More news on Onenote 12

The guys at MS are doing a great job building anticipation for the new version of Office 12 in general and Onenote 12 in particular. Owen Braun just posted more news on the linking behavior in the new version. Probably one of the most requested features for Onenote is the ability to link between pages, sections and notebooks. While you can do this in the current version, it’s not at all pretty. I use Onenote extensively for my Getting Things Done methodology. I use one folder for notebooks and have links between summary pages and the various projects. But the links look like this:

<file://C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\My Notebook\GTD\Projects\Grant Proposal.one>

You can click on this, and it works but it’s ugly and you have to click through a warning box first. “In OneNote 12, when you right-click on a page tab, there's a new menu command called "Copy Hyperlink to this Page…”

I can’t wait for this new version!
