    Allow "Bookmarks only" as default in Settings.

    Allow "Bookmarks only" as default in Settings.

    For those of us who are here to search bookmarks rather than history this would save us a couple of clicks every single time we want to search. Wouldn't it be relatively low hanging fruit to implement too?

  • Feature: Excluding terms and domains

    Oliver Sauter · 2 · Last reply by JonB451

    Yeah! Memex now supports the ability to filter out results that contain terms you define or are from certain domains.  It's pretty straight forward and some of you surely know how to do this with Google. 

    Exclude terms:

    Type: house -garage Get: all pages containing house but not garage

    Exclude domains:

    Type: house -site:newyorker.com or house -newyorker.com  Get: all pages containing house without the ones on newyorker.com

    Exclude multiple domains:

    Type: house -site:newyorker.com -site:google.de or house -newyorker.com -google.de Get: all pages containing house without the ones on newyorker.com and google.de 

    Include domains:

    We also made some updates to the query to include domains.  To filter for specific domains you

  • Delete your backup (and start over)

    Oliver Sauter · 0 · Posted

    We are sorry this is still a bit more complicated, we have not implemented an automatic deletion and restart process yet.

    1. Delete drive backup

    1. Go to drive.google.com
    2. Click on the settings icon in the top right corner
    3. Go to 'Manage Apps'
    4. Search for 'Memex Cloud'
    5. On the right side is a settings button, pick 'Delete App Data'

    2. Delete your Last Backup Timestamp

    a) On Chrome:

    1. Type in chrome://extensions in the address field
    2. Turn the switch "Developer Mode" on in the top right corner
    3. Look for the 'Memex' card in the list
    4. Click on Background Script
    5. Chose the tab

    How do you organize your thoughts? Share your experience!

    Emmanuel Salomon · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    I'm new to memex. And I'm a little bit confuse with the possibilities to organize saved elements. Between tags, collections and bookmarks, I don't know how to save my search on the web...

    Can you share your experience? Give exemple about how you separate concerns from your job, search, hobbies, usefull and very used links...

    Thanks.

    It would be cool if the Memex icon would highlight or change color when the page has comments.

    Most of what I do at the computer (now retired) is "knowledge work." As former teacher, essayist, blogger and newspaper columnist, I browse, read, annotate, catalogue and synthesize material across a wide swath of topics in environmental and health areas. Mostly until just yesterday discovering Memex, web information had to be clumsily bookmarked or extracted—to diigo, dynamist, one note, devonthink etc.

    Now, the Internet and the browser can potentially become the center of my work—source and extracted information and inter-connections all potentially managed via Memex. I see this through what this product can become, encouraged by the active and enthusiastic development

    keyboard bindings for everything

    Grant Vesely · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    polite suggestion: add keyboard shortcuts (or at least the ability to define your own shortcuts) for all common actions - for instance, opening the Memex menu button, adding a comment to a selected piece of text, and blacklisting a page.

    i know very little about WebExtension development, but it feels like some low-hanging fruit would be the ability to save a comment using alt-enter or ctrl-enter while editing (as opposed to having to select the "save" button using the mouse cursor - which has to be moved from the center of the screen, having just been used to select a

  • Tutorial: Notes & Annotations

    Oliver Sauter · 2 · Last reply by JonB451

    Important:

    1. Annotations only work on tabs that have been opened after installing Memex 
    2. After an update of Memex, currently open tabs need to be reloaded in order to make annotations. We can't do anything about it at the moment. Its a limitation of your browsers.

    How to use: 

    1. Make sure your sidebar and tooltip is turned on. You find the switch by clicking on the small  icon in the top right corner of your browser.
    2. Highlight any piece of text, and click on the  icon.
    3. Add comment to it, and/or tags, and save the annotation
