OneNote Printout Manager

OneNote Printout Manager

Yet another powertoy written by Jeff Cardon (*applause*) that will help you when you are printing a lot of documents to OneNote. I will just let his user guide speak for itself:

Installation:

  • Download from here: ONPrintManager.zip
  • Run Setup.exe and follow the prompts.
  • Run OneNote and click on the following button:

clip_image002

UI and options:

clip_image002[4]

Preview:

Changes made to any of the settings in the dialog are displayed in the preview pane. The preview pane will display up to 3 images per column. An elipses (…) is used to indicate that additional images may appear beneath the current set of images.

Printout size:

The Printout size slider control can be used to adjust the size of the printouts. The size range can be between 1% and 200%. 100% is the default size.

Printouts per page:

Use the Printouts per page option to specify that you want OneNote Printout Manager to separate a given number of printouts onto separate pages. The printouts per page can range from 1 to 99. When this control is checked, OneNote Printout Manager will create a new subpage after it reaches the image representing the value specified and continue execution. Each subpage will have the title of the original page with a sequential number appended to it. If the original page is untitled, OneNote Printout Manager will attempt to obtain the text inside the first printout on the page and use for the title. See Additional information below.

Set printouts as background:

Use the Set printouts to background option to set the printouts to be background images instead of floating images. When a printout is set to be a background image the printout is anchored to the page and notes can be added on top of the image without it moving or becoming selected.

Columns per page:

Use the Columns per page setting to determine the number of columns per page to organize your printouts in. The printouts are laid out in order from left to right. e.g. printout image #1 will appear in column 1, printout image #2 will appear in column 2, etc. Once the number of columns is reached, OneNote Printout Manager will repeat the process in the next row. e.g. printout image #3 will appear in column 1, printout image #4 will appear in column 2, etc.

Spacing between printouts:

Use the Spacing between printouts setting to specify the amount of space you want OneNote Printout Manager to put between each printout. The amount of space indicated will be used for both horizontal and vertical spacing. The value is expressed in points, where there are 72 points per inch.

Margins:

Use the Margins settings to specify the top and left margins. These values are expressed in points, where there are 72 points per inch.

Save current settings as default:

Use Save current settings as default to remember any changes you make for the next time you run OneNote Printout manager

Additional information.

Undo is not fully supported with this utility. You’ll find that making simple sizing, margin, spacing, columns or background changes to the printouts on a single page can be undone. However, organizing printouts onto separate pages cannot be fully undone. Therefore, a mechanism to restore your page to the last state before running the utility is provided using the Restore utility. This utility (restore.exe) is located in the install folder where you initially installed OneNote Printout Manager. You can simply run Restore.exe to restore the original page back to the section you are currently viewing.

This is great for those people who have been asking for this on the newsgroups as well as the many students who use OneNote. Hope you enjoy and once again thank you to Jeff Cardon who developed & tested this, nice work Jeff!

  3. Hi!

    Maybe I'm dense, but I'm having trouble getting this powertoy to work. Every time I try to use it, whether on a new page or an existing page, I get the message that “There are no print outs on this page!” What am I doing wrong?

  5. I am having the exact same problem with the OneNote Printout Manager as Evan outlined with the Make Subpage powertoy (Evan's post pasted below). I tried John's fix for the Make Subpage powertoy (also pasted below) to no avail with OneNote Printout Manger. Any suggestions?
    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for providing such a great tool but I am having some problems using it… I made sure OneNote was completely closed and then I installed the program. I then restarted OneNote 2007, selected a page and clicked on the “make subpage icon”. Nothing happened. The button then faded so that I could not use it. I checked under options and it does show the “make subpage” addin as being installed. I have tried disabling it and then re-enabling it to no avail. I also tried resinstalling the add-in. I really need to be able to use this function for school to properly organize my notes. Please help!

    Thanks,

    Evan

    I hit the same error just recently. Here’s what I did to fix it.

    Exited OneNote.
    Ran task manager (right click in a free area of the taskbar and select “Task Manager”) and ensured the process tab did not show OneNote.exe running
    uninstalled the addin
    looked in windowsassembly folder (which is probably hidden) and deleted the entry for OneNote Make Subpage
    reinstalled the addin
    made sure the dll was in the installed location (c:program filesmicrosoftmake subpage folder) and copied it to the windowsassembly folder as well
    start OneNote

    This worked for me. Since we cannot tell why this occurs, it’s hard to find a fix for it. Installing our addins to both locations seems to lessen the occurences, though, and we are troubleshooting from that point of view.

    Sorry for the poor experience,
    John

  7. I am having problems with the powertoy as well. It seems that when I import ppt's to onenote and use the printout manager I lose the ability to use instant search accurately. It will search and find those words I have typed and for some reason the first page of the ppt printouts, but not any of the others. I tried to just import like normal w/out printout manager and the instant search is working…any suggestions! Thanks so much!

  8. I wish to wish all pregnant women of good mood, easy pregnancy and natural sorts! Good luck also are happy! Give birth easily and independently! Let not doctors give birth for you, and you! Also adjust itself on chest feeding of the kid! Read the necessary information! Be, lovely pregnant mums and expecting posterities of the daddy, are healthy and wise!

  9. OneNoteのプラグインまとめ | Web scratch - pingback on June 12, 2010 at 8:00 pm
  10. Hey is there an updated one for 10? It’s recognizing that its an add in, but I can’t open it.

  11. DELTE ALL THIS OLD CRAP, THEY DON’T WORK
    IN LATEST VERSION OF MS OFFICE ONENOTE

  12. An update for ON 2010 would be great!

  13. I installed it successfully in ON 2010 but any time I attempt to use it it tells me the section of onenote is read only

  14. i cant find the icon to click. help.

  15. I’m in med school and get at least 4 powerpoint presentations per day. I would love a printout manager for 2010. I’ll even pay for it if I have to. Please update the Printout Manager to work with OneNote 2010!!!

  16. 0MG please upstate this! l cant use onenote without this addon

  17. for those of you using ON2010 and having problems just go into properties and convert your notebook to 2007 version.

    this worked for me

  18. I use this in Onenote 2010.

    1. Create a NEW notebook. Right click and convert to 2007 format.
    2. Copy printout into this new notebook
    3. use printout manager
    4. Copy the section (I drag it) to the notebook that you want it in (in 2010 format)

    Although an update would be great! :grin:

  19. The problem with converting to 2007 is that then you can’t sync the notebook between computers using Live Mesh.

  20. That’s right… so after you’ve used printout manager, just drag that section into a onenote 2010 file.

    You have to do into File > Select the Properties next to the file and then you can determine whether it is 207 or 2010 format.

  21. Additionally, grapeseed oil can help your skin
    heal, as it has mildly astringent and antiseptic properties,
    which also help to tighten and tone the skin, making it a good
    ingredient for anti-aging skin creams. It can help with the prevention
    and fading of scars and stretch marks. These particular changes
    in the early stages are not actually cancer, but in the later stages they can become cancerous.

  22. Would be nice to see this for onenote 2013. Was invaluable in 2010 (when it worked)

  23. How much time you devote to it each day will
    be based on your own desire and amount of time available.
    It may take some additional effort and energy, but
    you can learn these marketing techniques with just a bit of patience and time investment.
    The best way to use the above tip is to do the following: Find
    a list of keywords that are specific to your local business.
