Today, Evernote for Mac (3.3) gets a bunch of new features, including a brand new Premium-only feature: account switching. Let’s take a look at all the new stuff.
New Premium Feature: Account Switching
Evernote for Mac now lets Premium users quickly switch between different accounts without having to sign out and sign back in. You’ll find the Add Account… feature under the Evernote menu.
As a Premium user, you’ll be able to switch between one Free account and as many Premium accounts as you like. Whenever you switch from one account to another, the Evernote app screen reloads and displays the other account with all the notes that had synched the last time you viewed it. There’s even a keyboard shortcut CMD+CTRL+A to quickly switch accounts.
After the first time you sign in, Evernote won’t ask you to enter your password. If you want, you can always sign out of your account once you’re done using it. This feature is great for families and classrooms where a single computer is shared among several people.
We’ve added a new option when sharing a single note. You can now post a note to LinkedIn. Access the LinkedIn integration from the sharing arrow in the note panel.
New keyboard shortcuts
We’ve added one new keyboard shortcut and made another one more useful.
- CMD+CTRL+K: This shortcut adds text strikethrough
- CMD+Shift+D: This shortcut adds a date into the body of a note, and now also into the title
You can now turn a bunch of lines into checkboxes at once. To do this, select all of the lines that you want to become checkboxes, then click on the checkbox option in the formatting toolbar.
And much more…
That’s not all. Here are even more features and capabilities that make this app a pleasure to use.
- The List View now has a tag column
- Activity Stream items are easier to click
- Numerous stability improvements for Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion
All of these improvements are in addition to loads of fixes and improvements. Let us know what you think.
Two notes to Mac App Store users
If you get your Evernote updates through the Mac App Store, then you’re getting two updates in one today. Check out all the other great features that are included in your update in our recent Mac update post.
Also, the Mac App Store version of Evernote complies with new Apple sandboxing requirements that change the way apps work with other installed applications and core system functions. We have been able to test a variety of scenarios, but it is possible that users on older versions of Mac OS X will experience changes in functionality.
