Today, we released an update to Evernote for Mac (version 1.5). The latest release adds some much-requested features and improvements. Here are some of the notable changes:
The Beta track
For the more adventurous souls among you, we now offer the option to join our Beta release track. By checking the box in Evernote preferences, you’ll get an update whenever we put out a beta release. Although this does mean that you’ll get access to more frequent updates and new features before the rest of the Evernote-using population, it also means that you’ll be trying a less stable build. This isn’t meant to be for everyone, but if you do try it you’ll be helping us improve Evernote. Thanks.
Our translation project is beginning to bear fruit. If your Mac is set to French, German, Italian, or Spanish, the Evernote interface will now show up in that language. The process of improving the text recognition is still ongoing. In fact, you can help us by submitting a handwriting sample here.
We recently learned that our Safari clipper was acting in ways unbefitting a friendly elephant–causing other toolbar items to disappear (1Password) or disappearing itself. In this update, we hope to have fixed the problem, though we’ve heard reports that some issues remain. We’ll keep at it.
And the rest…
- Added support for viewing of digital ink notes.
- Improved searching for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters.
- User’s Evernote email address added to the Account Info window.
- Improved support for importing large ENEX files.
- Fixed an issue which caused a pink error message to occasionally appear.
- Fixed an issue which resulted in a blank note appearing when merging notes.
- Fixed an issue related to searching for notes with words surrounded by punctuation.
