Chrome Suggestion/ Request: Disable pop-up every time a PDF pages is loaded

Idea

Every single time I load a page with a PDF, I get a little pop-up saying: "Did you know that you can clip PDF's directly to your Evernote account with the Web Clipper?"

Yes. I know. Because this pop-up appears every single time. Can you please tweak it so this pop-up does not appear every time I open an PDF page? Thanks!

I am also getting this. It is meant to only show for the first time you display some content I believe.

 They have had this happen before as well, but it looks like they finally put in an option to stop all of the pop ups. I was about to uninstall it.

I am in Chrome, and I right clicked on the web clipper ico, selected Options and then unticked the "Show related content..." under Related results.

Hi.  Do you have this option set?  (Firefox Clipper)

Hi gazumped,

Thanks for the suggestion! I did have that checked, but unfortunately, unchecking it does not solve the problem.

Ah.  Sorry about that. I'd suggest you contact support directly if you can then,  or message them on Twitter

Actually, I may have spoken too soon - that does seem to have taken care of the problem. Thanks!

I've been experiencing the same issue for weeks, and it's been driving me nuts. Unchecking that option has had no effect. I asked for help and received this message back from Thom with the tech support team: "This issue should be fixed with an upcoming update of the Web Clipper extension. I'm not certain at this time when this update will become available."

Same issue here as well. There are 50+ users having the same issue in a different thread from June of 2015

Count me as someone else who wants those popups gone. I'm in Safari--is there a place to get to those options shown in the Firefox screen shot?

Thanks for mentioning it again--I hadn't been able to find Clipper Options in Safari, but I went and looked again. Now I finally have. We'll see if it helps.

No problem.  Can you confirm where the option is in Safari for us Firefox users?

When you invoke the Clipper, at the bottom of the window where you say what you want to clip and where to file it, there's a gear icon. CLick that to bring up the Options window.

Aaand it didn't work. I just opened a PDF page in Safari and got the stupid "did you know?" message. I checked the options page, and I still have the box unticked. I'll tell Support.

As Gazuumped says,. check that you don't have the option referring to pdfs checked in the options. However, in my experience it makes no difference. I get this annoying nag/spam EVERY time I open  a pdf in my Firefox browser. EVERY time.

Sadly, there isn't any point in contacting support, as another member posts above, there are several existing threads about this problem, one going back more than 2 years, where one 'Employee Alumni' says he thinks its a good idea.... he knows where he can stick his thoughts. There hasn't been a fix yet, so I wouldn't hold my breath. EN demonstrates repeatedly that the software is what THEY want it to be, not what the users want. 'Ignoring' a problem for years like this is an example.

For many people, like me, the only reason I have Evernote is because of the ability to clip web pages exactly as they appear. If I'm going to get spammed everytime a PDF opens, the add-on becomes to much trouble to bother with. For me, its future has been in doubt for some time, and the force feeding of what some clown at EN thinks is a good idea is the reason why I will never pay for the software and am steadily moving over to other solutions, Every time I encounter another problem, I increase my usage of other software. Only a matter if time before I stop using EN altogether. Instead of giving me reasons to buy the software, they just give me reasons to buy something else.
