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.

Trash Trick

Send Article to a Friend

Trash Trick -- Dave Anderson writes with another method of tricking Nisus or similar applications into using the trash as a storage place for secondary backup files. This should work better for people who can't boot under System 6 and don't want to mess with ResEdit, although it does require keeping an alias of the trash around.

Regarding the review of TrashMan in TidBITS-119, I modified your method of saving secondary backup files in the trash.

Create a new folder on the desktop and rename it "Trash alias". In the secondary backup Saving Preferences, select the "Trash alias" folder. Switching back to the Finder, throw the "Trash alias" folder out and then create an alias of the trash, which should be automatically called "Trash alias". Now create and save a file in Nisus, and check to make sure the secondary backup is safely stored in the trash.

By the way, I am an unregistered user... and am sending in my registration today. I agree that TrashMan is an excellent extension to System 7.
