Confused by sorter “Copy Selection Hotkey” function and rules

I am trying to understand what the hotkey does and what rules it follows, assuming that I choose RTF as the format.

Sometimes it copies the highlighted section (text + images) of a web page, sometimes not (in Vivaldi it is unreliable). Sometimes it creates a new note, sometimes it appends the highlight to the existing note, and sometimes it copy pastes the highlighted image along with the text, and other times instead of the image, I see the name of the image with .png extension.

thank you very much


This depends completely on the used application which puts the selection on the clipboard, therefore the results should be usually identical to using Cmd-C in the application, switching to DEVONthink and using Cmd-N (Data > New > With Clipboard).

All clear now. Thank you Christian
