OneNote—what’s new in January 2016

When writing our New Year’s resolutions, we challenged ourselves to answer just one question: How do we make 2016 the best year yet for OneNote users? To that end, we’re thrilled to announce the number of features we’ve released in the past few weeks.

Insert shapes on Mac

Sick of circling things? Keeping chart axes straight have your mood slopin’ down? We’ve got your back. You can now add perfectly crisp lines, polygons and other geometric shapes from the Insert menu.

Search all OneDrive notebooks on Mac and iOS

We spiffed up Search over the holidays and added some new tricks! Now you can search all of your OneDrive notebooks—even if they’re not on your device. You can even search for things you’re currently reading.

Publish notebooks publicly on Docs.com

It is easier than ever to share your notes with the world with Docs.com, which lets you make notebooks accessible for others to copy and use with just a single tap.

Whether it’s a notebook that details must-see sights and local hangouts, a lesson plan fellow teachers are clamoring to use in their classrooms or those Chem 101 notes your fellow freshmen are begging for—you can share your notebooks on Docs.com. Try it out today.

Me-me-me-me (at work, works!)

Forget-me-now

Done for the semester? You can now remove notebooks you’re finished with from the list of notebooks displayed in OneNote Online.

Firefox and Safari users rejoice—clip with abandon

You now have the OneNote Clipper extension in all of its glory (and functionality) including Region mode clipping on Firefox and Safari browsers. Of course, we still have it for Chrome as well.

Office Lens built in

Never lose a white-boarding session or homework assignment again. Now you can scan documents right into OneNote with a single tap with our fresh-off-the-software-presses Office Lens integration in OneNote for Windows 10.
