OneNote should create the default Personal notebook on Onedrive. It creates the notebook in the Documents folder on Onedrive. Can you see that folder via the browser? Unfortunately the OneNote app on Windows Phone doesn't allow you to move sections or notebooks around like you can on the Desktop client/Windows 8 app. If you don't have Windows 8 or a ...

An Open notebook allows for syncing to keep everything up to date on the device. If you "close" the notebook, then changes to that notebook won't take effect on your phone until you open it again.

There isn't any action history in OneNote for Windows Phone / Windows 10 Mobile. If you made some unwanted changes, the only few ways to get back to the last good version I can think of are : Access previous versions history from OneNote Online, or also OneNote on your computer if available.

Yes, you can access OneNote notes even on offilne mode though you can access only upto last synchronized notes. If you have made all the notes on your phone itself then all the notes will be available and if you have made notes through your PC's OneNote App then you have to synchronize it with your phone.

Just figured out how to remove paragraph spacing in OneNote Online: Select the text you want to re-format. Click the HOME tab at the top. Click the down arrow in STYLES.

The recordig is being saved within your OneNote document so there's no way to access it through the file explorer (neither on the phone nor when conencting it to the pc). When your document is synced to the cloud you can either download your audio file by opening the web-version of OneNote or by extracting it through the desktop version (for both right-...

The solution I went for, which is hardly really deserving of the word "solution", is that I realized that OneNote has the structure of Notebooks -> Sections -> Pages Synchronization happens independently for each Notebook. So I created a new Notebook in the web created new pages there copy/pasted my content across Of course the formatting was messed up,...

Its easier to download media from OneNote...through your computer. OneNote on the desktop allows you to right click on a media file within the note and choose an option of downloading the media or, in the case of .mp3 files, to play/preview then I advise that you open OneNote on your computer, syncronize it, making sure that the same account on your ...

I encountered the same problem on my iOS Notes app on my iPad. I had to just cut the entry, then paste it to a new note at the preferred destination. In your case, this is the OneDrive notebook. Even with a few dozen entries, you will be finished with the manual process before you get another answer.

Don't worry. I have experienced it before, until I found that you just have to wait. Turn your data connection on (in my case, wifi) and wait for a couple of seconds until the app synchronises. Then, the delete option will become available. Try it. So, as I said, you just have to wait depending on your data or wifi speed. I had to wait about 23seconds. ...
