Today, Evernote for Mac (5.0.5) gets several great improvements to shortcuts, search and more. Let’s take a look.
Get Evernote for Mac »
Shortcuts are a great way to quickly jump to content that you frequently access simply by dragging a note, notebook, tag, or search into the Shortcuts area at the top of the Sidebar. As of this update, Shortcuts sync with the Evernote Service, which means that if you use Evernote for Mac on more than one computer (home and office), your shortcuts will go with you.
We know you’re wondering, and the answer is: yes, shortcuts are coming to other platforms soon. And when they do arrive, everything will be in sync.
Control Your Search
When you perform a search, you can now choose whether to search within only your notebooks or everything that you have access to, which may include Joined Notebooks and Business Notebooks (if you’re an Evernote Business user). You’ll be able to do this by clicking into the search bar and choosing a search option from the top of the drop down menu that appears.
Great Looking Evernote Clearly Notes
Evernote Clearly is our browser extension that lets you simplify webpages to create a beautiful online reading experience. If you don’t have time to finish reading the article or want to save it for later, you can always clip it directly into Evernote. For this update, we made those clips look better than ever inside of Evernote for Mac.
There are a bunch of other improvements.
- When in Expanded Card View, press ‘return’ on a selected note to open it
- Advanced feature: AppleScript can create checkboxes
- When viewing a note, a button appears on rollover near the notebook name to jump to that note’s notebook
We have also made sync more reliable, improved PDF printing, fixed issues with tags in Joined Notebooks, and added numerous other enhancements throughout the app.
