Microsoft updates OneNote Clipper browser add-on with new location picker and more

Microsoft has released a major update for its OneNote Clipper browser add-on. It brings the version number to 2.0 and includes a number of changes and additions for the web clipping content tool, including a new location picker feature.

Microsoft goes over how the location picker addition works, which was a popular request among current OneNote Clipper users:

"Previously, all clippings went to your Quick Notes section by default, however now you can select the notebook and section clippings get sent to. The Location Picker is front and center in the new Clipper, so you can be confident in knowing that your web clips are going exactly where you want them to go. We provide a list of all notebooks you have stored on OneDrive, including shared notebooks! To change where you want to store your web clipping, simply click the drop-down menu under Location. Expand the notebook of your choice and select the section you'd like to send your clip to.

OneNote Clipper 2.0 can also identify if a website has an article, a product or a recipe. It can clean up the page to show that content in a more organized format before sending it to OneNote. In addition, the Chrome extension now has a Region feature that lets users select a specific portion of a web page to clip and save. Microsoft says, "Just select Region mode from the Clipper user interface and then click and drag to select the area of the screen you'd like to clip."
