Updated 25/04/2018 – Single pages sharing not available anymore. See below the article for alternative.
You can embed a note into a web page (or blog), providing your CMS supports iFrame, like in this example below :
Simply get the link of the page you want to embed into OneNote UWP (share), and encapsulate your URL into the following html code snippet :
<iframe width=”560” height=”315” src=”your link” frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=”allowfullscreen”></iframe>
This feature is particularly helpful because it allows to keep the information published / shared in a blog post always updated, and easily updated while on the road with OneNote mobile without connecting to your CMS (wordpress in this case).
Also, you get the power (and freedom) to mix text with images with ink (although I noticed my ink is not shown at the same relative location with regards to text, on the web page and in the original note…).
Thanks to Marjolein Hoekstra for sharing this trick, and taking time to work it out for me !
This meant a lot to me, because when we discovered it wouldn’t work on my wordpress.com environment, after a minute of disapointment, I started considering moving to wordpress.org (hosted in Azure), which was a worthwhile endeavour on its own.
Marjolein managed to discover every detail of this feature, and make sence of the underlying limitations, and posted three separate articles :
- embedding a view-only OneNote page
- embedding a live-updated, publicly editable OneNote page?
- Embedding a full OneNote notebook from OneDrive for Business
Since January 2018, the note appears in a window with the navigation pane on the left : to remove it, in order to enlarge the note’ area and take advantage of the screen’ width, click on the hamburger menu (≡) :
and then on the following command (navigation pane icon) :
Finally, check the last option in the drop down menu (“Hide All“) :
As announced earlier, by June 1 all shared view-only page links generated from the #OneNote app for #Windows10 will expire. Here’s the notice you see now when you open such a link pic.twitter.com/HYusIu3zKB
