“If there was one application, that I missed after I moved to Mac, it would have been OneNote, as I used it on Windows. So I was very happy, that OneNote for Mac was announced. I just did a test and found out the following (for me):
- Drag & Drop of pictures does not work - hey we are no longer in the 90´s - this should be standard
- OCR does not work on Mac, so I cannot search for the text within pictures. With Evernote (I have a premium account) it does work well and I use it reguarly. I have seen, that it also works on OneNote for Windows, so it would be good, if we can have this on Mac too.
- Text formatting is much better than Evernote
- It would also be nice, if we could have sync with a private cloud / sharepoint or can at least do a personal book on the local drive
From my perspective, it is a nice first try and hopefully MS invests in adding some features in order to have a more complete OneNote on Mac. I will wait for it and continue to use Evernote meanwhile ...”
