Microsoft today announced an update for OneNote for Mac. It includes audio recording—one of the most frequently requested features by OneNote for Mac fans (especially students), and another powerful way to capture ideas and information into OneNote—plus the ability to recover notes you deleted accidentally and view equations created in OneNote for Windows.
Starting today, you’ll never have to go through that again—thanks to the new audio recording feature in OneNote for Mac. Next time you’re taking notes, click Insert, select Audio Recording and OneNote will start recording. It’s that easy! Use OneNote to record meetings, conference calls, classes, interviews, focus groups, brainstorm sessions, personal journals and anything else you don’t want to forget.
Even better, any notes you type while recording will be synchronized to the audio. Reviewing your class notes and can’t remember exactly what your instructor said about the early music of the Beatles? Move your mouse over the notes you typed when the instructor was talking about that topic, then Control-Click to open the context menu and select Play Audio From Here. OneNote will play the audio that was recorded precisely when you typed that portion of your notes. Pretty handy!
In this update, they are adding the ability to view equations added from OneNote for Windows. Also, they’ve made it possible to recover deleted content. Simply click the View tab and then select Deleted Notes to see everything you’ve deleted in the last 60 days. To restore a deleted section or page, Control-Click on it and then select Restore To.
