Notebook 3.0 update
Circus Ponies Software has released the latest version of its organization application, Notebook 3.0. The update allows users to create diagrams or sketches on notebook pages. A new PDF annotation feature enables placing lecture slides and class notes directly into notebooks, where text, sketches and diagrams can then be added.
The program recognizes handwriting from a mouse or tablet, sitting material in a "Multidex" for reference. The Multidex allows searching by keyword or any remembered detail. Pre-built shapes and customization options, meanwhile, can be used for creating charts, graphs or other pictures.
Notebook 3.0 is available at $50 in a normal license, $30 for academic users, or $100 as a family pack.
