    I just came across sharedcopy.com, and while I still prefer Diigo, I'm wondering is there a way to borrow a feature from sharedcopy in which floating comments really float on your annotated pages? With sharedcopy, your floating comments remain visible on the page like a stickynote, whereas with Diigo, you have to click on the note icon to bring up your floating notes.

diigo help highlight page comment annotation URL

    Okay, I've been using Diigo a lot more, and I love it. But I need some clarity on an issue. When I visit a page, make some highlights, and then add then add comments (in the comments box) at the end of an article, I lose my annotations when the page refreshes. I have to make sure that I go to the Recent button and re-download the page in which I made the annotations. Is that how it works? If I don't re-download, then Diigo assumes it's a new page.

    I mean the non-Diigo comment box within an underlying page.
    Here's a page where I was doing that: http://skepticblog.org/2009/10/13/capitalism-a-propaganda-story/#comment-14095

    I need to test out the issue some more. Maybe I'm not waiting long enough for the highlights to appear. But it seems as if after posting in a page's comment box that the Diigo highlights don't re-download. Seems like Diigo reads it as a new page. I can go up to Recent in the Diigo toolbar and re-open that page with the highlights.

    But I'll test it out some more and get with you. Thanks

    I just wrote about this issue too. In order to get your sticky notes and highlights, you need to download the page from your library. If you go back and revisit an annotated page without linking to it from your Diigo, then I think Diigo treats the download as a new page. So what I'm doing is using the Recent button in the Diigo menubar. When clicking on articles in Recent, you're downloading the pages you commented on using Diigo.

idea: smart tags - 9 views

tag suggestion

    First, I want to say again how great Diigo is. Thanks for all the work.
    Now as for tagging, I would like to make suggestion. If it's possible, I was wondering if you could figure out a way that when I bookmark an article to a particular group or category, a few tags that I've use before for that bookmark will pop-up? It would save much time for tagging. I don't like taking my hand off of the mouse to begin typing a tag. I would like familiar tags to just pop up.

    You know, I think when I'm using Diigo in my Safari web browser, the recommend tags don't show up. But no, I'm suggesting that when you click to add a bookmark to your list or group, a set of tags get automatically filled in. For example, if I add an article to my Pro Bloggers list, the space for tags should automatically get filled with "blogging" "problogging," etc. I shouldn't have to bother filling it each time. I think tagging is great, but I'm doing it less and less because it seems redundant when you're typing the same tags or even clicking the same tags over and over.

    Recommended tags don't show up when I'm bookmarking a page. Is this because I'm using diigo on Safari?
