  • Have you considered using Word for blogging and get all the great formatting capacities of the product even for wordpress?

    • Yes, have considered word, but OneNote works great on my corporate lab top, my iPad, my Mac and my phone. And the data is nicely synchronized between them.
      And I use OneNote more than word in my daily work 😉
