Let’s get started with the tutorial 😀.
Install the RemNote Clipper for Google Chrome
Open up Google Chrome and go to the Chrome Web Store.
Click in the search box and type “remnote clipper” as shown in the above screenshot.
The RemNote Clipper should be the first entry in the search results. Click on it to open the extension page for RemNote Clipper.
The Chrome extension page for the RemNote Clipper should now be showing on your screen. Click on the “Add to Chrome” button to start the process to install the RemNote Clipper extension into your Google Chrome browser.
A permissions dialog box will appear that will tell you what level(s) of access the RemNote Clipper extension will have. Click on the “Add extension” button to continue the installation process.
Once installed, you should be redirected to a nice tutorial page on the RemNote Clipper. Bookmark this page for future reference.
You may not notice the RemNote Clipper in your Chrome toolbar. You need to make sure it is pinned as shown in the above screenshot.
You should now see the RemNote Clipper in your Google Chrome toolbar.
Using the RemNote Clipper
Navigate to a webpage you want to clip content from in Google Chrome.
Click on the RemNote Clipper button in your toolbar. You should see a pop-up window like the one above. Type in a name for your note and click “Add Note“. To view your new note, click the “Open Document” button.
When you click the “Open Document” button, Chrome will present you with a split-screen with your RemNote page on the left and the webpage you just clipped on the right. If your RemNote page doesn’t have anything one it, click on the refresh button on the divider (looks like a circular arrow) to refresh RemNote. Your page should appear.
Note that the RemNote Clipper doesn’t clip the page but rather creates a document for that page with the URL of the page. Anytime you go to this page in Google Chrome going forward and select content to clip from this specific page, RemNote will add it to the same RemNote document you just created.
Let’s test this out. Highlight some text on the webpage. An “Add Note” should appear next to the highlighted text as shown above. Click on the “Add Note“.
As you can see, the text you highlighted has been added to the RemNote page for that webpage. Highlight some more text from the webpage.
You should see the same “Add Note” button as before. Click it.
The highlighted text should be appended to your RemNote page for that webpage as shown above.
I hope this tutorial was helpful to you. Good luck!
