Today’s Evernote for Mac update (3.0.6) comes with a bunch of nice enhancements to checklists, tables and more. Plus, we’ve included a beautiful redesign of our note panel. Let’s take a look.
Redesigned note panel
In this update, we completely redesigned the note panel. The goals of the redesign were clarity and simplification. You’ll notice that the new layout is much more space-efficient. For example, we moved information about the note into the “i” button. We also made note sharing options much more prominent with the new, big share arrow.
In addition to saving space, the new layout is also easier to understand and use. The icons have all been updated, and we now treat dropdowns in a new, cleaner way.
Additionally, we added some intelligence into the headers. When you’re browsing through your notes, we show the date created and updated in the note header area. As soon as you start editing the note, the date fades away and becomes the formatting bar. If you want to edit the date, click on the “i.”
Creating checklists has never been easier. Now, the app will continue your checklist when you move to a new line. Start your checklist by clicking the checkbox icon in the format bar or by pressing CMD+SHIFT+T. After typing in your first item, hit return. The next line will also contain a checkbox. Hit return again without entering any text and the checkbox will disappear.
View multiple notes when in fullscreen mode
When you’re in full screen mode on OS X Lion, you can now double click on as many notes as you like and view each in its own window, all while Evernote remains in full screen in the background.
Tables also get an upgrade in this release. Now you can add or remove rows and columns in existing tables. To do this, right click on the table and select Tables from the menu.
And lots more
As always, in addition to the things you see, there are a ton of improvements under the hood. We have lots more to come. Enjoy.
