what program is best to take notes during class with a macbook?
After "borrowing" a copy from a friend, I now use Word 08 which has a nice notebook view which kind of replicates OneNote. Admittedly, it is not too fantastic, and adding bullets gets a bit too complicated for what it is, since you have to keep the toolbox window open to add them in . For some classes, I still use OneNote which I installed on a bootcamp partition.
I swear by text edit... Command + B to Bold new headings...
That's all I ever need....one long file per class so I can search easily within the document. Plus it opens quickly...
i used to use google dox, but for really straight forward notes i like gmail as well.
I do the same thing except with Pages.
Paper and Pen? Thats the easiest way of all.
If your set on using a computer then text edit.
I'm used to using Word 08. Looks nice
Seriously... I use PhotoshopCS and the paintbrush tool...
It's very functional...
notebook view in word works for me.
blah totally forgot my badddd er
i use adobe cs3 premium but for other stuff lik for what its used for
Real Men Use Photoshop.
taking notes like that would take forever
i used pages for grade 12 on macbook air
Bad idea for a post. Read the Terms of Service.
On topic: The rare few times I take notes on a laptop in class I use TextEdit. I've found that most instructors get annoyed trying to talk over the clickety-clack of people typing unless it's a class in a computer lab or large lecture hall.
holy crap forgot but like is it not illegal in canada cause like ...?
stealing software in canada is still illegal
its the music business thats different
meh the isps do nothing and no one i know has ever gotten caught but ffor the person with notes u can use open office if you have x11 i belive u need it in order to install open office its free
I use Word's notebook view.
Possible alternative is NeoOffice. I also very much enjoy WriteRoom when I have an "easily distracted" phase.
Wow that notebook view thing is hot.. never new about that.
what is this "notebook view"
anyone care to post a screenshot? i have a pc atm with word2007 but cant figure out this view...thinking its a mac office 08 thing...
thanks in advance
I use VoodooPad. It's lightweight, and it can be as complex or as simple as I need it to be. Failing that, TextEdit would be my go-to app. I have Pages and I have NeoOffice, but I think they're overkill for class notes. For that purpose I want something that's quick to load, quick to save, stable, and not too distracting. VoodooPad is more like a wiki than a notebook, you put in little links to other pages of your notes. The coolest thing is that VoodooPad happily exports your notes to your iPod--and the links still work on the iPod! It's also very keyboard friendly.
nice [screenshot disappeared (maybe cuz of innapropriate language lol)]
i guess its a mac office thing cuz the pc version def doesnt have that...anyways another reason to look forward to my mac at the end of the month!
I switch back and forth between Pages and Word '08 (Word '04 prior), and I haven't taken notes in the past 2 years with anything but a MB in the classroom!
Just use TextEdit,..or maybe stickies .. haha
VoodooPad from FlyingMeat.com
Don't need a computer for class notes. Can convert them later and it
helps you remember the content.
