Right now, I am trying a service called diigo that allows me to highlight and comment any web page I come across. I also use an IFTTT recipe to send the highlighted URL's page to an Evernote notebook.

But what I would really like to do is to send the highlighted text and comment and not the URL to Evernote, so that I could search for everything in one place.

How can I do this seamlessly?

  • I am not doing this seamlessly. But since Diigo has a mode that shows every underline and comment on a page, I simply select them with the mouse and use Evernote WebClipper to do the copy pasting. Not ideal but good enough until a better solution arises. – Alexandre Martins May 28 '14 at 13:39

I was facing the same issue, but I have found a solution. I used IFTTT to create a recipe with Todoist and Evernote. Upon installing the Todoist Chrome Extension, I can highlight things, pull up a secondary menu (right-click for most people), and click "Add to Todoist". IFTTT then sends that new item to the end of a note in Evernote, for me to sit down and organize when I have time later.

While not the preferred method, it is the method that works best.

Is there any reason you are trying to reinvent the wheel? Why not use Evernote web clipper which does exactly that https://evernote.com/webclipper/

  • Evernote notes are not associated with the page if I visit it a few months from now. I like having things in front of me if at all possible. – Alexandre Martins May 15 '14 at 14:11
  • I also want to send only the highlights and comments to Evernote, not the whole text. And this is not possible with WebClipper. – Alexandre Martins May 15 '14 at 14:20
