Microsoft has updated OneNote, the very popular “digital notebook” that they released for Macs back in March. OneNote became free with that release. Prior to that, when it was Windows-only on the desktop, it was not free.
Similar to Evernote, it allows you to add and edit notes across multiple platforms. LifeHacker had a very comprehensive comparison between Evernote and OneNote. I can see the appeal for OneNote, and I know a lot of genealogists who have been using it on Windows for quite some time.
They’ve been listening to Mac users, and OneNote 15.1 is a major update:
– You can now print notes, lists, etc. as well as save them as PDF files
– Drag and drop pictures directly into a note, from your Mac, a website, etc.
– Formatted Text can be copied and pasted between applications.
– Format Painter – quickly copy the format of a piece of text in one note, and apply it to text in another note.
– Hyperlinks can be added to notes, as well as edited.
