OneNote 2007: If you can print it, you can mark it

You can easily annotate or draw on printable content with the help of OneNote -- which is a great help when you're collaborating on a project. Mary Ann Richardson explains how to take advantage of this handy feature.

With OneNote 2007, you can type, draw, or handwrite on top of any file your computer can print. For example, say your manager has sent you a slide to review before the quarterly meeting. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the PowerPoint presentation slide (Figure A).

  1. Press Ctrl + P.
  2. In the Print dialog box, choose Send To OneNote from the Name drop-down list.
  3. Click OK.

OneNote opens and displays the Slide in a Side Note. You can now click anywhere in the slide and type over it or circle areas using drawing tools, just as if you were working with a printout (Figure B).

Anything that can be printed in Office 2007 can be "printed out" to OneNote, including Excel worksheets, Word documents, and Access reports.
