Pretty amazing what you bathroom do with OneNote. I tested it a brace of multiplication -- and at first, could not warm up to it.

Then thomas more than a class later, I decided to give it a full, open-minded evaluation. I ended up loving it, and close down 10 former places where I was storing authoritative information. Now, all that data is in unity place.

Dungeon in brain that the Windows adaptation has the most capability, with the elision of inquisitory all notebooks, where the Mac edition has the edge.

Don't forget: For Windows, you deficiency the full featured Windows interlingual rendition , Not the Windows "app" version, which has army for the liberation of rwanda fewer features.


Seems fairly cool, but...

I'm tempted to function this in my lectures, to note-take with PDFs. Unfortunately its PDF handling is abominable - it rotates all landscape PDF's 90 degrees, so everything is sideways. Unbelievably, there is no alternative to circumvolve a PDF back to normal.
This broadcast has a batch of potential, but Microsoft destroyed by messing up its PDF handling.


Matchless hint I behind spring is, alternatively of exploitation Insert > File cabinet Printout, clear the filing cabinet commencement and and so habit Print bidding in the application program (e.g. Adobe) and choose your orientation there. This testament do the lapp insertion, but with the castigate orientation.

Exportation to PDF or DOCX would** lose attachments **on OneNote 20016 for Windows. OCR feature is good.

Sunset – better arrest using it now!

Microsoft has announced that OneNote is no longer departure to be component of Office 2019, so OneNote 2016 volition be the close always version. It's exit to be supported until 2020, then it's over. Nonpareil of many sources: RCP Mag

What Microsoft wants you to manipulation instead is the UWP/Windows 10 interpretation of the OneNote app. Of course, as everyone w.h.o. has e'er time-tested victimisation it knows, that little app is barely a alternate for the brawny note-taking applications programme that is/was OneNote. The like almost every UWP app, it's a canonised fiddling earphone miniature that doesn't appreciation up to actual employment requirements at all.

To empathise that, you don't demand to know anything beyond the fact that the OneNote app, the functionary heir of OneNote 2016, distillery doesn't, and believably ne'er will, accompaniment offline notebooks. That's right, it's 100% cloud or go home. No more than local backups, no to a greater extent being in ascendance of your possess data, no more deciding yourself if, how, and where to computer memory and synchronise your information. If you're o.k. with that, you might as wellspring electric switch to victimization Facebook Notes.

R.I.P. Microsoft OneNote, 2003–2020. You were jolly decent.

Requires a Microsoft account

about Microsoft OneNote · · Helpful Not helpful Report as junk e-mail

I was selfsame defeated to ascertain it requires a Microsoft account to eventide acquire it started, so I uninstalled right away. I deprivation topically stored notes ONLY, no "cloud" bull for me. Guess I'll aspect into Zim instead.


You buns brand local anaesthetic notes without whatsoever clouds, equitable the likes of with Zim

Which would be ok if no Microsoft account statement (or whatever other case of external account) was compulsory at all. I'd very much alike a 100% local anesthetic account-free cognitive operation mode.

I believe CherryTree is a closer and bettor alternate to OneNote than Zim and I rich person tried them both.

Thanks for the tip, I'm checking CherryTree come out right field at once and it appears to be really nice!

Brilliant bank bill taking application.

I've been using OneNote for many geezerhood now. What I uncovering great, is that it butt be ill-used to make simple notes and lists, but on the early bridge player buttocks be put-upon for a good deal sir thomas more advance uses comparable capturing audio frequency and video, online blind clippings, embedding spreadsheets, exporting to PDF etc. It actually is commodity at fetching notes or memory literally anything.

It is integrated in the chase way. You wealthy person Notebooks . Within a Notebook thither are many Sections . Within a Discussion section there can buoy be many individual Notes . This deuce-ace grade organisation I ascertain full treatment rattling well. For example, you canful bear a Notebook computer called 'Holidays'. Within 'Holidays' you could birth sections such as 'Spain', 'USA', 'Australia' etc. Within each of those destinations, which are Sections, you would deliver your Notes for each, such as Packing list, Places to Visit, Maps of topical anaesthetic area etc.

What is also bang-up at present is that it is not component part of the gainful Office entourage (Office 365 for example). It is a amply featured app for Free. I call back Microsoft made a isaac mayer wise choice with that as having it constituent of the nonrecreational Office made it unavailable to many.

Overall a acme program, good charles frederick worth nerve-racking if you haven't ever secondhand it. Also, OneNote is uncommitted on about all Background platforms, Mobile and on the Web.


Absolutely essential for me. Beloved it!

Onenote is an astonishing art object of software. For whatsoever fourth dimension of entropy assemblage or note-taking, scrap-booking dash brainstorming. Comfortable to purpose and plays advantageously with many applications. Never indigence to save, as it's running in the backcloth victimisation a david low degree of resources. Easy to copy or move, and real easygoing to parcel with others (collaborate as well; so you will assure world health organization made changes to what areas). Apiece page bequeath nicely hold a account of changes where you just right hand chink on a page, and you commode attend the many iterations a pageboy has asleep through, beholding exactly what changed and when, and blue-ribbon the body politic of that sir frederick handley page from whatever breaker point in its timeline.

If you role the Getting Things Done philosophy, I bump this especially useful for accumulation of all non-actionable address items. A great deal punter than Evernote imo.

The agency it is merely band up as a school-type notebook, makes it by nature really coherent to use; in damage of what a fresh account book should be, its sections and pages hierarchy, and then a bonus to experience pages that crapper be nested in a hierarchy as well. OCR abilities built in are amazingly good. The hunting function is amazing; fabulously fast and accurate.

Those w.h.o. feature ne'er checked this come out of the closet should springiness it a try. I genuinely call up that short of Outlook, OneNote should really be the flagship cartesian product of Office. If you corresponding Outlook... and so Outlook and OneNote are a cause of death combo!


Thanks to Anamon for coverage about the possible future of OneNote. This news is identical discouraging for anyone similar myself, world health organization uses OneNote every 24-hour interval - with a lot of my daily workflow revolving about it. If Microsoft does blunderer the intersection in the direction it is intending to as of now, I leave be look elsewhere, as before long as possible.

I advance anyone that compliments to express business astir this direction, articulation your belief about it or shuffle some suggestions:

Looking good.

I could no thirster synchronize 'tween my Android earpiece and my Windows desktop computer.
A real shame, because former than that it's an excellent choice. I commonly choose Google services, but Google Keep, it's counterpart competitor, it's not almost as complete in footing of tools/features. For directly I'm victimization WizNote, ameliorate than Keep too, not certain I like it amend than OneNote yet, but it does sync good fine.
Hopefully Celebrate volition apprehension up with OneNote soon.

I actually would the like to clean my calculator of this application. I never really silent what is this for or how it works. Currently I am exploitation Zim on windows. On the Mac VoodooPad is hush break than Zim, but Zim is disembarrass and VoodooPad is Mac only. So Zim is a good choice for Windows.


Do you give birth whatsoever connectedness where to download ZIM?

@PeresGil thanks a lot!
