In math-based classes, using a computer to take notes can be challenging due to the difficulties with typing equations. OneNote by Microsoft includes a built-in tool for writing equations, but many of its features can only be accessed by using keyboard shortcuts that are hardly ever documented. This is how I would use the equation editor:
- Wherever you want to insert an equation in the note, click.
- On the Draw tab, click.
- Convert group should be expanded.
- Select Math to Ink.
- As soon as the cursor enters writing mode, you can begin entering the equation.
- Write an equation down.
- OneNote automatically types out your numbers and symbols as you write them.
- As you write, you will discover that the type conversion is not always accurate.
- Select "Erase" from the menu.
- Click any mistakes.
- Select "Write" from the menu.
- the letter or number again.
- Press Insert.
- It looks much better than if you had attempted to type the formula because it has been added to the page.
