[00:00:04.123] - [Instructor] Hi, this is Don McAllister
[00:00:05.600] and welcome to another edition of ScreenCastsOnline.
[00:00:09.571] Well, one thing we're not short of
[00:00:11.295] on both the Mac and iOS, is writing or note-taking apps.
[00:00:15.997] I've covered many in the past,
[00:00:17.338] and I've pretty much settled on Ulysses and Scrivener,
[00:00:20.231] as my main writing applications of choice.
[00:00:23.138] However, there's a new kid on the block,
[00:00:24.690] which I've had a large number of requests to check out.
[00:00:27.448] So this week, I'm going to be taking a look
[00:00:29.883] at Bear by Shiny Frog.
[00:00:32.506] Now, Bear brings some additional features
[00:00:34.350] to writing and note-taking apps,
[00:00:36.198] as well as being a potential replacement for Evernote.
[00:00:39.261] It's available on the Mac, iPhone, and iOS,
[00:00:41.739] but uses a fairly controversial business model.
[00:00:45.468] So let's take a look at Bear over on the Mac App Store.
[00:00:48.198] [Music]
[00:00:52.188] So this is Bear, across on the Mac App Store.
[00:00:54.713] It's been well received, actually.
[00:00:56.289] It hasn't been out that long.
[00:00:57.450] It's been in beta for quite a while,
[00:00:58.805] but it's now been released.
[00:01:00.012] You'll see there's quite a few five-star reviews.
[00:01:01.877] Most of the four and below reviews are actually
[00:01:06.001] due to it's business model.
[00:01:07.534] And that's the fact that it's a free application,
[00:01:09.932] both on the Mac and iOS,
[00:01:11.509] but there's some limitations in the free version.
[00:01:13.621] And to unlock those limitations,
[00:01:15.253] you have to take out a subscription.
[00:01:17.876] It's a subscription-based software application.
[00:01:20.671] Now the actual features that are restricted
[00:01:24.116] are access to such things as themes,
[00:01:26.577] such things as some advanced exporting features,
[00:01:29.789] but the important one is the ability to sync
[00:01:32.784] your notes between all your devices.
[00:01:34.573] That's only available in the subscription model.
[00:01:38.465] Now the subscription is either monthly or annual.
[00:01:40.418] And it's available as an in app purchase.
[00:01:42.617] It's one pound 29 or $1.49 USD per month
[00:01:47.155] or 13 pounds 99 or $14.99 USD per year.
[00:01:52.541] But the in app purchase does come with either a week
[00:01:54.486] or a month's free trial.
[00:01:56.229] Just cancel within the free trial period
[00:01:57.814] and you won't pay anything.
[00:01:59.108] It's probably worth mentioning as well,
[00:02:00.568] that the subscription, if you do decide
[00:02:02.028] to take a subscription out, covers all your devices.
[00:02:06.257] I fully appreciate that the fact
[00:02:08.507] that it's a subscription-based service,
[00:02:10.094] at least for the advanced features,
[00:02:11.789] will be an immediate turn off for some people.
[00:02:14.086] But what I thought I would do is
[00:02:15.839] to focus on the free version first
[00:02:17.856] and show you those features.
[00:02:19.165] And then I'll take out a subscription
[00:02:21.120] and you can have a look at some of the advanced features
[00:02:22.707] and see if you consider whether or not it's worth
[00:02:24.962] using the free model or going with the subscription.
[00:02:29.323] So let's start by taking a look at the free version
[00:02:31.791] of the app on the Mac.
[00:02:34.363] Let's go ahead and pop the App Store out of the way.
[00:02:36.857] I've already downloaded and installed Bear.
[00:02:39.741] So we'll bring that back up.
[00:02:41.459] And I haven't actually started to use it
[00:02:42.795] on this machine as of yet.
[00:02:44.130] So this is how it will look the first time you instal it.
[00:02:47.359] So couple of things to point out.
[00:02:48.463] First off, the UI, a standard three-column view.
[00:02:51.823] You have the Sidebar here.
[00:02:53.123] You can adjust the width of the Sidebar.
[00:02:56.339] You have the Notes List, so these are
[00:02:58.003] all the individual notes.
[00:02:59.500] Again this is configurable.
[00:03:01.286] You can bring that out, change the width.
[00:03:03.951] And then the Editor itself in this area.
[00:03:06.328] Now you can, if you want, remove the Sidebar
[00:03:08.423] and remove the Notes List.
[00:03:09.886] There's a little control down here.
[00:03:11.401] Enables you to just see the List and the Editor
[00:03:15.035] or just the Editor itself.
[00:03:16.929] You can also use the Control option.
[00:03:18.517] So Control + One, Control + Two, and Control + Three
[00:03:21.617] to do the same thing.
[00:03:22.540] Let's have all three on for now.
[00:03:24.443] Now what you actually see in the Notes List
[00:03:26.560] depends on what you have selected in the Sidebar.
[00:03:29.602] So currently we have all notes selected
[00:03:31.503] and by default you get these three notes,
[00:03:33.671] which are quite informative actually,
[00:03:35.589] explaining some of the basics of how to use Bear.
[00:03:38.580] There is a separate Trash option.
[00:03:41.036] So if you delete Notes they go into Trash
[00:03:43.563] and you can clear out the Trash
[00:03:44.396] or you can restore the notes.
[00:03:45.817] But there's also this option here.
[00:03:47.454] And you'll see it uses tags.
[00:03:48.917] And it uses tags very effectively
[00:03:50.551] as a way to organise all of your notes.
[00:03:54.694] So depending on which tag you display
[00:03:57.028] or you select in the Sidebar,
[00:03:58.725] it will actually display those notes in a list.
[00:04:01.186] And then, of course, if you select a single note
[00:04:03.207] in the list it appears in the Editor.
[00:04:05.477] But you'll notice there's a little,
[00:04:06.310] small disclosure triangle.
[00:04:08.087] If I click on there, we've got some of the tags here.
[00:04:10.389] We've got a tag about organising,
[00:04:11.817] a tag about the Bear Pro, and multi-word tag as well.
[00:04:16.043] And if you select these individual tags,
[00:04:18.130] you just see those individual notes in the list.
[00:04:20.725] Back to welcome, we see them all.
[00:04:22.180] I will actually go into tags in a lot more detail.
[00:04:24.315] It's one of the very powerful things within Bear.
[00:04:27.032] But we'll just go back up to all the notes.
[00:04:29.955] And let's select this first note.
[00:04:31.563] You'll see it's selected.
[00:04:32.519] I've got this red bar here.
[00:04:34.054] You'll see this is an hour old.
[00:04:36.077] As I said, I only just installed this new version
[00:04:38.490] of Bear on this demo machine.
[00:04:40.344] You can sort this Notes List as well.
[00:04:42.106] We'll look at sorting and a few more advanced features
[00:04:43.860] a little bit later on.
[00:04:45.326] But let's take a look at the Editor itself.
[00:04:47.251] So this is the note that's selected in the Notes List.
[00:04:50.187] See it's really nice.
[00:04:51.888] It's very, very attractive the way it's been put together.
[00:04:54.154] Some really nice fonts that you can select.
[00:04:56.408] It's fully Markdown compatible as well,
[00:04:58.538] so it's a plain text editor and uses Markdown formatting
[00:05:01.461] to create all the various attributes,
[00:05:03.859] such as headings, bold, etc., etc.
[00:05:07.290] Let's have a look at some of the controls
[00:05:09.348] that are within the Editor itself.
[00:05:10.788] And you can also have inline images, as well.
[00:05:13.216] I'll show you how to drag those in later.
[00:05:15.150] But let's have a look at some of these controls.
[00:05:16.858] We have this little information panel.
[00:05:18.971] And you can use Shift + Command + I to pop this out.
[00:05:21.141] It's got when it was last modified.
