Getting Started with Macros
Macros are small programs that can be used to perform simple repetitive tasks in OneNote very quickly. The idea is similar to macros in other Office applications which use VBA language. OneNote does not support VBA and Onetastic add-in provides a simple macro language and an editor to build macros.
The main mechanism under which macros operate is as following:
A macro consist of a list of statements which may look like this:
ForEach ($Paragraph in QueryObjects("Paragraph", GetCurrentPage())) If (String_Contains($Paragraph.author, "John")) $Paragraph.highlightColor = "yellow"
The above macro will highlight all paragraphs that is last edited by someone named John.
