Use a touch screen portable monitor with OneNote. Feat. Wimaxit Portable Monitor
I find typing notes much easier, but when it comes to marking up documents or making annotations its much more intuitive to work directly on the screen, whether with a pen like this or even with my fingers, if you have something like a Surface tablet, then youre all Set but I dont have one so Ive been experimenting with different things like using a pen tablet and even an iPad Pro, along with the desktop version of OneNote, and you can check those videos out up here and in the description below. I recently got an external touch screen, monitor courtesy of a vendor named andesign and Ive, been playing around to discover practical use for it, and what I found was that it works remarkably well with OneNote just like any other monitor. It offers an additional display. So I can pretty much keep my OneNote on this screen all the time and because its touch screen, I can use the drawing tools, just as if I was on a tablet PC. So if I want to review and mark up a document Ill insert it as a printout, well go to insert and choose file print out and select the appropriate document. I always make it a habit to set the picture as background. If I know, if Im going to mark it up this way, I dont accidentally move the document around and cause all of the markup to be out of place. Now I can easily zoom into a section use a highlighter Circle.
Things with a pen draw shapes and I can easily switch between drawing and panning around the document by toggling this button on or off and thats the other thing about the touch screen, its so intuitive to move around onenotes Infinite Canvas using my fingers as many of The OneNote users have experienced, although you can scroll up and down and even zoom in and out using the mouse scroll wheel, you can easily go left and right unless you have a special Mouse with a horizontal scroll with the touchscreen. It Feels So natural to move around the canvas quickly and its also very responsive. The monitor that Im using is a 15.6 inch y max it multi touch portable, monitor Ill put the model number in the description below again. A company name and design sent this to me for free in exchange for a review so Im going to spend a moment. Sharing my thoughts on this monitor the monitor has a 16 by 9 aspect ratio and a full HD 1080p resolution. I think this is perfectly fine for working on documents and watching videos, along with the monitor you get. This magnetic cover a DC power, adapter USBC to USBC, cable, a USBC to USB a cable and an HDMI to Mini HDMI cable, and it has a vessel mount in the back on the monitor. It has two USBC input: ports and One Mini HDMI port. It even has a micro USB port that you can use with an OTG adapter to connect to things like a keyboard directly to the monitor.
Something like this would be useful if youre, using this monitor with a smartphone. The monitor has what feels like metal construction. It feels very solid. The downside is that it is a bit heavy coming in at almost 900 grams, which is just under two pounds and thats without the cover, with the cover its 1273 grams, which is 2 pounds and 13 ounces. This is not a monitor that I carry around, but its great for, if I want to move around in my house for a change in scenery and the large screen size at 15.6. Inches makes it a really nice companion for my laptop, which has a smaller 14 inch display. The cover has a magnet that attaches easily to the back of the monitor and the ridges on the cover allow for different viewing angles. I never thought Id need a touchscreen monitor, but having used it for a few days now, I find it super useful, its like having a large iPad from interfacing with media players like YouTube and Spotify to viewing photos and documents and, of course, working with OneNote. This is a really fun and practical addition to my office setup theres. One thing that I want to call out with this monitor if you are making a USBC to USBC connection, theres no problem its Plug and Play. But if your computer doesnt have a USBC Port like my desktop PC, then you need to connect both the HDMI and the USB a cables from your computer to the monitors, mini HDMI and USBC ports.
The HDMI cable will deliver the video signal and the USB cable will deliver the power and the touch signal. This was not clear to me in the manual, so I thought I could only use it as a non touch display when connecting to a computer that didnt have a USBC output, but Im happy to report that that isnt the case, if you are using the second Option with the two cables make sure that the portable monitor is set up as the main display you can do this in the windows display settings. If you dont do this, your touchscreen signal will be applied to whatever monitor you have set up as the primary, and I was initially very confused at this anyway, because this monitor accepts HDMI signal. You can use it as a non touch screen display for any device that outputs HDMI signal like this Nintendo switch overall. I think this is a great Monitor and it has taken up permanent space on my desk. The price is really reasonable, as well coming in at just under 200 dollars.
