Thank Heaven for Trial Ware

I recently blogged a recommendation for EverNote note-taking software. It seemed like such a great little program to improve my efficiency in keeping notes on my computer.

An improvement, yes, but three features I needed proved problematic:

  1. The ability to easily create and maintain outlines within a note or document was very cumbersome.
  2. Templates were difficult to create and use, with severe restrictions on editing tools within cells in a template table.
  3. Tables were available only within templates and were difficult to create and use.

So, I expanded my search and was pleasantly surprised to learn that Microsoft OneNote had been significantly upgraded since the 2003 version, which I had tested and found lacking.

So, using a 60-day trial copy, I have really come to like OneNote. Templates are are breeze, tables are easy and the outliner is wonderful. Really worth the extra price for the way I use notes. I shouldn’t have been so hasty to dismiss Microsoft in the first place.
