This appears to be an issue that has plagued OneNote for quite a while through various versions (based on other posts on the same issue).
Has this seemingly elementary issue never been fixed??? OneNote isn't able to find a simple piece of text via any notebook search other than the immediate notebook page.
I have many notebooks I've been using through multiple versions of OneNote. I keep them synced up with my SkyDrive. The index is blatantly obvious under my indexing options. There are no other settings to be had in OneNote options.
What on earth is the solution to this??? Very frustrating that this same issue continues to plague this otherwise impecable product. Please advise.
