Chapter 10. Using Office on a Tablet PC > Using OneNote with Office

Using OneNote with Office

In its basic form, a Tablet PC resembles a pad of paper. In the office, most of us are used to jotting down notes of phone conversations, meeting minutes, shopping lists, and other sorts of random, freeform text; so it's tempting to think of doing the same with a Tablet PC. Although you can press Word into service for an occasional handwritten document of this sort, it's ill-suited to this task on a day-to-day basis. Word's drawing canvas greatly limits your ability to enter and edit text, and you're still faced with the dilemma of how to save, organize, and search multiple documents containing ink-based text.

That's where OneNote comes in. The newest member of the Office family was designed with freeform note taking as its central task. OneNote is not available in any of the Office editions; you have to purchase it separately.
