How are clutter-free PDFs generated? To me it looks like they are really clutter-free Markdowns which then are just converted to PDF, because visually they are a lot closer to the normal Markdowns than to the normal PDFs.
Any way to tweak this, so that the clutter-free PDFs look more like the normal PDFs?
Sorry, if I was not clear: With “normal PDF” I meant a PDF the DEVONthink clipper generates when clutter-free is not ticked.
Cool. Didn’t know about the separate Readability.js.
My experiments with Instapaper Text and Safari Reader told me, this all works reasonably well for things like blog posts, but often it doesn’t perform well enough for product pages (from online shops, etc).
I really wish for a easy workflow for Browser image to PDF to DEVONthink!
I do too. In the meantime, I’m using Safari’s File > Export as PDF feature, which is a full-page screenshot with working links and text layer that saves the page as you see it in the browser (no ads when using content blockers).
There are no alternatives for that feature and every other solution has downsides.
drag it onto DEVONthink’s icon in the dock
(this creates a webarchive of the selected part)
convert the webarchive to PDF
(Data > Convert > to paginated PDF)
There’s also a Smart Rule script which moves a webarchive into the current group and selects it so one can see whether everythings fine. If you’re capturing a lot webarchives that’s a very comfortable way as you don’t need to select the destination group each time and the result can be checked without switching between Safari and DEVONthink.
