Create Dropbox Paper Web Clipper extension for Firefox & Chrome web browsers

Helpful | Level 6

Most of note taking services have Web Clipper extensions for modern web browsers like Firefox and Chrome, that provide easy way to store some info in current page or whole page in user note storage. But in Dropbox Paper this feature is missing at now. 

So please create web browser clipper addon for easy clipping content into Dropbox Paper!

Web Clipper Released for Chrome

Helpful | Level 6

Hey Dropboxers,

I have released a beta version of the Web Clipper on Chrome. I have been using Dropbox for a while but recently switched to Dropbox Paper from Evernote and felt the need of web clipper. Developed just last week and all set to release beta after initial testing.

Now you can easily clip and save the contents (Let it be recipe, travel blog, news, research, business, shopping or research article) you like while browsing and never worry about searching the whole list of history and bookmarks again.

ADD TO CHROME
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/web-clipper-for-dropbox/oblhholoigcdnggmpekdkkkohckiennk

CLIP
- Full body from web page
- Select part of web page by moving around cursor and click the highlighted part
- Bookmark
- All image assets

COMING SOON
- Designer friendly way to organize moodboarding.
- Clip color palette and typographies for inspiration.
- PDF files and videos.
- Highlight and edit content before save to Dropbox Paper.

Please let me know if you spot any issues.

Thanks!

strongly agree. It's a deal breaker for me to use paper instead of onenote

From time to time I test Dropbox Paper, and I can say the Web Clipper and better table management are the only 2 things that are holding me back from being a Dropbox paid subscriber.

Hey there @manish1988 - thanks so much for using Paper and I appreciate the time you devoted to do this and also let us know about it. 

I have moved your post in a more appropriate section of our forums so other users can find it easily.

I also wanted to let you know that this has been suggested in the past on this thread and this one as well. 

Let me know if you need anything else!

Hey Dropboxers,

I have been using Dropbox for a while but recently switched to Dropbox Paper from Evernote and felt the need of web clipper (which is also a feature demand from other fellow dropboxers).

I developed this extension last week and launched it on Chrome for initial beta testing. Firefox extension coming soon after the first phase of the successful rollout.
