A developer on the OneNote team, has written a set of tool called “Onetastic.” If you use your notebooks to manage your to-do list or as a repository of miscellaneous thoughts, you’ll find OneCalendar extremely useful for looking through your usage history.
This PowerToy for OneNote 2010 adds three new features:
- Rotate/flip printout pages
When you print a document to OneNote, sometimes one of the pages needs to be in landscape orientation or you may have forgotten to select “Landscape” for the whole document when to printing. OneNote has a rotate/flip option on images but the same feature was left out for printout pages. Install Onetastic and you can now right click any printout page and rotate or flip it.
- Cleanup printout files
When you delete a page of a multi-page printout, OneNote will display a message at the top of the page that reads: “One or more pages of the Printout below are hidden. To remove this message, delete all pages of the Printout below”. This message tries to tell you that the file that backs the printout still contains the pages you deleted, so if you were to share the OneNote page with someone else, they can still extract those pages. However many users including me found the message confusing and there is no way to get rid of it even if you fully understand what it is trying to say. Onetastic provides a button on the ribbon to clean up the backing document for the printout by removing the pages you deleted from the file and remove the message.
OneCalendar is a standalone tool that provides a calendar view for OneNote. It displays the pages on the date you created or last modified them. Find more info on the OneCalendar page.
