I has a value; so if the link has a tooltip, that gets copied at the end in parentheses; otherwise, the format stops at the closing angle-bracket.

  • Excellent!!

    I maintain a personal wiki using TiddlyWiki. It was very frustrating to keep alternating between different tabs just to copy a link with Both URL and Title from the webpage to the wiki page.

    Found this superb firefox extension which makes the task really easy.

    I have one problem though. Normally I keep many, many interesting tabs open. Saving all the links is a tedious task esp. at the end of a browsing session. So I just save all the open tabs in a bookmark folder. It'd be a BIG help if Colt allowed me to select ALL the bookmarks and copy both title and url with a single click.

    Many Thanks for the superb extension!!

  • I was trying to contact the developer trough his contact page, but I was detected to be a spambot (lol), so I'm gona try it here.

    is it not possible not to display the add-on menu at the top, when we select some text on a page?

    If text is selected, I probably want to copy it and not access CoLT to copy page title and link.

    It's counter-intuitive that an extension is replacing the default and (in this case) more useful feature.

    Other than that, it seems to work quite nicely.

    Keep up the good work.

    But Colt doesnt write in Russian, and instead of - Все фотографии здесь, I got - abracadabra!"

    That actually is very funny. It's been a while since I got such a laughter.

    This is without any maliciousness, et cetera, towards kab1, for I definitely mean no disrespect. It's just it's innocently funny.

    And, I give a 4 of 5 ranking for now, only due to not having tried this extension. It'll shortly be installed.

  • I want to use text like this:
    • Все фотографии здесь:
    %T

    But Colt doesnt write in Russian, and instead of - Все фотографии здесь, I got - abracadabra!

    Developer response

    This will be fixed in the next release. Thanks for reporting this problem!

  • Thank you for this essential time-saver, the maxVersion bump worked a treat. Any plans for a Chrome version?
