Today, Evernote for Windows gets several great new features, including audio note recording and playback, print preview, toolbar customization and more. Let’s take a look.
The latest Evernote for Windows includes new note type: Audio. Tap this option and a note will open with an audio recorder pinned to the top. When you’re ready, click Record to start. You can feel free to type as the audio records. The recorder will keep working even if the window goes out of focus.
Once you’re finished recording, click Save. This will place the recorded audio into the note. If you’d like to add another recording to the same note, click Record. You can do this as many times as you like until you hit your single note size limit.
This feature is just another way to create rich memories of meetings, lectures and interviews in Evernote: record what was said, snap a photo of the whiteboard to save what was written and type your notes to remember what you were thinking. Then, find all these memories later in one place.
Another great new audio capability in Evernote for Windows is the ability to replay recorded audio directly in the note. Each audio recording includes a small play button, allowing you to listen without having to launch an external player. You can even listen to a recording made in other versions of Evernote.
Customize the toolbar
We want to make it easy for you to personalize your Evernote experience. Now, you can customize your toolbar to show the buttons that you use most frequently. For example, create a dedicated Facebook button if that’s your preferred sharing method. To do this, right click on the toolbar and choose Customize. You can also rearrange your existing buttons and add separators between them.
We’ve added a Print Preview option, which shows you how notes will appear when printed. You can view a preview for single notes, as well as multi-selected notes. Preview is great for helping you gauge the number of pages associated with more complex notes, including web clips and notes containing large images. Access Print Preview from the File menu.
In addition to the updates above, we’ve also fixed a number of issues, improved the installation process and made the app more usable. There’s tons more on the way, stay tuned.
