How to troubleshoot Evernote Web Clipper

If you're having trouble using Evernote Web Clipper, first make sure you install the latest version of Evernote Web Clipper for your browser, then follow the appropriate steps below.

Certain pages won't clip, or the clip doesn't look like the original page

Certain web clips may not look the same as the original page or may not clip at all. Often, this happens when the original web page has a lot of design elements, interactive content, or multimedia such as video or audio.

Below are some ideas for how to clip pages you're having trouble with. The best solution and those available to you will be different for each device and browser.

  • Switch the clip type. Try Article, Simplified Article, and Full Page modes to see which one gives the best results.
  • Try selecting only the portion of content you want to clip, then open the clipper.
  • Capture the page as a Screenshot.
  • Ensure that third-party cookies are not blocked and that Evernote is whitelisted in your browser.
  • If you are using ad-blocker extensions, please disable them temporarily.
  • Clear the cache in your browser.
  • Sign out and sign in from your Evernote account.
  • Try clipping a different web page.

If, after trying the above alternatives, you're still unable to clip content to Evernote, contact us and include the specific web page that you are attempting to clip.
