OneNote uses a simple folder structure to organise its Sections and Sub-Sections - a Section is a file, a Sub-Section is a subfolder within the notebook which contains its own Section files.
What I'd like to do is create directory symbolic links within each Notebook that lead to another notebook - so a link to a folder elsewhere rather than within the notebook. I want to create a single master notebook that contains a collection of remote user notebooks - the users will run their notebooks as normal, the master notebook will be updated with all the subnotebooks.
I believe it should work, as creating subfolders manually or copying another notebook into the 'master' works. Whenever I've tried using
mklink /d or
/j to achieve this (both on local folders and remote servers) OneNote ignores them. Creating a local subfolder manually is picked up by OneNote within seconds.
My impression is that OneNote is using a deeper file system access than most applications. Has anyone else seen this or can comment?
