Once your content is captured and saved to OneDrive, it becomes searchable from your Windows PC through the power of Optical Character Recognition, so you’ll never misplace a key idea again.

  1. How to import the scanned documents from CamScanner to Office Lens?

  2. Product is crashing on Android 7.0 Nougat when trying to use with a work account that require Microsoft Intune to be present.

  3. Sorry if Im being dim, but once you snap the image how do you push it to OneDrive and where would it be saved? The only way I see a choice of OneDrive is if I go to the view where it shows all the images I’ve taken and press SAVE ALL.

    This is on iOS10 on an iPhone 6.

  4. On windows 10, is there a way to create a screenshot or do you have to:
    1 open snipping tool
    2 create screen clip
    3 save screen clip to a directory
    4 open office lense
    5 import file
    6 save to onenote
    7 delete screen clip from the directory

    seems like a lot of steps!

    • Two ways I can think of.

      1. IF your using OneNote Desktop application
      a. Windows + Shift +S which brings ups the built in snipping tool
      b. create screen clip
      c. it automatically puts it in to your default Notebook/Section and takes you to OneNote.

      2. If your using the UWP version of OneNote:
      a. do a print screen
      b. open OneNote if not already open
      c. save it into your default Notebook/Section

      3. if it is a browser page and you have OneNote addin and Edge
      a. click the addin
      b. choose what to do
      1. Full Page
      2. Article
      3. Bookmark
      c. Clip
      d. it then wants to take you to the web version of OneNote but you can do that or just ignore and open one of the other two versions.

      Hope that helps.

    • ALT-PRTSCN on the keyboard will capture the active window to clipboard – then CTRl V to paste where you need.
