    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anybody might be able to write (or share) an Applescript that would send a PDF "printout" of the current webpage I'm viewing and then insert it into a new note Apple Notes (and ideally, could delete the local PDF once Notes has it).

    (t's exactly like if I were to save the PDF from the print dialog and then insert it into a new note - without the hassle )

    Reason: I want to see the page when I click on the note, not just a text link.

    This would also be better than Safari's version of "sharing" a page to notes because it just ends up as a text-link. I want to actually see the page I saved.


    - if it could get Notes to include a preview in the sidebar (like it currently does for images in notes). I suppose it would involve saving the pdf as an image and then deleting the image once Notes has it.

    - if it could change the Note title to the page's meta description

    - if the note could also include the URL of the page

    might be easier to just take a screen shot to clip board - (press Key - cmd + ctl + shift and 4 ) then just paste into your note.
