Evernote Corporation has released Evernote 5.4 for Windows Desktop, a minor update to its popular cloud-based, cross-platform note-taking and organisational tool.
Version 5.4 introduces two new features based on user feedback: the ability to request additional permissions when accessing shared notebooks, and the ability to view shortcuts horizontally on their own dedicated toolbar.
When assigning shared notebooks to others, users can opt to give them read-only or editing access. As from version 5.4, the Evernote Windows client allows users with read-only access to shared notebooks the ability to request editing rights.
The feature is accessed by clicking the lock button in the top right-hand corner of any note within the shared notebook, which then sends a request to the notebook owner. If editing rights are subsequently granted, an email is sent back to the person requesting elevated access.
Shortcuts allow users to place frequently accessed notes, notebooks and tags via their own dedicated section in the Evernote navigation pane. Based on user requests, these shortcuts can be moved to their own dedicated section in the main toolbar by selecting View > Shortcuts > Show in Toolbar.
The update is rounded off with the promise of unspecified performance and reliability improvements. Evernote 5.4.1 For Windows Desktop is available as a free download for Windows XP or later. Also available are Evernote for Mac 5.5, Evernote Touch 2.0 for Windows 8, Evernote for iPhone & iPad 7.3.5, and Evernote for Android 5.7.
