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.

LaunchBar 5.4.1

Send Article to a Friend

Objective Development has released LaunchBar 5.4.1 with a wide-ranging list of enhancements to the keyboard launcher, including improved compatibility with iTunes 11. Other iTunes-related changes include a fix for an issue that failed to “Go to Current Song” when playing a song via LaunchBar; a fix for a Show in iTunes action failure; and redesigned icons for Artist, Album, and Track. The update also modifies the behavior of the “Switch to Calculator when typing digits” option, which now makes it possible to enter abbreviations that start with a digit (such as 1P to open 1Password) even with this preference turned on. Dash support for developers looking up API documentation is improved, enabling you to select Dash and then press the Spacebar to trigger the “Look up in Dash” action. The release also improves VoiceOver support in the index window, display of an app’s recent documents, indexing and display of mounted volumes, compatibility with SparkleShare, commands for Assign Abbreviation and Show in Index, and detection of labeled email addresses during Instant Send. Finally, LaunchBar fixes an issue that prevented the app from hiding after receiving a file via drag and drop.
