If you've ever transferred handwritten notes to electronic documents, you know how awkward it can be--figuring out the scrawls in the margin, inputting the pertinent information, shuffling through sheaves of paper to find a missing note. There's nothing efficient about that! Enter Microsoft's OneNote note-taking software and this handy Visual QuickStart Guide. With an interface that resembles a tabbed notebook, Microsoft's brand-new software mimics pen-and-paper-based note-taking--but brings a whole new level of efficiency to the process. Single notes can contain both typed characters and handwriting (say lecture notes and a hand-drawn graph); you can input text anywhere on a page; you can drag in text and pictures from Web sites; and there are a variety of options for organizing, formatting, searching, and accessing notes--all of which are explained in friendly, concise fashion in these pages. You'll also find chapters on using OneNote with Microsoft Office apps and tablet PCs as well as plenty of tips and visual aids.
