Image from store Link to Text Fragment
Description from store This extension allows for easily creating a special link to the currently selected text on a page via the context menu. When opening such a special link, a compatible browser will scroll the selected text into view and highlight it. Usage instructions: • Select the text that you want to link to. • Right-click and choose "Copy Link to Selected Text" from the context menu. • If the link creation succeeded, the selected text will be briefly highlighted in yellow. • Paste your link wherever you want to share it. • 💡 Pro-tip: you can assign a keyboard shortcut to the copy action! 📖 Article: https://web.dev/text-fragments/ 🧩 Extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/link-to-text-fragment/pbcodcjpfjdpcineamnnmbkkmkdpajjg 🎬 Demo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5DmGqnzvBI For more information, see the Text Fragments specification (https://wicg.github.io/scroll-to-text-fragment/) where this feature is described.

  • (2021-07-16) Alpha sigma games: It was working earlier, but now it isn't...
  • (2021-06-21) SuperTRev: "Could not create a link. Select more words." Even though I had an entire paragraph selected. Completely useless.
  • (2021-06-19) Rogerio M. Souza: Excelente! Muito bem feito!
  • (2021-06-07) Alexander Tin: This has been invaluable for someone who is frequently needing to cite/share specific lines of text on otherwise gigantic pages (i.e. transcripts). However, I do wish the feedback was a little more descriptive or helpful when a link can't be created -- help me figure out how to make my selection!
  • (2021-05-21) ngcebo mtetwa: wow!!! i cant stop using these it amazing making fast money online with no predicaments
  • (2021-05-19) Dustin Brown: I used to use this and it was an amazing feature. Now it does not seem to be working at all. This was a great product so hopefully it gets fixed soon!
  • (2021-05-18) Patrick Johnston: I seem to remember this linking a (non text fragment) anchor for browsers that don't support text fragments, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore, what happened with that?
  • (2021-05-16) Dennis Bareis: Very useful but doesn't always work where you want it (inside PDF opened in browser for example) and insists on unique text (I'd be happy with first match).
  • (2021-05-12) John Ineson: Doesn't work on a lot of sites. Possibly an issue with the underlying Chrome functionality, but that's from Google too, so... (Don't tell me the problem is sites loading content asynchronously – that's what modern websites do! If you're going to create a feature like this, you have to account for that.)
  • (2021-05-05) Sanjay Kapoor: Awesome!!
  • (2021-05-05) Paul Lastname: I had dreams about such a useful and sensical application, and am glad those dreams are now real. Now I can read long .txt webpages on Gutengberg and always be able to get back to where I was reading.
  • (2021-04-20) Роман: С появлением chrome://flags/#copy-link-to-text расширение больше не нужно
  • (2021-04-13) John Warde: Really great time saver!!! Being able to shift the viewport of the browser and highlight text can shorten and strengthen your message. No more TLDR; 😁 Would have given 5 stars if the highlight wasn't lost when you reload the same URL. Maybe this is not the extension's fault and is a Chrome issue?
  • (2021-04-01) Jeffrey Pond: Does it only work if the URL is opened with chrome? Or does it work with firefox, safari, edge, etc... too?
  • (2021-03-29) Sadik Al Jarif: not working
  • (2021-03-25) Andy Adams: This extension is in my top 5! I consistently share resources with colleagues which can be multiple pages down on a website. This tool allows me to get them directly to the information. It's a great tool for teachers and students too.
  • (2021-03-17) Praveen Kumar BK: Hi Steiner, The extension is NxtGen no doubt, it works on recent Chrome browser. I checked the info on web.dev but, how do I use this feature on WordPress or any other CMS? I mean, if i click a search result on Google SERP, i am able to see this feature with websites, that have implemented it in real-time for Google indexing. How does this work with Google SERP? After installing this extension, i am able to generate URLs for a given web page which can be shared across but, how to make it available for search results? I have been looking for this info for long now, could you please help Thanks,
  • (2021-03-02) 欧阳效柱: 很好用,不过好像不支持微信,我稍后再看一下
  • (2021-02-24) Jennifer McNeil: Brilliant idea, but the link only seems to work in Chrome and even in Chrome, it doesn't entirely work. When I use the link in Chrome, it takes me to the right page and section, but then it immediately scrolls back to the top of the page.
  • (2021-02-23) Sergio Bobillier: This extension doesn't work. It always says that it could not create a unique link even when the text fragment I am marking is unique in the page. Useless.
  • (2021-02-08) Azzam Ali: I wish it has a mode where it allows multiple paragraphs to be highlighted with a single link.
