Evernote 3.5 for Windows adds more clip and view options



Via the Evernote Blogcast (and the update notice I saw last night), Evernote 3.5 for Windows has gotten an update that, in addition to the usual widespread improvements, offers options for where to send your screen clips and how to view your notes.

Improved screen clipping

You can now choose whether to send your screen clips into Evernote, onto the desktop or to the clipboard. Here’s how it works. While selecting the area you wish to clip, you have three options:

  • Do nothing, which will send the clip into a new note in Evernote
  • Hold Shift, which will send the clip to your desktop
  • Hold CTRL, which will send the clip to your clipboard

Flexible note views

You can now choose to show or hide any combination of the three view panels: left panel, note list panel, and single note view. Customize your look from the View menu.

And more

  • Made significant improvements to Asian character search and highlighting
  • Added the ability to assign a destination notebook for clips under Tools>Options>General
  • Added the ability to set the created and modified date/time to current time
  • Added the ability to drag and drop tags onto notes
  • Improved text note thumbnails
  • Improved pasting text and images from Evernote into other applications
  • Resolved problem with live-editing PDF documents
  • Resolved issues with new note creation
  • Replaced spell checker with a more memory-efficient version that supports additional languages
  • Improved access to diagnostic information about the Evernote application

For screen clipping, I use ritePen, which already includes the clipboard and Evernote options, but does not yet offer an option to save to desktop. Mostly likely I can look forward to that in the next ritePen update.

    So far I like the new interface and look. As a heads up, I installed it new on 1 computer and updated on another. On both it tool a while (like 10 minutes without any real hoursglass or spinnning gizmo to prove your computer hasn’t frozen) to install some sort of .NET package/update from Microsoft. It didn’t hang or crash, but it was at the amount of time that makes most folks consider quitting the install/update.
