New Feature: Image Crop

December 28, 2011
Have you ever clipped something from the web or pasted some image in OneNote and realized that it is not quite right? Word, PowerPoint and even Excel enjoys rich picture formatting features, while OneNote is about quickly capturing information and not much about fine detailed presentation of it. Still it wouldn't hurt to be able to crop an image you just captured to reduce the clutter and unwanted content.

Well, Onetastic now supports a new context menu item for images: Crop. Just right click on an image and select Crop at the bottom and you will be able to cut it the way you want.

Finally when you click Accept, your image on the page will be cropped and replaced. If you need to crop it further, you can keep doing so.

If you want to learn more about other features of Onetastic, read the earlier post here. If you want to get your hands on the add-in quickly head to the download page.

So have you installed Onetastic yet? How was your installation experience? Anybody had any issues? Do you prefer to access OneCalendar as a standalone app or from within OneNote? Are there other features you want to see either in the add-in or OneCalendar? Do you want to hear about how to develop tools for OneNote or my experience going through it? Let me know your comments below and help me improve it.

Fresh install of Onenote2016 and Onetastic (32bit) on Win10 with Anniversary Update
- Crop and Select Text from Image doesn't work. Its window doesn't show images at all. Crop returns 'The xml is invalid'.
Problem with many macros.
Please help me.

This is a much-needed add-in for OneNote! Thanks for making so many useful tools available to enhance OneNote capabilities. I'm really interested in a macro that can automatically include metadata when pasting images. I mostly would like to figure out how to include the date the photo was taken along with the size and original location of the file. I've looked at the macro editor feature and am not sure if this is something it can do. Any advice would be appreciated!

Once I crop an image the text within is no longer searchable.  What am I doing wrong?  Thank you!
