RELEASE: “OneTastic” – FREE add-in for Microsoft OneNote 2010/2013

imageIn case you missed it, Omer Atay, a developer on the OneNote team released an addin to OneNote called “OneTastic”:

Here’s a look at Onetastic, an add-in to enhance OneNote functionality with a set of built-in features and an extensible macro processor that allows you to download and modify macros and add new ones yourself.

Onetastic features will light up in the Home tab as well as some right-click menus. When you install the add-in, you will see the following buttons added to your Home tab:


Included in OneTastic are:

  • OneCalendar – A standalone application which provides a calendar view into your notes.
  • Favorites – A feature that allows you to bookmark your frequently used pages or sections into the Ribbon, or pin them to your desktop or any folder you choose
  • Custom Styles – The ability to create new customized styles and apply them to quickly format your text.
  • Image Crop – An item is added to the image right-click menu that allows you to crop a selected image.
  • Select Text from Image – Select a small part of the text within an image and copy it instead of converting ALL the text in an image which is the out-of-box behavior.
  • Rotate/Flip Printouts – Easily rotate a printout that is inserted in the wrong orientation.
  • Macros and Macroland – Onetastic has a macro processor and editor which allows you to build macros to perform routine tasks with one click. Macros can create pages and modify page content, like inserting outlines, paragraphs, and tables. If you think this is complicated, don’t worry. Onetastic ships with lots of built-in macros and also features Macroland, where you can download more macros. Following are the built-in macros you can find, which notably include another frequently requested feature called Search & Replace.

Here’s a video that shows these features:
