Nimbus Clipper for Firefox - Quick Guide

Last Updated: Nov 01, 2015 11:05AM EST
1) Click on the addon button . Type your Nimbus username and password in the window that appears. If you don’t yet have a Nimbus account, go ahead and create one (it won’t take longer than a minute).

 2) As soon as you log into your Nimbus account, you will see the Nimbus Clipper panel.

To save information from the Internet, we recommend using the Clipper feature which allows you to save only the things you need. To use it, just click on Clipper and choose the fragments you want to save. To confirm the highlighting, you need to left-click on the fragment. This way, you can select several fragments from a site at once. If you want to discard the selection of one of the fragments, you can do so by clicking the delete button.

Full Page menu item allows you to clip the whole web page.

Image menu item allows you to choose any image on the web page and upload it to your Nimbus account.

3) After you select the fragment of the web page that you want to clip, the preview window showing your Nimbus note will appear. Specify (1) the name of your note, (2) the folder you want to save it to and (3) its tags in this window. Next, click the Save button to upload the data to Nimbus and create the note there.

You also can edit a future note before sending it to Nimbus. For example, if the text include any ads, images or links you don’t want, you can delete them in the edit field or add your text.

4) After the note is saved, you will be able to get its direct URL by clicking on get public link.

Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions:

Is there any other way to clip text other thanex by using the panel?

Sure, simply highlight the text you want to clip and right-click on it. Then, choose “Nimbus Clipper” and “Add selected to Nimbus” from the context menu.

Can I upload the clipped text without viewing the preview window?

Yes, you can! Go to add-on settings and check “Don’t show preview”.

How do I send a PDF file to Nimbus Note?

Open PDF in the built-in browser viewer and press the Clipper button. In the preview window you can specify a target folder for your future note as well as add comments. Then, you can send it to Nimbus.

 How do I save an email to Nimbus Note?

Open your e-mail service (currently Gmail and Yandex are supported) and press the Clipper button. In the preview window, you will be able to edit the text of your note and specify which attachments should be sent to Nimbus and which ones should not be sent.

What is Photoclip and what is it for?

There are cases in which Clipper is unable to save a page correctly and it displays incorrectly. Photoclip can help in cases like this by taking screenshots of selected fragments. Just select the fragments you want and click on Photoclip. You can hide the text in the preview window if you do not want it.
