This tool is an addition, an extension of OneNote and adds much needed functionality to OneNote.

Some of the Macros I use all the time:

Insert Monthly Calendar – This is an awesome macro which inserts a monthly calendar onto your one note page. I use this to create calendars for my reading, cooking, learning and activity logs. e.g. Look at my Reading logs posts .

Search and Replace – This macros helps search and replace text in the current page, section or notebook. I use this once in a while.

Word Count – Perfect for my morning pages or daily writing where I try to write a 1000 words. This macro helps me count the number of words. The lack of this functionality was why I looked at other digital note-taking software.

Word Count Selected – Counts the number of words in the selected portion of text. I use this heavily to count the words when I write my 200 words project posts

Sorting Macros – I use the sort pages and sort sections macro among these macros. I generally use them in my recipes notebook where I sort my recipes in alphabetical order.

These are just a few of the macros in Onetastic. If you use OneNote, you should definitely take a look.

Drawbacks: Works only on Windows. Not available for Mac OS X or phones. It would be awesome to have these functions replicated for OneNote on Mac.
