OneNote Should allow same concept of folders on harddrive
I am new to OneNote and have a hardtime converting my local files up to OneNote. The major problem is that once I created a NoteBook and Section everythingelse comes as a page. There is no way to easily change the NoteBook name to a Section.
This is difficult when planning my notes because I do not know if a subject I am taking notes will turn into a main folder(section) and how many sub-sections will it need.
Having NoteBook -> Section -> Pages. is not enough for me.
Make everything, simply FOLDERS. Get rid of sections and section groups!
Merge OneNote "Section/Section Groups" concept into just "Folders". Put pages anywhere.
Differentiating between Section and Section groups are a waste and gets messy and awkward. Merge both concepts into a single idea: "folders"
Make sections and section groups into a single concept called "folders", just like File Explorer uses. This way you don't have to make a section AND a section group when you want to add a new page under a new topic. This would reduce a lot of clutter and would also allow pages to be put anywhere (notebook level, section group, or sections).
From a new user's perspective:
- a Notebook is a folder
- a Section is a sub-folder (inside a Notebook "folder")
- a Page is a file or document (inside a Section "folder" inside Notebook "folder")
Why does OneNote assume that every file fits nicely into exactly 2 folders? Why does OneNote impose this 2-level hierarchy? Why doesn't it just have files and folders like everything else?
This is especially awkward with "Quick Notes." If OneNote didn't impose this 2-level hierarchy, Quick Notes would just be added to the top-level, without having to specify a Notebook and create a "Quick Notes" section.