[00:05:22.843] The word count details.
[00:05:24.997] When it was last edited, of course,
[00:05:26.829] because this is the free version,
[00:05:28.091] it will only ever be on my MacBook Pro.
[00:05:30.403] It's not syncing at the moment.
[00:05:31.812] It's creation date.
[00:05:33.042] You can pin notes to the top of the notes list,
[00:05:35.400] if you want to.
[00:05:36.328] You can copy to the Clipboard.
[00:05:37.768] Now when you do copy to the Clipboard,
[00:05:39.102] in fact let's do that.
[00:05:39.935] Let's copy this note to the Clipboard.
[00:05:41.998] Okay that's now copied.
[00:05:43.062] We got this notification up at the top.
[00:05:44.653] If I go across to something like Text Editor.
[00:05:47.320] Let me go ahead and open Text Editor.
[00:05:49.100] I've not got it loaded, so we'll just open it from here.
[00:05:52.035] Text Edit.
[00:05:54.691] Let's do a new document.
[00:05:57.140] It's appeared off screen, so I'll just drag that back on.
[00:05:59.386] Let's have this in plain text.
[00:06:02.536] So if i do a Command + V,
[00:06:04.051] you'll see that it's actually pasted it all
[00:06:05.957] in nice Markdown format for me.
[00:06:08.283] If I want to copy to the Clipboard in another format,
[00:06:11.221] let me just, in fact I'll keep this window open.
[00:06:14.125] I'll just select all this and delete it.
[00:06:16.480] Go back to Bear.
[00:06:17.594] If I want to copy this in another format,
[00:06:19.491] I can Control or right click on the notes
[00:06:21.595] in the Notes List, say Copy As.
[00:06:24.180] So we've got Markdown, HTML, Plain Text, or Rich Text.
[00:06:27.592] So if I wanted HTML, click on there.
[00:06:30.537] Go back across to Text Edit.
[00:06:33.042] Command + V to paste in.
[00:06:35.024] And you'll see it's actually reformatted it
[00:06:36.993] into HTML for me.
[00:06:39.011] But we'll just close that down, and we'll Delete.
[00:06:44.239] Okay back across to my Info panel.
[00:06:46.781] So Copy to Clipboard, Copy link to note.
[00:06:49.217] You can link notes together.
[00:06:51.097] So you can use a reference of one note
[00:06:52.956] and embed it in another.
[00:06:54.421] In fact again let's do that.
[00:06:55.604] We may as well do some of these things
[00:06:56.691] as we're walking through the UI.
[00:06:58.310] If I say Copy link to note.
[00:07:00.777] Okay, Note link copied to Clipboard.
[00:07:02.390] If we go back over here and create a new note.
[00:07:07.147] And you'll see as I type,
[00:07:08.635] the first line is defaulting to a header formatting.
[00:07:13.434] Let's go into the body of the text.
[00:07:18.318] So here is a link to another note.
[00:07:19.791] If I do a Command + V, it pastes in the link
[00:07:22.440] to the Welcome to Bear note.
[00:07:25.119] And if I click on this, it takes me directly to that note.
[00:07:29.256] So you can start to organise your notes using tags.
[00:07:32.603] You can also link two notes inside Bear itself.
[00:07:36.428] It makes it very, very flexible, very powerful.
[00:07:38.542] We'll just do that again.
[00:07:39.636] So go to here.
[00:07:40.618] Click on Welcome to Bear.
[00:07:42.065] Take me directly to that note.
[00:07:44.599] Okay, I think I'll delete this.
[00:07:46.049] To delete this note swipe across, and we'll say Trash.
[00:07:50.959] So back to our Info panel.
[00:07:52.620] If I just select Welcome to Bear,
[00:07:54.171] let's do Shift + Command + I to pop out the Info panel.
[00:07:58.120] By the way, I can detach this if I want.
[00:08:00.607] If I just click on here, that's now a movable panel.
[00:08:03.099] So with a large display you could have that off to the side.
[00:08:05.755] Down at the bottom of our Info panel we have
[00:08:08.413] some export features.
[00:08:10.137] So you'll see some are locked.
[00:08:12.073] So PDF and HTML are locked.
[00:08:14.121] And if I swipe across, JPEG is locked as well, and DOCX.
[00:08:17.601] A JPEG is useful if you want to send
[00:08:19.975] a Bear note across to something like social media.
[00:08:22.879] If you just want to send an image of your note.
[00:08:24.935] But we have RTF unlocked as well.
[00:08:27.032] But there are slightly more export formats available
[00:08:29.045] to you actually, if you go into Markdown.
[00:08:32.424] So I can save my Markdown file anywhere
[00:08:34.257] within my file system.
[00:08:35.832] I can also export attachments as well, if I want.
[00:08:38.745] But if I click on this drop down,
[00:08:40.362] you see I can export in plain text and Markdown,
[00:08:43.076] as a Text Bundle, as a Bear Note, and as RTF format as well.
[00:08:47.680] Rich Text Format.
[00:08:49.151] And these are four that are currently locked.
[00:08:50.924] Of course, HTML you can Copy As.
[00:08:54.018] So you can use the Copy As mechanism I showed you before
[00:08:55.909] if you want to create an HTML document.
[00:08:58.064] But they're the four formats that are locked
[00:09:00.239] until you go for the Pro version.
[00:09:01.844] I'm just gonna go ahead and say Cancel to that.
[00:09:03.823] If you wanted to go straight to RTF,
[00:09:05.876] of course you can do it from here as well.
[00:09:08.370] Okay, let me close down the Info panel.
[00:09:11.409] Now below the Info panel icon we have a Share icon.
[00:09:15.064] So I can share my notes with Mail,
[00:09:17.562] Messages, Notes, Reminders, etc.
[00:09:20.112] I set some more up as well if I want.
[00:09:21.766] The beauty of this is that if you do spend the time
[00:09:24.311] in creating a really nicely formatted note
[00:09:27.466] and you send it across to, for instance, Mail,
[00:09:30.043] it will actually send it across
[00:09:31.645] with all the formatting intact and links, etc.
[00:09:34.392] That's a really nice way if you want
[00:09:35.876] to create Mails using Markdown,
[00:09:38.021] you can actually get them across into Mail,
[00:09:40.145] very, very easily.
[00:09:41.213] I'll say, Don't Save to that.
[00:09:43.712] Okay below the Share icon we have a Trash icon
[00:09:46.562] that will send it across to the Trash bin.
[00:09:48.942] In fact, let's trash this one here.
[00:09:51.274] That's now gone.
[00:09:52.208] If I go across to Trash,
[00:09:54.140] I can empty the Trash from the Bear option
[00:09:56.543] in the menu, Empty Trash.
[00:09:58.504] Or if I want to put back individual notes,
[00:10:00.813] I can just say Restore,
[00:10:02.897] and that will put it back in its original location.
[00:10:05.318] So there's back to my Welcome to Bear note.
[00:10:09.242] So now let's take a look at creating some new notes.
[00:10:12.146] And we'll look at how to style a note.
[00:10:14.161] If I go ahead and just create a new note at this level.
[00:10:17.461] So we've got here A wonderful new note.
[00:10:18.972] Keep calm and write something.
[00:10:20.599] So over here I've got my Editor
[00:10:22.517] with the flashing cursor edge to go.
[00:10:24.291] So again, the first line is usually gonna be a heading,
[00:10:27.205] so it's defaulted to the heading formatting.
[00:10:29.196] I'll just give it a title.
[00:10:31.947] And then hit Return, and we're into the body of the note.
[00:10:34.233] Now as far as formatting is concerned,
[00:10:36.098] if I actually go down here.
[00:10:38.206] See we have this little pen.
[00:10:40.784] This is the style sheet.
[00:10:42.422] I can actually detach this if I want.
