Source code for the text importer for OneNote

Way back when, the server that held the source code for the text importer got shut down. Since this blogging platform limits me to one attachment per post, I had to post the executable for everyone.  I have received enough requests to let me know that this is a popular enough addin that people want…


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…


OneNote Spy (omspy) for OneNote 2010

Ilya created the OneNote OM Spy tool back in 2007.  Here it is updated for OneNote 2010.  It works much like the original, so I don’t think I need to post a new image or anything like that.  There is one change – you can choose which schema you want to use with the dropdown…


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…


A bulk image importer powertoy for OneNote 2010

  “Vince” wrote to me a while back and asked if there was any way to update the text importer to import JPG files.  It seems he had hundreds of these files for an anatomy class and was getting frustrated with copy/pasting them one at a time into OneNote.  It turns out it was fairly…


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….


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…


Powertoys from the OneNote test team for 2009

The test team has been very busy this year working on OneNote 2010 (you can get the beta here: While we have not had a tremendous amount of free time to create powertoys, I can still dig up the ones that we gave out this year. Adapx Page Expander: This merely expands a…
