Close the options, and select and copy a text from the web page you want to search, click in the search engine field, right click and select Paste filtered - >4. Only the words of four charaters or more are paste in the field. You may also simply press Ctrl+Shift+B (PC) / Command+Shift+B (Mac) in the form field to paste the modified clipboard content. Example 2: Suppose I want to paste the host url address (https://dev.opera.com/) in the address bar, using any link location from this site, eg. (https://dev.opera.com/extensions/publishing-guidelines/#create). Open the Skim the clipboard option page, click on Add a row (text field) and enter the following in the table: - set name: host, - set regular expression template: (^http.?:\/\/[^\/]+)(.*$) - Regular expression modifier: gi - set keep match or substitute: $1 - Keep in clipboard: checked - Shortcut: one Click on Save all and close the option page.

Might be tricky to set it up, but if you figure this out it's exactly what I needed to optimize my workflow - specially with the shortcuts also working (I'm using now CTRL+SHIFT+X to make this special copy)

We needed this, it works great both in Opera and Chrome (even though it is differently). To configure the shortcut keys (this is not documented and hard to find) just go to: chrome://extensions/shortcuts
