OneNote lets you choose from a variety of input methods to take notes that you can later consolidate into finished documents. Here's what you need to know about OneNote. It's All About Taking Notes Today, many people use Microsoft Word to take notes during meetings, classes, phone conferences, and other events. But Word can't replicate paper-based note-taking, which lets you enter text at any place on the page at any time and draw charts, maps, and other pictures. Furthermore, Word doesn't include audio-recording capabilities, so using your PC to simultaneously record and take notes during a meeting is difficult. OneNote addresses these limitations. OneNote is a visual note-taking application that uses a tab-based UI, similar to a real notebook, to help you capture and organize notes. When you take notes on paper, you're free to doodle anywhere on a page, move back through text to highlight or add text, and perform other flexible tasks. But paper-based notes are hard to reuse, and many people find themselves typing handwritten notes into a Word document after a meeting so that they can share their notes with others.
Overview[ edit ] In OneNote, users can create notes that can include text, tables, pictures, and drawings. Unlike a word processor, OneNote features a virtually unbounded document window, in which users can click anywhere on the canvas to create a new text box at that location. OneNote saves data automatically as the user makes edits to their file. OneNote saves information in pages organized into sections within notebooks. Microsoft designed this user interface to resemble a tabbed ring binder , into which the user can directly make notes and gather material from other applications. OneNote notebooks collect, organize, and share possibly unpublished materials — as compared to word processors and wikis , which usually target publishing in some way. The difference shows in certain OneNote features and characteristics: Pages can be arbitrarily large Bitmap images can be inserted There is no enforced uniform page layout or structure Users can move pages within the binder and annotate them with a stylus or word-processing or drawing tools. Users may add embedded multimedia recordings and hyperlinks.
