Grabbing content automatically

Grabbing the content automatically means that you don't have to worry about selecting the text by yourself in the page. GrabMyBooks can try and detect the main article of a page. Of course sometimes the detection won't be perfect due to how the web site being visited is built. In the case where the automatic detection hasn't worked you can still grab the content manually. Another (more technical) option would be to configure a detection rule for that website.

Grabbing the content of the current page

Whenever there is a web page of which you would like to grab the content, you can click wherever with the right button and the context menu pops. Click on the Grab this page and a new article containing the main content of the page is added to your book.
