  1. Good point. It's definitely not a solution for all cases. True. Personally, I tend to shy away from screenshots in cases where the desired clipping would exceed the range of a single screenshot (although you could just take multiple screenshots) as well as in cases where OCR might be less reliable and/or cumbersome. Otherwise, they are another option as well.
  2. When using the Web Clipper to bring in content from the web, I noticed that content from certain sites was coming in in an undesirable fashion, with issues ranging from colored backgrounds to poor formatting. None of the potential solutions I read about quite fit the bill for me. And then I realized, why bother using the Web Clipper at all in these instances? Certainly, the Web Clipper offers a number of useful features, but most of those features would be available within Evernote itself as well. In these particular cases, what I decided to do was: Open up the Print window Set the Destination as "Save as PDF" Save the web page Bring the PDF into Evernote through the most desirable means Obviously, this process is a bit more time-consuming and cumbersome than simply utilizing the Web Clipper, but in cases where the latter would fail to do an adequate job it would represent a decent-enough workaround. Another possible use case for this type of workaround would be to capture web page comments that the Web Clipper would not be able to include within its clipped content. In these cases, all you would need to do is: Select/highlight the comment(s) in question Right-click Select "Print" Repeat the above steps. Hope this helps someone out there! EDIT- I'm a Windows user so the above steps are for a Windows browser, in this case Google Chrome, but the gist of it should be similar across different platforms.
  3. Fair enough, although it's still only a copy and paste action at heart. It just feels like one of those more basic features you would expect to be available.
  4. Despite the various workarounds referenced in this thread, I still think it would be worthwhile to have this option available, particularly for anyone who deals with a lot of tagged content. Having to, for instance, duplicate a note with the desired tags, wipe the note contents, and finally paste into this note the content from a desired template note could be quite the annoying process when performed many times. Other workarounds would seem to be similarly annoying, even if effective. I can't imagine such a feature being difficult to implement, even though I'm sure the Evernote team has better things to do with their time.
  5. I understand. Thank you for the information. I guess I'll have to go with one of my alternative options then.
  6. Right. I actually have something similar to this in place already, but the ability to order notes by location could still come in handy in certain instances. For instance, when traveling within a large metropolitan area like NYC, a location tag or set of tags may still be too general for my liking. Of course, I could always go deeper with my location tag(s), perhaps down to individual areas, which may help to alleviate such concerns. One of my expected use cases for location tags would be for individual food and dining, hence why I would prefer to be able to sort by location; If I'm looking for a quick bite to eat in downtown Manhattan, I may want to know the closest place I've been to versus all of the places under the relevant location tag(s). While I know I could use other services for this purpose---I've considered using Yelp Collections in order to have access to a map as well---my goal is generally to utilize as few services as possible if feasible. Any ideas why I would not be given the option to sort by location on my android device?
  7. That was what I had suspected. If that is indeed the case, so be it. It isn't a big deal in the end. My idea was simply to be able to sort notes by their location relative to the current location of the device in question, whether that be desktop or mobile. The reason I do not have the "Add location to new notes" setting currently active is because I know there will be many times when I either do not have time to or would forget to create a note at the relevant location, so I figured it best to leave location-setting to my own manual process once a day in order to minimize potential confusion. Of course, I could always change that moving forward. Worst case, I can do what I had intended to do on my desktop on my android device. However, for some reason I'm not seeing the option to sort by location on my android device (version 8.12.3). Any ideas?
  8. My apologies for not including that information originally. I'm using Evernote for Windows 6.21.2.8716. If these sorting options wouldn't work for location purposes, I'm wondering what purpose they would serve? I can't come up with any logical alternatives.
  9. I'm trying to understand the various location sort options, but haven't been able to figure them out thus far. I created a set of ten test notes, each of which contains Google Maps coordinate information from various locations around the globe. However, only the "Address" sorting option would have any effect on the order of the notes, and even then the sorting order would seemingly be random. For instance, I live in New York but was getting further international locations appearing before closer domestic ones. The other sorting options---"Location", "City, State Country" and "Country, State, City"---had no effect at all. I feel like I'm missing something obvious here but can't put my finger on it.
  10. True. My comment was entirely my own speculation based on the lack of activity on this front, and before I had read rezecib's explanation of why they have been reluctant to put significant resources towards such a feature.
  11. Would LOVE boolean search as well. I'm surprised that with this many votes already we haven't gotten anyone from Evernote to weigh in on this, although I understand such a feature would likely only be utilized by heavier users. Still, not having it available would seem to be quite the headache for a majority of us. EDIT- Apparently we did get a staff member to weigh in back in 2018, but I must've missed it on my original scan through. Still would like it though!
  12. I have a bit of a workaround for those interested. In my case, this worked with trying to capture Washington Post comments. Let's say the goal would be to capture all currently visible comments. What I did was: Highlight any portion of text starting from the first comment. Continue to hold down the mouse/left-click. Hit the "End" key on your keyboard. This should bring you down to roughly the end of the comments section. Extend the highlighted section a little bit in order to ensure the last comment would be completely highlighted (you can let go of the mouse/left-click at this point). Right-click on any section of the highlighted text, then select "Print". Save as PDF. It's obviously not an ideal solution nor an elegant one, but at least it works without too much fuss. I'm going to test this method with some other websites I frequent in order to determine if it could potentially represent a more generalized solution rather than for a select few use cases.
  13. I've noticed how article comments hosted via external services (Disquis, etc) often cannot be brought into Evernote via the Web Clipper, which is a great shame since sometimes the content within the comments section is better than the content within the article itself. At the very least, I would hope to have an official explanation as to why such content cannot currently be captured, as previous threads I have seen discussing the topic have gone unanswered by Evernote employees over the years.
  14. For notes created in-house, I understand that this sort of action could be accomplished through the duplication of user-created "Template" notes with pre-existing tags. However, for content brought in via the Web Clipper, such functionality would be entirely missing. For instance, I may want to apply different sets of tags to incoming clipped content depending on the source, content type, etc. Although the web clipper does allow specific tags to be applied to all clipped content, this would not represent a sufficient solution. If we could utilize our own named tag sets via the Web Clipper, this issue would be instantly resolved. As of right now, the only alternatives would be to apply tags one by one or to handle content from within Evernote, neither of which would be ideal when applying several or more tags.
  15. I would also like a solution to this, as the same issue applies to Washington Post comments.
