    LOL you keep swaying me to different note taking apps but there isn’t a perfect one just yet I want something that’s a mix of one note with goodnotes customizability (highlighter, and easy interface) but also noteability voice recording 😩

    My favorite way to use onenote is to annotate my lecture notes (pdf) on the app. I have a 2-in-1 Windows laptop so I can switch between hand writing and typing quite quickly 🙂

    I just wish that one-note was more printer friendly, the infinite page layout makes it a pain to print for classes that require physical copies of notes for recitations.

    Thanks for uploading this early!❤️ I am a nursing student and I used notability last semester but I didn’t keep things organized and ended up switching back to paper 🤦🏽‍♀️ but after you uploaded your last video I downloaded OneNote and I love it! The organization seems way better than Notability and I like how it syncs everything to OneDrive. Gonna try this again!😅

    I usually print my digital notes, but haven’t found a good way to do that through one note. When I try to print, it cuts the page off in weird places. Do you know how to fix this or print more efficiently??

    Thanks for the video. Well summarised!
    Whether to go fully Goodnotes or Onenotes was a "to be or not to be?" question. You've shown a method to integrate it. If Onenote had the option of setting page sizes, along side it's wonderful eternity canvas like facility, then Goodnotes perhaps would not have come into question at all.
    Did you struggle with the decision?

    I downloaded one note but never actually used it because I primarily use my ipad in college! Not sure if it would be best for me, but I am thinking of trying it out now

    Thank you, this was so helpful ! You made me want an iPad and I bought one. The writing possibilities are endless and always adjustable. I’m excited to begin my college career 🙂

    Really good! Can you print your notes with Onenote? I use that but I don’t understand how to do it. If i push “print” the program cut the page in a half…
    Thank so much and sorry for my english, I’m italian😅

    Is OneNote your go-to digital note taking app now? Versus Goodnotes?
