Add Slides to Pear Note from Other Applications

If you have some slides in any application, and you'd like to add them to a Pear Note document, there's no need to save them out and then import them into Pear Note. Instead, you can send them directly to Pear Note through a PDF service. For instance, if you had slides in Keynote, just:

  1. Select Print within Keynote.
  2. Click the PDF button.
  3. Select Send PDF to Pear Note.

This can also be used to import other document types into Pear Note to take notes on them as well.

iWeb 3.0.3 -- Apple has updated iWeb—the iLife ’11 hanger-on that isn’t iDVD—to version 3.0.3. The update addresses an issue with the iSight Movie widget on certain Macs, and corrects problems publishing iWeb sites via FTP. Apple also says that the update “improves compatibility with Mac OS X,” which is good news I suppose, since that’s the only operating system that iWeb supports. ($49 new as part of iLife ’11, free update, 177.12 MB)
