I've just started playing around with the Beta of OneNote 2010. One of the new features is linked notes, If I have a word doc, explorer window, outlook contact, etc. open while working on a note, it links that to the note automatically. I don't know what it would take or if this can even work with L4, but if it could the application would be extremely valuable.

Philip, is one of your goals with OneNote something like a master notes repository where you can store all your Bible related notes, given you have one or more Bible software packages?

I guess right now my goal is to explore how I want to manage notes. I do want to see what Logos comes up with as far as an importer, but Onenote is more feature rich and would be a great place for all my notes (board meetings, Contacts, etc.)

yes, i would like a way to link it.  Embedding it (like MindManager software does with IE browser within its "mind mapping" software would be an additional feature that would make the ability to link even more useful

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Linked notes in Onenote 2010 is a very cool feature. I am trying to think how it would work with resources and with notes/clippings. The problem I see is that the link in OneNote is to a location in a document so each open resource would have to be linked (OneNote linking does allow multiple linked documents) but they each have to be established. So before a paragraph could be linked to a resource the document would have to be linked. But it could possible work and might be really cool.

It may be easier to just enhance/simplify the ability to make resource links to external resources.

Drag tab to external document (OneNote, Word processor) similar to dragging to favorites or the toolbar. When they are dropped in the document a short text label and the resource hyperlink is added just like to the favorites window. Same thing could be done with the CTRL+ALT+C keyboard shortcut (or another keyboard shortcut) then CTRL+V to past the resource hyperlink with resource label text in the destination document.

Funny there should be a post about OneNote 2010 here. I was exploring a trial version of OneNote over the weekend and got to thinking that this could be a powerful mnistry tool. Would you guys say that it is worth the price to go ahead and buy OneNote? Or would I be wasting my money? I'm thinking that there's lot's of promise with OneNote.

I think it is well worth the $.  I do all my sermon prep, journaling, and note taking in onenote (2007). 

One of my favorite features - make a guide of some sort, lets say you have a study guide for bible study.  Scan that guide in as a picture, then set it as a background for a   onenote template.  I even use this for my weekly planning:.  I tried the free version of evernote, but it will not let you write over the top of another note, which is really helpful when doing sermon prep.  If you have seen Marks videos on making a sermon in L4, he writes the scripture out on paper, and put notes all over that.  You can do that with onenote without the paper!

 The drawback, it takes 3 programs to do all this - L4, onenote, and then wood processor.

I was thinking of staring a onenote thread and have everyone who uses it share their best ideas and practices, but I think that is against the rules now a days.

That last program would be especially difficult to work with.  And NOISY.  Would you recommend Craftmen or Black & Decker?

 

sry, that was just too funny (your typo, not my retort!)

 

I might try your thing.  Why do you have to scan?  Can't you just make a table and save it as some kind of template?

What makes that typo even more funny - the other forum I spend time in is called hearth.com, and is about heating your house with wood - which is how I heat my house.  Maybe a Freudian slip rather than a typo.  Smile  

I scan them, or turn them into pictures so they are background, and don't change as I change things on top of them.  There are other ways, as you said you can just make a table, I just find that I like it as background, it works the best for me.  

You don't have to scan, your can create it in paint or publisher, or whatever will save it as a .jpg.  In fact I think I created that one in publisher, and saved it as a jpg.

I would be interested to see how other guys use OneNote, notonly in L4 Bible study, but also ministry in general.

I, also, would be quite interested in this!

this is using the OneNote 2010 beta... and this is what I'm still using as my system for taking notes/outlining... although I use the notes in L4 for jotting notes & questions that I need to answer/investigate while studying, much like Mark Barnes does

I use One Note 2007 and will install One Note 2010 when it is out of Beta. In response to Jarred's question above here is how I plan to use One Note (I do not see a way to link One Note to Logos 4 at this time but it would be great if it did).

I have created a One Note Workbook That will have a Tab for each Book of he Bible. The Book Tab will have Book overview for general Bible Book notes. Within the Book Tab I create new pages that match the Book Pericope, such as Genesis 1:1-2:3. Then within these pages I wil lcreate subpages that are specific to a verse or a group of verses.

