Add more features to OneNote with Onetastic add-in

Onetastic comes with several macros, ranging from simple to very complex to demonstrate the capabilities. The add-in enhances the functionality of OneNote via set of built-in features and an extensible macro processor that allows you to download and modify macros as per your preference and even build your own macros.

Image crop

OneNote can also resize the images. How? The add-in adds ‘Crop’ option to the image right-click menu which you can use to crop a desired picture.

OneNote 7

Select Text From Image

OneNote also examines the prescribed region (inserted image) for text systematically and makes it available for search. It allows you to copy the text from an image. while doing so, it copies all the text in the image which at times isn’t essential as you require only a part of it. So, if you want to select a small section and copy it, then Select Text From Image option is readily accessible.

OneNote 8

Rotate/Flip Printouts

A feature that counts as OneNote’s shortfall is its inability to rotate and flip images while getting printouts. Onetastic’s Rotate Printout feature overcomes this shortfall. You can easily rotate a printout that is inserted in the wrong orientation.
