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.

THINK C 5.0.3 Bug Alert

Send Article to a Friend

Tom Emerson from Symantec recently posted the following useful information about problems with THINK C 5.0.3:

"As many have found, THINK C 5.0.3's global optimizer has several serious bugs that did not exist in version 5.0.2. We are currently addressing these and hope to have a fix available in the near future. In the interim we ask that if you must use 5.0.3 do not use the code motion global optimization. Bugs have been reported (new in 5.0.3, non-existent in 5.0.2) in the handling of volatile (a volatile expression will be optimized out; this is linked to the code motion) and the align_arrays pragma (doesn't work in several cases)."
