    I vaguely remember that OneNote will be subject of changes, maybe discontinued?
    Who has any news about that?
    And what about ToDo? For now it syncs with OL 365 tasks, but do we know its future?

    Ouch! Just noticed this in @SDH's post https://www.pcworld.com/article/326...6-in-favor-of-the-windows-10-onenote-app.html

    Good: the Win10 OneNote app supports vertical lists for sections and pages.

    Bad: the Win10 OneNote app does not support custom tags Unfortunately, I recently started using custom tags for the GTD Next Action contexts.

    MORAL: never use advanced features of apps. (But, are custom tags "advanced"? I have been using them since 2009, just not for GTD stuff.)

    Bad: I have been using and writing OneTastic macros for OneNote 2016. I will bet that these will break.

    I purchased, and enjoyed, the GTD & OneNote Setup Guide:
    https://store.gettingthingsdone.com/OneNote-for-Windows-Setup-Guide-p/10415.htm

    But this seems to be for OneNote 2016. I hope that it will be updated to mention the Windows 10 OneNote app, and, perhaps, stuff that yu can do in one version of OneNote but not the other.
