jsrnephdoc 4 Posted November 26, 2014 Share Posted November 26, 2014 I have no idea whose bug this is (Chrome browser, Mac OS, Evernote, Evernote Web Clipper, etc. I'm trying to develop a workflow that will allow me to bring pdf articles from the medical journals to which I subscribe into Evernote, to make searching them easier. One of them, Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, by default displays article pdfs (selected by clicking it's link in the table of contents on the web) in a pane of the website window. It's possible to click again to view the article as a pdf that fills the entire webpage. In the Yosemite Safari browser, activating the EN Web Clipper when the article is displayed in a pane of the browser window brings in the article's title as the note title, but none of the article itself is transferred to Evernote. Here's the article title: β-Blockers in Dialysis Patients: A Nephrocardiology Perspective Activating the EN Web Clipper in Safari with the article displayed as a full-page pdf (instructing the clipper to import the pdf) brings in a note containing an iconic placeholder for the pdf: Unfortunately, the pdf file itself is damaged and cannot be opened, either within the Evernote app on the Mac or from the Finder if the file is saved from Evernote to the Finder. Yesterday, people suggested that the way to resolve this was to use a different browser (Google Chrome), noting that the EN Web Clipper (versioned as a later release) for Chrome worked better than that for Safari. So I tried that. The results were identical trying to import the pdf from the pane in Chrome (a note in Evernote titled exactly as was the article, but missing the pdf). Finally, I tried using the EN Web Clipper on the article pdf displayed as a non-paned full page. This time, the resulting "Untitled note" in Evernote contained the pdf. "Eureka!" I thought. Just use the Chrome browser. Except… Not wanting to fill up my medical literature notebook with hundreds of "Untitled note" notes, I'd decided I would simply replace the default note title with the pdf's title, and here, finally is my bug report. If, in Evernote, I copy the article title and use for the note title, it displays not with the "beta" character, but as b-Blockers in Dialysis Patients: A Nephrocardiology Perspective Is this an Adobe bug (probably not); a Chrome bug? a Mac OS bug? an Evernote bug? I have no idea, but I am concerned about the implications it will have for searching with the keyboard instead of my eyes Link to comment
