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.

Adam & Tonya Engst Honored in MacTech 25

Send Article to a Friend

Due no doubt in part to the votes cast by TidBITS and Take Control readers, we were pleased to see that not just Adam, but also Tonya, were included in the MacTech 25 list of influential people in the Macintosh technical community. Apart from its use of public voting, the MacTech 25 differs significantly from the MDJ Power 25 in honoring people outside Apple who influence the Macintosh world via their technical contributions. The end result thus included writers who explain technical topics or maintain sites deemed key to the technical community, system administrators who spread their knowledge through writing and speaking, and programmers who help other programmers.

MacTech chose not to rank the top vote getters, making for a flat list. Congratulations to everyone on the MacTech 25, which this year includes the following people (see the forthcoming August 2006 issue of MacTech for a full write-up of each person; if you don't currently subscribe, you can download a free PDF sampler of recent articles):
