Trying to Indent Text

Tweet//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Another thing I love about Evernote is the ability to crop and annotate screenshots from within any note.  This was always available through a standalone companion app called <b>Skitch</b>, but the workflow was cumbersome before.  Now Skitch functionality is incorporated into the main editing functions of Evernote so you can annotate notes on the fly easily like I did with all the screenshots here (primarily the arrows and the pixelation to obscure sensitive data)     Another thing I love about Evernote is the ability to crop and annotate screenshots from within any note. &nbsp;This was always available through … Continue reading Trying to Indent Text

Testing Out Colored Text Boxes

  I’m in the habit of writing very long posts at my main blog, vsatips, which is why I’m always searching for good ways to get my text organized and presented in ways that make it easy and appealing for my readers (as posed to long and cluttered, my usual default!)

Recently I updated one of my webpages: Evernote Tips & Links and the Fujitsu ScanSnap Scanner. I wrote a segment about the Fujitsu scanner which I’ve been using for about a year now and absolutely love!

If you’re interested in the one I bought, go to the first link in the above paragraph where you can read about my scanner and … Continue reading ScanSnap Evernote Scanner is On Sale for Father’s Day
