Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
Have you ever been browsing the web, and you've come across information you wish you could keep? Well, of course you can, now that you have Evernote, and a place to keep it, your Evernote notebooks. To do that here on the Mac, we need to use the Web Clipper, which is an extension that we add on to Safari. Where do we find that? Well, from evernote.com, let's go to products, and Evernote. Now, from this change we now we can get Evernote for the Mac, but next to it is a button to get the web clipper. And the web clipper is better than simply doing what we did in the previous movie and capturing a part of our screen.
The web clipper is going to find things like articles that go on past what we can see on our screen, for example. So, here's where you need to go if you're going to be following along with me. Get the Web Clipper. Go to your downloads and install it. And once you do you're going to see this little button appear on your toolbar in Safari. That's our Web Clipper. So, now all we have to do is browse the web and use that button when we want. Let's go to Blogs, and select Evernote Blog. From here, we'll scroll down through the various topics until we see one that is of interest to us. How about this one Evernote food.
That takes us to the Evernote blog for Evernote food and you'll notice that we have an article here that we can scroll through, but there's a lot of extraneous information on the screen that we would not want to capture. For example, the options we see across the top and this pane down the right-hand side. So, when we go to this button,for the Web Clipper, give it a click. You're going to see some options. First of all, you'll see the site we're looking at for Evernote food, next you get to choose the Notebook where this is going to go. So if you'll click your drop down, you can choose any of your Notebooks. I think David's Notebook it's a good place for it to go. We could add tags, which will help us in finding information later on. We'll be talking about tags in an upcoming movie.
Same thing for comments. But for now, look at the button down in the bottom right-hand corner. Save article is the default. Click the drop down though, and if you've already selected content, you could save just the selection. Or save the whole page. If you select save full page, you'll notice the highlighting, the yellow border goes around the entire page. We don't want all that stuff, so when we click the drop down, the other option is to save the URL only. But if information changes or the URL dies over time, we won't keep the information we want, so let's go back to Save Article. Now, it's just the content we want.
With that selected, we click Save Article. Notice in the top right corner, a message indicating that it's clipping and it's syncing. And now down below, you'll see some related notes that we might be interested in. We could go to other clips from the blog. Or you can simply close this up if you're done and switch over to Evernote. Let's do that. Now, here on Evernote, we just need to go to the appropriate notebook to find what was clipped. You may need to sync as well, if a sync hasn't happened recently. There it is under David's Notebook, the Evernote blog. Notice what appears here when we click it.
It's not the whole webpage. It's just the graphic and the article down below, even the stuff we couldn't see on screen. I like the web clipper it's a definite option that you'll want to consider. An extension to Safari that makes it easy to capture anything you see on the web, and send it over to Evernote.
