Add Notes to Pre-existing Recordings in Pear Note

While most people think of Pear Note as a tool for recording notes live, it can be used to take notes on pre-existing recordings as well. If you have an audio or video recording that you'd like to take notes on in Pear Note, simply:

  1. Drag the audio/video file to Pear Note and import it into a new document.
  2. Hit play.
  3. Click the lock to unlock the text of the note.

Now you can take notes that will be synced to the recording, just as if you'd recorded them live.

Calling All Gift Suggestions!

Send Article to a Friend

Calling All Gift Suggestions! TidBITS has a holiday tradition of assembling reasonable Mac-oriented gift suggestions from readers. Usually, we collate these ideas, track down some details, add thoughts of our own, and publish the results in an article or even a special issue. This year, we thought we would open up the process to the TidBITS Talk mailing list, so you can see what others consider good gift material.

To participate, send a your gift idea to <tidbits-talk@tidbits.com>, whether it's something you want yourself or something you plan to give to someone else. Include a URL or other contact information for each suggestion, and limit yourself to one suggestion per message. Unique ideas are welcome, but please recommend only other people's products - self-promotion tends to detract from these efforts. You can keep up with the discussion via the URL below (the TidBITS Talk archive adds new messages once a day), or subscribe directly to the TidBITS Talk mailing list. Let the recommendations begin!
