Microsoft’s One Note
Wow! My lovely wife got me a laptop for Christmas. Wow because I have the benefit of using her college access to Microsoft Office Suite ’07.
My question is is there anyone using the Notebook part of this program? It looks absolutely cool. And I’m sorry but I like Vista, sure it has issues but I can deal with it.
Anyway for anyone who doesn’t know what Notebook is here’s how I’m using it so far.
In researching a jobs issues and solutions on the web I can highlight any part of the site and clip it to a folder. In this way I’m gathering snippets of info with the web sites link attached for later reference. I can also in showing a client any of this info jump to the full site if they want.
I can also sent the folders info to anyone by e-mail where they can access the website the info references without there needing any simlar software.

Like everything else from MS the One Note application is overly complicated. I've been using Evernote for years. Does the same thing much quicker without all the complicated bells and whistles.
Does Evernote work on a palm PDA? Might be interesting to have this ability with my palm.
I use Evernote like one big roll of paper. I keep all my computer passwords, phone numbers, etc. It has the ability to categorized notes, but why bother. The search feature is quick and easy, so no categorization is neccessary.
They have a keyboard command for cut and pasting info of a website that is fast and simple.
We use One Note and it's fairly easy to use. We have a network hard drive in our family network that our notebooks are saved. It has everything from vacation ideas, gift wish lists and around the house to-do lists that we can all view. I think it's a very useful program!.View Image
I think the same way about most of MS stuff. I think I opened one note when I got this laptop and immediately uninstalled it because it quickly overwhelmed me.I'm trying the evernote link now. Thanks. Bob's next test date: 12/10/07
In all fairness to you all I agree the program is a little overwhelming. My thought is at 54 soon to be 55 everything is becoming daunting. I don't want "simple dumb". I feel I have an obligation to my remaining gray matter to stretch it from time to time. My hope is while I don't do the same exercises for my body the least I can and should do is exercise my mind. When I pass on to "The Great Breaktime" my body won't be along and what will be with me I intend to have in Schwarzenegger condition.
LOL, my gray matter is challenged with far less than something as simple as one note. My hats off to you for your ability to cope. I'm still stuck on the spiral notebook system. Bob's next test date: 12/10/07
