Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

I have Moneydance 2010 - registered. I downloaded MD 2011 and installed it. I am unable to register with the 2010 registration code. No information on how to register the upgrade.
The user guide is still the 2010 version - no reference to 2011. Looks like there's still work to do. I'll contact MD and see what happens.
I'm curious as to why TidBits hasn't written about iBank. There's an ad for it on your site as I type this, but a search turns up nothing.

Time, mostly, and the fact that writing about financial management software can be pretty involved. (And none of us are accountants.) But don't worry, we're looking into Quicken alternatives since things change in Lion.