[00:10:44.371] With being new to this,
[00:10:45.905] I could actually drag this across here,
[00:10:47.611] and I could have that just as a permanent reminder
[00:10:50.195] of what's available to me.
[00:10:52.168] Of course, I could do Control + Three,
[00:10:54.660] and that just gives me my note in what they call Focus mode.
[00:10:57.779] Let me just line that up.
[00:10:59.637] Just my OCD, snapping into effect there.
[00:11:02.621] A bit more, there we go.
[00:11:04.552] So let me go ahead and just type in some text.
[00:11:07.328] So to format text you can either select text
[00:11:09.936] and apply the formatting to it
[00:11:11.338] or you can switch on and off formatting as you type.
[00:11:14.065] So, for instance, if i wanted to change demonstrate to bold,
[00:11:16.970] just highlight the word, Command + B, will turn it to bold.
[00:11:21.185] If I wanted to change formatting to italics.
[00:11:23.701] Again select formatting, Command + I,
[00:11:25.954] switches it to italics.
[00:11:27.998] Even though I'm using Markdown to apply this formatting,
[00:11:31.323] we can actually still see a true representation
[00:11:33.293] of what it's gonna look like
[00:11:34.611] when it's exported or printed out.
[00:11:38.819] I can change headings very easily.
[00:11:40.411] So this heading, if I want it to be a Heading 2,
[00:11:43.174] it's Option + Command + Two.
[00:11:46.480] Heading 3 is Option + Command + Three.
[00:11:48.653] Or Option + Command + One, to put it back to Heading 1.
[00:11:52.229] But we want two, so Option + Command + Two.
[00:11:54.701] To create a bulleted list, very straightforward.
[00:11:56.894] If I go ahead and just start typing actually,
[00:12:00.001] if I just put an asterisk and space.
[00:12:07.759] And just Return, will continue the list.
[00:12:12.186] Now something different, which isn't part
[00:12:13.702] of the standard Markdown formatting is
[00:12:16.601] the ability to create Todos.
[00:12:18.890] See over here, in the Style panel,
[00:12:20.533] I can actually do Command + T to create a Todo.
[00:12:24.852] So we've now got a Todo list.
[00:12:34.397] And these are in fact checkable.
[00:12:36.970] Okay and as you check them they get crossed through.
[00:12:38.837] Now when I come to show you a search later on,
[00:12:41.381] we'll actually be able to search for Todos.
[00:12:44.699] Both completed Todos and Todos that are remaining as well.
[00:12:48.020] So you can search through all your notes
[00:12:49.092] and find out all your outstanding Todos,
[00:12:51.272] or Todos that have been completed.
[00:12:54.541] Now to come out of the Todo list,
[00:12:55.870] we just hit Return once, and twice.
[00:12:58.844] That stops the Todo list.
[00:13:00.044] And then another Return takes me to a new line.
[00:13:03.248] Let me show you how to put images, inline images,
[00:13:06.131] into your notes.
[00:13:07.385] Pretty straightforward.
[00:13:08.511] If you go across to the Finder.
[00:13:10.333] Now this is actually my Photos folder,
[00:13:13.956] because I'm using iCloud drive,
[00:13:15.602] I have some locally on the machine,
[00:13:17.050] also some in iCloud drive.
[00:13:18.797] Just a word of warning, you do need
[00:13:20.527] to have the images locally on your machine.
[00:13:22.652] If you try and drag an iCloud drive image in
[00:13:25.754] you'll just get a file reference.
[00:13:27.250] So let me just go ahead and drag this one of the moon.
[00:13:30.553] Let me do that again, if I pick it up properly this time.
[00:13:32.721] Whoops.
[00:13:34.479] There we go, drag that across.
[00:13:35.917] I can actually specify which line I want it to go in.
[00:13:38.968] Release, and there it is.
[00:13:41.122] So there's my image of the moon.
[00:13:42.421] Now that's a full size image.
[00:13:43.979] If I want to show thumbnails,
[00:13:45.447] if I go to the View option up here,
[00:13:47.421] I can say Show Images As Thumbnails.
[00:13:49.512] I just get a small thumbnail there,
[00:13:51.413] if it's taking up a bit too much room.
[00:13:54.104] Now as well as images, you can also insert file attachments.
[00:13:57.932] And again you can search for files later on as well.
[00:14:00.545] If I just go back across to the Finder,
[00:14:02.297] I actually have another window here.
[00:14:04.953] A search window where I've been searching for PDFs.
[00:14:07.127] So if I want this PDF to go in,
[00:14:08.507] again I can just drag that across,
[00:14:11.440] and decide where I want it, let's say there.
[00:14:13.558] Let go, and there's my PDF image.
[00:14:16.075] And I can select that, double click.
[00:14:19.214] It opens up in Quick View for me.
[00:14:21.040] I can Open with Preview, etc.
[00:14:22.750] But we'll leave that in as it was.
[00:14:24.200] Okay, so let me go ahead, we'll close this panel down.
[00:14:27.269] We'll close the Finder down as well.
[00:14:30.245] And let's put this back to as it was.
[00:14:33.674] And what we will do, oh there's a nice new invoice
[00:14:36.099] in from Apple,
[00:14:38.882] is we'll do Control + One to get everything back.
[00:14:42.163] So there's my new note.
[00:14:43.757] Let's have a look at tags.
[00:14:45.351] Because I wanted to show you how tags work.
[00:14:47.190] A very clever, very well implemented way of adding tags.
[00:14:51.466] So in this note that we have here,
[00:14:53.483] there's no specific place where you need to insert tags.
[00:14:56.272] They can be inserted anywhere.
[00:14:57.871] The only thing with a tag is that it's a word,
[00:15:00.498] or multiple words, we'll look at multi-word tags as well,
[00:15:03.502] starting with a hash.
[00:15:05.169] So if I wanted to I could just go here.
[00:15:08.866] Say this is to do with projecta.
[00:15:10.708] I could just put in #ProjectA.
[00:15:15.359] Hit Return, and that now becomes a tag.
[00:15:18.592] And if you notice across, over in the Sidebar,
[00:15:21.215] I've got this new projecta tag.
[00:15:23.598] Now you'll notice that although I've used
[00:15:25.347] an uppercase and uppercase here,
[00:15:27.852] all your tags will be in lowercase.
[00:15:30.100] So it doesn't matter what case you use,
[00:15:31.477] in the tag itself, in the Sidebar,
[00:15:34.034] they're always going to be lowercase.
[00:15:36.626] So let's create a new note.
[00:15:39.887] Alright, let's say this is going
[00:15:40.720] to be part of projecta as well.
[00:15:42.245] Again, just #projecta.
[00:15:48.680] Hit Return, put in my text.
[00:15:52.208] Okay, and now, if I go across to projecta,
[00:15:54.629] we should see two notes.
[00:15:56.163] And there we are.
[00:15:56.996] There's the new note that includes projecta
[00:15:59.311] and also this new note as well.
[00:16:01.441] If I go back to all my notes,
[00:16:03.800] and if I want to quickly get to other notes with projecta,
[00:16:07.313] and I can actually click here,
[00:16:09.100] and that will philtre out and just show me
[00:16:10.643] the projecta notes in the Notes List.
[00:16:15.193] But, of course, the beauty of tags is that
[00:16:16.908] you don't have to have just a single tag on a single note.
[00:16:20.524] You can have multiple tags and reference them
[00:16:22.413] in different ways.
[00:16:23.474] One of the real benefits of tags.
[00:16:25.937] Again, they don't need to go next to each other.
[00:16:28.019] They can be somewhere else in the text.
[00:16:29.570] Let's say this was to with the budget.
[00:16:31.800] We'll just do #budget.
[00:16:35.924] Hit Return.
[00:16:36.848] And now I've got a separate note, here we go.
[00:16:39.292] Or rather, a separate tag across here.
