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.

LaunchBar 5.4

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.4, giving the popular keyboard launcher a number of new actions that it can perform, including sending files with AirDrop, displaying alerts in Notification Center, copying links of selected Evernote items, copying the sender of a selected Mail message, and opening Safari’s Top Sites view, plus a number of new actions related to phone numbers. LaunchBar 5.4 can also display Notification Center alerts for calendar entries created by LaunchBar, search within Evernote, perform modulo calculation in the calculator, and browse SparkleShare repositories. Improved are LaunchBar’s support for the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, indexing of Apple Developer Connection documentation, copying large quantities of data, detecting the 1Password keychain, and application indexing. Rounding out the update are a number of small bug fixes. ($35 new with a 20-percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 2.4 MB, release notes)
