Hi,

We have in our computer Microsoft OneNote 2016.  We wanted to know when a user places a password in a section, is the entire section encrypted with the password, or the password is just for opening the section (in other words, another person can see the contents if he/she knew where the files were saved)? - same question on the OneNote data sync in OneDrive.com

I'm looking for advice on how to resolve a OneNote performance issue where OneNote fails to finish synchronizing across all the folders in a very large shared folder structure. Can someone tell me if what we're trying to do is possible, or advisable? Here are the salient points:

1. We want to use OneNote for multiple reasons, including reference information for what types of information & files are in different folders at each level of the infrastructure. Of course, we want this information to be searchable at every level.

2. There are currently 3500+ folders, and it will probably grow to more than 15,000 folders as we consolidate multiple share drive locations into a single structure.

3. Whenever a user opens OneNote files in the new folder structure, s/he just waits and waits, and most of the time OneNote is not able to return any content. (This issue holds true in most situations unless we create a OneNote Notebook manually in a subfolder - in that situation, if a user opens that notebook, only subfolders are synchronized and any OneNote files in folders above it are ignored.)

4. We are starting to look at using SharePoint as the backend to OneNote. The purpose here is to see if we can make OneNote sync with SharePoint and not scour the entire folder structure looking for changes. Has this been done, or is this a worthwhile direction to explore?

Any comments, questions and advice are welcome.

We have OneNote 2016 and we attach a lot of files to notes (where the  file is saved in the OneNote page, not as link).  The inconvenient is that when inserting these files, it always displays as a large icon.  Below is a pix os a sample OneNote page.  Notice the 2 files as large icons, we want them to be display as like a hyperlink (the circled in red).  Is there a way of doing this?

onenote attach
Please note, that we want the files embedded within  the OneNote not an external link (we want it to be  displayed as an external link).

Hi,

Is it possible to share an online Onenote as a webpage (readonly)?
That way I could just edit the OneNote book locally and the webpage would change.

I'm really looking for that kind of solution for my webpage: plain and simple to maintain.

Onenote on Windows PC.  Onenote on Android phone.

Can turn off sync to the cloud in PC version.

Seems like I have to create an account to use Onennote Android.  After I do this, is there anyway I can sync between the PC and the phone but prevent the phone from syncing to the cloud?

Thanks!

I found one at a store, Samsung Galaxy Note 8, that seemed impressive. Could write notes on it just like with an ordinary pen on paper. Is this the best there is on the market, or is there any other note-taking smartphone that is much better?

Except the function to take notes just like with an ordinary pen on paper but instead on the smartphone with an electronic pen, I also want to be able to easily and quickly find any small note. So there should be possible to save each note and label each note so I can find it later using any of several search criteria.

Also useful would be to easily be able to cut parts of a note and paste somewhere else to other notes (move parts of notes to other notes).

Or would a tablet like Samsung Tab J be even better than a note-taking smartphone?

I work with sharepoint foundation newest bulid and OneNote 2016 (office 365). And I have a OneNote file inside of a library and saved as web template. If I produce a new web, I have a new OneNote. That works fine. But when I open the OneNote the first time, the section has a message "loading process running... please wait" (german: Ladevorgang läuft... bitte warten). Nothing happens than, this text remains.
I can generate new sections in OneNote, thats ok, but my template sections remain in this loading state.

In the library generated in this way, the "section" property is set as required even when I switch it off bevor I save the web as template.
Strange, isn't it?

Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thanks in advance.

No replies since this poste since about two months. Do you understand the question or is it such a unsolvable problem? Thanks for any comments.

Each time I point over a "To Do" check box, a tool tip indicating "To do" pops up.  It's very annoying.  Disabling "Screen tips" does not affect this.  Does anyone know how to disable this feature?

Note: none of the approved topics offered for this inquiry were related to the topic, so I selected Access since it is part of the Office 2016 package.

Thank you

Good Evening,

Has anyone had any experience with using OneNote 2016 internally on their corporate network rather than having it sync to OneDrive/O365?

We would like to start using this software but we cannot have the data leave our corporate network.

yes i know we can save this data on local disk or even in shared file system just i we have to put the path

but my question related tp users who want to share some data with other users in the same corporate

so i am thinking about punting such data file server but how can i mange permission if some user want to share one note with other etc

we don't have share point  

any advice here  
thanks

Hello Experts,

I have been pretty impressed with Microsoft 'SideNotes', see image. It allows you to comment/annotate from certain websites. However, there isn't any information on how to manage the notes. For example, I can view all the notes I've ever taken, however I can't delete them, or prevent them from being shared.

Can someone shed some light on SideNotes please.

Please note, this isn't the same as OneNote.

I want to find out if there is a way we can make OneNote fully sync with all OneNote books opened by the user when users first log in to AD. We use OneNote heavily to share info in our company, however lately I started having some issues with OneNote misplacing sections with some users. Some of these OneNote books are published to SharePoint online.


The issue with this misplaced sections is that some of them had a password assigned, but once it is misplaced then the passwords disappears and other users can open the tab without password.

Any ideas on how to make sure OneNote fully syncs to avoid some of these issues, of if there are other ways to make sure we don't have misplaced sections.

Thank you in advance for any ideas!

The share option often doesn't have my standard location available.  As result I have my files spread over everywhere as I use what is available on the share menu.

 I would like to standardize on where I store my files, I currently have Evernote, Microsoft OneNote, Qfile a QNAP NAS Utility,  Dropbox, Box, Google Drive,  sometimes the iOS mail shows up in other times it’s just the Gmail app.

