Include text areas & inputs [type="text"] Rated 5 out of 5 stars

●I'd like to save text area's content. And searchbar & urlbar content too.
●And auto-save specific content (e.g. search bar contents, the content of a specific text area)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.6.3.1-signed). 

Sure, inputs [type="text"] will be in next major release.

Why is this add-on spamming my cookie manager with a fake cookie called "highlightedtexttofile-at-bobbyrne01-dot-org" at every browser startup?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.5.1-signed). 

This is now fixed in v2.5.2.
Thanks for pointing this out

Perfect 2.4.6 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Running as promoted, all options clear and quick to set up to yr preference. One of a kind, save snippets as you surf with a single click incl url. Most important - excellent support.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.6.1-signed). 

Glad you like the addon :)

"Widget" disappears Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The "show widget" setting is not preserved after a full exit and restart - the option is turned off, which is a big nuisance. It does survive a quick restart.

Later: The problem turned out to be caused by an interaction with another addon. It disappeared when the latter was upgraded.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.4.1-signed). 

Thanks for review!

Could you create a bug report here with steps to reproduce please?

Excellent facility.

A question: Text is saved to the Notepad - is it possible to have an option to save it to a Word document?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.3.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Thanks for review! There is no 'save to .doc' feature at the moment.

I used this add-on extensively until some time ago when it no longer would save the original layout of the text snippet. Could you please fix it so it retains the formatting.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.4.3.1-signed). 

Thanks for your review.
Could you file a bug here please to track the issue? Providing an example use case of the issue.
Formatting is preserved for me with v2.4.3

Feature request: changeable keyboard shortcut Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Is it possible to change the keyboard shortcut within the options of this addon ?

I use this addon only with its keyboard shortcut which is shift+F1 to automatically save selected text.

But I changed the the keyboard shortcut with help of addon "keyconfig" = http://mozilla.dorando.at/ from shift+F1 to Strg+Y:
Because when I save text from many opened tabs one finger presses "Strg" and one finger "dances" A-Y-W (= copy all - save selected text - close tab).

There seems to be a conflict between the addons keyconfig and saveTextToFile:
I still use saveTextToFile Version 1.1.4 because when I upgrade higher than Version 2.0. the keyboard shortcut dissappears form the menu inside addon "keyconfig" (cannot be seen any longer in keyconfig and cannot be changed any longer).

Therefore I stick to Version 1.1.4 because with higher Versions I cannot perform my "finger dance" A-Y-W, I "have to" use the default keyboard shortcut which is shift+F1 and which "forces" me to perform "extra finger work".

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.2.3.1-signed).  This user has 2 previous reviews of this add-on.

Thanks for the review!
In version 2.6.3 you can configure/change the shortcut :)

Excelent addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Very simple and very nice addon. Thanks.

Please, check small bugs and improve options.

For sample:

* If page tiitle include special simbols (:\? and etc.) file creating with this option failed.
For fix replace in Chrome.js this row
fileName = fileName + ".txt";
to
fileName = fileName.replace(/[\/\\|":*?<>]/g,'_') + ".txt";

* User need formatting date/time with leading zero.
Sample for fix: currentHours = (currentHours < 10 ? "0" : "") + currentHours;

* Add icon to notification:
iconURL: Data.get("images/ico.png")

* Replace string "confirmDialog" to "confirmPanel" in ConfirmPanel.html and localization files for correct localization name of this option.

Despite these comments, I'm glad to use this addon.

Big thanks for this addon.

very easy to use Rated 5 out of 5 stars

the number of user preferences is great, i have full control over how my text files are stored on my computer!
saves me time, by not having to copy text and then create a file separately to insert my text.
instead its as simple as 2 mouse clicks.
video demo is brilliant!

Very handy! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks for adding feature to customize the date format (mm/dd/yyyy .. dd/mm/yyyy)
In a future release, could the user pick where the date is inserted in file name e.g at the beginning or at the end?
Love the addon, thanks!

Awesome again!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thanks a lot for listening and fixing the problems so soon...2.1.9 fixes all the problems i was facing with the settings.....

Must have addon for saving text for offline read, better than any other high performance readers addons.....

EDIT1: 1 small suggestion, if you can add, an explaining line for the setting 'confirm settings?', some thing like - asks for setting every-time you save or something similar.

Otherwise the latest 2.1.12 version is great.......

This is great! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Have been using this for 2-3 months now, by far the quickest way to save notes for offline use later!
10-15 user preferences make this addon very customizable.
definitely 5 stars!

cannot use Rated 4 out of 5 stars

i cannot use this because the menu item no longer shows in the context menu, but i used to and it worked great when it did

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4.1-signed). 

Likely that another addon is conflicting (e.g Menu Editor)
Can you create a bug here so we can investigate the issue please?
