safari CLIPPER INSTALL HELP

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to install Clipper but a window comes up that says that clipper can access private info on websites. What the heck is this?

That's just saying that you need to give the Clipper permission to access the website you have loaded so that it can clip it. Private is perhaps a bit of an odd term, but indeed it is information that you alone chose to display (which may well be private, such as your bank statement, or it might be the New York Times). This is a generic warning presented by Safari for any extension that needs to see what website you are currently viewing.

I'm not sure if I understand what you are seeing. The clipper for Safari, when I invoke it as if to clip this very forum topic, looks like this:

However, when you launch the clipper for the very first time, you will need to enter your Evernote username and password. Once you've entered that you should see the window I have included in the link above. 

 

For more information on how to use the clipper see the following guide:

Perhaps you can post a screenshot of what you are seeing, which might help us walk you through it a bit better.

Ah, I see what's happening. You're clicking the Evernote Helper in the ​menu bar (that persistent bar at the top of your Mac's computer screen). You need to click the elephant in Safari's toolbar

Wrong Elephant:

Correct elephant:

If you do not see the correct elephant in your toolbar, you can right click anywhere on the toolbar and select "customize toolbar", and from the set of icons that appears, you can drag the Evernote Clipper elephant icon to your toolbar.

You have a 60mb upload limit each month as a free user. That means you can add 60mb of content to your Evernote account each month. 

You also have a 25mb note size limit as a free user. 

 

If you are trying to create a single note (e.g., by making a single clipping), of many, very high resolution images, then it is conceivable that you might exceed 25mb in one clip.

 

If possible it might be better to either:

1) Capture the content in multiple clippings, thus creating several notes less than 25mb, and thus staying within the limits of a free account.

2) Place the content in Evernote by some other means, such as by saving the images to your hard drive first, then adding them individually to notes.

 

Keeping in mind that if the material you are trying to clip equals 25mb, you'll be eating up nearly half of this month's upload quota. 

 

If you think you will be routinely exceeding 60mbs of content per month, and you need to add multiple high-resolution images to a single note exceeding 25mb, you may be wise to upgrade to Premium. Premium users can add up to 4gb per month, and a single note can be up to 100mb. You can get premium one month at a time, so for example, if you have a lot of information to add to Evernote initially, say at the beginning of your class, you might want a month of premium to get over that initial hurdle. You can drop down to free once the flow into Evernote slows down. Once content is in Evernote, it doesn't go away and doesn't count against your quota, so you can load 4gb in the first month, drop down to free (60mbs) and that first 4gb of content you added will still be available for you. 

 

Here is a listing of all the limits of the various subscription levels, this may help you understand what you can and cannot do with a free account:
