Thank you @LucCogZest – this is very useful! I did not know about the status indicator (and have now told Bartender to have the Hookmark icon remain visible in my status/menu bar)!
Have already added the trigger key to [hyper]-h, so that works a charm.
What I will now hopefully force myself to remember, is that the copy/hoot-to-new/paste are simply CMD+c/h/v – my challenge was the pause and self-doubt that always arose with my thinking “it must be some further keyboard combination/surely won’t be the same as the default” – but understanding that it can be, since the Hookmark “app” is visible after invoking it (and therefore presumably taking main focus), will help.
That all said – the reason I wrote back @ you, is to write about something I actually forgot about, but which is extremely useful to me:
I may go weeks without restarting my MBP.
Unfortunately, some of my applications (here’s looking at you, Microsoft) seem to get very crotchety when things haven’t been restarted in a while, and simply start behaving very strangely.
Unfortunately (some more) – my needing to restart, inevitably sees many different emails open in the background – some in the process of still being written, some simply open since I need to address them next, or as a type of reminder/what I need to go to next… (please don’t @ me about how inefficient that is – I know – but, well… yes).
A restart seldom, if ever, sees these emails open again. Which means I lose my place, forget what was being written, what was next, what I needed to be reminded of.
Fortunately, Hookmark to the rescue.
I invoke Hookmark with the email open, pull down Unclutter, drop in today’s date, and paste in the Hooked link.
Repeat 5/6/7 times.
Restart and open Outlook.
Pull down Unclutter, click on 5/6/7 links, and have all those “open” emails, re-opened/restored.
Thought I would share this here, since surely I’m not the only one who risks “losing” stuff, when restarting Outlook…