Mnay times my personal notes or commentary on a verse(s) can be lengthy. From One Note I can link to external documents such as Word documents that I have created. I also like that that when I copy a resource into One Note it automatically captures the source information. I can link specific notes to Word documents and other files within One Note.

I will use Logos 4 to have a brief note linked to verse(s) or word(s) but will keep my more extensive notes in One Note. I will also use the clippings feature in Logos 4 to capture the 3X5 index cards for resources in Logos 4. But I will copy those clippings to One Note as needed. Notes in One Note can be linked to other notes in other Bible books in One Note.

I don't see (unless someone can show me) a seamless link between One Note and Logos 4. Since I desire a commentary and book writting tool, I will use One Note as the hub that stores information that I want ti use for writting commentaries and books. Books will be produced in Word (I have special book writing interface with Word). Everything will be using Logos 4 as the main resource (I have some resoures that are not in Logos), Word will be used to produce the documents, and One Note wil be used to gather all resoure information (notes, clips, other files) in to one place for use in Word documents or PDF's.

One Note is a great place to organize thoughts, notes, and ideas along with tracking progress on a writting project. Just wanted to share how I use One Note.

Thanks

Mick

First I use Onenote for sermon prep:  This week I a preaching from Psalm 127, I have Preaching Notebook / Old Testament Section / Psalm Tab / Psalm 127 page.  On that page is:  1. Basic notes on the "big idea",  2. All of Psalm 127 in 26 bold font, that is double space (have to do this manually).  Then in that space are notes about words, questions, ideas, all kinds of stuff that I thought of.  Mark Barnes has a video on sermon prep, he does this on paper - but it is the same idea.  3.  I copy and paste all of the info from L4 to this page.  This is the stuff that you'd like to put in notes and clippings in L4, but ....   .  I also copy and paste the link in case I want to go back to the source.  (I have just started to play with onenote 10, so not sure how the new link stuff works).  I can highlight this stuff, I can bold it, I can write a note next to it, I can make comments about it here.  This is great sermon fodder, and where I take quotes from.  (Any other info you might want to include could also go here, for example if you read a sermon on this subject on a sermon sight, you could cut and paste it here also, which automatically inserts a hyper-link)  4. A basic outline of the sermon.

After all that, I use word (or wood as in my previous post) to write my sermon, with the big idea now fully developed cut and pasted to the top of the word document.

Second I use onenote for journaling - again I am able to cut and paste things from bible readings, or things that just strike me as interesting during the day into that notebook.  What is nice here is that by using office live sync, I can journal in my notebook, or on my work computer or on my home computer, it all shows up everywhere.

I also use it for gathering illustrations, just cut and paste and title and tag.  I have to admit, I have a lot of illustrations, I hardly ever use them.

The notebooks I keep open are: Personal, Work ( I am a part time pastor, so is this tab for the other full time job), Ministry, Preaching (includes illustrations), Contacts, IT, Receipts.  I have a few more notebooks which I have started, but don't use them now, so they are not opened.

Major drawback - all this work is not searchable in L4.  But I would do it on a yellow pad by hand if I had to use notes and clippings.

Thanks for your input on how you use One Note. It is a powerful application and is pretty mush user defined on how you want to use it. The interface with most other Microsoft applications gives it lots of power.

My laptop is a tablet and so I can even taken hand-written notes in it and then convert the hand-written into typed notes.

Thanks Mick

brings new meaning to the task, "cut and paste!"

i gather you are just making sure all your work doesn't crash . . . but I have been using OneNote 2010 beta for a few months with absolutely no problems.  And I love the ribbon on it, and other minor improvements.

Dan,

My sister and I have special Enterprise License with Microsoft. As soon as The Microsoft Office Enterprise 2010 is out of beta we will get our copies of the software automatically. I usually wait to upgrade to newer releases when we get our copy. I could download the beta and I might since you mentioned it, but I typically wait for the full Office release.

Thanks Mick
