(Archived) Clipper does not remember last selected notebook

Recommended Posts

I'm curious why the clipper does not remember the last notebook I selected when clipping? Generally when I am on a research project, I want to record clips to the same notebook. It would be great if the clipper would remember the last selected notebook. Maybe even remember the same tags.

Thoughts?

Regards,

Rob

The clipper comes default with a mind of its own, a.k.a "smart filing". If you turn this option off, the clipper will keep putting notes into the last selected notebook until you tell it otherwise. Hope this helps!

Hi, Blake. I'm running version 5.1.0.252437. It does not appear to have any options other than to clip to the web or desktop client.

I see it. I had it configured to go to my desktop client, so there was no option to remember anything. If I change it to go to the web client, I get the option to remember the notebook. It would be great to enable these options to the desktop client as well.

Thanks!

Firefox, eh? That makes this chrome enthusiast just a little bit sad. :P

Go into the options, select send clips to "Evernote Web". This opens up a slew of new options. You should see one that says "Destination notebook for clips". Choose remember.

EDIT: Glad you figured it out seconds before I could help.

Thanks for this thread. Smart Filing has been bugging me for a while. It takes an extra second or two, and seldom guesses the folder I want.

I had a webchat with support a couple of weeks ago asking about this option. They said it was not currently possible, and that they would forward a feature request to development. Cancel that request!

Reading everything in this thread, I had a lot of trouble finding the Options. I kept trying to "go into the options", but didn't know how. I tried finding Options before contacting support too. I was always looking in the dialog that comes up after clicking the Web Clipper. Reading this thread, i realized I must be missing something. I finally tried right clicking on the Web Clipper icon, and found Options there. success!