[00:16:41.358] And I can see all my notes connected with budget,
[00:16:44.638] all my notes connected with projecta.
[00:16:47.854] Now that's all well and good.
[00:16:49.043] But what if I'm working on multiple projects
[00:16:51.146] and I have notes on multiple budgets?
[00:16:53.420] For instance, if I go back up to notes,
[00:16:55.692] if I create a new note.
[00:16:58.939] And let's say this is to do with projectb.
[00:17:00.859] So I put a hash in, hit Return.
[00:17:05.038] Put some text in.
[00:17:06.956] And this all supposed to do with a budget.
[00:17:08.779] So I can hit #budget.
[00:17:12.601] Okay, so now, I've got a single tag here,
[00:17:16.005] which gives me both reports connected with budgets.
[00:17:19.392] This one's projectb, this one's projecta.
[00:17:22.232] I can go to projecta.
[00:17:24.259] And I can see all my reports here.
[00:17:26.667] And go to projectb, and I can see my report.
[00:17:30.071] What if I want to see everything connected with projecta
[00:17:32.893] that's to do with the budget?
[00:17:34.951] See, at the moment I can't,
[00:17:36.563] and if I go to budget, I see both projects.
[00:17:39.283] Well the way you can get around this
[00:17:40.465] is by using a subtag.
[00:17:43.134] And the way we would do a subtag,
[00:17:45.083] let's go to, well let's go to this one here.
[00:17:48.071] So this is projectb.
[00:17:49.723] I've assigned it a tag of budget,
[00:17:51.697] but I can also assign it a tag
[00:17:53.368] if I go Command, and get the hash, projectb/budget.
[00:18:01.116] Hit Return.
[00:18:02.283] And now over in the Sidebar, there we go,
[00:18:04.065] for projectb, I've got this disclosure triangle.
[00:18:06.592] If I go down, I've got projectb,
[00:18:09.390] I've also got budget as well.
[00:18:11.010] If I want to see just those notes connected
[00:18:14.078] with my budget for projectb, I can select that.
[00:18:17.371] And because it's got this subtag in, projectb/budget,
[00:18:22.087] I can see it separately from all the others.
[00:18:24.637] Now here's another little trick as well.
[00:18:25.995] Let's say I want to carry on and create another note
[00:18:28.667] that's connected with projectb/budget.
[00:18:31.069] All I need to do, is while I have this selected
[00:18:33.856] in the Sidebar, if I click on here,
[00:18:35.950] you'll see automatically it's put in
[00:18:37.819] that tag for me, projectb/budget.
[00:18:40.324] So I can start typing.
[00:18:43.994] And I know with confidence now,
[00:18:45.754] that this is going to appear whenever I go to projectb.
[00:18:49.629] It's gonna appear here, but also if I go to budget,
[00:18:51.678] it's gonna appear as well.
[00:18:54.136] So by using tags, lots of different tags,
[00:18:57.874] and using tags with subtags,
[00:18:59.613] you can organise your notes very effectively.
[00:19:01.871] The only thing I would say though,
[00:19:03.325] is that you're only allowed to go down one level.
[00:19:05.971] So you can't have projecb/budget slash something else.
[00:19:09.603] At the moment, at this release anyway,
[00:19:11.062] it's just one level of subtag.
[00:19:23.253] For instance, this one here is
[00:19:24.086] Everyday Lentil and Spinach Dal.
[00:19:25.913] Now I could if I wanted to, if I just copy that.
[00:19:29.361] Let's say I want to put the tag in here, just below.
[00:19:33.372] Okay, it doesn't really matter where the tag goes,
[00:19:34.977] but just for consistency.
[00:19:36.373] If I paste that in, could just put a hash at the beginning.
[00:19:41.375] But what happens is it just picks up Everyday.
[00:19:44.031] This is a space.
[00:19:45.297] So I've actually got a tag here called everyday.
[00:19:47.491] Which isn't really very useful.
[00:19:48.778] So what I can do, is if I go across to here,
[00:19:53.483] and put a hash at the end,
[00:19:56.482] it actually picks up the spaces as well.
[00:19:58.192] And now, for our tags, if I just open that up,
[00:20:00.734] we've got everyday lentil and spinach dal.
[00:20:03.656] So I could, as well, if I wanted to put in a recipe.
[00:20:06.032] This is a recipe.
[00:20:07.328] So again #recipe.
[00:20:11.802] And now I've got a tag for recipe.
[00:20:13.257] But again I have the problem that this recipe tag
[00:20:15.269] isn't linked to this tag here.
[00:20:17.885] So ideally, what I wanted to do,
[00:20:20.355] if I go back up to this tag,
[00:20:23.799] if I just type in recipe here
[00:20:26.565] and put a slash.
[00:20:29.837] That should, yep, there we go.
[00:20:31.312] If we look across on the side, I've now got recipe here.
[00:20:34.056] If I click that down, I've got
[00:20:35.594] my everyday lentil and spinach dal.
[00:20:37.834] So I can do that with this one here.
[00:20:39.201] So again, I'll just copy this bit.
[00:20:42.461] Command + C, Command + V.
[00:20:45.073] Hash.
[00:20:47.474] Recipe.
[00:20:49.867] Slash, and then at the end of the string, another hash.
[00:20:56.110] And that's now the ultimate vegan blt.
[00:21:00.009] So if I just quickly do that for all the other recipes.
[00:21:03.365] So that's all my recipes categorised using tags.
[00:21:06.770] And you can see across on the Sidebar,
[00:21:08.731] I've got my recipe tag,
[00:21:10.242] and then all my recipes here.
[00:21:11.917] And I can quite easily tidy up my Sidebar,
[00:21:13.694] just by clicking on that small disclosure triangle.
[00:21:16.804] Now, a couple of things to notice here.
[00:21:18.439] I've currently got, by default,
[00:21:19.960] my sort order in my List.
[00:21:22.047] My Notes List is in a modification time.
[00:21:25.347] So this was modified 45 seconds ago.
[00:21:27.677] These are minutes, two minutes, etc.
[00:21:29.678] I can change that.
[00:21:30.819] Also I could change the sort order over here as well.
[00:21:33.778] Now the sort order for both the List and for the Sidebar
[00:21:36.582] is in Preferences.
[00:21:37.952] So if I go to Preferences.
[00:21:39.757] There we go, so Notes List Sorting.
[00:21:41.797] Currently by Modification Date,
[00:21:43.311] I can change it to Creation Date or Title.
[00:21:45.794] And as I change these, in fact, let's change that to Title.
[00:21:49.157] I can change A to zed or zed to A.
[00:21:52.096] But we'll put that back to Modification Date.
[00:21:54.573] And Tags List Sorting, again,
[00:21:56.658] by Title or by the Number of Notes.
[00:21:58.760] So if you want the tags with the most number of notes
[00:22:01.393] to appear at the top you can sort that as well.
[00:22:03.697] But we'll leave that as title.
[00:22:05.593] Okay, I'll close that down.
[00:22:07.219] Now I could, of course, spend a lot more time
[00:22:09.943] sort of tidying up my notes here.
[00:22:11.965] I could perhaps drag some images of the recipes in.
[00:22:14.909] I could create additional tags.
[00:22:16.660] I might want to set up tags for say recipes
[00:22:18.779] for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner.
[00:22:20.532] I could tag ingredients as well.
[00:22:22.466] And you don't have to retype things,
[00:22:23.740] you can actually just go in,
[00:22:25.305] if I wanted to find or set up a tag for jackfruit,
[00:22:28.343] in the body of the text here,
[00:22:30.084] all I need to do is just insert a hash.
[00:22:32.245] And that automatically becomes a jackfruit tag.
[00:22:35.673] It will appear over here.
[00:22:37.165] I could say, ingredients/jackfruit
[00:22:40.036] and sort all my ingredients in an ordered list.
