Fill in Gaps in Pear Note

If you ever find yourself zoning out during a meeting or class, only later to realize that you forgot to take notes for 20 minutes, Pear Note makes it easy to fill in those gaps. To do so:

  1. Open your Pear Note document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click on the last text you did type to jump to that point in the recording.
  4. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.
  5. Take notes on the part you missed.

Your new notes will be synced to the recording just as if you'd taken them live with the rest of your notes.

Apple Data Detectors 1.0.2

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Data Detectors 1.0.2 -- With Mac OS 8's contextual menu technology and the combination of Apple Data Detectors and Internet Address Detectors (ADD/IAD), you can highlight a block of text in almost any application, then choose actions for any URLs, email addresses, newsgroup names, or other particular items the text contains. The release of ADD/IAD 1.0.2 optimizes performance and adds actions for interacting with FileMaker Pro and QuarkXPress. Additionally, users can disable contextual menus in selected applications by choosing an item from the Help menu when the application is active. Although Apple steered developers away from Control-click combinations for years, Mac OS 8's contextual menus can still interfere with some programs. Some applications that implement their own contextual menus (such as BBEdit) may not offer the exclusion option, and some applications don't know how to handle a change to the Help menu. ADD/IAD 1.0.2 requires a PowerPC-based Mac and Mac OS 7.6 or higher, and is a 1.9 MB download. (You'll need DiskCopy 6.1 or Aladdin's ShrinkWrap 3.0 to access the disk image.) Information is available from Apple if you want to build your own actions using AppleScript. [JLC]
