Hook (App) Links Seem to crash / hang Inkdrop

Bug report

While trying out a new application, (https://hookproductivity.com/) I pasted a markdown link it can produce of a file on the filesystem. This link followed from another app will open up my text edit file that is linked to a bunch of other resources.

In Inkdrop, the screen goes blank and doesn’t recover, and as well sometimes it just full on crashes.

While investigating the problem, I opened the console, and there is no indication of an error being printed out by inkdrop


  • Platform: (macOS)
  • Platform version: (10.15.1 (19B2093))
  • App Version: (Version 4.4.1 (4.4.1))


  • Install Hook.
  • Create a “hook” to a new texteditor file from a webpage (context menu in hook)
  • focus the text edit file
  • Use the “Copy Markdown Link” option for that file
  • Paste into inkdrop note.
  • view markdown rendering of that note
  • follow that link.

Link will look something like this: Oculus Quest * simplified some of the noise…yours will look longer.

Hi James,

Thank you for reporting it.
Looks like hook: URI schema is unknown but the app should handle such schemas to open in external.

Fixed in v4.5.0. Check it out!


Going to click right now to see if it works…Perfect. Thank YOU!

Happy holidays.
