safari INSTALLING EVERNOTE CLIPPER IN SAFARI, CHROME AND IOS8

Recommended Posts

Welcome Paul,

First, a minor clarification: There is no clipper application/download for iPhone and iPad per se. Aside from the Evernote application, which you obtain from the App Store, there is no additional download required for clipping in iOS. More on this below. 

 

For Safari and Chrome on your Mac: You need to navigate to https://evernote.com/webclipper/ in each browser. So navigate to that page in Safari, download the extension, then double-click the extension to install it in Safari. Then navigate to that same website in Chrome and follow the directions.  You cannot use the file you downloaded in Safari to install the extension in Chrome. You MUST visit that website in EACH browser.

 

You can confirm that the extension has been installed by navigating to the Extensions section of each browser's Preference menu. You should also see a toolbar icon for the clipper (if you don't you can right-click on the toolbar and select "customize toolbar", and drag the elephant icon to the desired location on your toolbar. 

 

For iOS: In iOS there is nothing that needs to be installed other than the Evernote application. Once the Evernote application has been installed, and you have opened the application and logged in, you should be able to navigate to any website in Safari on iOS, click the Share button (square with the upward pointing arrow) which will display two rows of icons, colourful app icons on the top, black and white icons on the bottom. In the TOP row, scroll all the way to the end where you will see a "More" icon that features three dots. Tap this icon which should display a list of applications and toggle switches. Use the toggle to enable evernote and tap "done" in the top right. Evernote should now appear as one of the colourful icons in the top row (these can be reordered by holding and dragging them around). 

Now you should be able to visit any website, hit that share button (box with upward arrow), and tap the Evernote icon in that top row.

Hello Scott,

 

I have a problem opening web clipper in Safari (could download, but not install).

I GOT:

Macbook Air: OS X El Capitan version 10.11.1

Safari: Version 9.0.1

STEPS I HAVE TAKEN:

1.downloaded EVN from https://evernote.com/products/

2. downloaded web clipper from https://evernote.com/webclipper/

3. tried to open downloaded web clipper, but only got "Safari can’t install this extension. An error occurred while installing the extension Evernote Web Clipper.”

4. uninstalled EVN

5. repeated steps 1.-4. several times

 

Still won't work.

Please please please get this fix. My productivity is suffering  :( Thank you very much.

UPDATE:

I GOT:

Macbook Air: OS X El Capitan version 10.11.1

Safari: Version 9.0.1

NEW STEPS I HAVE TAKEN:

1.downloaded EVN from https://evernote.com/products/

2. downloaded web clipper from https://safari-extensions.apple.com

3. restarted safari

Web clippers works perfectly now.

For a while the web-clipper worked for me.(OS Sierra 10.12.3, Evernote Version 6.10) Now I just can't get it to work. I've uninstalled and re-installed and am losing patience. Evernote without the WebClipper is not very useful for me. I am disappointed to have to pay more for so much less. If this doesn't get sorted, I'm going to look for an alternative.
