    Not that cut and dry - the easiest way is use the Vol Down/Power Screenshot shortcut then import the screen grab, there are also some good screen snipping tools in the Google Play Store that will allow you get part of the screen...

    Yea, that's what I was thinking. Was hoping Microsoft did some magic with Android so we could lasso tool stuff and just throw it into OneNote from anywhere.

    Finally sold my Z Canvas and bought a Surface Duo. Going to be joining the ranks.

    Will see if I can streamline this and make it useful in a healthcare setting. I've been using a regular pen and small notebook while running around in the hospital. Using OneNote things will obviously be synced to my laptop, but I'm hoping I can maybe find a way to speed things up, copy and paste from medical records, etc.

    Taking pictures of stuff as I'm doing physical exams and throwing it right into OneNote might be fantastic.

    Or it'll just complicate things. Won't know until I try.

    I did receive it, just haven't had time to even play with it yet. It is a really nice device and I usually don't put cases on my phones, but I think for this one I'm going to invest in the bumper. The added friction on a table and the protection I think will be needed in the hospital. If you want to chat via PM and if you're not in a rush to get one, if I don't find it useful for my specific situation I'll pass it along to you for the same price I got it for.

    Anyone using a skin on theirs?

    I will say after playing with this a little bit, ZTE Axon M was way ahead of its time. I used that device for a year and a half, and the implementation of many things was actually quite good and easier than the Duo. This isn't my first rodeo with a dual screen device.

    Do any of you store the Duo with glass out (phone mode) for any period of time?
