Just a question 'bout pins

I don't know if I'm supposed to leave that text below the scroll and read command... So I did.

My question is, if I'm on a website and I want to take notes, can I pin Joplin to stay on top?

Right now I highlight something to copy, paste it in Joplin, find something else to copy and when I click to highlight Joplin goes to the back. So I highlight the text, go to the taskbar to open Joplin again, paste it in, repeat.

I know I can split the window but I don't want to do that. I want the full page and my notes on top so I can easily go back and forth.

I don't know if this question goes here. If there's a better place kindly let me know for next time.

Since I'm not complaining about anything I don't think you need the version number.

Which operating System do you have? (Windows, Linux, Mac?)
Under Windows there are plenty of programs that can pin apps to the top, like Microsoft PowerToys.

If you are on Windows, Microsoft has free software called Power Tools. It has loads of good stuff. One is the ability to keep one window always on top. Works great.

I doubt Joplin could implement this since it might be different for each operating system. But I'm just guessing.

On Linux, specifically Kubuntu / KDE, right-click on the window title bar. Select "More Actions" and then "Keep Above Others". Other distros may have something similar.



For Linux Mint and Ubuntu you can right-click on the title bar and select the option "Always on Top"
