Looking for Information on OneNote on the TPT2

2013-01-18, 14:48 PM

Hello, group!  I'm looking for information on using OneNote on the TPT2.  Does it work? Is anyone using it?

 

If there's a thread I'm missing, please share it.

 

Thank you,

 

Jason

Jason you can. You simply use the pen to write directly into Onenote like a real notebook. You can write and draw as much as you want in your own handwriting.

 

The post about the 2 lines only come into play if you use to handwriting to text conversion (two lines built into windows by default, then it converts to HW to text).

Hope this helps.

Err, it works just fine for me. What kind of information are you looking for? You can use a keyboard or the pen input, but the pen is limited to two lines, which is a bit restrictive. I.e., you write two lines, the TPT2 converts to text, you insert that text into OneNote, then you can write another two lines.

Skitalets,

 

Thanks for the input, that's exactly the kind of information I'm looking for.  Can I ask if you're running the standard Windows 8 or the model with Windows 8 Pro?

 

Regards,

 

Jason

OneNote runs on both Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro, so that's not an issue. What will be an issue is to ensure that you have a Thinkpad 2 model that comes with an active digitizer and pen (not all of them do).

 

If you have a model without an active digitizer and pen, then you can only use a capacitive stylus with it, which is less accurate, and you won't be able to rest your palm on the screen while writing (unless you wear a glove).

 

Oh, and there's also a (free) version of OneNote that is available in the Windows Store that uses the Modern UI.

I'd also like to add that the free OneNote app from the Windows store is quite good and works really well on the TPT2. You don't have all the formatting and import options, but it does support pressure sensitive inking and syncs to your SkyDrive. I've been using it as a note taking device (everything hand written) for the last two weeks at work and it's been great.

For reference, I also installed full OneNote 2013 preview thinking I may want additional options, but I'm still using the free app instead. The app is easier/better on a touch interface (IMO) and it's more snappy on the TPT2 hardware. Still using the full OneNote for heavy lifting on my desktop, but the app is enough for me as a paper notepad replacement on my tablet.
