1) Click the add-on 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 Fragment feature which allows you to save only the things you need. To use it, just click on Fragment 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 Note account.
The Article button will clear any unnecessary elements from the page and display the article in the most convenient way to read. You also can save the article in Nimbus to view it on other devices.
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 future notes before sending them to Nimbus. For example, if the text includes any unwanted ads, images or links, 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.
