Research with Mindmanager and ActiveWords.

Mindmanager is my favorite choice to collect information and still maintain an overview. Lately the new research  module does a very good job on collecting information from Google, but still I prefer to gather most information by myself. Mostly because the relevance problems on search engines. This simple code cuts the marked area to the clipboard, and paste it back in a predefined mindmap, then it returns and gather the url it was copied from, and creates a hyperlink in the map. <ONLY:opera.exe><CTRL>c</CTRL><WORD:scraps><INSERT><CTRL>v</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>l</CTRL><CTRL>c</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>v</CTRL>

This link is optimized for Opera, but you could easily convert it to Internet Explorer. Code marked with blue should be customized by the current user. In Internet Explorer you could use this code to perform the magic:   <ONLY:iexplore.exe><CTRL>c</CTRL><WORD:scraps><INSERT><CTRL>v</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><F4><CTRL>c</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>v</CTRL> You can even set it up to gather to a particular mindmap, insert a title for the subtopic, and paste the selected text into a Topic Note, and set up a link to the site it was collected from. Optimized for Opera. Here goes...


<ONLY:opera.exe><CTRL>c</CTRL><WORD:ref aw><WAIT FOR WINDOW:TITLE=Mindmanage:TIMEOUT=10><INSERT><INPUTBOX:Name Topic :Topic title><CTRL>t</CTRL><CTRL>v</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>l</CTRL><CTRL>c</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>t</CTRL><CTRL>k</CTRL><CTRL>v</CTRL>
Internet Explorer
<ONLY:iexplore.exe><CTRL>c</CTRL><WORD:ref aw><WAIT FOR WINDOW:TITLE=Mindmanage:TIMEOUT=10><INSERT><INPUTBOX:Name Topic :Topic title><CTRL>t</CTRL><CTRL>v</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><F4>CTRL>c</CTRL><PREVIOUS WINDOW><CTRL>t</CTRL><CTRL>k</CTRL><CTRL>v</CTRL>
should do the trick!
Now you can easily gather whatever you want and even possibly find it again!! Gather wisely!

Remember
Remember that ActiveWords "types out" the scripts. Often a single space in the wrong place can cause the script to "misfire"
