Sometimes it’s the small features that can make all the difference. Today, Evernote for Mac gets one of these little things that we think you’ll really enjoy: a completely redesigned Menu Bar Helper that includes our new Quick Note functionality.

Create a note, any time
The new Quick Note feature lets you create a note at any time, no matter what you’re doing on your computer, by clicking the elephant in the menu bar at the top of your screen or using the keyboard shortcut Control-Command-N.
Quickest text notes ever
The simplest thing you can do is pop open Quick Note and start typing. Once you’re done with your thought, click Save to Evernote or Command-Return, then continue doing what you were doing. If you don’t save to Evernote, then your content will stay in the Quick Note window waiting for you to add more stuff.
Images, audio, attachments, and screenshots
Create audio notes and screenshots by clicking on the relevant icons in the Helper. You can also add images or attachments by simply dragging them onto the elephant icon in the menu bar. Every new item will be added to the same note until you save it to Evernote.
We love the Helper’s new functionality. It’s the perfect on-the-go complement to your normal Evernote use, and once you get the hang of the keyboard shortcuts, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it. Let us know what you think.
