Our brand new Safari Web Clipper extension is now available from the Apple Extension Gallery. Get it now from Apple in the productivity category. You can also download it directly from our site.
How it works
The Web Clipper is designed to help you save all the great web pages and content that you come across on a daily basis. Whenever you see something you like (a recipe, research topic, travel destination), click on the Web Clipper in your toolbar and you’ll have the content of the page saved forever.
There are three options clipping options for the Safari Web Clipper:
Click the clipper when you’re viewing an interesting article, and the clipper will automatically highlight the body of the page. A popup will appear, which allows you to choose your destination notebook and some tags.
Highlight the parts of the page that you like, then click on the elephant. The Web Clipper will send just what you selected—text, images, link, and all— into your Evernote account. You can also do this by selecting an area of the page, right clicking, and choosing Clip selection to Evernote. This method will clip in the background without a popup.
Full page clip
Click the clipper without making a selection, then choose Full page from the clip option drop down. This will place all of the content from the page into your Evernote account. Be aware, that there’s a lot of stuff on a page that you might not want, such as navigation and styles. Take that into account before using the full page option.
Your personal best of list
Whenever you visit a site that you clip from often, you can click the Web Clipper to see a list of everything you’ve ever saved from that site. To access this Best of click on the domain name that appears at the bottom of the clipper popup.
You can also view and search through all of the notes in your Evernote account right from the clipper popup.
Things to keep in mind
There are a few items that we’re working on…
- When signing into your Evernote account, the cursor doesn’t appear. Don’t worry, it’s there. Just start typing.
- Due to changes in how Safari Extensions function, we can no longer support the clip to PDF option.
- All clips are sent to Evernote Web and then synced to your desktop and mobile devices.
We’re excited to have a native clipping experience on Safari. If you were using a Beta version of the extension, please uninstall and reinstall from the extension gallery. For those using the bookmarklet, we recommended switching to the new extension. Happy clipping!
