  1. Still missing something.

    I have a box account. I moved my OneNote notebooks to a folder on box. I did this by
    1) opening OneNote on my PC
    2) right clicking the notebook I wanted to share to my IPAD Outline+ app and selecting properties.
    3) In properties”Path” I clicked change location and moved it to my Box directory. System took a couple minutes to complete the move.
    4) I opened Outline+ and configured Box.
    5) I select Open From Box to load the notebook… couple of minutes to complete.
    6) Now I can open the Notebook on my computer but my edits don’t seem to reflect on PC OneNotes….. I hit the manual sync on my ipad app… I did the manual sync on my PC “Box” just to make sure all that hapens… but I don’t see the pages matched up between my IPAD and PC.

    iPad Outline+pp is up to date.
    PC is running version 14.0.6129.5000

    Please help.

    thanks,
    Al
