For me, this has been very frustrating because every time I do this procedure, the results are different.
The “normal” procedure that I use with Apple Notes, Bear and any other solution, is this the following: (assuming that I have my HTML code up in a nearby window):
Open or go to Apple Notes and navigate to the note that has all of the links listed in their entirety.
Right-click anywhere in the URL link to get the dialog.
Choose “Copy Link”
Focus to my code window, and hit cmd-V to paste the entire URL in the code.
I do this dozens of times a week.
What I’ve relayed is that when you paste the link out of Agenda it’s inconsistent in what it actually spits out. Sometimes it puts the short link and sometimes it puts the entire thing. Inside of Agenda, it always pastes the short link no matter where the link was copied from. And, if you play with it long enough, you’ll find that there is a difference, at times, betwen hitting cmd-v to paste versus right-clicking and choosing “Paste”. That should never be the case.
I finally was able to get the full textual URL into Agenda, but it wasn’t easy. What I had to do was remove the links from my source (Apple Notes) then do a straight text copy to Agenda. Even then, it only worked about half the time, with Agenda detecting that the pasted text was a link and spitting it back as a shortened snip. If it did that I just erased it and tried to paste again using the dialog Paste and it worked. It was just plain inconsistent. That’s VERY frustrating.
I invite you to explore this just using Apple Notes and Agenda and you’ll see what I mean.
I realize that what you’re going for is that the copied link is clickable. That’s fine and probably it should. I DO NOT like the implementation of this shortened link at all in ANY way. Sell it as a feature, if you want, it’s a misrepresentation of what I’m trying to copy.
The good news, I suppose, is that once I WAS able to get the URL links into Agenda properly, it’s now OK. Now, when I click “Copy Link” and try to paste that into another app, the whole thing copies just fine. Here’s what it looks like now in Agenda (which it what it SHOULD look like I believe):
