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".
Excelent addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Very simple and very nice addon. Thanks.
Please, check small bugs and improve options.
* 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";
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:
* 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.

Fantastic!! helps me save pieces of text that i need from a website, without having to open different applicationsThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.12).
Very useful and simple to use. Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Gets the job one, easy to use.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.1.12).
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 didThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4).
Likely that another addon is conflicting (e.g Menu Editor)
Can you create a bug here so we can investigate the issue please?
is working but............ Rated 3 out of 5 stars
It is working but need some work, no dialog box appear, it won't recognize the save path because the folder name is in Chinese, have to use all English, and the date format is not for US user and I can't change it, plus with that 2 slash in front (hate it), no auto generate file name by title or sq# etc..., just no customization, uninstall for now, will check back when they have a newer version, I heard the next version will have the dialog box, look forward to it, thanks for creating this useful app.
Update : Try the 2.1 version that didn't even work, show the dialog box but can't save any file at all, it couldn't save the path (in English), firefox 24
Dialog box is now implemented in v2.1.7, please re-test:
Need to investigate Chinese folder names.
Date format customization is planned to be implemented in v2.1.8

Essential Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This is one of my essential add-ons. Fabulous for research or for documenting whatever your passion is, since the Internet is so ephemeral, and that reference might be gone the next time you need it. I use it for font info, but YMMV. Developer is very responsive to suggestions.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.0.4). This user has a previous review of this add-on.
Many thanks fleisch!! Your input on this addon is very much appreciated!

This is awesome, i installed it on windows 7 using ff24 and works like a charm!!
simple and fast way to save text
It doesn't work on FF 24 [solved] Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Win 7, FF 24: no 'Save Text to File' option in context menu
EDIT: There's a conflict with 'Menu Editor'
Robert's advice: if you want to keep 'Menu Editor'
install Save Text to File v1.1.5 (turn off automatic updates) - and IT WORKS FINE, thanks!
Can you please create a bug report so we can investigate your issue?
