NoteBook 2.1 Adds Syncing, Cornell Note-Taking System

NoteBook 2.1 Adds Syncing, Cornell Note-Taking System -- Circus Ponies Software has released NoteBook 2.1, a notable (heh!) upgrade to their information organizing tool (see "The Well Worn NoteBook" and "The Shiny New NoteBook" for my reviews of earlier versions). For new users, NoteBook 2.1 now includes the Starting Point system that provides pre-built templates for a variety of common usage scenarios. It also adds support for the Cornell Note-Taking System, a method of taking notes that divides the page into three areas for taking, analyzing, summarizing, and reviewing notes. Other enhancements include support for syncing to-do items with Microsoft Entourage, the capability to make to-dos synced to iCal be calendar appointments or regular to-do items, support for the LinkBack content linking technology promulgated by Nisus Software, improved uploading of HTML-exported notebooks to .Mac, support for SFTP and FTP uploading of HTML-exported notebooks, and creation of fully linked PDFs when exporting to PDF.
