Can you use a search function with text clipped from Web Clipper Chrome extension?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I want to save snippets and quotes from articles I come across. I use the Web Clipper Chrome extension but can't figure out any way to save text besides using the screenshot feature. I need to be able to search through the words at a later point; tags will not suffice, I want to be able to search for specific phrases. Is there a way for Evernote to capture the text of webpages in a searchable way (not images)? Thank you.

Yes.

When you activate the Chrome EN Web clipper, you should see a popup window offering choices of what to clip.  Just choose any of these to clip text rather than an image of the text:

  • Article
  • Simplified Article
  • Full Page

Thank you JMichaelTX. I don't want the whole article though, I want selected bits of text. Is there a way to clip only the text I find relevant?

Yes.  Just select the text before you invoke the web clipper.
