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.

La Cie Software Updates Online

Send Article to a Friend

La Cie Software Updates Online -- Users of La Cie's Silverlining disk formatter and other software products have long been frustrated by La Cie's software update policy. First, La Cie never told customers about updates, and when you learned about them yourself, obtaining them involved the irksome process of sending your original disks to La Cie along with payment. Given that history, La Cie customers will rejoice to learn that La Cie has set up a Web site which, along with some decent technical information and product info, includes updaters to current versions of its Silverlining, Silverscanner, and Joule RAID software. You still must have an original version to upgrade, but this sure beats relying on the postal service or word of mouth. Possibly the only folks happier about this than La Cie's customers are La Cie's technical support staff. [GD]
