  1. Yeah, this is pretty lame—having the exact same issue, multiple times a day.
  2. Exactly—it just doesn't work. And never really has—not with any consistency.
  3. Come on, guys—the Web Clipper for Safari is just totally erratic and unreliable. Some days it works on some sites, then suddenly—for no apparent reason—it won't work on any page at all. It's just not ready for prime time, and although it gets worse with each subsequent "update", it has never really worked reliably—and this extremely irritating for those of us who pay and count on some semblance of functionality. Evernote has been consistently unreliable (if that's not an oxymoron), nowhere more so than with the Web Clipper, and this is tremendously frustrating. At least 25-30% of the time I have to use Skitch to grab a page, then manually enter in a title and url, etc. And then, of course, it's not in editable text format. I'm trying to transition to DEVONthink—their apps, including Office Pro, have no such problem. Their universal "Sorter" will take in everything I throw at it: from emails to videos to Word docs to web pages. So it's not as if it's some technical impossibility. And their cost starts to look reasonable, even cheap, after I look back at not only the fee for Evernote Premium, but the enormous waste of valuable time I've spent trying to get Evernote to work properly and as advertised.
  4. Yes—we're stuck with either: Being almost unable to read pdf's in Safari due to Adobe's atrocious plug-in. or Not using Evernote's excellent Web Clipper because it was designed to be dependent on Adobe's atrocious plug-in. A question: are Evernote developers or customer service people reading these forums?
  5. Add me to the big freeze, on both iPhone and iPad with iOS 7—reinstalling gets it working for about 5-10 seconds. Come on, Evernote—this is ridiculous.
  6. I have Adobe Acrobat Pro XI (11.0.03) installed. Clipping pdf files with the Evernote Web Clipper was going fine... Right up until I decided to disable the Acrobat Pro pdf plug-ins for Safari (so that pdf files in Safari would open in the browser's default, not Acrobat Reader). I followed the instructions on the Adobe site here: http://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-browser-acrobat-xi.html Now, however, I get an error when trying to use the Evernote Clipper, telling me to try reloading the page. When I reenable the Adobe plugins in Safari (by putting them back in the Internet Plug-ins folder in Library, by reversing above instructions), the Evernote Clipper works again. Disable it again—same problem. I've tried uninstalling the Web Clipper, and also tried closing Safari and restarting the machine before each step of changing the plugins—none of that makes any difference. Anyone have any ideas? I'd love to use Acrobat, Safari's preview of pdf's, and Evernote Web Clipper all together—and everything but the Web Clipper works fine. Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions. W.
