Using OneNote? You Need This Free Add-In.

OneNote windowI'm a long-time user of Microsoft OneNote. I've got around 600 pages of important notes in it, and I refer to it many times every day. For security, safety and flexibility, I keep my OneNote files in Dropbox so that they're easily accessible from whichever PC I happen to be using at the time.

But as good as OneNote is, it lacks certain key features. For example, in 2010 it's not possible to sort a table.

Which is why, if you're a regular user, it's well worth checking out a free add-in called Onetastic. On its own, Onetastic adds loads of useful new features to OneNote to help you format and find your information. There's also a web site called Macroland, full of additional features which add even more functions to the basic Onetastic installation. Once you've installed Onetastic, which is a 5 MB download, just download any additional macros from Macroland and, when you click on the downloaded file, the macro will be automatically imported into Onetastic and added to OneNote.

Onetastic is a free download of 5 MB from http://omeratay.com/onetastic/ and is malware-free according to VirusTotal and Web of Trust.

Once installed, head to http://omeratay.com/onetastic/?r=macroland to find additional macros for it.

And if you don't have OneNote yet, you'll find it at https://www.onenote.com/Download Although it used to be a paid-for part of Microsoft Office, it's now free.

As far as I like Onenote, it's not an ideal platform for tables, even with this add-on. It's much better to use something native, like Excel or Google Sheets for better functionality.
