OneNote fans are in for some handy new features headed to the note-taking app over the rest of October. Microsoft this week announced several updates coming to OneNote for Windows 10, Mac, and on the web this month, including cloud attachments, tag search, and even an Emoji keyboard (via MSPU).
The biggest functional addition here is cloud attachments, which is headed to OneNote on Windows 10 and Mac. Essentially, cloud attachments allow you to ensure any file you add to a note will stay constantly updated to its latest version. Once enabled in OneNote's settings, attaching a file to a note will automatically upload it to OneDrive. Any changes made to the file will then be reflected on your note. And for Office documents, your OneNote notebook will display a live preview, showing updates in real time.
Also coming to Windows 10 and Mac is the ability to search tags in OneNote. Available by clicking the search button next to your notebook name, tag search will let you easily hone in on specific pages, sections, and notebooks that have been tagged with your search query.
On top of the Windows 10 and Mac tweaks, OneNote Online is getting its own set of enhancements. You'll now be able to insert pictures from your camera with the web version of the app, and the addition of an Emoji keyboard will help keep things playful. OneNote Online is also adding options to customize how autocorrect functions, and a new addition to the right-click menu will let you copy and share links to specific sections.
All of these features are set to roll out across OneNote in "the coming weeks."
