Also new in Alpha 20 will be a sync state indicator (which can be clicked to force an immediate sync) and the ability to drag commands from the command bar into your window or the shortcuts menu.

Glad to see this making it in, tis a useful feature in the PC version.

Clippings! I like the look of that on the PC videos. It would be so cool to do that on the Mac.

Ah! Clippings! How much time and effort that will save for academic notes!? Get a pile of clippings then copy them into OneNote (drat! and double drat! - not available in Mac. Sad Yes I know there are alternatives for Mac but none of them come near OneNote for functionality and flexibility. Probably the best program Microsoft has ever produced.)

I have to agree.  OneNote is the best kept secret in the windows world.  That is the only program I really miss in my conversion to Mac.  I use Notebook 3.0, but it still isn't even close.  Maybe in it will be included in the new Mac Office suite.

I don't think there are any current plans for  separate version of OneNote on the Mac. The MacBU's answer to OneNote is Word's Notebook view just like the Publishing view is their answer to Publisher. Not quite feature complete, though.

Losing OneNote was one of the few things I missed when I switched to Mac.  I found DevonThink to be a much more powerful replacement.

I use OneNote heavily on my work PC and it is one of the best applications available on the PC. However there are plenty of applications available for the Mac which provide similar environments. The one you would pick is based on what you used OneNote for. DevonTHINK is one of the most obvious replacements, but for researching and preparing my talks, Scrivener is better. An alternative to DevonTHINK could be Evernote, which syncs with the iPhone as well ...

I've had a look at these but none of them really cut it. I used OneNote extensively as a note-taking and note-organising resource on my Toshiba Tablet M200, writing straight into OneNote using the pen on the screen. It is just so intuitive, like having an intelligent pad. I organised my notes using sub-pages and note flags. OneNote 2003 was good, but 2007 was even better. Believe it or not the Mac aspirants (because none of them are equivalents) are really clunky in comparison. Notebook mode in Word 2008 is a pale shadow and comes nowhere near OneNote 2003, let alone 2007.

I suppose you can't have everything in this world. Sad

A20 is already here, so you can stop chanting, but without the release notes I am not sure what features will or won't be present. I haven't downloaded it yet, so I haven't had the chance to poke around.  Surprise

Scrivener isn't designed to be a note-taking application. It's phenomenal for organizing research, outlining, and drafting writing projects. When used for that purpose, it's the best tool by far I've come across.

I didn't like DevonTHINK at first, but after I got beyond the idea that it didn't have a pretty notebook layout and GUI, I found that it was much, much, more more powerful. In fact, the search capabilities are similar to a Bible programme. It even has a fuzzy search.

That said, DevonTHINK does take some getting used to.  It has a big academic community following though.
