Tag Summary and other test cases for tags in OneNote

Here is a test page I created to help explain some further testing around tagged notes. There are 5 items that need me to take action on them (4 exist only in OneNote and the 5th is linked to Outlook). One of my "action items" is important and has a star next to it to…


Working with and testing To Do lists in OneNote

Every so often, I’ll get the same or very similar questions all at once. I’m not sure why this happens, but this last week I received several different variations of this type of request. "I wish there was a way to quickly mark and find all my To Do items." Well, there is, and I’ll…


Printing pages with the Adapx pen, and a plug for an old OneNote powertoy

Did you see Adapx updated their software 2.0 for the CapturX pen? You can finally print your own pages to use with their pen and then import the ink to Onenote. I’ve already tried this a little bit and it works pretty well. The pen has always worked with the physical notebook they give you…

Resizing the ribbon in OneNote 2010: an introduction

We’ve gotten a large amount of feedback on the ribbon in OneNote 2010 beta.  The Ribbon is a shared component across Office and the owners wrote a good introduction on how to make the ribbon smaller and maximizing your page area.  OneNote should start with the ribbon minimized for this reason and here is their…


New functionality for Equation support in OneNote 2010

I’ve mentioned several times that we use persona testing to help define scenarios for OneNote testing. As an example of how that changes the product, I can point to some new behavior with OneNote’s equation editing that changed between the Tech Preview release of OneNote and the Beta of OneNote 2010. Specifically, you can now…
