Taking Notes to Another Level with Microsoft OneNote 2013

Sending files to OneNote

When you installed Microsoft Office 2013, you installed a virtual printer called Send To OneNote 2013. You can use this virtual printer to copy the text of any file into OneNote, starting in any application. OneNote calls the copied text a “file printout.”

The Send To OneNote command doesn’t provide a shortcut icon and link to the file along with its copied text in the manner that the File Printout command does, but you can choose which pages of the file to bring into OneNote (the File Printout command does not give you the ability to select the pages you want to copy and place in OneNote).

Send a file to OneNote

  1. In the application from which you want to create a file printout, choose the Print command (or press Ctrl+P)

  2. In the Print window or Print dialog box, choose the Send To OneNote 2013 printer.

  3. Specify a print range (the pages you want to copy to OneNote).

  4. Click Print.

    The Select Location In OneNote dialog box appears.

  5. In the Select Location In OneNote dialog box, select the page where you want the file printout to go and click OK. To create a new page for the file, select a section.