 I’ve checked the “More” menu and unfortunately the app I want to use is not included there either.

 I am thinking about standardizing on Dropbox but if it often doesn’t show as an option it kind of defeats the purpose.

 I have tried nightly to round up the information that I’ve spread around during the day and move it into my standard location but that is quite a pain.

Controller disconnects from Xbox One randomly yet constantly.  On average it disconnects about once every 2-3 minutes making gameplay nearly impossible.  In other words every 2-3 minutes the controller starts “blinking” and whatever game I am playing pauses and the Xbox displays “controller disconnected.”  I then have to wait for the controller to stop blinking (reconnect) then try to continue play.  I stated on “average” every 2-3 minutes, but sometimes it is non-stop (disconnect, reconnect, immediately disconnect, repeat.

I had a friend bring over two of his controllers to test them to see if it is a problem with the controller you sent me or both the controller and the console.  While playing, the controller you sent me disconnected at least once every few minutes.  His controllers disconnected approximately 5 times in the course of a half hour of play.

I played the Jackbox Party Pack that connects to your smartphone via the Wi-Fi connection and had no issues over the course of at least an hour of play with a friend using only smartphones. Does that rule out the Wi-Fi Chip? Should it be the RF Module Board or both that are replaced?

TROUBLESHOOTING STEPS ALREADY TAKEN:

- Plugged controller in via USB cable and “updated” to latest firmware.
- Hard wired the xbox one to the modem eliminating it needing to wirelessly connect.
- Moved the xbox one from the enclosed shelf to the top of the entertainment center so that is is not surrounded by any other materials; …

I've been having serious problems with OneNote 2016. The first problem is renaming sections (or naming them in the first place); when I try to add a new section and name it, the name automatically reverts to "New Section 1." When I try to rename it, the same thing happens. After opening and closing the app multiple times, I have finally been able to rename and have it stick. However, I can't figure out why this is happening (and it continues to do so), and I need to fix it. I am able to rename Pages, but only by typing the title in the Page itself.

My second problem involves the navigation pane. When I first opened OneNote, it worked fine (I'm actually a big fan of having it on the left and seeing section titles there). However, now it has changed to only display pages. When I right click on the pages/sections and select "navigation panes" or when I am in a page and click on the "navigation panes" button at the top, it only allows me to select "Pages Only" or "Hide All." If I press the back arrow at the top of the pages pane I can see all the navigation panes, but as soon as I click on a page the same thing happens. If I open and close the app multiple times sometimes it allows me to view all panes or view pages and sections, but not consistently. When it does work I have the issue with section names.

It's been awhile since this came out, so I figure if this is a bug a lot of people are having it would be fixed (or at least addressed) by now. I've been searching …

I have a user who is getting the message attached. The message is "AppVlsvSubsystems32.dll is missing." She gets it every time she tries to open Office 2013 Home and Business.

When she first started getting it I ran a Quick fix. That didn't work, so I then ran an Online fix. That got to the point where it uninstalled the existing office 2013 but then ran into an error ( I don't have the exact error) that something went wrong and it basically left her without any Office at all. So I ran the Microsoft Office cleanup tool and then restarted her computer. Then, I re-installed Office 2013 right from Microsoft and re-activated.

It seems fine except...she's still getting the same error. So I've repaired and removed Office and fully re-installed it and I'm still getting the same error. Any reputable site seems to indicate I need to re-install the program in order to get it to work but I just did that and I'm still getting the error.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Please see attachment for full error. It occurs with Excel, Word and One Note at least, so far.

In a meeting last night a topic security/Microsoft came up and wanted to pass it to EE for their insight.  A colleague said that he doesn't like using OneNote for writing down sensitive stuff like strategy, emails/passwords used, medical info, etc., because Microsoft, even though one can place a password in OneNote pages, they go over the OneNote contents for analysis,  etc. purposes.  We at our end don't really believe that.  Some years back we had a security/OneNote question and EE assisted in how-to identify OneNote is secure using, if  not  mistaken, SSL.

What's EE expert option  on the subject? And should we continue using OneNote for all our info, sensitive and not so sensitive?

I have an issue with the preinstalled version of OneNote in windows 10.
I have students that are meant to be using onenote on their windows 10 computers but every time they open their notebooks it opens in the preinstalled windows 10 version of one note and not onenote 2016.

If I try to change the Default for .one files to use 2016 using settings->systems->defult apps->choose default apps by file type It won't change. Either office 2016 is not displayed or if it is displayed and I click on it nothing changes.

So I wrote a power shell script to try and remove onenote (Get-AppxPackage *OneNote* | Remove-AppxPackage) which worked on the machines I tested it on as well as a few of the student's computers however it did not work on a majority of the student's computers.

I've been searching the internet for a few weeks but still can not find an answer to this problem other then what I have already tried so I am now asking for help to my problem.

I don't really use OneNote much and don't really like it. However, my office uses it so I am stuck with it. I have two Excel workbooks: one gets its data from the other. They are linked and it works just fine wherever they are stored because the links usually update (sometimes I update them myself). The formulas in the one workbook are primarily Vlookups to the second workbook (which is a purchase order type sheet). I noticed that when I put them in OneNote they do not work any longer because OneNote automatically creates a "copy" of it, basically treating the Excel file like a template. So if the workbooks was TestTina, it would open as TestTina1 and then TestTina2, etc. each time I open it. So, of course the links do not work because it cannot find that workbook to link to because it is renamed. Any solutions? Thanks,

Tina
