Can You Align Items Scanned Into OneNote?
The answer to the question, "Can you align items scanned into OneNote?" is "Yes." to show how this works, scan a couple images directly into OneNote. To do this, open OneNote on your computer, open a notebook (or create a new one) and then create a new page.
Finding the "Scanner Printout" option can be tricky, depending on you your OneNote is set up. If you do not have the scanner icon on the ribbon, click on the down arrow to the right of the icons on the quick access toolbar and then choose "More Commands" to customize the quick access toolbar.
After that, in the "OneNote Options" window, choose "Quick Access Tool Bar" in the left panel. Set the combo box at the top for "All Commands" and then find "Scanner Printer" in the left column, click on it to highlight it, and then click the "Add" button in the center. Your scanner icon will now be in the quick access toolbar. Click the "OK" button to close the window.
Next, click the "Scanner Printer" icon to open the scanner dialog. Depending on which scanner you are using, this window may look different. Most of the time, the "Custom Insert" button is preferable because you get to define the area of the scan that is actually imported into OneNote.
Follow the on-screen directions as your scanner's driver scans an image and places it in OneNote. You will see it appear on your notebook page. Now, select the container holding your image and click the "Add Space" icon from the "Insert" tab on the ribbon. Do this a couple times and then scan in another image so we can work on alignment. It is important to scan all images that you want aligned into the same container. Here's what your page might look like now.
