Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Note for .NET 1.2.0. From this release, the content manipulation features now offer a bit more control. This new build also allows developers to render a few more elements, for example tags, tasks, tables, attached documents and hyperlinks. The DocumentVisitor abstract class has been made more flexible. It supports start and end methods for the visiting elements of OneNote documents. This gives developers an easy approach for deciding which objects need to be visited for a given scenario.

Important Tag Notes

Microsoft Office OneNote users  can easily add tags to find important items buried in their notes, for example tag meeting decisions, ideas, definitions, key points, billable hours, questions, people’s names, books to read, and so on. The Aspose.Note for .NET API now supports rendering these tags when exporting OneNote documents to any supported file format. It also allows developers to programmatically access details about these tags. A note tag can specify the font and highlight colors for the text that is associated with the tag. Please see a complete example topic: Get Note Tag Details from a OneNote Document

Outlook Tasks from OneNote

In Microsoft Office OneNote, users can mark follow-up items from meetings or brainstorming notes as Outlook tasks. These Outlook tasks are being carried. Developers can now access and render these using the Aspose.Note API. A task tag marks an object as a follow-up item with a due date. Please have a look on this help example topic: Get Outlook Task Details from a OneNote Document

Table Support in the OneNote Documents

Users can organize their notes by arranging information in rows and columns as tables. The Aspose.Note API allows developers to export OneNote documents along with tables to any supported format. Developers can also access tables and their child elements. This example topic shows how to extract text from a table: Extracting Plain Text from the Table of OneNote Document

Retrieve Attached Files from OneNote Document

All files attached to a OneNote document can be retrieved. This feature is now supported. Developers can easily find attached files after converting OneNote documents via the Aspose.Note API. Please see the following topic for further help: Retrieve Attached Files from a OneNote Document

Preserving Hyperlinks

Aspose.Note preserves hyperlinks when the OneNote document is converted to any supported format.
