Abandoned Evernote, don’t miss it!

When Evernote decided to start charging for what had been a free service I was annoyed, then I read that not only is OneNote free on every platform I use (Mac, Win, IOS), but also they have a free utility that would import all my Evernote content automagically! So I made the switch and am pretty happy so far. The only feature that I miss is on searching a notebook for a particular string, OneNote will only show me which page(s) the string is on, and not exactly where on the page. So where I have pages with long lists of information, I still have to scroll through to find what I am looking for.

On the plus side, OneNote integrates neatly with OneDrive; notebooks can be managed via OneDrive as well as from within the app. (In fact, the only way to delete a Notebook is to login to OneDrive and do it there.)

I’m still getting used to OneNote but I find that I am using it more and more, and probably more often than I used Evernote, and learning neat things all the time.

Once they fix search to show you where on a page the text you are looking for actually is, I’ll bump my review to five stars.

Font converts back to old default when adding a line

OneNote has annoying issues with fonts that convert back to the old standard OneNote font of Calibre, 11 pt. This is VERY frustrating! For example: Now that we can select a default font, I change my default to Times New Roman, 12 pt. It does NOT change my 75 notes I already had written in the old default of Calibre, 11 pt. To fix the problem, I have to MANUALLY change the fonts for every note. What a pain! So I change them each manually. No problem. BUT THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS: when I add a new line to the note, it defaults back to the old font not the new font I manually changed for each of my existing notes. Now I have a note with TWO fonts, Times New Roman, 12 pt I changed for old text and Calibre, 11 pt it defaults to for the new line in the note.

Fix it and OneNote will be an absolute rock star!

Great for lesson planning

I am loving this. It really makes it easy to have everything on one page including all my files that I need. I love that I can physically see each and every file that I need for a specific lesson (I teach math) and I can access it from anywhere too. So no matter which device I am working on I will have everything available and I can share with whoever needs access to them very easily. I had tried PlanBook but it wasn’t very dynamic and was rather cumbersome with uploading files, etc.
