(I'm new to SharePoint server, please bare with me.) I setup a test SharePoint Foundation 2013 Server and created a simple site. Within the site I created a couple of OneNote files and begin creating pages, attaching files, etc. I noticed 1, the page within OneNote are difficult to use, permitting me only to create one textbox to input data. And 2, I'm able to attach files to the OneNote pages, but I'm unable to open the file. Are there limitations when using the foundation version of SharePoint? Any thoughts?
SharePoint Foundation 2013 Server
Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

I do things a little differently. I use SharePoint and OneNote extensively. When I want to create a SharePoint "hosted" OneNote notebook (what you refer to as a textbox maybe), I use my OneNote client. Go to file --> New Notebook --> navigate to the SharePoint document library location --> create.

I never have the problems you describe or any other problems.

Hope that helps...

Unfortunately, I've performed the same steps when creating the OneNote notebook. I used OneNote 2013 client to create the notebook. With version 2013, in the new notebook dialog box, I had to manually enter the HTTPS address of my sharepoint server, then navigate to the document library I wanted to store the notebook. The next thing I need to test is if it's a 32 or a 64 bit client issue. I'm currently using a 64 bit version. I'm wondering if it's a compatibility issue.

Just an update. I setup another workstation with a 32 bit version of office 2013 standard. I connected to the SharePoint and was able to use all the feature I usually would if the Notebooks were stored locally. There seems to be a limitation when using a 64 bit version of Office. I'll also need to check and see if there's something that needs to be enabled or installed on the SharePoint server fix this issue. Anyone else with suggestions?