  • (2021-02-07) M D: This is brilliant. Love it
  • (2021-02-06) Tracy: I'm trying to link a student course catalog but it's tell me to select a "longer sequence of words." I've selected a lot of text but it won't detect it.
  • (2021-02-01) Ben Moore: Why does this extension include a ad tracker? It inserts a string like "ezoic-pub-ad-placeholder-115" into the generated URL.
  • (2021-01-26) Craig Falls: Doesn't work for me on a Mac. I give it two stars instead of one because it's a good idea.
  • (2021-01-25) FTV Funtime videos: This extension is REALLY helpful, but it has a major drawback for my personal workflow. The problem is that this extension (despite the fact that it is developed by Google) isn't compatible with Google Drive. I cannot highlight any content from any PDF files that are saved into Google Drive. Due to this, I am looking towards adopting alternatives such as Dropbox. I REALLY hope that compatibility with Google Drive is possible in a near future.
  • (2021-01-12) Robin Hillman: This used to work great for accessing KB articles in ServiceNow. However, since recent update to how KB articles are loaded in ServiceNow this extension no longer works :(
  • (2021-01-09) Ted Marcin: Sehr gute Idee, und gut umgesetzt !! Baravo
  • (2021-01-04) Yehuda Cohen: Only problem is that it unhighlights when you scroll
  • (2020-12-31) Дмитрий Бобров: Пока что работает, проверил на паре ресурсов типа википедии.
  • (2020-12-23) muni gajah: I like this application
  • (2020-12-16) Omar Essam: Great extension! works as expected
  • (2020-12-08) Diego Armando Diaz Cuadrado: Amazing. It's great to know something considered 'simple' yet so effective works in such a smooth way. Great extension!
  • (2020-11-18) Scott Hendison: Huge Time Saver. Love it...
  • (2020-11-16) Adan M: Copy actual text ^p link would have been a great feature/option. I have GmailThis! bookmarklet that works better than this written in JS that opens a small gmail window paste in the website title in subject line, paste text/stringI highlighted in the webpage into the body and adds the URL of the page just below it/^p^p. I love this bookmarklet so much that I use it to make notes by closing the window NOT deleting it and it's automatically saved in Drafts for later usage. Or I'll copy the "text" and URL from the body and use IT for reference. Please add Actual text copy at least as an option. Thanks!
  • (2020-10-27) Luiz Christofoletti: Very useful tool.
  • (2020-10-23) Monica Product Manager: OMG! This is a timesaver! I don't have to continue explaining "where" or "what paragraph" for information I am sharing! Thank You! 😇😍👍🏾
  • (2020-10-19) Rudy W.: I wish it worked for everybody just like it does on my computer. I mean, do my recipients have to have the extension installed as well to make the links work for them? I tried sharing different links with about 10 people this morning and it didn't work for any of them. What's the trick? I know it works on my computer, on Chrome and Edge. It also works on my cellphone with Chrome, but it won't work with anyone else??
  • (2020-10-15) Max Rempel: The highlight is unstable, clicking on the extension icon does nothing. Only after watch a video instruction I found a way to use it. The functionality is needed, but the instability of the highlight makes it unusable.
  • (2020-10-12) Avi Rosenthal: Great tool!
  • (2020-10-11) Kelvin Lopes: Gostei da extensão, cria exatamente o destaque onde precisamos da atenção no momento. Mais um recurso para eu usar no Chrome OS 🚀.
  • (2020-10-09) Sushuruth Sadagopan: This is brilliant! The extension itself, and linking to specific text. How did we live earlier without this capability?
  • (2020-10-07) Shashwat Mehta: Was trying to write a bookmarklet to do this myself. Glad Google already did it for me. Thanks Google!
  • (2020-10-05) Malachi Davis: Works just like it should. Opens right to the text linked with it highlighted!
  • (2020-10-03) Ron Au: Does exactly what it says on the tin!
  • (2020-09-18) Serge Tanguay: Does not work with Brave Browser (but works perfectly with Chrome).
  • (2020-09-17) Roy Karny: Nice. I really like it. It is small, does exactly what it needs to do and does it well.
  • (2020-09-17) I love it, works flawlessly, easy to use and efficient. One of the extensions I use a lot!
  • (2020-09-10) Tyler Carter: Lacking many essential features
  • (2020-09-09) Dan Mellem: Handy tool. Noticed that it doesn't work with existing tabs after install (even after reload), but reopening in a new tab or window would then create the links.