[00:22:43.440] And don't forget I can tap on these as well
[00:22:45.632] and that will give me a philtre immediately
[00:22:47.817] of those particular notes with that particular tag.
[00:22:52.191] But let's just go back to recipe.
[00:22:54.820] Okay, that's probably enough for tags.
[00:22:56.374] Let's move on to something different.
[00:22:59.628] Okay, let's take a look a searching within Bear.
[00:23:02.812] And it's probably worth pointing out,
[00:23:04.126] I'm still using the free version at this point,
[00:23:06.423] I still haven't upgraded to the Pro version,
[00:23:08.315] so I'm still missing sync, some export formats,
[00:23:12.076] and access to some themes.
[00:23:14.136] Everything else you've seen is
[00:23:16.368] fully available in the free version.
[00:23:18.174] So let's have a quick look at search.
[00:23:20.244] Okay, lots of ways to do searching.
[00:23:22.468] As you might imagine, if I just go to Search Notes,
[00:23:24.544] if I just type in some words
[00:23:26.519] it will find those particular notes for me.
[00:23:29.069] So if I'm sort of looking for recipes,
[00:23:31.142] say with ginger and beans.
[00:23:35.633] Okay it's found two.
[00:23:36.755] So if I just click on here,
[00:23:37.588] so that one has ginger and beans in,
[00:23:39.331] and that one also has ginger and beans.
[00:23:41.496] I'm currently at the notes level,
[00:23:42.656] so it's searching all my notes.
[00:23:43.873] You can search at the tag level,
[00:23:45.977] if you want to bring your search into a certain tag range,
[00:23:49.698] just by clicking on the tag range itself.
[00:23:51.662] I'll just search all my notes for now.
[00:23:53.722] And you can search for specific strings as well.
[00:23:55.956] So if you put quotation marks in, how to...
[00:24:02.089] I'm sure one of my recipes has that string in it.
[00:24:04.173] And there we go, yep.
[00:24:05.087] There's the string down there.
[00:24:07.607] But there are also things called triggers.
[00:24:09.373] Now if you remember before,
[00:24:10.472] we looked at setting up Todo lists.
[00:24:12.321] You can actually search for
[00:24:13.580] either completed or uncompleted Todos.
[00:24:16.321] So to do that, I just use the at symbol.
[00:24:19.111] And just type in todo.
[00:24:21.557] And that shows me all those notes
[00:24:23.433] that have uncompleted Todos,
[00:24:25.971] like this one here, Arrange Meeting.
[00:24:27.916] And these have three uncompleted Todos.
[00:24:30.563] So if I just close that down again.
[00:24:33.274] If I wanted to search for Todos connected with a meeting,
[00:24:35.853] I could again just say @todo meeting.
[00:24:43.509] So just the one note there.
[00:24:45.264] If I actually click that as done, and close that down.
[00:24:49.638] If I now say done.
[00:24:54.324] Okay it finds that note with the done Todo.
[00:24:58.073] So again I could put another search term in here as well.
[00:25:01.478] So pretty neat.
[00:25:02.311] There are some other triggers as well.
[00:25:03.555] Things such as untagged.
[00:25:08.749] So everything I've got is tagged.
[00:25:11.633] So I best show you that works, actually hadn't I.
[00:25:14.294] So let's create a new note.
[00:25:17.942] Okay, so that's untagged.
[00:25:19.614] So if I go to here and do the same trigger.
[00:25:22.793] Now there are other such triggers,
[00:25:23.762] you can find notes with code snippets in,
[00:25:26.009] with files in, with images in, and with attachments.
[00:25:29.453] All by using the at command.
[00:25:32.059] For this section I've come across
[00:25:33.097] to the website.
[00:25:35.981] Clicked on the FAQ link,
[00:25:37.553] and I'm actually gonna show you the browser extensions.
[00:25:40.339] There are browser extensions for Safari,
[00:25:42.338] for Chrome, and for Firefox.
[00:25:43.896] And this enables you to take either full webpages
[00:25:47.148] or clippings from webpages and put them directly into Bear.
[00:25:50.759] So I'm just gonna show you Safari.
[00:25:52.569] So if I go to the Safari extension gallery.
[00:25:56.258] There's Bear, I'm gonna instal it in Safari.
[00:25:59.656] Okay it's appeared up at the top.
[00:26:01.264] Before I do anything, though, let me just go
[00:26:03.222] to Preferences in Safari and go to Bear.
[00:26:07.005] Okay, couple of things.
[00:26:08.636] Default tags.
[00:26:09.656] So you can set up some default tags.
[00:26:12.121] For instance, they give you an example here of web,toread.
[00:26:15.529] So if I want to have say clippings and say web.
[00:26:22.742] Now some important things to tell you.
[00:26:24.654] Don't use any spaces in here,
[00:26:27.003] either before or between those entries here,
[00:26:29.409] otherwise it will screw up the tags.
[00:26:31.312] You can import images.
[00:26:32.357] You can also append a URL to the note as well
[00:26:34.888] for the website that you actually clip from.
[00:26:37.406] So let me close this down.
[00:26:39.119] I've found that it's best to actually close Safari down
[00:26:41.411] and to quit Bear as well.
[00:26:43.457] And then when we restart, everything should be fine.
[00:26:45.702] So if I close that down.
[00:26:47.471] And we'll start Bear up again.
[00:26:50.468] And we'll start Sarafi up again.
[00:26:55.573] Okay let's go to a website.
[00:26:57.283] Let's go to BBC website.
[00:27:03.177] And let's go to Vegetable rationing hits UK supermarkets.
[00:27:08.778] So if I want to snap this or clip
[00:27:10.333] this entire webpage to Bear, I just click on here.
[00:27:14.158] Do you want to allow this page to open in Bear?
[00:27:15.310] We'll say allow.
[00:27:17.807] Okay and there's my webpage.
[00:27:21.587] And nicely formatted.
[00:27:22.946] If I just go back to Safari.
[00:27:25.187] Let's just do a clipping.
[00:27:27.277] So if I just want this paragraph, say,
[00:27:30.866] or these few paragraphs.
[00:27:32.365] Again, select it.
[00:27:34.118] Click on here, say Allow.
[00:27:37.111] And you'll notice down at the bottom
[00:27:38.001] I've got a link to the original webpage
[00:27:39.605] and my two tags clipping and web.
[00:27:42.492] So if want to see all my clippings,
[00:27:43.980] I can just click on here and see them in a single tag.
[00:27:48.903] Now this might be useful if you are
[00:27:50.074] considering migrating away from Evernote.
[00:27:52.292] This is a potential Evernote replacement.
[00:27:55.242] You can also import from Evernote as well.
[00:27:57.753] Let's have a go at that.
[00:27:59.077] So if I just pop Bear down out of the way for now.
[00:28:02.305] And we'll close Safari.
[00:28:03.931] Let's go ahead and open Evernote.
[00:28:07.232] Now this is just my demo version of Evernote.
[00:28:08.985] There's not many notes in here.
[00:28:10.699] In fact I just have two Notebooks,
[00:28:12.313] one called Business and one called Family.
[00:28:14.295] When you do export your notes,
[00:28:15.879] it doesn't export the Notebook location.
[00:28:19.282] So if you want to keep your Notebook location
[00:28:21.143] or to tag them as Notebooks
[00:28:23.056] when you bring them across into Bear,
[00:28:25.176] you need to create tags for the Notebooks.
[00:28:27.248] So this one here, Meeting Notes,
[00:28:28.450] that's in my Business Notebook.
[00:28:30.033] So I would create a business tag.
[00:28:32.971] And then these ones here.
[00:28:35.009] This is in my Family Notebook,
[00:28:36.621] so I create a tag called family, etc.
[00:28:40.731] If I wanted to do them all, if I remember,
[00:28:42.921] we just select all the documents,
[00:28:45.282] these are all in my Family Notebook.
