Screenshot via Web Clipper not working

Recommended Posts

When I take a screenshot using the evernote web clipper, Evernote only saves the top-left quarter of the image.

I've tried un-installing the Web Clipper, re-booting Chrome, and re-installing the Web Clipper. 

I'm using:

  • Google Chrome for Mac Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Evernote Web Clipper (downloaded 01/07/2019)

I am experiencing this issue as well on Google Chrome with Windows.  It is only when I attempt to use the annotation function though.  I experience no issue with a regular unmodified screenshot.

Me, too!

I love to do screen grabs of new words I look up - tagged with "new words" and the year. Makes for an interesting retrospective. But I don't need the rest of the irrelevant Google search - just the new word and its definition. This used to work fine. Now I get maybe the top left (? I'll pay attention next time). but certainly - not what I grabbed - just an erroneous chunk.

I uninstalled the EN GC extension, rebooted, downloaded the latest and greatest, reinstalled and - WHAM! Same dealio. No change. Very anticlimactic. And super frustrating cause that was a nice, EASY little daily edification that I won't do if I have to jerry rig a daisy chain of workarounds. I'll never find. sort, organize or revisit those clips again if not for the easy breezy EN ease.

NOTE: SOMETIMES I add a note as to why I looked the word up or its relevance to a tagged project but I only annotate about half the time - and it happens 100% of the time.

On macOS Mojave 10.14.2

Google Chrome is up to date: Version 71.0.3578.98 (Official Build) (64-bit)
P&TYia!

I am having this problem too. The ability to screenshot the portion of the webpage I want to is vital to me when I am researching. I literally scan through hundreds of pages of Newspaper article archives and clip the articles relevant to my research. But now I can't when I attempt to highlight the portion of the page I want, Evernote web clipper kicks me back to the top of the webpage and I can't move down the page to what I'm trying to clip.  How can I get this ability back? I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it keeps reverting to the latest incarnation of the app. I'm super frustrated. I have quite a bit of research stored on my Evernote account and would like to keep using it but at this point, I feel like I am wasting my money.

I just tried it and it seems to be working again for me.

Not sure what changed or why it's working again (Evernote upgrade?). 

I'm on a MacBookPro (Mojave 10.14.6) using Chrome (79.0.3945.88) as a browser at the moment.

The screenshot, annotation, remarks - everything working. YAY!

I sought the help of my son. He has explained why I am encountering the issue. Consequently, I no longer have a problem.
 
The solution (for me as least)  was as follows; when I used the clipper I was clipping only a portion of the visible screen. Therefore the clip only showed the portion I had clipped and the left the rest of the screen black. I was expecting to see the portion that I had clipped appear as a full screen clip and was flummoxed when it only showed a part of the visible screen . Once I went back to the clipper and expanded the section visible on the screen so that the portion that I was interested in occupied the entire screen the subsequent clip occupied the entire screen. Problem disappeared! Simple really.

I found it's best to negate the crop and just do a full screen capture, then in evernote not you can right click the image, "annotate this image", and then crop it successfully.

Not ideal, but it's something.

Not working again... for a couple months. ;-/

ARGH!

Now I get the spinning wheel of death when I try to do ANYthing on my Evernote Desktop. No saving even normal clips! Or tagging or sorting - anything What gives?!

Really close to just giving up on the software and trying something else. AGAIN.

No issues on my Mac (MBP, Catalina). Not with the app, not with webclipper, not with EN helper - everything works just fine.

Did you change anything ?

Try support ? They can have a look into the system dump.

Yeah, thanks PinkElephant. ;-)

It's working. Again.

I did contact support. They are great. They are looking in the log for what's causing the prob.

I did everything: checked to make sure 3rd party cookies weren't blocked and that Evernote was whitelisted; disabled AdBlocker (don't use Ghostery); reset the cookies, then cleared and refreshed the cache; uninstalled and reinstalled Evernote web clipper's Chrome Extension.  But.. you know... it's a lot to go through! LOL! Over and over!

But yeah, I do use it all day, every day, so I'd love for it to keep functioning the way it's so often seamless and useful (or figure out what causes this prob - so I can just tweak it if/when it happens again).

THANK YOU!

Yes, support can be hard to take - they are very systematic in their approach.

But sometimes it is what is needed to find the little grain of sand that stops the wheels.

Hi all, thanks for reporting this and keeping up with it. Apologies for the inconvenience.

The issue with the Clipper screenshot tool + annotation (only) where the right and bottom sides are blacked out after sending to Evernote should be fixed in the next clipper update (no eta on when to expect the release atm).

While not ideal, a possible workaround in the meantime could be to take the screenshot with Clipper (without annotation), sync it to Evernote, and then annotate the image in Evernote itself (granted, this will not work if you only use the web browser version; image annotation requires a desktop or mobile Evernote app).
