And if you want to stay with a OneNote-a-like model, it’s worth bearing Outline (macOS, iOS) in mind; it’s OneNote-compatible and has been quietly developing away in the background for quite a few years. It’s a much, much better app than it used to be, now with a proper search function.

The other, totally free and independent app worth mentioning is Growly Notes (macOS only), which is excellent; the developer is ex-Microsoft, and offers a wide range of free software on his website (https://growlybird.com). Growly Notes is basically a OneNote clone, and again, has been around for quite a while.

Neither of them does something which the desktop version of OneNote does still do, namely allow you to fold indented subparagraphs.
