Web Clipper no longer available for Safari 12.0

Recommended Posts

I cannot locate the Web Clipper in the Extensions list for Safari 12.0 (High Sierra). 

When I menu to Safari>Extensions (which takes me to the App Store) and search for "evernote," the results show the Evernote application itself and a few plugins that integrate into Evernote (e.g. no Web Clipper extension (same result when I search for extensions containing "clipper").

Any suggestions as to what's wrong or how to locate and install the Evernote Web Clipper

I have the same problem-- disappeared Web Clipper for Safari 12.0; no web searches turn up anything of use!

As an Evernote user since possibly the beginning-- this latest problem, and the lack of any kind of explanation or reassurance from Evernote leaves me frustrated & just a tad disillusioned.

is Evernote working on it? Do they even care? Hey Evernote--Anybody there?

That worked great! Thanks.

It did? I only come to a page asking if I "Want to develop your own extensions?".

I noticed on my machine that the "Want to develop" text appears first, and then a couple seconds later, the extension info appears above that text. Perhaps try it again, and see if something is preventing the extension link from displaying? Or if you have to wait a few seconds or scroll up?

The web clipper for Safari simply doesn't work.  I've downloaded it multiple times, deleted the extension, cleared the cookies, restarted the computer many times and still the icon shows up on the toolbar with the dot on the bottom left indicating the web clipper is not installed.  It's happened before in prior versions of Evernote and Safari but I was always able to reinstall and get it working.  I'm using a Mac with the latest OS (10.13.6) and Safari 12.0 and the latest version of Evernote.  Any steps I can take to get the web clipper working again?

The link supplied "On 10/8/2018 at 4:00 PM, Barry McBride," worked on OS 10.13.6 and Safari 12.0, just like yours steveb14. You actually did much more than I did to try to get it working (I didn't clear cookies or restart my Mac). Frustrating.

Thanks for the moral support, RA.  I also used the link supplied by Barry McBride but the web clipper still will not work.  Each time I choose the clipper it takes me to the Evernote sign on screen but signing in does not cause it to function.  It used to work, albeit it would periodically exhibit this behavior (maybe due to Evernote updates or OS updates?), but I could always fix it by uninstalling the clipper, signing out of Evernote, clearing cookies, shutting down Safari, restarting my Mac, signing into Evernote, and reinstalling the clipper.  No such luck with many similar tries for the past month.

For what it's worth, which is probably very little, the clipper works for me on 10.14.0 and now 10.14.1 (currently build 18B67a) without issue, on two iMacs and a new MBP. It works on both Safari 12.0.1 (14606.2.104.1.1) and Technology Preview Release 67 (Safari 12.1)

I only mention that to suggest that the problem is more likely to be some local configuration issue or messed up preference file rather than an overall broken extension.

It might be worthwhile to create a new account on your Mac and see if the clipper will work from there. That would narrow the problem down to a configuration issue, probably in Safari. Or you could just completely reset Safari on your live profile, but that might be extreme.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Although I didn't have to create a new account, you were correct that the issue was local.  For lack of a better description, the clipper worked in Safari when configured in a "new window" rather than a "new private window."  That did the trick.  Perhaps the "new private window" blocks items that the clipper needs to configure properly.  In any event, it's working now.

I received a message that Safari no longer supports EN Clipper

Who sent the message (was it from EN or Apple)? What version of Safari no longer supports the EN Clipper?

For All with the same web clipper problem:  I just got this from a higher-level tech:

"It looks like you have the "Prevent cross-site tracking" option selected which will prevent the Clipper from functioning by design. To resolve this issue, please de-select the "Prevent cross-site tracking" option."

This definitely, unequivocally worked!, after many, many back-and-forth emails & web searchings.  Give it a try, and good luck!

That confuses me. 

Ive had the cross-site blocking option turned on for a long as it's been an option. It's on now.The clipper works perfectly for me and installs without an issue as long as I get it from Safari Extensions page. Glad it worked for you all the same.

It's all a mystery; whatever works. Before I unchecked "Prevent cross-site blocking," it was suggested that I uncheck "block all cookies." All three of those options (incl. "Ask websites not to track me") are unchecked in my Privacy settings...

Jackmcguire, I went in and made those changes. WHERE exactly did you go then to download clipper for Safari?

Well, shut my mouth and feed me fried green tomatoes, Reverend. I find I now have Clipper installed on Safari. And maybe have for some time, not sure. Why? Because I just discovered the little elephant, in a totally different position than he assumes in Chrome.

Here's what it looks like beside the URL slot:

I have completed all the suggestions above, cleared my history, unchecked Prevent cross-site blocking, block all cookies (already unchecked), cleared website data, unstalled/re-installed Web Clipper twice.  I am running Safari v.12.0 using MacOS Mojave 10.14.  I get the following message.  I cannot get logged into the app on the toolbar.  Any suggestions?

I am running Safari 12.0.1 and High Sierra, I had a lot of problems with the clipper and could finally reinstall it after finding a correct link here.

It still does not work properly, and seems to be dependent on the site that you are trying to clip and what you are trying to clip. for example, it will allow you to clip the bookmark on some sites (like this one) but not others. On some sites, it will properly clip the article, but not the bookmark, etc. I do not feel like spending the next few hours testing all possible combinations on a variety of sites, so please excuse me for not doing a better job as Evernote's QA department. I have tried allowing cross-site tracking (against my better judgement) but it made no difference.

This bug is extremely annoying to the point of taking away a big part of the usefulness of the app. I already regret having taken the annual subscription and will most likely not renew it. Too bad, it looked like a good product for a little while.
