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.

Tune-Up Printing Bug

Tune-Up Printing Bug -- Geoff Bronner writes:

In the hoopla surrounding the release of Tune-Up 1.1 and its companion files one thing has gone unmentioned. The release of LaserWriter 7.1 with Tune-Up 1.0 introduced a bug that caused random PostScript errors when printing to Novell NetWare for Macintosh 3.01 queues. The release of LaserWriter 7.1.1 with Tune-Up 1.1 has not fixed this problem. [And there's no reason to expect this will be fixed in 1.1.1 as discussed below. -Adam]

Users at sites using Novell NetWare may get caught by surprise when the Installer that comes with Tune-Up 1.1 replaces their copy of LaserWriter 7.0 with 7.1.1 and everything stops printing.

The original bug in LaserWriter 7.1 was confirmed by a MacWEEK article (MacWEEK 10-Feb-92, pg. 5) but nothing else has been mentioned since then.

So be warned! If you are using NetWare for Mac and System 7 stay with LaserWriter 7.0.
