Web clipping does not work properly:
- headings within the article not shown in bear app (you need to manually add them by typing them out)
- some pictures/figures in the article are not shown in bear app

    Hi,

    Bear web clipper uses a mobilizer to grab the site content. The mobilizer tries to understand where the main content of the page is and avoid to import unuseful parts ( navigation, ads, comments, ...) but sometimes do work as supposed.

    In Safari/Chrome/Firefox you can avoid the mobilizer by selecting the part you want to convert before clicking Bear extension button. This video show by the end what I mean:

    Cheers.

    yes it blocks the adds correctly which is fine, but the headings like H1, H2 etc don’t show at all. I have to manually write them, which is time consuming as I need to recheck the original article.

    see this example

    I've done some tests and seems a problem with the mobilizer we use. I reported the problem to its developers.

    Thanks.
