Here's a cool new feature in OneNote 2013 that allows you to capture portions of a screen that you might want to place into a Notebook here in OneNote. Let's go to a website, we're going to go to a Flickr site here for No Obstacle Sport and we do have some time items that we might want captured here and added to one of our Notebook pages. Well, to do that all we need is a keyboard shortcut, which is the Windows Key+N. As soon as you do that, a little pop-up appears at the bottom of your screen with three options.
Screen Clipping is the first, we can click it or use the letter S on the keyboard, you could also Send directly to OneNote the entire page or create a New Quick Note from here. So really, it doesn't matter what you're looking at. What we want to do is capture a portion of this screen, so we'll use the Screen Clipping option the first one, and we'll give it a click. And you'll notice what happens to the page you're looking at, it could be any page, any program. It goes dim in the background and now your mouse is a crosshair waiting for you to click and drag over the area you wish to capture.
Let's say we want to get the cool red shoes, so we click and drag across and down until we've encompassed everything we want saved, and when we release, we now have the ability to pick a section where we want to place this. Now it could on a page in a Notebook, if you have multiple sections and pages you can use the search field to search for the exact spot, or you can go down below, look at your Notebooks and start expanding various sections. So clicking the plus sign next to No Obstacles 2012 expands it to display the sections.
There's only one here, but when we click the plus sign next to it, we see the pages. Now we can select the page where we want to go and to send our selection to this particular spot in our Notebook, we go down to the bottom and click, Send to Selected Location. As soon as we do that, it's actually been copied there. Let's flip over to OneNote now and here on the branding page you can see our screen clipping appears. This is an object that we can move around on the page. We can resize it if we wanted to and we can start adding Notes to it as well.
So that's a handy new feature here in OneNote 2013 that allows you to capture any part of a screen that you might be looking at and add it to your OneNote Notebooks.
