OneNote Search and Replace

OneNote Search and Replace

  • Comments 60

It is Friday evening after a nice long busy week and I got permission to release another powertoy!  This powertoy is the OneNote Search and Replace feature so please check it out.  I know a few people have asked for this on the newsgroup as well as via the comments section.  Perfect for when code names change (think Longhorn-->Vista).  This powertoy was written by an superstar OneNote developer so a big round of applause for Jeffrey; thank you much for coding this and letting me release this.

How it works

  1. Download the application from here: OneNoteSearchReplace.zip
  2. Extract the application and run the setup.exe
  3. You will now have a new toolbar button in OneNote which looks like this:

  4. Click the button and you will see a window like this:

  5. Now you can choose your search terms and what scope.
  6. Click Preview and Replace to try it out!

Remember all powertoys available from this blog are AS IS and are not supported by Microsoft. 

Please use at your own risk, but please do enjoy!  Have a great weekend all!

  • Hey Daniel. Good idea but the folks at GBM are reporting it's not UMPC-friendly at 800x480 any chance for supporting that resolution?

  • Josh - Yes sadly it seemed to be hard coded, that is why this is a powertoy since it isn't as polished as most things Microsoft officially releases.  Sorry about that but alas..."AS IS"  BTW sorry to be unhelpful but there is really all I can do.  Otherwise I hope it works well...take care.

  • Just last week I was looking for Search and Replace.  I couldn't find it.  I started to blog about it and was going to ping you with a big, old, WHY CAN'T I SEARCH AND REPLACE?  I got a little distracted with other work and didn't send it yet.  Great timing and nice to find this now!

    Now I can delete that draft post.  :)

  • After I install it, I don't see any new button in OneNote. I just uninstalled and reinstalled it just to make sure I didn't do anything wrong. There's a folder in my Programs directory called "OneNote Search and Replace" with files such as an icon, dll and an executable. I just can't figure out how to get the button in OneNote.

  • I installed it and it just says Search Failed no matter what I try to search for and what options I set.  OneNote2007...

  • Same problem as Joel. Installed it on OneNote 2007 on Vista Business and no matter what I try searching for, I get a "Search failed".

  • Some other people have reported that if you never installed Desktop search 3.0 you get "search failed". Maybe that solves it?
