Pyramid is a visual thinking tool that allows you to assemble notes on subject matter in a free-form fashion, creating a non-linear representation of it that suits your style. Developer MindCad Software updated the application to version 1.1 on Wednesday, adding the ability to import images, export worksheets as image files, add notes to objects, apply different fonts, colors, or attributes to text within an object, and more.
Images can be imported by simply dragging them from the Finder, or another application, into your Pyramid worksheet. When you export a worksheet, it’s saved as a PNG image. A new drawer can be opened and text entered in it that’s specific to an individual object.
In addition to those changes, Pyramid 1.1 also allows you to fix the background color used for an annotation as solid yellow, and a user preferences panel has been added to the Pyramid menu that allows you to select the initial font and color for new objects, the background type for new annotations, and the preferred edge that the Info drawer uses.
As of this update, which is free for registered users of Pyramid 1.0, the application requires Mac OS X v.10.3.x “Panther,” losing compatibility with earlier versions of Mac OS X. A full license is US$29, with a demo available. The trial version is fully functional, although you’re limited to 15 objects per worksheet and 2 worksheets per document.
