Powertoys from the OneNote Test Team for 2010


Every January, I compile a list of the powertoys the test team gave out the previous year. This year, there are a few new ones (table sorting, bulk import images and remove ink from a page) for OneNote 2010 and a section color changer for OneNote 2007. Several updates for getting some of the more popular powertoys to OneNote 2010 happened as well. Here goes:

 New for OneNote 2010:
Table sorting and table of contents:

    Terific but, i can't imagine why, given the wide distribution of onenote now, that

    1. more is made of advertising it.

    2. the toys are not up to date. some like sorting pages alphabetically, the old full page calendar showing all past posts by day (einstein tech?). Surely within Microsoft there must be people who could should be doing these.

    I love onenote and would just like to see it more actively being developed. I don't see any hint yet for a next version or update.
