Yoga X1, taking & using photos in tablet mode

2018-12-03, 22:26 PM

I just purchased a Yoga X1 Gen 3. I wanted to be able to use OneNote for field reports with photos, but I now realize I can't take photos in tablet mode... or can I? OneNote has a Photo function, can't get it to work... so now what?


Flip to laptop mode, take photo, somehow move into OneNote?

Take photo on my iPhone, load to Yoga, then into OneNote?


These both seem so cumbersome. Hopefully one of you smart people will see a better way to skin this cat.

Hi billder99!


Welcome to the community forums.


I just want to verify, you can't take photos using your Yoga X1 Gen 3 while in tablet mode or you're trying to take photos while in tablet mode via OneNote? If you're trying to take a photo directly in OneNote it is still unavailable. You can check this discussion for more information.
