Better yet, keep clipping research as you come across it. Clip them with HelloClips to compile, then with a single click you copy them all from the main HelloClips overlay screen.

Finally, paste them all together with a single click, consistently formatted.

Instead of pasting, you can choose to download all your clips as a .csv file to use in your preferred database tool like Airtable, Trello, or Notion.

100% Privacy

The extension doesn't save or upload any of your information anywhere but on your computer's clipboard.

Clip quotes and any other textual background info confidently and drop it wherever you store all of your research.


1. Name each clip!
HelloClips will trigger a popup allowing you to give each clip a name before capturing them so you can better organize your research.

2. Work across numerous tabs!
If you like to open numerous tabs at once, you can move from tab to tab, clipping your research.

3. Clip unlimited content!
You can continue to clip research until you've exhausted your work, before having HelloClips paste it into your research compilation app of choice.

4. Download your clips as a .csv file!
Instead of pasting your text content, you can download your research for import into spreadsheet or database tools like Google Sheets or Airtable.

The only thing to be mindful of with HelloClips? If you close out your browser prior to pasting or downloading your content, you will lose it. So download the .csv or paste the content into your research collection tool before finishing up for your browser session!
