The “craft” of knowledge work requires good tools for storing and manipulating information. Outliner software can be very useful for this by creating hierarchies. Of these, I recommend Dynalist, which has a dynamic and responsive development team.
One of the best features of Dynalist is the community it fosters. The developers are very responsive to their community of users and generous in enabling them to create new tools for everyone to use. In recent years, many useful tools have been developed to enhance its functions, particularly for importing information from the Internet.

But sometimes I want to copy a selection of text on the page as well. I found Copy URL+ 21 Chrome extension, which allows you to grab details of the web page into the clipboard.
The format I chose was:
IFTTT is useful for creating Dynalist items when not using the app.
This enables you to type in an item from a web page address: https://dynalist.io/api/v1/inbox/add
This enables you to create an item by voice command.
Besides the Dynalist Android app, there are others that help with item entry.

This is a wonderful app that enables quick entry, creation of widgets and voice entry items.
Reflecting their useful Evernote app, Everwrite, this helps with entry to Dynalist and provides templates for items.
