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.

LaserWriter 8.2

Send Article to a Friend

LaserWriter 8.2 was recently released by Apple, and they recommend using it instead of any previous 8.x driver. Fixes and changes mentioned include: improved printing of PICTs containing rotated objects, improved Chooser setup routine, and a change in the default output device - the 8.2 driver always defaults back to the printer as the print job destination. Evidently, previous versions defaulted to the most recently used destination and - as a result - too many print jobs were accidently faxed via printers that include fax cards.

The version of 8.2 available on the nets does not come with an installer; instead you get the driver and a folder of Apple PPDs. The ReadMe suggests that you use an installer to install a previous version of the 8.x driver before copying the 8.2 driver into your Extensions folder. The ReadMe also recommends trashing your LaserWriter Prefs folder and using the new PPDs. [TJE]
