Today’s Thoughts From Rick:
Yesterday’s post I mentioned I was working with Microsoft OneNote and setting it up as my primary note-keeping application. So far, everything is working as expected; however, one hiccup I did run into was using the app on my Android phone. I loaded one of the OneNote widgets (which gave me a shortcut to directly open a new note) and every time I would tap on the widget to create that new note, I would get the following type of error “please make sure your notebook is synced and default section is set”… I went to the virtual part of my brain, called “Google”, searched for this problem, and the solution is this. In the OneNote app on your phone, do this; -1. Press and hold the section you want to set as default; THEN, 2. Click on Menu (3 vertical dots on top right)> Set as default. This fixed the problem immediately. OneNote is a great (FREE) application; but, Microsoft still has some polishing to do. Do I recommend it? AND, the answer is YES. OneNote is a cross-platform application and if you use the latest version of Windows 10, it is already installed.
