From the example below, I have three notebooks (Civ Pro, Contracts, and Property - red box)
I have selected chapter three, which lists reading topics, cases, major points, etc. This is the current screen. The yellow box contains the pages within this section. These pages are for notes, briefs, outlines, etc. You can create pages as you type with wiki links ([[…] ]) The green box is the search function that searches this entire notebook (or all notebooks) with an option like word (ctrl+F) for each page.
Another feature I like is linking to webpages. At D(e), those link to Fed P. Civ. P. Rules. Currently, I'm adding links to supplements, which will go next to topics. It may appear disorganized, but it is not. The outline comes together quickly.
I'll have to create a tutorial to explain the "really" useful functions for drag and drop outlining, searching and tagging briefs, linking to outlook (tasks and emails created from OneNote),and numerous other options. By the way, I created this with OneNote.
