    take no notice/note of

    She spun around to face Joshua, as angry as she could ever remember being at anyone. In the darkness he took no note of it.

    Does 'take no note of' mean the same thing as 'take no notice of to native speakers?

    Thank you in advance.

    No, not really. "Took no note of" means "didn't notice" and "to take no notice of" means "to deliberately ignore".
