Feature request: Create link on paste

With the imminent release of the public beta for Bear 2.0, it may be a little late in the piece for feature requests, but here goes.

When a user has highlighted a word in the note, and then pastes a link, it would be great if this would generate a link in Bear with the highlighted word being the title of the link.

Slack has this feature and it’s great and I find myself mistakenly attempting this, forgetting Bear does not support it.


+1 This is common behaviour in text-editors, i.e. GitHub, Slack, Notion, Day One, and WordPress.

It can be disorienting when pasting DOESN’T create a link.

This feature was also requested here:


I’ve grown so accustomed to apps allowing pasting to create links with selected text that it gets me at least once a day, despite months of daily Bear use. I’d love to see it here too :pray:

This functionality should be available in the latest builds. If you experienced some issues with it please let me know.
