Very intuitive, great user experience

This is a great tool and a must-have for just about anybody. Becomes all the more indispensable when you consider that there is integration into browsers (as plugins) allowing for clipping content from just about anywhere. Very smooth, opens quick and does not get in the way at all. Not a huge memory hog from what ive gathered as well. Good user experience all through. The layout is simple and gets you started quickly and the buttons/toolbars choices is very logical and the features all seem sensibly implemented without going overboard. I wish it had a ruler option for those odd times when you want to be exact. Maybe a future version may have it as an opt-in option. Perhaps ive missed the feature if its already built in, but maybe some bare-basic resposniveness may also be useful. For example maybe i may want to have a picure or paragraph that ive positioned on my larger screen to fit across to do the same on the mobile version of the app as well.

Great Professional tool for business as well as personal use

One Note is one of the best professional tool both for business as well as personal. The application can be very easily customized as per individual requirement. All information can be easily synced with all devices running MacOS, IOS, Anroid, Windows, etc. I have been using One Note for over 5 years and it has just kept getting better and better. It can be used for several activities like task mamagement, planning, small reference document storage, minutes of meetings, Notes, etc. There could be alot of improvements to this product which I am sure will come in future releases. A leaner (not so heavy) app would be better.

A Substanital Thing For Microsoft To Improve On

I have used this app in the past and it has been great.

However, upon downloading the latest update on my new Mac, I am not able to sign in to my Microsoft Account through One Note and thus am not able to use the software at all. I wasted hours trying to figure this out, and it still doesn’t work.

Error: The authentication session has expired. Please sign-in again.

On my new Mac I use keychain for my other accounts, but not my MIcrosoft account. On the old one I never used keychain at all. Thus, I think the problem has something to do with this.

I have no idea how to proceed. I was really relying on One Note’s otherwise great usefulness to complete an assignment, but unfortunately have wasted too much time on this and not been able to proceed with the assignment.

If Microsoft wants to be better than Apple, it honestly needs to try much harder!

To Microsoft: “Pls roll out an update as soon as possible to tackle this problem and help all the users like me who are stuck with this useless version of One Note”

PS I already tried deleting the software and downloading it again. Turning off keychain and then trying to log in. Signing out of One Note and then signing in again. Signing in on the web browser, which was successful.
