I am looking for people's thoughts about where Onenote has gone since this post in the fall of 2019? I have a relative who has asked for help learning how to use OneNote and ot jas rekindled my interest.
Were there any “gotchas’” like ones you used the cloud you were not allowed to save the files locally?
I would be interested in being able to store notebooks locally.
I am correct that is still possible without any issues with Onenote 2016?
Is that possible with OneNote for Win10 (the webapp)
If a file is stored locally, can you transfer it to another system, and open it with another version of OneNote be it 2016 or OneNote for Win 10?
How does working offline work? Does Onenote just cache the files locally somehow?
Are you required to login to Microsoft? If you are not using the cloud services?
I believe that Onenote can run OCR on different types of images that are put in notebooks. Is this done locally or is it done in the cloud.
An earlier version of Onenote (Onenote 2010 or Onenote 2013) used to index audio files. I have not been able to get that to work in Onenote 2016. It did not work well in the previous version, but it was able to search for things that otherwise would not have been searched for.
I have a copy of OneNote 2016. I have not used it a lot, but it appears you can save locally. If I want to save to the cloud Office asks me to set up an account. Onenote for Win 10 requires you to sign in I believe.
My primary use case is taking notes where have the audio synced with the notes would be extremely helpful. I am also interested in being able to import pdf/power point documents and annotate them. There are not many alternatives that can do that live. I also realize that onenote is extremely powerful, and able to deal with many different types of digital media.
Would appreciate people’s take on the matter. https://answers.micr...32-bab5-090a5f6b42e8
