Hi Dmitry you should move this content from the Folded part in description step 1 Open backnote window on CTRL+SHIFT+V hotkeys* step 2 Highlight a text with a mouse and release button to copy it to a backnote window I believe most people like me, do not know how to use this plugin, since above part was hidden in the description.
