Customize "copy quotation to the clipboard"? (for Scrivener use)

Serena D. shared this idea 6 months ago

I have just discovered the shortcut Ctrl + Alt + C, that allows me to copy a quotation or comment or idea to the clipboard. It is very useful for me to copy and paste into Scrivener. When I work with quotations or references though, the copy/paste is giving me too much text, since I am managing citations using bibtex keys that I manually insert in the text. Is there a way I can customize what gets copied to the clipboard using Ctrl + Alt + C?

- Basically I would like to go from this:

"What is the difference between DM making in the present and DM in the future in terms of representation? \cite{garling_cognitive_2000} (“Cognitive Mapping: Past, Present and Future,” 2000)

References

Cognitive Mapping: Past, Present and Future (1st ed.). (2000): Routledge."

- To this:

"What is the difference between DM making in the present and DM in the future in terms of representation? \cite{garling_cognitive_2000}"

Hi, Serena

This is currently not possible.

You can switch on the LaTeX support under Tools > Options > Citation. Here a set of LaTeX text editors into which you can insert quotations in the format you mention. We're planning on adding a "clipboard" option here, that simply copies the content into the Windows clipboard from which you can insert it into any application you like.

Best regards
