The latest update to Smile’s text expansion utility TextExpander features only bug fixes, but they may be important ones for you. Most notably, TextExpander 3.3.4 fixes an issue with updating snippets and settings via Dropbox, and works better if your Dropbox folder is not in your Home folder. The update also changes how TextExpander works when you use input methods (like Japanese or Chinese) that combine keystrokes; if that’s not a desired behavior, you can reset it using instructions in this blog post. Nested plain text snippets now take their formatting from the snippet in which they are nested, too, and Smile fixed various interface display issues and other minor bugs.

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:
- Select Print within Keynote.
- Click the PDF button.
- 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.
