Mac: Evernote for Mac recently got a few neat updates. Now you can mark up your notes with the company’s screenshot tool, Skitch, highlight text in your notes, and instantly view attached files.
Here’s the rundown of what’s new:
Skitch annotation: If your notes contain only images (such as a photo note), then clicking the new Skitch button will give you the option to add all those wonderful arrows, stamps, text and shapes overlays. Premium users can mark up entire notes that may contain text, images and files with Skitch; Evernote will first convert the note to a PDF file for the annotation.
Document preview: Instead of having to click on a file attached to your note to view the file, Evernote’s new Document Preview feature will display the contents of the file right within the note (rather like Finder’s Quick View). It will work with Microsoft Office and iWork documents, and you can do basic file operations on the attached documents, such as dragging them into an email or other app and saving them to disk. Premium users will be able to search within those attached docs too.
Highlighter: Finally, there’s a new highlighter that will add a bright yellow background to text you select within your note.
