The web clipper provides a few options to help you clip exactly the part of the page you need:
Full page mode clips the web page from top to bottom including every possible detail. This mode is also the largest in size & consequently takes longer to clip.
Article mode is best for blogs & articles on the web because it tries to finds the “content” part of the page using a couple of heuristics. It works similar to Firefox’s Reader Mode.
Visible area mode clips only the nodes that fit in the viewport. Any nodes that are partially in the viewport are also included.
Selected nodes mode allows you to select exactly which nodes you want to clip:

The web clipper stacks all the selected nodes vertically during final processing.
The clipping mode controls how the final clip should look.
Simplified mode doesn’t include any styles. It is best suited for long-form content such as articles & blogs. All clips in
Simplified mode are saved directly as is i.e. they do not appear as web clip embeds in the Notesnook editor.
