OneNote Web Exporter

Dave Tse has created a really cool OneNote Web Exporter and released it via CodePlex (MS Open Source)…

What is this for?
The OneNote Web Exporter allows you to export a OneNote notebook as html files that anybody can view through a web browser.

How does it work?
You give it a OneNote 2007 Notebook and it will generate an html page and a folder containing all of the notebook data.

What can I do with it?

  • Export a notebook when you need to send it to somebody who doesn’t have OneNote 2007
  • Maintain a browser accessible version of your notebook by scheduling a daily export to a SharePoint server

  1. Would it be possible to have the French accentuated characters on the tabs?

    An other matter: How many pages is it possible to create in one section? Is there a litmited number? I have noticed that the searching capability fails if the number is too high.

    Thank you for help.

  3. I've downloaded it and run the msi, but I can't seem to figure out how to launch it. Is there supposed to be a new menu item in one note or is it a standalone program? I can't seem to find it in any case.

    What am I missing?

  5. It's the globe icon to the right of the zoom dropdown box.

    See the installation instructions for an image of it ;)

  7. Same problem as datarat: I don't have a globe either?

  8. Problem solved – I had removed the select-a-font scrollbox from the toolbar. I uninstalled Webber, reinstalled, and there was the globe.

  13. Thanks! The icon was hidden as unused, and I wasn't sure what it looked like. Great Plugin!

  15. This is nice, but… is there anywhere a web-standards-compliant cross-browser compatible-HTML4 version? This still outputs the main pages in .mht format, which is basically a bunch of CDATA-enclosed proprietary MS-XML — when boiled down, it just looks like a bunch of tables to me! (I'm not even daring to ask if there's an XHTML non-table something out there…that would be pushing it) But… Does such a thing exist?

  17. Is there a way to get it to work on Vista (Business)?
    Cheers!

  19. Is there a way for this to work with vista? When the click on the globe, nothing happens. I can only run the program through the command prompt and it still doesn't produce the correct files.

  22. Stumbled on Potential Solution to the Fading Globe

    I had tried several times to get to work on my Vista Business machine with no luck. i tried all the various suggestions bt none seemed too work after hours and hours of trial and error. I would give and go back after a couple of weeks to try again, many times.

    Just today I installed the ppTplex tool/toy for MS PowerPoint (from MS OfficeLabs). Fortunately or Unfortunately, I couldn’t get that to work on my vista.

    The simple solution was that I turn on Vista’s UAC!!!

    What I did is I uninstalled the pptPlex, turned on the UAC, restarted my machine, reinstalled the pptPplex… The pptPlex was now working and so I decided may be I should take another look at the good old Cwebber and voila! it worked.

    Hope this works from the remainder of the remaining group that none of the many suggestions worked. I found this solution BTW on the discussion board of OffceLab.

  23. Hi, I’m having trouble making the tool work. I see the globe icon, but after i click it, nothing happens and it just turns lighter.

    Can anyone help please???

  24. :idea: I found the solution for the malformed german characters (and french too, I hope).
    Load the source code and change one line in project WebberLib in file IOHelper.cs:
    from “System.IO.StreamWriter file = new System.IO.StreamWriter(strFileName, append);” to “System.IO.StreamWriter file = new System.IO.StreamWriter(strFileName, append,Encoding.Default);”.
    Compile and install it.

  25. Hi is there a HTML Converter tool which can be used for the OneNote 2010 version? I have a need to be able to save the full notebook as one HTML file so some of my external peers can view it without requiring them to purchase OneNote.

    Also – when converting to HTML – it seems the conversion removes the Search Feature. Is there a way to update the conversion tool to keep the search field. If not, is there a recommended code that we can put into the Index file.

  26. IS it possible to get an update of this for 2010?
    We would love to have this funtionality to use with sharepoint!

    Please!!

  27. Has there been any progress on creating and export to web version for 2010?

    Thank you.
