Hi
I'm looking for the best mac alternative to OneNote.
The only 2 things i really need are:
- multi-level tabs. Like in OneNote, it has horizontal maintabs and vertical subtabs. I need something similar to that, i don't care exactly how it looks.
- some sort of drawing-tool. In OneNote I can easily make squares, strokes, arrows and stuff like that. That would be nice to have too.

Does anyone know a mac application which has both or one of theese features?

Thanks
Michael

The usual suggestions for users looking to replace OneNote on their macs are:

http://www.circusponies.com/
http://www.barebones.com/products/yojimbo/
www.omnigroup.com/applications/omnioutliner/
journler.com/

Circus Ponies has some sort of tab function, as does Journler.. but I'm not sure if they're similar to what you're looking for.

Word for Mac. Use the Notebook view.

Hi thanks for you replies.

I've checked out the suggested applications. Many of them are pretty similar i think. They are a bit to complicated for me, and I can't really find a decent way to format text, insert images etc.

The only purpose of the application I'm looking for is taking notes in class.
I would like to give each class a specific tab. And for each class I would like some sort of subfanes for dividing the class into main subjects.
And when I take notes I like using arrows and squares to point out important stuff, visualizing connections etc.

Using word:mac's notebook view is very close to what I need. But I don't have the option of making subfanes for each fane, and because the fanes are vertical they are hard to read. A solution could be to make a word-file for each class, but I like having it all together. And when the document is in notebook view I can't draw stuff :-)

Please feel free to post other applications.

Thanks
Michael

Download the 30-day trial for Circus Ponies Notebook. I just did that today and transcribed a few day's worth of notes. I have to say it is very simple to use after only a few minutes of getting used to it. You can have a separate notebook for each class, and tabs in that notebook for different things. The program automatically creates and updates a table of contents and searchable index for each notebook as you work.

I just worked with outlines tonight, but I'm pretty much already sold on the program and plan on buying a permanent key for it. I'm anxious to learn more of the ins and outs in order to get the most out of it. There is a message board on their website where you can get more in-depth help and info, too.

(Another cool feature is that it will translate your work into HTML so you can post it online and share/let others view your work in the exact same format. This would be great for online study groups.)

EDIT: Look Here for a LOT more info on this type of thing. I just found this site, but this guy offers a wealth of information regarding using your Mac as a student, law or otherwise. Check out his main page, too. I have it bookmarked and check up on it daily.
