Today, we’re adding a new feature to Evernote for Windows (version 4.5.2), which has been a part of Evernote for Mac for a little while: the Favorites Bar.
This little bar, which runs just above the note list, does some incredibly useful things. First, it lets you jump to parts of your account that you want to quickly access. For example, click on Web Clips and only web clips show up in the list. Or, click on Tags and choose a tag to filter your note list.
Searching through Notebooks and Tags
Speaking of tags, the Favorites Bar is a tagger’s best friend. Sometimes, finding the tag you want in a long list can be daunting. Not so with the Favorites Bar. Click on Tags and you can quickly filter your tag list by typing it into the text field. You can do the same for Notebooks, which is great if you have lots of them.
Pinning to the Favorites Bar
There’s one more powerful feature of the Favorites Bar: you can pin things to it. Have a note that you access a lot? Drag it to the Favorites Bar. Have a Saved Search that you run frequently? Drag it in. The same goes for notebooks, tags and just about anything else.
Try out the Favorites Bar, and let us know what you think. This update also includes lots of bug fixes, improvements to to-do items, new language support (Turkish, Thai and Malay), and more.
