Link Previews are thumbnails that offer a visual peek at a webpage before you visit. They usually include the title and a prominent photo from the page. These are an alternative to simply linking text for times when a visual aid can be useful.

On Mac, iPad, and iPhone

  • Click the B/I/U button then the link button to display the link tool
  • If a link is on your clipboard, Bear will automatically place it in the tool. Otherwise you can type or paste a link
  • Click the Show Preview option, then Done
