Copy page title or selected text as a pasteable hyperlink

The purpose of this extension is to facilitate copying and pasting of text from a webpage such that the copied data includes a hyperlink to the page on which the text appears. To use this extension: 1. On the web page for which you're creating a link, select the text that you want to appear in the destination document. For a news article, this might be the article headline. If no text is selected, the page title will be used. 2. Click on the icon for this extension. A small window that says "Link copied" will pop up temporarily next to the icon. 3. Paste the text into the destination document. It should appear as a hyperlink to the webpage from which the text was copied. 4. You can also use a hot key to invoke the extension. The default is Alt-Shift-L.

Doesn't appear to work. It only copies the selected text (or page title), but doesn't include the HTML for the link.

I love it. it works perfectly. Jut the "Default" shortcut is not set by default, you have to pick one yourself.