[00:28:48.194] And then I can just tag them from here.
[00:28:53.055] Okay, so we should get that information across
[00:28:55.398] when we export them.
[00:28:56.980] So, I mean, some of these have got PDFs in,
[00:28:59.498] some have just got images.
[00:29:01.399] I think one down here at the bottom has got some checklists,
[00:29:04.650] so we'll see how they come across.
[00:29:06.501] But basically, I'm gonna export everything.
[00:29:09.187] I could export them one by one or in small groups,
[00:29:11.390] but I'll just do Command + A to select them all.
[00:29:13.738] I'll go to File and Export Notes.
[00:29:19.617] Okay, I'm going to save them on my Desktop.
[00:29:23.954] Evernote XML, include tags for each note.
[00:29:26.422] That's all fine, we'll say Save.
[00:29:30.016] Say OK, just the 10 notes.
[00:29:32.403] Close Evernote down.
[00:29:33.236] There's my enex file.
[00:29:35.339] Back into Bear.
[00:29:38.070] We'll say File, Import Notes.
[00:29:40.468] You can import from Vesper as well,
[00:29:41.879] which is the text application
[00:29:43.513] from John Gruber and his friends.
[00:29:46.756] But we'll go ahead just say Import Notes.
[00:29:52.514] Alright, what I need to do now is navigate to the Desktop.
[00:29:54.998] There's My Notes.enex.
[00:29:56.560] Keep original creation and modification date.
[00:29:58.903] Use first line as title.
[00:30:00.465] Use file name as title.
[00:30:02.022] So these are for text files,
[00:30:03.232] Markdown files, and text bundles.
[00:30:05.202] So we'll not worry about that.
[00:30:06.681] I will keep the original creation
[00:30:07.752] and modification date, though.
[00:30:09.183] So we'll go ahead and say Import Notes.
[00:30:12.988] Okay, 10 notes imported.
[00:30:18.103] Across on the side, there's family.
[00:30:20.488] So these are my notes from the Family Notebook.
[00:30:23.359] So there's my image, there's my PDF.
[00:30:27.173] Double click to open it up, yep, that's my PDF.
[00:30:29.802] Another image, another image.
[00:30:33.986] PDF, 1Password Emergency Kit.
[00:30:36.972] Sample document, Test Note.
[00:30:40.350] Fantastic, it's actually brought
[00:30:41.398] in the Todos across from Evernote.
[00:30:43.639] And these are clickable Todos here in Bear.
[00:30:46.710] So that's successful.
[00:30:48.251] And the other Notebook was this one here, business.
[00:30:52.051] With just some Meeting Notes with a PDF.
[00:30:54.570] So the import process seems to be fairly robust
[00:30:56.455] and very straightforward.
[00:30:59.293] So that's a run down of most of the features
[00:31:00.837] on the free version of Bear for the Mac.
[00:31:03.065] I think at this point, before we look at the iPad,
[00:31:05.082] is we'll actually upgrade to the Bear Pro version.
[00:31:08.257] We'll take out the free trial.
[00:31:09.843] And then when I go across to the iPad,
[00:31:11.780] we'll actually get the full functionality on the iPad.
[00:31:14.241] But everything I've shown you up to date on the Mac
[00:31:16.060] has been part of the free version.
[00:31:18.088] So let's go ahead and do a subscription.
[00:31:21.026] So if I go to Preferences.
[00:31:22.876] The things that you can't get to are Themes.
[00:31:25.267] So there's just the one theme here.
[00:31:27.103] You need take out the subscription to unlock these themes.
[00:31:29.743] The Editor, you can actually change your font,
[00:31:32.096] font size, line height, etc.
[00:31:34.267] Four different fonts here in the free version.
[00:31:36.750] But to get to the Bear Pro, we go to here.
[00:31:39.742] Okay, this is upgrade to Bear Pro.
[00:31:42.476] So a monthly subscription or a yearly subscription.
[00:31:44.956] A one-week free trial or one-month free trial.
[00:31:46.968] Let's go with the one-week free trial.
[00:31:52.640] So I'll just authenticate using
[00:31:53.645] my fingerprint reader on my Mac.
[00:31:58.243] Subscribe to Bear Pro, we'll start with a free trial
[00:32:00.431] lasting seven days, after which we'll be charged
[00:32:02.404] one pounds 29 on a one-month basis.
[00:32:05.004] So I say Continue.
[00:32:08.064] And confirmed.
[00:32:09.122] So pretty smooth.
[00:32:10.845] Very, very easy to do.
[00:32:12.529] And say OK.
[00:32:14.743] And now we should see, we give it a second, there we go.
[00:32:18.411] Your purchase was successful.
[00:32:19.948] Alright, so these themes are now available to me.
[00:32:24.756] A confirmation from Apple over there, we'll ignore that.
[00:32:27.889] I've got access to, as well, if I close this down.
[00:32:31.063] In fact, let me put that theme back to Red Graphite.
[00:32:34.439] Close this down.
[00:32:35.991] If I was to export this.
[00:32:38.613] Alright, so PDF, HTML, DOCX, and JPEG
[00:32:41.919] are all unlocked as well.
[00:32:43.901] And, of course, it's now syncing with iCloud.
[00:32:46.029] So when I go across to the iPad, I should see
[00:32:49.428] all these documents appear on my iPad automatically.
[00:32:53.437] Let's give that a whirl.
[00:32:54.429] Let's go across to the iPad and get Bear on the iPad.
[00:32:59.092] Across over to the app store,
[00:33:00.266] where I've already done a search for Bear.
[00:33:02.340] It is a free application on the iPhone and iPad.
[00:33:05.419] You can download it and use all the functionality
[00:33:07.803] that I've shown you on the Mac version.
[00:33:09.293] But, of course, now when we go in,
[00:33:10.825] because I've paid for the subscription,
[00:33:12.564] it should automatically start syncing with iCloud
[00:33:16.091] and I should be able to see those documents
[00:33:17.810] that we've been working on earlier on.
[00:33:20.373] So let's go ahead and say Get.
[00:33:22.015] And I'll say Instal.
[00:33:23.602] Now, of course, I am logged into the same iCloud account
[00:33:25.801] as I was on my Mac.
[00:33:27.708] Let me just do a quick Touch ID on here.
[00:33:32.299] Okay, so that's now downloading and installing.
[00:33:35.424] Once it's downloaded, I'll open the application.
[00:33:37.495] We'll give it a few minutes to settle down
[00:33:39.493] and to finish the synchronisation,
[00:33:41.442] and then we'll take a look.
[00:33:42.907] But that looks as though it's nearly done.
[00:33:44.435] Okay, we're ready, so let's go ahead and say Open.
[00:33:49.370] So there's no configuration,
[00:33:50.438] and there we go, it started to sync straight away.
[00:33:52.459] There's no configuration, it just knows
[00:33:54.312] that you've actually already purchased the Pro subscription
[00:33:57.281] and it will actually start synchronising in the background.
[00:34:02.176] So we'll just give that a minute or two.
[00:34:04.613] It really didn't take very long for that to sync,
[00:34:06.490] actually it didn't take long at all.
[00:34:07.838] Not that many notes in this particular library.
[00:34:09.866] Let's have a quick look at the UI.
[00:34:11.826] If you're now familiar with the UI on the Mac,
[00:34:14.669] they've done a really great job of transferring
[00:34:16.774] that across to iOS and taking advantage
[00:34:19.230] of some gestures as well on iOS.
[00:34:21.128] So this is our Notes List, as you can see.
[00:34:23.645] I've not got a note selected,
[00:34:24.791] but I can just select one.
[00:34:26.334] You can see the note there.
[00:34:27.311] If I want to get to my Sidebar, different ways of doing it.
