little elephant thing

anonymous asked:

When you have time for a 'Sam Explains' thing, could you give a short tutorial on Evernote? Thanks!

Evernote is actually pretty super-duper simple once you get the hang of it, but that can sometimes be a little complex…

Uh. So. People will tell you to download the app for your phone. Don’t do that unless you really like taking notes and surfing the web on your phone. Just fucking move on without the app, you don’t need it, YOU ARE A STRONG PERSON.

Go to www.evernote.com/evernote/ (because evernote the brand and evernote the website are two different things, evernote the brand has all this other shit, don’t go there yet, shh) and click “sign up” in the upper right corner. Sign the fuck up!

Then, wait for it, no, don’t do anything evernote tells you, go BACK TO www.evernote.com/evernote/ and click on “get the web clipper”. If you are on firefox, you need to install the little plugin thing and then go to View>Toolbars>Customize and add the elephant-head-looking-thing to one of your menu bars. If you’re on Chrome you shouldn’t have to add it, it will add itself, self-determining elephant heads a go-go. If you’re on Internet Explorer, you have my sympathy and there is no help or hope for you.

YOUR WEB CLIPPER IS NOW INSTALLED. Welcome to the future.

When you come across a fanfic or a webpage or a fanart or IDK, that really funny bit of Facebook where your dad posted a selfie of his thumb, click the little elephant head thing. On Firefox you generally get a drop-down where you can alter the text, choose what notebook the page will go into, add tags, and other stuff. On Chrome this shows up on the side and sometimes the tags are autofilled, but you can click on basically any part of the drop-sideways bar and edit shit.

IF evernote is highlighting the wrong part of the page to be saved, close the evernote drop-down/sideways and highlight the part you want saved, then click the elephant head thing again and select “clip selected”. It will clip only the part you highlight.

If you go to www.evernote.com and log in, you will be taken to your Evernote account where all this shit is stored. You can click on any item to view or edit it. You can make notebooks to store shit in, tag things, delete tags, rename tags, edit fanfics to remove that one really glaring grammar error or cut out any bit that’s not porny, whatever your heart desires.

It’s really pretty intuitive so you should get the hang of it quickly, but I’ll do some kind of live-action Evernote tutorial this weekend on livestream, if people so desire.
