Microsoft released OneNote 2013 desktop software for free last year, but some of the features were still restricted to the paid version. Microsoft announced today that they have removed all feature restrictions from OneNote 2013. Now you’ll be able to access all the features previously reserved for paid editions:
- Password protected sections: Add a password to protect sensitive information.
- Page history: Easily see or go back to prior versions of a page.
- Audio and video recording: Take notes while recording, and easily jump to the relevant section later.
- Audio search: Search for a word in a voice or video recording.
- Embedded files: Insert Office documents or other files directly in your notebook.
OneNote stores your notes on OneDrive for easy access across all your devices (including smartphones) and works whether you’re online or offline. With your free Microsoft account, you’ll get 15 GB of OneDrive space for free and no limits on the number of notes you can create or sync.
