Could you expand on this? I also feel that organization in Zim could
be needs improvement, but I have no ideas as to how.

There is an open bug for this!

I think that there is a bug for this, at any rate, I remember it being
discussed. I personally hate the idea, but so long as there is an
option to have plain-text paste the default, then I agree that it
should be included.

Graphs? What graphs?

I have a feature request that I have not filed yet, modeled on this
terrific app:

That app, and ListPro, were my "killer apps" for years until I
abandoned my handheld and found Zim. There are still some features
that I lack, however, and I will file those.

Please expand on how this works in OneNote. I use my Nokia's voice
recorder often.

This may be a problem as OCR in Linux is not so good at the moment. Is
it really useful in OneNote?

> Hand-written text recognition

How do you write it, with a tablet or with the mouse? Scan?
