(Archived) Web Clipper does not preserve layout

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use evernote but the web clipper fails miserably when it comes to clipping pages that are a little more than just a simple article. For example this page: http://www.systembolaget.se/5042

Try to clip the part that the describes the wine and the result really looks nothing like what's on the page. Copy and paste into evernote is a little better but it messes up the typography which lead to some layout quirks.

What Web Clipper are you using? ( Safari, Firefox, IE or Chrome ), based on my tests of this URL you are probably using Firefox.

There are a few settings that affects the preservation of styling for a clip in Firefox:

- Chose the 'Preserve all styles' setting or the equivalent in Swedish for best results.

- Use 'Send clips to web'

Our next release of Firefox native clipping will have improved style preservation.

I am using the Safari bookmarklet. The Beta extension on this forum seem to have no such option.

Sadly, they seem to have forgotten that the clipping feature is the primary way in which people interact with the system.

the latest release of the safari extension does seem to have been improved - have you tried it?

I have the same problem. I tried the new clipper, and indeed, I have to admit it's much better now.

I'd still like the clip-as-PDF option that used to be available (on Mac OS, anyway), but this is a big improvement.
