"Read Later" functionality (save page without highlight)

Jon Pedersen

"I want to be able to save a page without having to highlight the page".

We realize that this is a feature that quite a few users want, and are currently contemplating the best possible scenarios, also taking into account current limitations of how Weava currently functions (see bullet point #2).

  1. Keyboard shortcut: E.g. similar to how you can disable/enable the highlighter with Alt+S (Option+S for Mac) and pin the sidebar with Alt+P (Option+P) and open/close the Weava sidebar with Alt+Shift+S (Option+Shift+S) there could be a keyboard shortcut that saves the website/pdf you are on. And keep in mind that these shortcuts are customizable in your own personal Chrome extension settings.

  2. Option on pop-up: An option to click "bookmark" (e.g., a star icon) on the highlighter pop-up. This will require you to select some text however for the pop-up to appear.

  3. Other?

This feature would be amazing and would put Weava up there with Raindrop in functionality

How pocket does it is fine I think. This would help when I find interesting sources but I don't have time to read or sort it at that moment.

I would welcome an option that would "archive" the page so that it changes in the actual web page, or deletion of the web page, would not affect what I've highlighted and noted.
