What is a Smart Card and how do I use it?

Smart Cards are a type of note cards that are designed to enhance the user-experience by providing content in a neat, beautiful, and organized manner.  There are three types of Smart Cards, including Recipe Card, Video Card, and Link Card. 

Recipe Card intelligently parses the data from the recipe link, creates a checklist for the ingredients and provides step-by-step cooking instructions. Recipe Card can be created from only a list of specific websites. You can find the list of supported websites here.

Video Card saves a video from YouTube or Vimeo, and lets you watch it at ease.

Link Card saves the shared webpage and shows the headline or page title, along with the main image in Notebook. Use it to save your favorite webpages in Notebook.

Note: In order to create a Video or Recipe Card, you need to be signed into the app. It is also necessary to enable "Generate Smart Cards" from within the Settings option to be able to do this. 
Creation of Smart Cards

Smart Cards can be created by sharing a webpage link to Notebook. The Smart Card detects and identifies the information then creates specific notes based on the content type. In the web app, the user can simply drag a chosen URL and drop it onto the app to create a Smart Card. 

To convert a link already present in Notebook as a Smart Card, follow these steps :
(Note : This is possible in a note containing only one link.)
iOS & Android : 
  1. Select the note card.
  2. Tap More. (or  )
  3. Select Create Link card/Convert to Link card.
Mac : 
  1. Right-click the note card. 
  2. Select Create Link Card. 
Web, Windows & Linux: 
  1. Open the note card.
  2. Right-click the link.
  3. Select Save as Link Card.
