Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

Updated to version 5.0.5, Evernote for Mac now enables you to sync shortcuts across multiple Macs (other platforms will get the shortcuts feature in future updates). Other new features in the information management service’s software include the capability to focus searches so they exclude shared notes, the use of AppleScript to create checkboxes in the ENML markup language, and the capability to select multiple tags in the sidebar by Command-clicking. The update also improves sync performance for large accounts, prints PDFs more reliably, improves Korean image indexing, fixes sidebar visual glitches in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and improves handling of tags in AppleScript.
