Hookmark Finder Extension

With Hookmark’s Finder extension you can access several of Hookmark’s commands by control-clicking on one or more files in the Finder. The commands are:

  • Open Hookmark Window
  • Copy Link(s) (yes, you can copy more than one link at a time)
  • Copy As Markdown Link(s) (Pro users only)
  • Hook Selected Files Together (only shown if you’ve multi-selected files)
  • Hook to Copied Link(s) (only shown if there is at least one link in the clipboard)

This youtube video demonstrates these Finder extension commands.

After installing the extension, just control-click on one or more files, and you will see Hookmark Finder commands in the popup menu.

This requires Hookmark 5.1 or a more recent version.
