Use Papercuts to Create Endless Notes in Chrome

Use Papercuts to Create Endless Notes in Chrome

February 27, 2013 at 03:31AM


You’re on the internet a lot, right? When you are browsing and want to keep a bit of information, do you make a text file or use something like it to keep your notes? Well, Papercuts is an add-on for Google Chrome letting you keep all of you notes in one spot while you are browsing.

When you just need to keep information handy while you are browsing or even a little longer like the length of a project, you can easily save some information right in  your browser. Let’s take a look how.

Getting started

Normally this is the part where we tell you to download the app. However, you will need to make sure you are all set up to sync the information (assuming you want to access the information elsewhere). To do this, you will need to make sure you are logged into Google Chrome using your Google Account.


Once you are logged in, head to the advanced settings where you can check to see if the apps and extensions boxes are checked. By default, all of them were checked when I signed into Chrome.


Once you are all logged in and ready to sync you can go ahead and download Papercuts from the Chrome Web Store.


What you will notice is the icon of course, but also the addition of a new bookmark folder. DO NOT MOVE OR MODIFY THIS FOLDER! If you do it will screw everything up and you could lose your information.


Using Papercuts

When you want to make a note, click on the icon. This will bring up a box where you can copy and paste your information.


After you have added a few notes, you can add different labels to help keep things organized a little better. These labels are more like a title.


You can also add notebooks. This is done by clicking on the plus sign near the top of the window. This will add a new tab to the window. This is the new notebook.


When you create several notes you can see them again by clicking the icon in your Chrome browser. The notes for each tab are displayed in a single row. You can rearrange them by dragging and dropping them in the order you want.


Final words

There are some features in Papercuts that would be cool, but didn’t seem to be functioning. The keyboard  shortcuts and right-click options are there, but didn’t work when tested. They may be fixed in a later update. Some of them like the CTRL+N normally open a new browser window so perhaps we could change them to something we don’t use in the future.
