Image from store Link to Text Fragment
Description from store Update: Chrome now has a built-in feature ("Copy Link to Highlight" in the context menu) to copy text fragment links. The extension has an additional feature that allows you to also copy rich links. You can activate this feature in the options. 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. This extension is open-source (https://github.com/GoogleChromeLabs/link-to-text-fragment) and licensed under the terms of the Apache 2.0 license.

  • (2022-08-30) Juan Vale Carrasco: Funciona muy bien, es lo que estaba buscando, gracias.
  • (2022-08-21) Fernando: Muy buena, aunque a veces no funciona bien.
  • (2022-08-06) Eyal Herlin: Great extension, thanks! Suggestions for the extension's options page: 1. Show a demo of how the currently selected options will render as plain text and rich text. 2. For the "Copy as rich text plus the raw URL.": When the highlighted text includes links they show up as such when pasted as rich text but the URLs behind the links are missing (tested in Word). Would be nice to have them.
  • (2022-06-29) Work: Really great extension. It has come in handy for my work many times and look forward to seeing more improvements made.
  • (2022-05-31) Brandis Jackson: I have used this ext in the past and loved it! Just added to chrome recently and immediately I notice that it no longer highlights the specific text that is linked when you click? Kinda miss that. Aside from that particular issue, I still find it very useful for creating links in OneNote and other word processors. 5 out of 5 for 2020, 4 out of 5 until the highlight issue is resolved.
  • (2022-04-22) SCOE Goo-Tech: This works and then it doesn't. No rhyme or reason for it to work on a site once then within a few days NOT work on the same site. Make no difference on account type (EDU or Public), how much text is selected, settings in Chrome, ... Really wish it would work more than 20% of the time.
  • (2022-04-21) Valeria Loffi: Ha dejado de funcionar.
  • (2022-04-15) Sylvia Cooper: Does not work. Every link created with tihs extension simply pulls up the website as normal, and does not link to the specific part of the page. Unfortuante.
  • (2022-03-18) Katia Maceda Nava: It doesn't work, it just take you to the top of the page, so what's the point using it if doens't take you where you want and it can´t be highlighted (for security reasons). I hope you can take into account the comments and develop a better tool for different purposes.
  • (2022-03-03) Sushubh: Chrome has internal feature for this but it is disabled on a lot of websites. So, I end up keeping this enabled for cases where Chrome seems to believe the link won't work but it does using this app.
  • (2022-02-02) Christian Trunley: Literally does not work, and since I'm not techy, I can't be bothered to find out why. Pop-up blockers, website permissions, who knows. Nice try
  • (2022-01-28) Manuel Solórzano: Amazing extension, I used it a lot but, since Chrome stable version 90.0.4430.72 (2021-04-14 👉 https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/2021/04/stable-channel-update-for-desktop_14.html) is not needed anymore because it's already included in the browser ("Copy link to highlight" 👉 https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/10256233), reason why I'm uninstalling it.
  • (2022-01-16) hitesh parikh: i am using this since last three days all links are working fine in computer but facing problem with mobile phone. scenario 1. : i send the link to my WhatsApp and link is working on mobile. Scenario 2 : i pasted link on browser url of mobile its working. Scenario 3 : i put the same link in google form quiz, feedback for wrong answer its work in computer but does not work when i open from mobile. Scenario 4 : i copied the same link from Google form wrong answer feedback and past it on browser its work on Mobile.
  • (2022-01-11) Raul Rubio: Does not work. Uninstalling. Too bad. This would have made my life easier. Using a MAC by the way...
  • (2021-12-20) Steve: Doesn't work and was frustrating
  • (2021-12-12) Cengiz Cebi: It works on my PC (Windows), but not on my phone (Android). The same created long address (on Chrome) goes to the fragment on Windows, but goes to top of the page on Android (In both I use Chrome). I liked this extension but not being able to use it with my phone (whatsapp etc) is disappointing.
  • (2021-12-07) hl z: 现在微信8.0了还不能用啊
  • (2021-12-06) Pablo Matus: It last highlighted until you click or scroll down or up the page. Therefore it is useless, most people won't be able to see what you highlighted. It also does not work on a new visit.
  • (2021-12-02) eddie c: The concept is great but it has some severe limitations. It does not work on sites with popups (which is fine because popups are bad UX anyway), but it also does not work with UTM codes or at all in the mobile Safari browser. The default native browser on something like 50% of the world's devices. For this to be truly useful, it at least needs to be compatible with UTMs and the mobile Safari browser. Please make it work, devs! It's really useful.
  • (2021-11-24) Tony H: Works on Microsoft Edge, but unfortunately not on Brave browser, which is also Chromium-based. :(
  • (2021-11-22) Lockal S: You were great! But now this functionality is implemented in Chrome directly. But thanks for the time you spent, it was very useful extension!
  • (2021-11-17) fati.: With latest Chrome update no longer needed but this is a very useful extension.

  • (2021-11-04) pras: not working
  • (2021-10-28) Sergio Vazquez II: I'm confused. Isn't this the EXACT same thing that is already built-in to Chrome - "Copy link to highlight"?? 🤔

  • (2021-10-05) I Eat Life For Breakfast!: I am quite confused as to why there are 100k+ users but only around 100 reviews. Let's start off with the basics on this one. • Useful for when you need to bring someone to a specific text in an article or other form of online writing. • Can be used for finding youtube comments (at least from what I've seen) • Very fun to mess with. I enjoy bringing my friends to crazy random things on the internet with this. • Nice to use for helping students/peers when you're reviewing an essay and you need to bring them to the text. (Sometimes screenshots don't cut it). Hope this helps for anyone considering it.
  • (2021-09-02) Mike Barnett: Been using this for some months over several updates to Chrome (presently on Version 93.0.4577.63 (Official Build) (64-bit) It’s great WHEN IT WORKS - 5 star in fact, however I've only given it 2 stars because, I am continually find it vanished from the Context menu. When that happens, the ONLY fix is to remove the extension from Chrome and reinstall it. Having reinstalled, it works perfectly for some indeterminate time…a day, a week a month….then fails again. Very annoying because as I say, WHEN IT WORKS it’s a great extension. I've just emailed the Dev to ask about it.
  • (2021-08-27) Shankar Vembu Aky Alcantara: Not working for me.
  • (2021-08-08) Mario Palla: I've never come across such a useless piece of rubbish. The "developer" should seriously consider a change of career. Might I suggest pizza delivery?
  • (2021-08-02) Mario Gusman: This is excellent! Thank you!
  • (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,
