    So how do you copy/duplicate a whole section in the same notebook if you want to use the same template for everything? Do I just have to manually re-make the same thing a bunch of times?

    Thanks a heep mate! I was gonna go with evernote but evernote is a rip off compared to OneNote. Evernote is so $h#it that it doesnt even have headings! And they doubled their price within a year without adding many of the highly requested features.

    I tried Evernote a couple of times and at some point I gave up and still use a book and a pen. Thanks for helping me to try this tool.

    When you are using the draw option and are taking down notes using the stylus, the keyboard keeps propping up due to the touch sensitivity. How to prevent that?

    So I use OneNote to take notes on my iPad. Do you have tips for how to convert these notes into a pdf format that us easy to view. Every time I use the export to Pdf function on my iPad, it turns the file in to a giant pdf that is not normal page dimensions. On the other hand, when I export to Pdf on my Mac, it does not select the right width of notes and my page is split into multiple columns that exports in a weird order.

    Did you ever go over how to create the sectioned folder? I can't for the life of me figure out how to do that. I use my notebook for personal reasons, so I have a sectioned folder titled Homeschool and then I have subfolders for different years. I'd like to do the same thing with my Journal section, but I can't figure out how.

    To the right of tags is "Find Tags". You mentioned you can't search by tags, but that button is one of the best 'find' I've used in MS Office. Even groups your tags, such as all your Ideas together, or To Do's, etc. Very handy feature that should be shared with your users.

    For an accounting student do you recommend a traditional laptop or something like an ipad+ pencil? I feel like an ipad+ pencil is more flexible if i have to draw table/odd shape in conjuction with the normal word note. I imagine using trackpad+keyboard will take more effort because drawing shape with trackpad is harder

    Hey David, how do we insert video into the OneNote? Also when pictures or PDF in printout mode attached, can we delete the files where they are sourced from? and OneNote still can work? Meaning would it just import everything and not matter whether the source is there or not after import…?
