OneNote Limit Maximum value
|Limit||Maximum value||Limit type||Notes|
|Number of Sections and Section Groups in a OneNote Notebook (on SharePoint)||See limit for “Documents” in List and library limits||Each section counts as one folder and one document in the list. Each section group counts as one folder and one document in the list.|
|Maximum size of a section||See limit for “File size” in List and library limits||This maximum excludes any images, embedded files, and XPS printouts to OneNote that are larger than 100 KB. Images and embedded files larger than 100 KB are split out into their own binary files. This means that a section with 100 KB of typed data and four embedded Word documents of 1 MB each will be considered a 100 KB section.|
|Maximum size of an image, embedded file, and XPS OneNote printout in a OneNote section.||See limit for “File size” in List and library limits||Each item is stored as a separate binary file and is therefore subject to file size limits. Each print operation to OneNote will result in one XPS printout binary, even if the printout contains multiple pages.|
|Maximum size of all images, embedded files, and XPS printouts in a single OneNote page.||Default limit is double the “File size” limit.||Threshold||This applies to embedded content in a single OneNote page, not a Section or Notebook. If users encounter this, they will see the following error in OneNote: jerrcStorageUrl_HotTableFull (0xE0000794). Users can work around this by splitting embedded content into different pages and deleting previous versions of the page. If users have to adjust this value (“Max Hot Table Size”), the effective limit is half of the absolute value they define (for example, specifying a 400 MB max hot table size means that the maximum size of all embedded content on a page is limited to 200 MB).|
|Merge operations||One per CPU core per Web server||Boundary||OneNote merges combine changes from multiple users who are co-authoring a notebook. If no CPU core is available to run a merge, a conflict page is generated instead, which forces the user perform the merge manually).
This limit applies whether OneNote is running as a client application or as a Microsoft Office Web Apps.
