OneNote for Mac! OneNote is Free! We have a Service API!

Today was a great day – we released “a metric ton” of new stuff. You can read all the details on the team’s official blog. At last we were able to unveil the new OneNote for Mac release. This is something many people have asked for over the years, and the team and I are…

OneNote is 10

OneNote is turning 10 this month. We started with “OneNote 2003” and have made many releases since then, growing in leaps and bounds, along with our user base. If 2003 was its birth, its conception was back in Nov 2000, when Steven Sinofsky and I exchanged some email about creating a new app, a topic…

OneNote in schools

I came across a couple of very interesting videos from two different schools using OneNote in the classroom and with faculty. I thought you might enjoy. You really see the power of pen/ink, freeform writing surface, capturing images and media, and shared notes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW1NjHoRrAY&hd=1  This is from Whitfield School in St. Louis. http://countryday.smugmug.com/Other/HANDBRAKE/10944710_tdfbDJ#!i=1790107080&k=kknrpnZ&lb=1&s=A.

Onetastic – it’s fantastic!

I recently came across a nifty free add-in for OneNote 2010 called Onetastic that provides some capabilities OneNote users have wanted for a while: image rotate and crop, quick text styles, the ability to pin links to any part of your notes to the desktop, and importantly, gives you a “Favorites” list within OneNote itself so…

In case you missed it, the always updating Web Apps (available at http://office.live.com and embedded all over the web) got a refresh yesterday. You can read about it more here: Announcing new features you’ve requested. One of the big ones for me was that the OneNote Web App can now display ink notes. So for…

OneNote Web App, cloud sync of notes, and Ribbon Hero for OneNote

Three great things are newly available. The first is that the web version of OneNote is now available to the public. Here’s the official blog post. This is something I’ve been waiting a long time for, and it nicely solves a few problems: When you want to use OneNote’s multi-user collaboration capabilities with a friend who doesn’t have…

64-bit "Print to OneNote" solution now available

Good old David Rasmussen who is Group Program Manager of OneNote has built (in his “spare” time) a way to send printouts to OneNote 2007 directly on 64-bit Vista and Win7. It’s a little clunkier than the built-in 32-bit only solution that comes with OneNote 2007, but if you use a 64-bit OS like I do you’ve…

I Heart OneNote

There’s a new website called iheartonenote.com. It’s a place to discuss OneNote with other people, share tips, notebooks, etc. So many people post emotional connection stories about OneNote that “heart” seems appropriate (FWIW, last time I checked a piece of software can’t yet have your baby). That Marcus guy seems a little kooky though. I’d only…

Just a quick note today. Mike Tholfsen (OneNote Test Manager / ninja as mentioned a couple of posts ago) has finally started a blog on OneNote in education. Mike has been passionate about this topic for years and it is good to see him starting to talk about it in a blog. We’re seeing OneNote…

Mike Tholfsen, OneNote Ninja!

It’s been awhile since I have posted anything here, and for that I feel shame. It’s just that Dan and John and others are doing such a great job. Another guy who’s doing a great job but isn’t blogging yet (he’s shy) is Mike Tholfsen. Mike is the test manager of the OneNote team, and…
