(Archived) Who was the brainiac that made this clipping function?

Recommended Posts

Evernote used to be spit simple: you wanted a webpage saved in toto, you clicked the elephant and presto, an Evernote clipping right in your program. Unless I'm missing something -- not difficult to do in the oceans of posts on this site, and a web clipper extension that doesn't make any sense in its description -- when one wants to clip a webpage, it now gets saved to the web site where it then has to be synced into your program later. WTF? It's like someone at Evernote said: how can we really piss off our existing customers? And someone answered: I know, let's make it A LOT more work to get anything into their own program.

Safari. Now using 5.1 Downloaded the beta extension -- which works fine, if you don't mind the belly dance of 1) having to sign in; 2) uploading everything to the website, only to 3) launch Evernote and 4) sync manually.

The old way, clicking on our friendly pachyderm would clip the page, load Evernote, make a note and Bob's your uncle.

With the changes in Safari 5.1 it has become very hard to save as PDF from our extension and enable native clipping.

I completely agree. The old way was much simpler. I don't like having to manage my notes via another website. Having them go straight into an application on my Mac makes me feel more in control and it feels more immediate.

I understand that Apple have made some changes. Are you saying that it can't be done any longer? No work-around?

Well, I just tried clipping this whole page using the beta Evernote toolbar applet and no joy, even with Evernote open AND then syncing. How do you spell Bow Gus?
