Evernote Releases Presentation Mode : Multiple Uses

I am a HUGE fan of Evernote. (Over 16,700 notes and counting.) Most releases go buy and add worthwhile features. Evernote’s latest release for the Mac is an “update immediately… this is fantastic!” release.

Evernote 5.3.0 on the Mac now adds a “Presentation Mode”. This is a feature with multiple uses. I will focus on two of them in this post…


(1) Support for multiple monitors is now included. This feature lets you present your notes on one screen and take notes on another. Yes, this could have been done previously with a double click on a note to open it in its own window. Presentation mode is better. Try it. I bet you’ll love it. Press CMD-OPT-Enter to start the presentation on a second monitor.

(2) FOCUS! In addition to Evernote becoming your presentation tool of choice, the Presentation feature is useful for your personal work. One of the big “distractions” while we work are all the other items on our screen begging for our attention. Even if you are full screen on an Evernote or working through a list of items, you are best focused on one thing at a time. One click on the presentation icon and you are focused. And, with dual monitor support, you can keep the main point in front of you while adding notes.

I make a lot of phone calls in any given day. The presentation “focus” is useful when you are in a call and referencing Evernote notes as a part of the call. Simply click presentation, press the space bar to advance through a note that is larger than one screen, and use the right arrow to advance to the next Evernote note. Clean. Simple. Focused attention. I love it.

What about Evernote for Windows users? Evernote seems to lead with the Mac and then follow with their PC version getting the same features in the coming weeks (and sometimes months.)

Note: You need to be an Evernote Premium user to get the Presentation mode. (Less than $50 a year. It is worth it for this feature and the many other Premium features.)

You can read more about this great release on the Evernote blog. Night mode, laser pointer, and more are detailed here. Congrats to the Evernote team on a great and valuable release!

A new kind of Prophet… In fact, several of them… Internet Prophets

I am attending Steve Olsher’s “InternetProphetsLive” in Chicago. Brendon Burchard, Vishen Lakhiani – founder of Mind Valley, Jake Nickell – founder of threadless, Pam Hendrickson – former Tony Robbins leader, Mike Koenigs, Joel Comm, and more! Amazing list of speakers. And Lifebook is one of the sponsors of the event. What a privilege to be in the room with so many great marketing minds!

You need an extra dose of heartiness to be here this week as “the windy city” became “the flooded windy city.” Yet people have come from all over the country and all over the world to be in attendance. They have rented cars and driven when the major airports were shut down. Why? Call it a workout for your mind. Where do you have limiting beliefs? When in the presence of some of the best marketing minds in the world, what nuggets can you find and take home with you? (Short answer: more than enough to keep your brain spinning into the wee hours!)

I encourage you to start following all the speakers here on Twitter and Facebook. The list of speakers is at InternetProphetsLive.com.

Don’t Touch That Phone!

I was visiting with my daughter and son-in-law yesterday. They shared a creative approach to having personal time not get usurped by our technology devices.

We’ve all seen this happen… You get together with family or friends. And everyone is on their phones posting social media updates, texting, etc. and essentially not paying attention to the people they are with. How can this situation be turned to take advantage of the relationship opportunities right before us?

They recommend that everyone put their mobile phone face down in the middle of the table. The first one who cannot “resist the urge” and grabs their phone for any reason gets the bill for the dinner. Nice.

Here’s to real social interaction face-to-face. As Crosby, Stills and Nash would say, “love the one you’re with”!
