Microsoft s OneNote is more than seven years old, and yet for many (if not most)
Office users it’s a complete unknown. That’s understandable: After all, in Office
2003 and Office 2007, OneNote was included only in a couple of Office editions,
but in Office 2010, OneNote is elevated to marquee status and is part of every edition.
So what is OneNote exactly? In this case, the program’s metaphor is absolutely accurate.
OneNote really is a digital replacement for a traditional loose-leaf notebook in which you
can save class notes, academic research, meeting minutes, or just about anything else you
might be tempted to put on a piece of paper. You can type, write, paste, print, snip, clip,
and send just about anything to OneNote, which saves each item on a page in a section of
a notebook. You can move the pieces around on the page, format text and resize pictures,
and arrange text into tidy outlines and lists.
Did we mention that OneNote notebooks are infinitely expandable? You can add new
pages and sections, organize pages and subpages, and create as many new notebooks as
you can it in your default storage location. Personal notebooks are stored on your hard
drive; you can share and sync notebooks using Windows Live SkyDrive (or, on a home or
business network, in a shared folder or SharePoint site).
Even if you already know OneNote well from an earlier version, you’ll want to read this
chapter carefully. Office 2010 includes some significant new features and capabilities, as
well as a new file format.
For more details on the Office 2010 file format and potential issues, see “Choosing the Right
OneNote File Format” on page 494.
