I have gotten a few comments and mails from readers asking if this blog was dead and I will have to say that it is not! The whole team has been working hard over the past few months and my time for blogging just has gone down though I do miss writing everyone. Even right now I have a mountain of other things to do, but I wanted to write you all.
In any event we are all hard at work on Office14 and OneNote14 and it is shaping up well. I am super excited for what we are going to be offering. If you didn’t see any of the keynote from PDC day 2 I will just show you this one screenshot that is public:
Stay in tune…but in the meantime please keep up with John’s blog or Jeff’s blog. Happy New Year everyone!
Version 14? What happened to 13?
12 is the latest on the street isn't it?
Awesome! OneNote ribbon-ized! I can't wait for OneNote 14 :-)
The reason why it is Office 14 is because in the US and some other countries 13 is considered an unlucky number. So, people tend to skip 13 in many instances. If you go into some tall buildings there is not 13th floor; it will go from 12 to 14. This is illogical because if 13 was an unlucky number just renaming the actual 13 floor to 14 would not make it lucky. It is the number that is supposed to be unlucky not the name of it.
Are you guys going to add mind mapping functionality in here or what? You realize this is the killer app that would SELL onenote in right?
Please consider it.
Ribbons in ON? I'll try it out, but if you are on a tablet, you're low on screen space already. And yes, you can minimize the ribbon, but the small footprint, one click functionality on the current ON seems to make a lot more sense.
One of you OneNote people needs to go over and show the outlook people how syncing is done. I've takan to writing my emails in onenote and then sending to outlook when I'm done because some of my correspondance can take days to complete and I hop from machine to machine to work on it. Why can't the outlook guys figure out how to sync as seamlessly as you folks???
Ribbons? I was so happy when I opened up OneNote 2007 and realized that it had NO ribbons. I really prefer the menu. Could you let us choose whether to use the ribbons or not? Just add an checkbox to turn on real menus to the options dialog.
I hope the beta soon. And please, make it simple to backup and synchronize templates and tags!. It drives me nuts when I try to use those in various PCs, or after a re installation!
Please, Please, Please!!! and ribbons all the way!!
It would be awesome if you'd build a simple way to share notebooks with others.
Right now I'm using live-sync to share notebooks with team-members living in different cities.
Why doesn't OneNote support ftp or windows sky-drive? THAT would be great :-)
Puhlease make it possible to collapse subpages
will onenote 14 include digital signing and/or some sort of revision control? To me the tamper evidence inherent in bound paper notebooks are a main factor keeping me from transitioning to using onenote in a lab environment.
Please don't ruin Onenote like you did Office 2007. I've switched to OpenOffice, but I still need Onenote to work correctly. Let me turn the ribbon garbage completely off. I use a tablet PC and it takes up half the screen.
But whatever you do, keep in mind that we need it to work in a 64-bit environment.
Ribbons are bad. You cannot use autohotkey (www.autohotkey.com) reliably with them.
Would be nice to have an addition to that fantastic bar that allows you to add or reduce space on a page. . . send everything below to a new page in the folder.
Sometimes I find after I've been writing on a page for awhile, that it would be better organized otherwise. Right now, I can lasso, but if I've got a lot there, that's tough. So is copying and pasting box by box.
