Relationship Between Onenote In Office 2013 And Onenote Metro


Recommended Posts

What's the relationship of these two apps? Do they share data? If so, how?


If they sync together (doesn't seem so to me, but I may be doing something wrong) how is the sync enabled and accomplished.


Thanks for your help.

They are basically the same app. The Metro OneNote is just that, a metro version of OneNote that you can use from the start screen. The Office 2013 OneNote is the desktop version of the program.


I have been using both and they are syncing just fine. The sync is automatically enabled and only syncs when you have a data conenction thorugh the WiFi.


If you have alot of notes, it might take a while to sync them all up. You should see a green sync icon when it is syncing.

Super! I was hoping that was the case. I wanted to be able to use either app depending on whether I was working in Office 2013 or Metro. Glad, glad, glad!

      I would like to use the camera to take a picture of a meeting agenda and import the image or a pdf into one note 
      I found a couple of apps, but either the lighting is bad. Or the camera quality is so poor, I can't take a picture of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper and read the text on it.
      Any suggestions on apps, camera settings, or how I can do this in one note.
      I generally use the "metro" version of RT though I recognize the desktop version does have additional capabilities (pen input )

      Hi All,
      I like the idea of using the Surface Pro 3 with its ability to be used as a notepad via the pen. I was wondering how you guys had found the OneNote integration? I keep a lot of separate notebooks for different clients I work with as some of them have multiple projects running at the same time etc.
      If I understand it correctly, when pressing the end of the pen, OneNote MX will launch and store any notes you take. Do you know if this can this be changed to OneNote 2013? 
      Ideally it would be great if I could wake the Surface from sleep with the pen and have OneNote 2013 open. I could then make my notes etc and then put the device back to sleep. Additionally it would be great if OneNote opened to the current notebook I am using, or if it was easy at a later point in time to move the notes around to store them with the correct Client\Project.
