INFO

Please note this is not a full integration. You will need to copy markdown to Capacities and your notes will need some formatting when brought into Capacities. We're in contact with the developer and a Capacities integration is on the roadmap.

Copy Highlights out of Web Highlights

Click the three dots in the top right of your highlighting window and click "copy Markdown". This saves the highlights, tags and notes. You will also get thet title, a description and the url of the page you highlighted when you paste it into Capacities.

Adding Highlights to Capacities

You can paste the highlights you have just copied into any object, so you can either create a new page and paste, or open an existing object and paste.

You will need to format this object a little to give it a title at least.

Unformatted

Alternatively, save the webpage as a weblink first and then copy the highlights in. Then you can delete the extra information you don't need, just keeping your highlights and tags.
