Merge Pages PowerToy

A powertoy from Jeff Cardon, one of the OneNote Testers…

Takes selected pages in OneNote and at the click of a button it will merge all of the pages together into one page.

A screenshot of what it looks like in the toolbar:

Some notes: there is a popup dialog which explains Undo is not supported.  You can disable this dialog if you want, and I recommend disabling it as soon as you get comfortable with the implications that Undo is not supported.  There is another warning if you merge more than 10 pages at a time.  Again, you can disable this warning.

 

The reason I suggest disabling those warning are this is another managed code addin, so we cannot control focus of the confirmation dialogs.  If you click the button and it looks like nothing happened, look “behind” OneNote to see the dialog.  It’s easier just to live without the dialogs when you merge pages.

 

When installing, as usual, exit OneNote, run setup.exe and choose to install for all users.

  1. Bug Report: I just installed this OneNote powertoy. While it successfully makes a page a subpage, it also moves that page to the highest section group level within that notebook (undesired effect).

  3. I'm not having much success with this Powertoy. You have no idea what the merged pages will look like until you go ahead and merge them. If the result is not good (as I have experienced each time), you are out of luck, as it is not possible to undo the merge.

    I think I'm going to uninstall this Powertoy until/unless I see a powerful reason to use it. It has virtually the same icon as the Subpage powertoy and is too easily used mistakenly.

    Does this work with 64bit? I installed the addin and it shows up in the list of installed addins but I don’t get a toolbar button. I also looked through the list of toolbar buttons and couldn’t find it.
    Don’t know if it matters but the prog installs to:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\OneNote Page Merge

    btw I had the same problem with another powertoy “Table of Contents”

    Thanks to anyone who can help

  6. Fantastic blog! I truly enjoy how it? s easy on my eyes also because the data are properly written. I’m questioning how i might be notified when a new publish continues to be created. I have subscribed to your rss feed which require to complete the trick! Have a great day!

  7. i am interested in this power toy to try to merge the same page that was duplicated (and then individually edited). i want to merge the two pages but only keep the unique data between the two so i can get rid of the duplicate page but not lose any data or have any data duplicated on the new merged page.

    does this work that way or does it just paste the contents of the “second” page on the bottom of the “first” page the delete the “second” page?

  8. This is a wonderful article, Given so much info in it, These type of articles keeps the users interest in the website, and keep on sharing more … good luck.

  9. Thoroughly clean the attire of Karen Millen in accordance with the care label.
