It takes at least 4 clicks to get the PMID for a paper:
- Click “…”
- Click “Edit data”
- Look for the PMID field, double-click the PMID, Cmd+C to copy
- Click “Cancel”
This might not sound like an important complaint. However, you might consider that repetitive strain injury is a real thing that some of us are actually living with.
Can we do better? I think so. I got it down to just 2 clicks:
- Right-click the PMID
- Click “Copy”
How? My userscript pulls out the PMID from each paper and displays it in a clickable text element.