[00:34:30.738] I can tap in the top left-hand corner,
[00:34:32.794] that opens the Sidebar.
[00:34:34.109] Or I can drag as well, so if I drag across
[00:34:36.255] in the Editor space, I can drag across,
[00:34:39.461] bring the Editor to come back out,
[00:34:41.148] or I can drag to the right to bring the Notes List
[00:34:44.020] drag again, to produce the Sidebar.
[00:34:46.986] The Trash is also synchronised with the Mac,
[00:34:49.591] so everything I've deleted on the Mac
[00:34:51.030] appears in the Trash here.
[00:34:52.128] So I can restore from my iOS device, which is good.
[00:34:55.455] I've got access to all my tags down here.
[00:34:58.008] So if I wanted to go to my recipe tags, tap on recipe.
[00:35:01.510] These are all my recipes.
[00:35:03.678] Okay I can actually swipe back.
[00:35:06.574] If I wanted to see the recipes,
[00:35:08.784] the individual tags within the Sidebar,
[00:35:11.227] I can just tap on the little chevron at the side,
[00:35:13.878] and there are all my recipes.
[00:35:16.073] So I can just tap on one recipe to go straight to that.
[00:35:19.821] I'll swipe back and we'll go back up to all our notes.
[00:35:24.097] Now as far as the Editor controls,
[00:35:25.573] again, very similar as to what they were before.
[00:35:27.578] If I just open my Test Note.
[00:35:29.398] In fact, let's go full screen on that, so I'll swipe across.
[00:35:32.235] So in the top corner, I've got my Information panel.
[00:35:35.305] You can tap on there.
[00:35:36.188] I've got my word count, modification date,
[00:35:39.577] when it was last edited.
[00:35:40.822] So it was last edited on my MacBook Pro.
[00:35:43.192] When it was created.
[00:35:44.352] And because I've got the Pro version now,
[00:35:45.753] I've got access to all these different formats to export.
[00:35:48.872] So if I wanted to export to say PDF.
[00:35:51.571] Let's give that a go, PDF.
[00:35:54.507] And there we are, there's my note.
[00:35:58.145] Wanted to save that somewhere else,
[00:35:59.361] I can just tap on the share button.
[00:36:01.001] Save it to iCloud drive or send it
[00:36:03.010] across to another application, etc.
[00:36:05.141] We'll tap away, we'll say Done.
[00:36:07.803] Okay, I'll put that back.
[00:36:09.263] So I can either swipe or tap in the top corner.
[00:36:13.399] I have a standard share button here,
[00:36:15.139] so if I want to share directly from here I can do.
[00:36:18.472] I'll tap away.
[00:36:19.944] If I want to start editing, I can tap into the note.
[00:36:23.199] I'll get the keyboard up.
[00:36:24.436] So a standard iPad keyboard,
[00:36:25.698] but with an extra row of controls across the top.
[00:36:28.401] And these are all formatting controls.
[00:36:29.745] So no separate style sheet on iOS,
[00:36:31.974] we actually have these new controls
[00:36:33.361] at the top of the keyboard.
[00:36:35.316] And they give you the standard things as you would imagine.
[00:36:37.169] Headings, so I can tap on H.
[00:36:39.584] Headings, H1, H2, H3.
[00:36:41.924] Let's go with H2.
[00:36:44.049] I can just type.
[00:36:47.159] Want to go into bold, tap B.
[00:36:48.580] I'm now in bold, etc.
[00:36:52.681] Okay I'll pop the keyboard out of the way.
[00:36:54.243] There is also, if I go back up here,
[00:36:55.999] for some reason a small keyboard removal button
[00:36:59.252] on the styling toolbar.
[00:37:02.684] So let's just swipe across to the Notes List
[00:37:05.599] and see what we can do with the Notes List.
[00:37:07.425] I can swipe an individual record or individual note.
[00:37:11.495] I can then trash it.
[00:37:12.800] I can pin it to the top.
[00:37:14.838] So that's now pinned to the top,
[00:37:16.038] because of it's little pin icon.
[00:37:17.151] If I want to get access to some of the copying features,
[00:37:20.087] tap on More.
[00:37:21.434] And that gives us access to this pop up menu
[00:37:24.283] to Share, Copy link to note, Copy note's identifier,
[00:37:27.379] and to duplicate the note.
[00:37:29.005] What you might notice is that
[00:37:30.645] there's no share as or save as,
[00:37:32.592] as we had on the Mac version.
[00:37:33.792] To actually copy this in a different format,
[00:37:36.410] what you have to do is go into the note,
[00:37:38.605] tap and hold, and then we need to select,
[00:37:41.467] well select either the entire note,
[00:37:43.628] or just the bits you want to copy.
[00:37:45.586] And you can see here, we can copy as Markdown,
[00:37:47.953] copy as HTML, copy as plain text,
[00:37:52.243] and then some paste options here as well.
[00:37:53.769] But there are the copy ones.
[00:37:54.752] Now no option to copy as RTF,
[00:37:57.009] as RTF isn't supported in the iOS version.
[00:38:00.903] But we'll undo that for now.
[00:38:01.989] Let's just go back out.
[00:38:03.853] So to create a new note, we just tap on
[00:38:05.789] this big red button down at the bottom.
[00:38:07.967] It gives me access to my new note.
[00:38:11.983] And then I can just type away.
[00:38:13.530] If I want to put a tag in, same as before,
[00:38:15.651] I just use the hash.
[00:38:16.517] It's a little bit easier here,
[00:38:17.463] because you've got a hash button here.
[00:38:19.263] Let's say this was another recipe.
[00:38:22.477] Hit Return, and away we go.
[00:38:24.550] Okay, we'll swipe back.
[00:38:26.102] To come back to the three-pane view.
[00:38:28.204] Let's have a quick look at the Preferences.
[00:38:30.560] So if I go down to Preferences at the bottom.
[00:38:32.933] General options.
[00:38:34.458] So as we saw before, sorting your notes list,
[00:38:36.904] sorting your tags list.
[00:38:38.105] We have got text expander support here,
[00:38:40.189] if you're a text expander user.
[00:38:41.452] You can enable text expander
[00:38:42.865] and then synchronise your snippets.
[00:38:45.541] Let's go back a level.
[00:38:46.613] The Editor itself.
[00:38:48.742] We have access to the Typography,
[00:38:50.708] so change the font size and the style, etc.
[00:38:53.559] So if you wanted a different font.
[00:38:55.421] You can actually see down at the bottom,
[00:38:58.160] a quick view of how it's gonna look.
[00:39:01.131] Let's go to System Font.
[00:39:05.365] And then we have, stick with that one.
[00:39:08.351] It's the standard font.
[00:39:09.439] Font size, line height, line width, etc.
[00:39:12.604] Let's just go back.
[00:39:13.796] This is something, I don't think
[00:39:15.409] this actually is on the Mac version,
[00:39:16.931] but you can auto fold completed Todos.
[00:39:19.187] If we just come away from here.
[00:39:20.939] If I go into a note that's got a Todo,
[00:39:22.962] you'll see the checklist is checked and it's visible.
[00:39:26.311] If I go back into Preferences.
[00:39:30.213] If I say Auto Fold Completed Todos.
[00:39:33.700] Wait a tick.
[00:39:34.533] If I come away from that note and back in,
[00:39:37.110] yeah, you'll see it's compressed.
[00:39:38.870] So I can't see it.
[00:39:39.900] I can open though, by tapping that symbol.
[00:39:42.590] There we go.
[00:39:44.690] Okay if we go back into Preferences.
[00:39:49.934] Show images as thumbnails.
[00:39:51.700] That's before.
[00:39:52.849] And then for import and export,
[00:39:54.219] lots of different options here,
[00:39:55.382] keeping dates, using first lines or filenames as titles.
