I love this Firefox extension for OneNote, I use it all of the time and I think it is great.
A few notes:
- This was very simple to make what the author did was to tell Firefox to copy the selection and then he calls “onenote.exe /paste” which will paste the current clipboard into the current page but he also calls “OneNote.exe /sidenote” which launches a new side note.
- I love it because right when I am the middle of something I can right-click and chose to send to OneNote and it is right where my mouse cursor is.
- It saves me time
Why am I writing about this? Well if you use Firefox, like I do, then I would recommend that you check out this tool. On the other hand if you use Internet Explorer I recommend that you use the Send to OneNote from Internet Explorer powertoy or if you are using OneNote 2007 then we will have this right in the box when you install OneNote 2007!
Why am I blogging about this? Well first of all I wanted to show you just how easy it is to create OneNote powertoys. You can easily have your app send information to OneNote. Also if you know the author of this powertoy you might want to recommend that he/she change the max version tag in the install script so that is installs in Firefox >1.5 (currently we are @ 184.108.40.206). I think the Firefox extension folks might want to have a better way of getting this to work, I have even seen the extension which allows you to open all older extensions, just seems like a vicious circle.
