Evernote 3.5 Beta keeps improving on its path to general availability. The latest release adds a number of new features, improves speed and stability, and gives you lots of things you’ve been asking for. Here’s a rundown.
Drag and drop
With this release, you can drag files onto the Evernote application icon to create new notes. Free users can drag images, audio and PDFs. Evernote Premium users can drop any file including Word docs and PowerPoint presentations. If you use a scanner with Evernote, set the scan destination to be Evernote.exe, and those scans will become notes automatically.
If you’re like me, then you like seeing those informational sync and clip pop-up messages. Some of you…well…you hate them. Now you get to choose. Keep them on, or turn them off. It’s your call. Just go to Tools > Options > Synchronization to change the setting.
