Table Sum toy updated for OneNote 2010

I got a couple of user requests recently to update the table sum powertoy that I wrote for OneNote 2007 to work with OneNote 2010. Always happy to oblige, I updated it and here you go. If you just want to install it, the link for the download is below my signature at the bottom…


Source Code for the updated Table Powertoy for OneNote

Just a short note today. Below my signature is the download file for the updates Brad Covell made for the Table of Contents / Table Sorter powertoy for OneNote. If anyone improves this further, feel free to ping me. If it really takes off, maybe we can even get someone to post it on….


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…


Source code for the Bulk Ink Eraser powertoy

The source code for this powertoy is attached below my signature at the end of this column. It’s really just the inkeraserclass.cs  file- everything else is just the setup/interface for it. The code here was fairly straightforward but still took some time for me to understand how to get all the ink on the page….


An addin to help Visual Studio users with moving code to OneNote

David Tinney sent me this really nifty addin for Visual Studio 2008. It lets you copy code with formatting from Visual Studio into OneNote. It’s been a popular request from those folks out there that write a lot of code and I’m glad to see this type of addin get created.  Here’s the short description:…


Calendar/Planner addin updated

  Two events came together to get me to update this powertoy. First, a reader was trying to use this with OneNote 2007 but wanted to customize the date format used. Since I just use whatever format you have defined in Windows, changing the format of the date for this powertoy is the same as…


Some quick notes on updating OneNote 2007 addins for OneNote 2010

I was asked how to do this and wrote up some “down and dirty” notes on what I found works well. Assuming you have a toolbar based addin, here’s the steps to get it working for OneNote 2010 (and only on OneNote 2010): Find and replace “2007” strings in schema namespaces to “2010” Delete the…


Equations and TEX support for OneNote 2007

Couldn’t miss the chance to pass this along.  Dragonshorn Studios released a TEX (equation) editor addin for OneNote 2007.  You can get it at  I have not yet installed or played around with this yet, but it looks very interesting. Questions, comments, concerns and criticisms always welcome,John


An addin for importing from a "Digital Notepad"

Looks like Johan de Konig has written an addin to import ink from a Digital Notepad device from WALTOP.  WALTOP makes a variety of digital surfaces (according to their website). You can read about the addin here:  He goes through the code and how he developed the addin.  It’s a great read to get…


A powertoy to make using Adapx pens for OneNote a little easier for me

I managed to get my hands on a Capturx pen a while back from AdapX. If you haven’t seen these pens, they are pretty nice – you can use their pen and their notebooks to take notes and sync the data to OneNote. It works well, but one aspect of the page their software created…
