This program allows you create notebooks for projects, meetings, tasks or just screenshots of web pages. Create a notebook, then add headings and notes, insert a screen capture from any program on your computer, add audio, video, and other files from your computer or use a screen capture in a document, Outlook emails and meeting requests.
