Copy Text from an Office 2016 Application into OneNote 2016

By Peter Weverka

The Office 2016 applications offer a special command for copying the text in a file into OneNote 2016. This special command is located in, of all places, the Print window. Follow these steps to copy text in a Word document, Excel spreadsheet, or PowerPoint presentation into OneNote:

  1. Open the Word, Excel, or PowerPoint file with the text you want to copy.

  2. On the File tab, choose Print. The Print window opens.

  3. On the Printer drop-down menu, choose Send to OneNote.

    If you don’t want to copy all the text, enter a page range in the Pages text box.

  4. Click the Print button. The Select Location in OneNote dialog box opens.


  5. Select the page in OneNote where you want to copy the text and click OK.
