We launched OneNote for Mac last month, and today we’re delivering the first major update that includes some of the top-requested features, including print, copy and paste improvements, drag and drop pictures and more. Download it for free right now in the Mac App Store and read on for details about the improvements in this update.
Printing is one of the top requests we’ve received since OneNote for Mac launched in March and we worked hard to get this feature to you quickly, only one month later. You can now print out your lecture notes, travel itineraries, recipes and more. Just select a page and use the standard print dialog. You can also save the page as a PDF file.
Copy and paste formatted content
Using OneNote to collect and organize content from other sources is essential for projects such as a house remodel, class research or travel planning. Whether it’s formatted text from a Word document, tables from Excel or webpages, rich content is easy to capture and place in your notes with the original formatting preserved.
Drag and drop pictures
With our continuous effort to improve the experience of capturing content in OneNote, we’re also happy to share that we’ve added the ability to drag and drop pictures in to OneNote.
If you’re browsing the web and find some pictures you want to capture fast, you can easily drag and drop them into your OneNote page. Or if you have a collection of photos already on your device, you can drag and drop multiple photos from Finder into OneNote.
Speaking of photos, in this update we also added some additional tools to format pictures in OneNote. You can restore the size of a picture if it’s been modified from its original state and also rotate pictures.
Sometimes hyperlinks can be long, and they’re not always self-explanatory. Now you can keep your notes organized by adding a display name for links in your notes.
Format Painter is a handy tool you may recognize from other Office applications, and you can use it to apply the same text formatting quickly throughout your notes. For example, if you copy and paste content from several sources with different formats, you can use Format Painter to apply the same consistent format across all of the content. Once you start using this tool, you won’t want to stop.
We hope you’ll enjoy all the new capabilities of this update. Go to the Mac App Store and download it for free today, or check out OneNote.com to learn more about OneNote and download other OneNote apps for all your other devices.
Since we launched OneNote for Mac last month, we’ve spent time reading through your feedback and feature requests and it really helps us to know what features are most important to you. So thank you for the ongoing feedback and please keep it coming!
We know many of you want SharePoint and Office 365 (Organization Account) support for using OneNote at work, and we wanted to let you know that we’re working really hard to make that happen. Stay tuned for a future update.
