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.

Version 5.1: A DragThing of Beauty

Send Article to a Friend

Version 5.1: A DragThing of Beauty -- TLA Systems's DragThing, a launcher and Dock replacement that we've been covering since its inception, has been upgraded to version 5.1. The big change here is that DragThing's docks are now documents: you can now open and close them individually, and they can be exported completely as XML. This makes things much easier when you develop a one-off or specialized dock that needn't be present all the time. You can also have "workspaces" (dock sets), read-only docks, and stationery docks. The Desktop Trash feature is also much more flexible, and there are many cosmetic and functional improvements and bug fixes. DragThing 5.1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar or better and is a 3.2 MB download. It costs $30; this is a free upgrade for DragThing 5 users. [MAN]
