Bear Mac OS Share Sheet support

Is it likely that Share Sheet integration is coming any time soon for Bear? For example, being able to click the Share button in Preview so a PDF can be shared directly to Bear? This is an integral OS integration component and hopefully is on the radar?!

    Hi Dean,

    very few people requested the MacOS extension and we don't feel the necessity to do it right now. Also I think you can use Bear's service to achieve the same result.

    Hi Danilo. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Much appreciated.

    I appreciate the feedback and have just found reference to a few people requesting this in the Reddit forum so I have added my comments and reasoning to that threat just to record another interest in the feature. I hope you do eventually implement it in a future release ;-)

    In Preview (and other Apple apps) there's a way to send the file to Bear without having to locate the file in Finder. Click on the file name at the top of the Preview window, then right click on the highlighted file name, choose Services, and then select Send to Bear.

    +1 for this feature. I use Bear extensively for storing data/clipping pages - and for anything other than a browser (twitter/tweetbot, reeder/readkit/feedly) I need to use a workaround of opening it in Safari and then using the web clipper.

    Another +1 for this feature. As a developer, this is super easy to implement and offers sooo much functionality including Safari share support w/o requiring users to install a browser extension. This is low hanging fruit. Just do it.

    Another +1 please. I would use this feature extensively from a number of apps on my Mac - Newton, Notes, Ulysses, Things, Devonthink Pro Office, and others. Please can we have it :)

    Another +1 from me. You've done excellent share sheet in iOS and i'm posting links to Bear from Safari on macOS every day. It would be a lot easier with the share sheet.

    I was just trying to share from Things to Bear and was surprised to not find it in the list of available apps. Please make it happen!

    A big +1 from me also. The problem with the Safari Bear extension always prompting for permission makes this especially critical.
