    OneNote Desktop App Problem


    Hi, I am using the OneNote Desktop App on my windows 10 laptop. The problem is, when I insert my PDF printouts and annotate on the slides, occasionally the slides would become blank leaving only my annotations. This tends to happen for PDF printouts with quite a number of pages. Any way to rectify this so that I don't end up with blank slides?

    :)

    Signing into Onenote app converts local account to microsoft account

    Steps:

    • Sign into a local account
    • Open the OneNote app (tablet not desktop app)
    • Sign in to this app with a Microsoft account
    The local account is then converted into a Microsoft account with that identity.

    This is wrong and unexpected behaviour as no indication is given that the sign in is for the whole of windows rather than just OneNote.

    It is also hard to revert.

    I am guessing that other apps may exhibit the same behaviour.

    In fact I don't understand how an app (which is supposed to be sandboxed and secure) can change user account information.

    • Press Enter.

    Once completed, follow the 2nd method on how to reinstall it.

    Method 2: Reinstall OneNote.

    • Type PowerShell.
    • Right-click on Windows PowerShell (Desktop app).

    • Press Enter.
    Please post back with the result for further assistance.

    OneNote Desktop App Problem

    OneNote app and desktop and quick notes


    I'm using a Surface 3. I installed the OneNote desktop (2016 I think; OneNotes doesn't make it easy to discover which version you're using) alongside the app. Mostly I work in the desktop OneNote, but for a quick note, pressing the top of the stylus and getting straight into taking a note is very convenient.

    I'd swear when I first started doing this, the notes I created with the app appeared in the Quick Notes notebook of the desktop OneNote. Now they don't; they're different ones; older ones I think. Does anyone know how to make notes created in the app appear in a desktop version notebook?
