Web Clipper

Geoff Dec 03, 2016 04:17AM PST

Please provide a web clipper similar to that for OneNote, Evernote, Pocket etc.
Current solution of Print to Outline either produces streams of garbage or poor quality images.

I'm currently using the OneNote clipper to send pages to a temporary OneNote file and then dragging them to my Outline notebook. This is not ideal

Hi Geoff,

Thanks for reaching out!

I've added your vote for this feature.
And what do you mean by "streams of garbage" (what "poor quality images" is I know - I've seen this bug)?
As far as I know Outline uses Mac's method of converting the web pages into PDFs so usually the PDFs are the same as the web page itself.
Do you have some different result?

garbage from web pages when I select print to outline. This is not Outline-Specific but it underlines the need for a proper web clipper that can save the page as displayed with full quality graphics.

Oh, I got it, thank you for explanation!

So I think next year, when we'll be ready to plan some new major features we will take a look at such clipper tool for Outline.
And what about the pictures - I think we will be able to fix them even sooner as it's been quite some time I keep getting complaints about them.

So feel free to keep an eye on our progress with our social net accounts:

And please write to me here or directly at if there are any other difficulties in your Outline.
I will help!