[00:39:58.862] If you're not a Mac user and you want
[00:40:00.363] to import your Evernote notes using the iOS version,
[00:40:03.411] you can actually go to import notes from here.
[00:40:06.168] Some export options.
[00:40:07.616] Whether or not you want to keep tags during exports
[00:40:10.020] or export attachments.
[00:40:11.372] This option here, Merge notes in a single file.
[00:40:14.084] So if you select multiples notes to export
[00:40:16.189] you can merge them into a single file
[00:40:18.210] and then an option to export all notes,
[00:40:20.232] there's also a backup and restore mechanism as well.
[00:40:23.192] Options to access the various themes.
[00:40:26.106] And then your sync status.
[00:40:28.620] Okay, but we'll just say OK to that.
[00:40:31.989] Now as far as clipping from mobile Safari
[00:40:34.142] you can actually incorporate Bear into your share sheet.
[00:40:37.547] So if we go to the share sheet,
[00:40:39.203] if we go to this top line here.
[00:40:41.307] Tap on More.
[00:40:42.551] And then down at the bottom we've got Bear.
[00:40:44.086] I'll switch that on.
[00:40:45.134] Perhaps move it to another spot.
[00:40:48.756] We'll say Done.
[00:40:50.888] Now to save an entire webpage, you can only save the URL.
[00:40:54.268] So if I hit the share button, tap Bear.
[00:40:57.504] Now it will actually copy--
[00:40:58.712] well in this case the subject and the URL of the webpage.
[00:41:01.696] You can pre-prend or append it to existing notes.
[00:41:04.511] So add to the beginning or add to the end
[00:41:06.294] of an existing note.
[00:41:07.331] If we wanted to pre-pend it to something.
[00:41:11.110] Actually we did have another related web clipping,
[00:41:13.162] so I'll just add it to that one.
[00:41:14.930] To transfer some text into Bear,
[00:41:16.843] you actually have to select the text first.
[00:41:19.562] So if I copy and hold.
[00:41:22.545] Select the text.
[00:41:24.651] Select the full sentence.
[00:41:28.226] Say Share.
[00:41:29.955] Again, share it to Bear.
[00:41:31.832] And now I can copy that text over.
[00:41:33.268] Let's save it as a new note.
[00:41:36.068] Okay, if I go back across to Bear.
[00:41:40.273] Right there's the note that I just copied.
[00:41:43.254] This one at the top is pinned, by the way,
[00:41:44.995] that's why it remains at the top.
[00:41:47.760] Just to finish off, we're gonna have a very quick look
[00:41:49.256] at Bear on the iPhone.
[00:41:50.771] I've been to the App Store.
[00:41:52.127] I've downloaded and installed.
[00:41:53.713] Because I'm subscribed, everything has synced across,
[00:41:56.430] everything's working fine.
[00:41:57.909] From the home screen, I have a 3D switch-enabled iPhone,
[00:42:00.794] so I can actually do 3D touch.
[00:42:02.261] I can go straight to Search.
[00:42:04.811] I can create a new note, a new Todo, a new photo,
[00:42:07.722] and I can also share the Bear application.
[00:42:10.079] If I hit Share Bear it will send a link across
[00:42:13.091] to the App Store to somebody else on AirDrop, for instance.
[00:42:16.934] But what we will do, is we'll go straight
[00:42:18.406] into the application.
[00:42:19.335] So here are my notes.
[00:42:20.481] I can swipe across to get to my Sidebar.
[00:42:24.308] I'll swipe again.
[00:42:25.141] I've also got the button at the top as well
[00:42:26.231] to get to the Sidebar.
[00:42:27.292] But as you can see, everything as we had before,
[00:42:29.379] all my recipes, my projects, etc.
[00:42:31.838] I can compress them or open them up.
[00:42:34.006] I can get access to my Preferences from here.
[00:42:37.140] I'll come back to that in a second, actually,
[00:42:38.806] I want to show you something else with Preferences.
[00:42:40.686] If I swipe across, if I just go into a note,
[00:42:43.659] I've got my various tags.
[00:42:47.173] So I can tap on those to go into them.
[00:42:49.186] I've got access to my Information panel.
[00:42:53.344] All my export features down here as well.
[00:42:55.902] Swipe back across to get rid of that.
[00:42:57.418] Also if I edit the note,
[00:42:59.216] I get the standard keyboard.
[00:43:00.476] I also get the specific keyboard,
[00:43:03.288] the Bear keyboard across the top,
[00:43:05.063] which I can swipe across
[00:43:06.459] to have a look at all the different features.
[00:43:08.396] By the way, there's some extra keys on here
[00:43:10.596] I didn't mention before.
[00:43:11.790] These two keys here, the indentation keys.
[00:43:14.828] If I just position there, I can actually use that to indent
[00:43:18.282] or to out dent.
[00:43:19.471] And I can also use these arrow keys to jump up a line,
[00:43:23.230] down a line, and also if I swipe across,
[00:43:25.833] character by character.
[00:43:26.872] If you want to use those as well.
[00:43:28.290] But I'll just pop that out of the way.
[00:43:29.969] The preferences I wanted to go through with you,
[00:43:32.410] if I go back into the Sidebar,
[00:43:33.730] this is really how to unsubscribe.
[00:43:35.671] So let's you've been for the free trial
[00:43:37.608] and you like the app but you don't really want
[00:43:39.660] to have the Pro subscription, you want to unsubscribe,
[00:43:42.552] you can tap in Preferences.
[00:43:44.202] Tap on this box at the top.
[00:43:46.084] And there's an option here to manage subscription.
[00:43:48.508] Now because this is my demo machine,
[00:43:49.816] there's no point in me staying subscribed
[00:43:51.198] to the full subscription,
[00:43:53.513] so I'm going to cancel my free trial and subscription.
[00:43:59.017] Okay, if I wanted to, I could actually bump it up
[00:44:00.944] to the annual subscription and save some money,
[00:44:03.326] but I'm just gonna go ahead and say Cancel.
[00:44:07.374] And Confirm.
[00:44:10.069] Okay and that's done.
[00:44:11.390] So if we can back out of here.
[00:44:19.374] Okay let's come out, let's go back into Bear.
[00:44:22.854] Now although I've cancelled the subscription,
[00:44:24.324] it looks as though I'm still in the free trial.
[00:44:26.463] So I can still use all the features.
[00:44:28.103] And then perhaps later, if I want to go back in
[00:44:29.975] and sign up again, I can go through that same mechanism
[00:44:32.480] to sign up for the subscription.
[00:44:35.931] But just a very quick look at Bear on the iPhone.
[00:44:39.537] (bouncy music)
[00:44:42.240] So that's Bear for iPad, iPhone, and Mac.
[00:44:45.142] Very nicely put together.
[00:44:46.603] It's still only a version one product,
[00:44:48.572] but there's tonnes of functionality in there,
[00:44:49.857] it's very elegant, very nicely put together.
[00:44:52.097] And very nice to use as well.
[00:44:53.810] Now, of course, the stumbling block for many people
[00:44:55.373] will be the subscription service,
[00:44:57.027] but I think I've demonstrated
[00:44:58.380] there is quite a bit of functionality in the free version.
[00:45:01.309] Personally, I'll be subscribing.
[00:45:03.502] I'll probably get the yearly subscription
[00:45:05.250] and save myself some money.
[00:45:06.945] I think you get can 15% off the yearly subscription.
[00:45:09.178] But it sort of fits nicely between Scrivener and Ulysses.
[00:45:11.969] But I'll probably use Ulysses and Bear
[00:45:14.397] for the next couple of months
[00:45:15.740] and see if either one wins out,
[00:45:17.318] or if I just carry on using both.
[00:45:19.333] But anyway, that's it for this week.
[00:45:21.417] We'll be back next week with something new.
[00:45:23.139] So we'll speak to you then.
[00:45:24.531] [Music]
